> It seems that the obfuscation tool uses a symmetric encoding with password and salt to
obfuscate/deobfuscate passwords. I can see that there is a way to change the salt with a property,
but it seems that the password is hardcoded in the source code.In order to try to improve
security in MCF, I would like to be able to store the password (that is currently hardcoded)
used for obfuscation in a specific configuration file. The aim of this approach is to be able
to change it but also to be able to add specific linux access right on it.
