Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-1135) Keystore password in System.properties
Date Wed, 16 Nov 2005 19:32:28 GMT

Kevan Miller commented on GERONIMO-1135:
----------------------------------------

>From my scan of the code, looks like the properties are being set by security\src\java\org\apache\geronimo\security\SecurityServiceImpl.java

This isn't my cup-of-tea, but it seems that the properties are the only mechanism for specifying
these passwords.

I've seen some doc (http://java.sun.com/products/jsse/install.html) that implies the System
properties are cleared when the default SSLContext and default TrustManagerFactory are initialized.
So, it may be a matter of performing the appropriate initialization and the appropriate time.
Barring that, we'd need to have the security manager block access.

I'll have a look...

 I'm not sure who puts them in there, but we need to find a way to stop that -- or else prevent
applications from reading them?
