Subject Re: How to mask/encrypt values sent as an HTTP request parameter
Date Tue, 05 Oct 2010 19:00:24 GMT
need Source code modification as far as I know BUT
 Whats preventing a user from adding a debug sampler? whats preventing a
user from invoking the same code that decrypts the password ? What security
have you really added? If you really wanted the password to be secure (which
is the policies intent rather than it is not viewable) you will have to work
at an OS level.

If these are critical passwords then why not let the user enter the password
(either at launch time or by modifying the test) (usually not feasible for
Db passwords but may be feasible for website logins).
