11.13.1. Password Vault System
JBoss EAP 6 has a Password Vault to encrypt sensitive strings, store them in an encrypted keystore, and decrypt them for applications and verification systems.
Plain-text configuration files, such as XML deployment descriptors, need to specify passwords and other sensitive information.
Use the JBoss EAP Password Vault to securely store sensitive strings in plain-text files.
