Subject Re: Store password for config safely?
Date Tue, 13 Feb 2018 23:32:02 GMT
I think Ferenc has been looking at something related to this, or perhaps is
trying to get an existing patch merged (FLUME-2442
<https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLUME-2442>, PR 197
<https://github.com/apache/flume/pull/197>). I haven't been following that
work closely so I don't know if it's exactly what you're looking for, but
maybe he can chime in here.
