Subject [jira] [Commented] (KARAF-2754) all password should be encrypted when encryption.enabled is true
Date Wed, 12 Feb 2014 13:26:19 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KARAF-2754?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13899080#comment-13899080

Jean-Baptiste Onofré commented on KARAF-2754:

Hi Freeman,

are you sure about your change, especially the way to change the password (and putting in
clear) ?

I gonna test it (or maybe you already tested it ?).

I agree to call encrypt password at "startup" to crypt all passwords in a row, but users may
want to re-type the password in clear (without the prefix/suffix, {CRYPT} by default) in order
to "re-encrypt" it again.

Thanks anyway !

> However if  there will be 100s of users defined inside the "etc/users.properties" file
then it becomes security hole and complex to connect to Karaf one by one using different credentials
in order to get the encrypted passwords inside the file "etc/users.properties", we should
encrypt them all as one goal if we set encryption.enabled = true
