Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1636) document encryption of an un-encrypted database and re-encryption with new password/key.

Sunitha Kambhampati commented on DERBY-1636:
--------------------------------------------

Hi Laura, 

I looked at the zip files derby1636_devguide_html and derby1636_ref_html and here are some
of my minor comments. With derby-1156 feature,  now we can encrypt an existing unencrypted
database and encrypt an existing encrypted database.   I think it might be good to explicit
mention , what attributes are needed when encrypting an unencrypted database and what is needed
for encrypting an encrypted database..   

Thanks. 
----------------
FILE: cdevcsecure97760.html
1)Title change to explicitly say "Encrypting an existing unencrypted database" 
2)Title "Encrypting databases with a new boot password" , "Encrypting databases with a new
external key"
I think it might be good to put these two links as sublinks to a link with title "Encryption
an existing encrypted database" 
Then we would have something like:
Encrypting an existing database
	You can encrypt an encrypted database with a new bootPassword or external key.
	Encrypting databases with a new boot password
	....
	Encrypting databases with a new external key
	...

FILE: tdevcsecureunencrypteddb.html
3)I think this statement
"When you encrypt an existing, unencrypted database, you can specify whether the database
is encrypted using a boot password or an encryption key." 
should be
"
When you encrypt an existing, unencrypted database, you can specify whether the database should
be encrypted using a boot password or an encryption key."


FILE: tdevcsecurenewextkey.html
4)I think it may be better to say "To encrypt" instead of "To encrypting" in 
this line"To encrypting a database with a new external key:"

---------------
file:rrefattrib15290.html
5)Change the first line in function to explicitly say , configure an existing unencrypted
database for encryption.
"Specifies data encryption on disk for a new database or to configure an existing unencrypted
database for encryption."

With derby-1622 we have the encryptionKey=key doc changes. Please add that here.
The dataEncryption attribute must be combined with the bootPassword=key attribute or the encryptionKey=key
attribute.

In the examples also, better to say explicitly that to configure an existing unencrypted database.
 -- configure an existing unencrypted database for encryption 

6)file:rrefattrib42100.html
Function:
Explicitly mention both in examples and in function, 
that to configure an existing unencrypted database for encryption.

Where we have 'configure an existing database for encryption' use 'configure an existing unencrypted
database for encryption' to make it clear. 

Similarly for the other files in this zip file for reference guide. 

7)Also please change the encryptionKey=Key page also that got committed with 1622. 
rrefattribencryptkey.html
In function, change this "Configure an existing database for encryption" to "Configure an
existing unencrypted database for encryption"

In 'combining with other attributes', for the statement starting with "When you configure
an existing database for encryption..". Remove the next line. I think there is no need to
specify this specifically here about encryptionAlgorithm because now we are explicitly talking
about unencrypted database. 

--------
FILE: rrefattribnewbootpw.html
8)Change this "Specifies a new boot password for a database. " to 
say 
"Specifies a new boot password for an encrypted database." 

FILE:file:rrefattribnewencryptkey.html
Add the word encrypted. So change this " Specifies a new external encryption key for a database"
to 
say
"Specifies a new external encryption key for an encrypted database"
