Subject [jira] Commented: (JSPWIKI-205) Obfuscate on disk content type
Date Fri, 07 Mar 2008 11:43:47 GMT


John Volkar commented on JSPWIKI-205:

Perhaps a page filter is the most expedient means for this.  

Adopt a wiki convention, perhaps based on a style block?

My password is XXXXXX

Have the filter encrypt/obfuscate/mangle any text in that style on its way down to disk, then
undo it on its way back up into the wiki.  You could even have it only un-encrypt based on
user or authentication status if you want.

It woudl feel very weird to me to have a repository wide encryption policy in place; but that
should be possible with a Jackrabbit backend.

on disk. 
> As an addition  have a secondary password to display/edit the encrypted contents on disk
for those who do not want to use wiki security on the page.

would be a small price to pay for security.
