Environment: all

Description:
When using derby database encryption,there is a provision to provide the key to be used for
encryption as an external key. In this case the key is not stored in the database for added
security.  

There should not be any useful information about the external key that was used for encrypting
the database in the service.properties.
Right now, key length is stored in service.properties. This should not be stored in service.properties.
