Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: The passwords for the keystore and truststore were being passed to EAP as system properties Consequence: As system properties, they are passed to the executable in plain text as "-D" parameters. This means the passwords could be leaked via something like the 'ps' command. Fix: The passwords are now being set in a system property file. Result: The passwords are not longer able to be leaked using something like the 'ps' command.
