Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5805) Database encryption topics in Reference Manual need more information
Date Fri, 21 Sep 2012 21:17:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5805?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13460822#comment-13460822
] 

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

The Developer's Guide section on DB encryption has a topic called "Creating the boot password"
that doesn't discuss the possibility of using the encryptionKey attribute instead of the bootPassword
attribute, although encryptionKey is mentioned in some other topics. The topic should be retitled
and rewritten. Perhaps "Specifying a boot password or encryption key" would be better.

> 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.
> In general, the topics on database encryption attributes need additional information,
corrections, and examples.
