Encrypted passwords in app properties files

Hi, Cuba-Platform team

Is there the functionality to encrypt and decrypt automatically passwords stored in app.properties files into the Cuba-Platform new features roadmap ?

It could be very necessary for improving the security level of the applications developed by Cuba-Platform and avoiding doing encrypting and decrypting actions by code.

Hi Xavier,

Do you have ideas how such values could be encrypted?
Where decryption password should be stored?
If both encrypted value and decryption password are stored in the same place (in the same DB, in the source code of the same project), then encryption is fake, it is just “security through obscurity”.
