Subject [jira] [Commented] (KARAF-5316) Jaas Encryption should be easier to use
Date Tue, 22 Aug 2017 14:30:00 GMT

Christian Schneider commented on KARAF-5316:
--------------------------------------------

I will leave the current public methods of EncryptionSupport as deprecated so current modules
outside of karaf still work.

>    Affects Versions: 4.2.0

> Currently the EncryptionSupport is difficult to use. Each module needs to check the presence
of EncryptionSupport and an Encryption module and also check the prefixes and suffixes.
> I propose to have one method exposed by the EncryptionSupport:
> String encrypt(String plain)
> This method checks if plain is already encrypted and encrypts with the selected Encryption.
It also handles the !enabled or no suitable EncryptionSupport case.
> Besides that I propose a public static EncryptionSupport noEncryptionSupport() that can
be called instead of setting the encryptionSupport=null in modules. This allows to leave out
null checks.
