Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1636) document encryption of an un-encrypted database and re-encryption with new password/key.
Date Thu, 17 Aug 2006 20:21:14 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1636?page=comments#action_12428779 ] 
            
Laura Stewart commented on DERBY-1636:
--------------------------------------

I have a concern about where the encryption information is located in the Developers Guide.
It appears in 2 sections and in some cases there are topics with different content but with

the same titles.

There is this section:
JDBC applications and Derby basics -->Derby embedded basics -->Working with the database
connection URL attributes  
that has these topic titles:
--Using the databaseName attribute 
--Shutting down Derby or an individual database 
--Creating and accessing a database 
--Providing a user name and password 
--Encrypting a database when you create it 
--Booting an encrypted database 
--Specifying attributes in a properties object 

Then there is this section:
Derby and Security -->Encrypting databases on disk -->Working with encryption 
that has these topic titles:
--Encrypting databases on creation 
--Creating the boot password 
   --Specifying an alternate encryption provider 
   --Specifying an alternate encryption algorithm 
--Booting an encrypted database 
--Changing the boot password 

I have created these new topics:
--Encrypting an existing database
--Encrypting databases with a new boot password
--Encrypting databases with a new external key
and have them located under the section Derby and Security -->Encrypting databases on disk
-->Working with encryption
but we should take a hard look this information and the links that  exist between these sections
and also avoid any duplication of information.
