Subject [jira] Commented: (CONTINUUM-2579) Ability to handle encoded password to ContinuumXmlRpcClient contructor
Date Fri, 03 Dec 2010 03:34:03 GMT


Warner B. Piñero commented on CONTINUUM-2579:

I'm thinking of allowing encoded password in connecting to continuum using ContinuumXmlRpcClient
without the user intervention, since encoded password from my continuumusers db can't be decoded
   continuumClient = new ContinuumXmlRpcClient( new URL( url ), "user1", "IqKJr5PwVcvGLC8WklmjrnFZdOJig43Q"

If this will be possible, passwords in my continuuusers db have to be encoded with the same
algorithm used by the Continuum.
My workaround is using Jasypt encryption library to encrypt passwords using algorithm that
can decrypt passwords so that  plain text password can be passed to ContinuumXmlRpcClient.
But this is not safe.
