>    Affects Versions: Trunk
>            Reporter: Jacques Le Roux
>            Assignee: Jacques Le Roux

> When OFBIZ-4983 was implemented I missed that we put the login.secret_key_string as a
property in security properties. This should not have been because it eases attackers work.
> The recommended way is to have it as a private static final String that can be changed
just when compiling using sed and uuidgen. So then the key is temporay and final and it gets
quite harder for a possible attacker to use this mean.
