Description (partial)

Cisco DNA Center's credential-manager service's logs always show these errors:

decrypted = cipher.decrypt(encrypted).decode('utf-8')\nUnicodeDecodeError: 'utf-8' codec can't decode byte 0xa1 in position 1: invalid start byte"}

This was first reported in Cisco DNA Center, but observed in earlier releases, as well.
