Subject [jira] Commented: (JSPWIKI-205) Obfuscate on disk content type
Date Fri, 07 Mar 2008 22:37:46 GMT


Janne Jalkanen commented on JSPWIKI-205:

Um.  Wouldn't something like LDAP suit you better?  Storing passwords in wikipages sounds
very, very hazardous to me.  Typically, passwords are not encrypted but hashed in such a way
that they cannot be converted to plaintext anymore.

However, if you do need encrypted storage, it would be relatively trivial to make your own
EncryptedFileProvider by just simply adding encryption onto one of the existing providers.
 But I don't see much use for it in the core, frankly.  I don't think it provides any real
security though.

on disk.

for those who do not want to use wiki security on the page.

would be a small price to pay for security.
