Subject [jira] [Commented] (BROOKLYN-15) web-console authentication: store hashed passwords in brooklyn.properties

    Is it worth allowing username/password to be given as command line arguments? As it stands
the command can't be automated, which will be a pain to someone eventually.

> The brooklyn web-console can do user authentication - this can point at an enterprise
LDAP server, or can use the quick-and-easy username:password defined in the ~/.brooklyn/brooklyn.properties
file.
> However, the passwords in brooklyn.properties are currently stored in plain text. Instead,
it should be hashed (using the username as a salt).
> I suggest we use SHA 256 for now. One can generate the password from the (linux / OSX)
command line with:
>     echo -n aled:mypassword | shasum -a 256
> In our code, we can then use guava's Hashing with something like:
>     Hashing.sha256().hashBytes(Charsets.US_ASCII.encode("aled:mypassword").array())
> (but note that UTF_8 is appending an extra `0` to the bytes, so gives a different sha256!
Is using US_ASCII going to be a bad idea?!)
> The brooklyn.properties file could have:
>     brooklyn.webconsole.security.users=aled
>     brooklyn.webconsole.security.user.admin.sha256=0dfecb1ab5426c781ec42e1c7cc98468975aed0dd28f9d9668237a9c7996862d
>     
> Much longer term, we could consider using https://shiro.apache.org/ or equivalent (but
that is out of scope for this feature request).
