In any WSO2 product that is based on Carbon 4.4.0 or a later version, the Cipher Tool feature will be installed by default. You can use this tool to easily encrypt passwords or other elements in configuration files.
Note the following before you begin:
- If you are a developer who is building a Carbon product, see the topic on enabling Cipher Tool for password encryption for instructions on how to include the Cipher Tool as a feature in your product build.
- The default keystore that is shipped with your WSO2 product (i.e.
wso2carbon.jks) is used for password encryption by default. See this link for details on how to set up and configure new keystores for encrypting plain text passwords.
Before you begin
If you are using Windows, you need to have Ant (http://ant.apache.org/) installed before using the Cipher Tool.
