Subject [jira] Updated: (OPENJPA-1089) Provide for password encryption within persistence.xml
Date Thu, 23 Jul 2009 18:56:14 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OPENJPA-1089?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Rick Curtis updated OPENJPA-1089:
---------------------------------

    Attachment: OPENJPA-1089.PATCH

I created a plugin that allows a user to implement a EncryptionProvider interface so the OpenJPA
runtime will call their interface to decrypt openjpa.Connection(2)Password values. Please
take a look and let me know what you think. If everything looks good I'll fix up the user
manual.

> A recent discussion on our users forum [1] has surfaced (again) the need to encrypt the
password fields in the persistence.xml.  In the particular scenario outlined in the posting,
this user wanted to encrypt the password sent into Apache DBCP via the url string.  In my
mind, that's a separate problem related to DBCP.
> But, OpenJPA has openjpa.Connection*Password properties that could be encrypted.  And,
the new JPA 2 spec outlines a javax.persistence.jdbc.password property that would be nice
to encrypt.
> I'm opening this Issue as a Feature request, but it could also be considered a bug since
a non-jndi environment is crippled from a security standpoint.
