Subject Entry serialization
Date Mon, 14 Jan 2008 16:50:30 GMT
Hi guys,

as I need to rewrite the serialization for ServerEntry, ServerAttribute, 
ServerValue, DN, RDN and AttributeTypeAndValue, I have had some ideas, 
and I would like to know your opinion :

- what about adding a flag to tell the serialization methods (those 
classes are Externalizable) to encrypt/decrypt the data on disk ? Tis 
would be a much better solution than to define an encryption option to 
be added to all the attributes (like "cn;encrypted=fR5*za"). All the 
data will be encrypted before being serialized to disk. It would be off 
by default, of course

- what about adding another attribute (operational) which will contain 
the Entry signature? This will ensure that the data won't be modified

wdyt ?

PS: this *won't* be added to the 2.0 version...

cordialement, regards,
Emmanuel L├ęcharny
