             Summary: Add the ability to store connections passwords in a password-protected
keystore
                 Key: DIRSTUDIO-901
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSTUDIO-901
             Project: Directory Studio
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: studio-connection
            Reporter: Pierre-Arnaud Marcelot
            Assignee: Pierre-Arnaud Marcelot
             Fix For: 2.0.0-M7, 2.0.0


Add the ability to store connection passwords in a password-protected keystore.

At the moment, connection passwords are stored alongside other connection parameters (like
host or port) in the "connections.xml" file.
This file is not encrypted and passwords are then stored in plain text and visible to anyone.
While it's very handy because the passwords are always remembered and the users doesn't have
to type them anymore, it would be useful to have a way to store those passwords in a password-protected
keystore.
This keystore would need to be unlock when accessing a connection password for the first time.
