Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5805) More context for bootPassword and encryptionKey attributes would be helpful
Date Wed, 19 Sep 2012 21:10:08 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5805?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13459102#comment-13459102
] 

Kim Haase commented on DERBY-5805:
----------------------------------

I've been looking at the Reference Manual documentation on the encryption-related attributes
for both this issue and the anticipated documentation for DERBY-5792 (decryption). (See (http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/dev/ref/.)

It appears that you can specify the encryptionProvider and encryptionAlgorithm attributes
with either bootPassword or encryptionKey, according to the topic on the dataEncryption attribute.
However, the topics on encryptionProvider and encryptionAlgorithm do not mention the encryptionKey
attribute, implying that they only work with bootPassword. Should those topics be corrected?


Also, in the encryptionKey topic, the only example of an encryptionAlgorithm uses the default
algorithm. Seems as if it would be more realistic to change this to a nondefault one.

> The Developer's Guide and Reference Manual information on the bootPassword and encryptionKey
attributes doesn't state (not prominently, anyway) that these properties are mutually exclusive,
as Rick Hillegas points out in his 6/8/2012 comment on DERBY-5622. This information should
be included in the documentation for these properties.
