Subject [jira] [Commented] (KARAF-4880) Can't use Client from a script when passwords are encrypted
Date Thu, 08 Dec 2016 17:18:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KARAF-4880?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15732804#comment-15732804
] 

Paul McCulloch commented on KARAF-4880:
---------------------------------------

"With clear text passwords client reads the passwords from users.properties."
Not quite true  - with clear passwords & no -u option specified an arbitrary user is chosen
from the properties file & logged in. The user chosen is determined by the iteration order
of a HashSet (which is undefined).

> Without the old -p option there is no straightforward way to use the client to connect
to a karaf using encrypted password authentication.
> With clear text passwords client reads the passwords from users.properties.
> My use case is an (izpack) installer which uses the client to add features & apply
configurations. The installer prompts the user for admin account details & should pass
these to the client. 
> Using SSH keys is problematic I believe. I would need the user (or the installer) to
keep a copy of the key generated on initial installation for use in subsequent upgrades.
> My installer is cross platform, so relying on open SSH etc. as a workaround is problematic.
> The -p option was removed from client as part of KARAF-1475 (https://github.com/apache/karaf/commit/d6838dd5a12a13b99c534981273abdbbee5b7f22)
