Subject [jira] [Commented] (CXF-6262) LoggingInterceptor logs password when using UsernameToken with plaintext password
Date Thu, 19 Feb 2015 21:07:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CXF-6262?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14328127#comment-14328127

Mark Anderson commented on CXF-6262:
------------------------------------

We do override and mask off the passwords. I was just wondering whether this was a feature
worthy of inclusion in CXF itself.

> The LoggingInterceptor will log the password when UsernameToken with plaintext password
is used.
> Could the password text be masked (even optionally) in the logging output as this could
be viewed as a security issue in some environments. For example https is used to protect the
password on the wire but it could then be intercepted by changing logging levels.
