Connect Direct File Agent: Encryption and Decryption of keystore and truststore password
To setup client certifcate authentication for the File Agent, keystore and truststore passwords are required to be specified in clear text either on the command line or in a .lax file. Since the passwords are in clear text, this creates a security exposure in that the keystore, truststore, private keys can be compromised and potentially compromise the Connect Direct server and the data that is managed by Connect Direct.
Please enhance File Agent so that it can encrypt / decrypt the keystore and truststore passwords and no longer depend on clear text passwords.
What is your industry?
How will this idea be used?
Sensitive data flows through the Connect Direct environment. The File agent is used to trigger external tasks and process this data.
