Subject [jira] Created: (GERONIMO-3111) pluggable Password Encryption mechanism for Apache Geronimo.
Date Mon, 23 Apr 2007 18:09:15 GMT
pluggable Password Encryption mechanism for Apache Geronimo.

                 Key: GERONIMO-3111
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Improvement
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: security
    Affects Versions: 2.0-M3, 2.0-M2, 2.0-M1, 1.1.1, 1.1.2, 1.1.x, 1.2, 1.x, 2.0-M4, 2.0-M5
         Environment: All platforms & JDKs
            Reporter: Phani Balaji Madgula

I am involved in developing a J2EE application which is targeted to be deployed on Apache
Geronimo 1.1.1. 
We have some concerns pertaining to the clear text passwords in <AG_HOME>/var/security/
This makes 
admin console accessible to all those who have access to <AG_home>/var/security/

What would want instead is, a password encryption using a pluggable encryption key. This enables
customers to configure their own encryption keys that can be used for all security realms(configurable
This contributes to the server's readiness for enterprise applications out-of-box.

We are currently planning to use custom login modules for all security needs. 
But, having the above feature in the server will eliminate the need for the same.
