Subject [jira] Commented: (IBATISNET-160) Decrypting layer in order to use crypted xml config files; tool to encrypt the xml files; embeded xml files

------------------------------------------

Thank you very much, Gilles.

I think it could be what I need, and by adding a good obfuscation one could even hide the
data. I will test it and give you feedback if I have any problems.

> It would be interesting to be able to use encrypted XML configuration files, the configuration
loader should be able to decrypt that file before deserializing.
> Some of the benefits would be:
>    - avoid that someone not informed plays with your mapping, putting your application
in jeopardy; of course, a malfunction would appear, but nobody would admit that has done something
(a common enterprise scenario...unfortunately)
>    - avoid exposing your persistence logic to others (as iBatis could be used by some
not open-source software)
> Is there any workaround that could be used (an embeded resource instead of a file on
file-system, ecc)? I've seen in the sdk help a function called "public static XmlDocument
GetEmbeddedResourceAsXmlDocument(string resource);", but with no further explaination.
