Secure passwords in files
Password encoding and encryption deters the casual observation of passwords in server configuration and property files. The following topics can be used to add protection for passwords located in files:
- Encode passwords in files WAS contains some encoded passwords that are not encrypted. The PropFilePasswordEncoder utility is included to encode these passwords. For more information on encoding passwords in a file, see Encode passwords in files.
- Enable custom password encryption You need to protect passwords that are contained in your WAS configuration. We can added protection by creating a custom class for encrypting the passwords. For more information on custom password encryption, see Enable custom password encryption.
