Bye Bye '--password': Making the CLI more secure

A Paper Shredder

There is a new project of the Administration Infrastructure group. This project is intended to increase the security of the adminstration of of GlassFish. In particular, this proposal ensures that no Reusable Password is specified on command line in cleartext and passwords are not read from environment of a command shell. All good things, cleartext has to be managed very carefully, just ask Enron!.

Kedar Mhaswade has started writing about the adminstration experience and pointed this project out.

Securiy, Administration,
