Description Jay Shaughnessy 2010-03-26 10:40:48 EDT
Customer request to add obfuscation for the comm and ssl passwords in rhq-server.properties.

Note, rhq-db password obfuscation is already being implemented. See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=535601.

10:32:34 AM) mazz: for the record, that would require some amount of non-trivial work to get the obfuscated keystore/truststore passwords into the rhq comm layer
(10:33:12 AM) mazz: at the very least, we'd have to have some kind of "salt" inside the comm java code like we have in the license stuff


Also, note the following about Tomcat and AS embedded Tomcat

"BTW: looks like jboss added this obfuscation feature to the embedded tomcat connector config

http://community.jboss.org/wiki/EncryptKeystorePasswordInTomcatConnector

so while tomcat doesn't support it, jboss does (for the tomcat it embeds)"
