Subject [jira] [Commented] (FELIX-4599) Support Encryption Of Configuration Properties
Date Tue, 05 Aug 2014 12:24:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-4599?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14086183#comment-14086183

J.W. Janssen commented on FELIX-4599:

Interesting point. Note that if the ConfigAdmin is going to be responsible for encrypting/decrypting
the values, then it is fairly easy to recover the confidential information from another bundle.
Alternatively, you could decrypt the configuration values in your component in which case
the ConfigAdmin does not have to be modified at all: it simply passes an encrypted string...

> Currently it is not possible to define configuration properties, the contents of which
should be automatically encrypted upon save by the configuration admin.
> An example would be a mail server configuration, where SMTP credentials must specified
and the password should be encrypted upon saving the configuration. The encrypted password
should then be accessible and decryptable in the component to which the configuration is bound.
