Subject [jira] [Commented] (QPID-3763) AMQConnectionDelegate_0_10 incorrectly prints password to log file
Date Mon, 23 Jan 2012 16:58:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/QPID-3763?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13191251#comment-13191251

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

Hi Weston,

IMHO, with current implementation seeing  6 '*' characters for a password when Kerberos (or
any other non-password) authentication is used could be a bit misleading.

I would say that it could be more clear to either  
 mask each password characters with "*" char and display the exact number of "*" characters
as the number of characters in password
or stop printing password and any password mask characters.

What do you think about it?

> The AMQConnectionDelegate_0_10 prints password information to the log file. This should
be replaced with the standard '******' pattern. Also, I think we should go through the JMS
client and determine if this is being done anywhere else.
