---------------------------------------

             Summary: Privacy Violation: Heap Inspection
                 Key: KARAF-4200
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KARAF-4200
             Project: Karaf
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 4.0.3
            Reporter: Eduardo Aguinaga


HP Fortify and SciTools Understand were used to perform an application security scan on the
karaf source code.

The method login() in JDBCLoginModule.java stores sensitive data in a String object on line
95, making it impossible to reliably purge the data from memory.

JDBCLoginModule.java, lines 88-96:
88 user = ((NameCallback) callbacks[0]).getName();
89 
90 char[] tmpPassword = ((PasswordCallback) callbacks[1]).getPassword();
91 if (tmpPassword == null) {
92     tmpPassword = new char[0];
93 }
94 
95 String password = new String(tmpPassword);
96 principals = new HashSet<>();
