[ecf-dev] FYI: secure storage of namespaces and IDs

Hi Folks,

I've started work on an API to store and retrieve ECF Namespaces/IDs via the new Equinox secure storage facility. What this makes possible is the secure storage of ECF ID instances, and their subsequent use as keys in a simple database for holding associated information (e.g. passwords, other user account credentials, user data, etc). It's just getting started, and should be considered in incubation (it won't be going out until at least ECF 2.1.0).

Among other things, this should be useful for a) single sign-on; b) automatic connections to remote accounts upon startup. Are others interested in working together on this?


There is an initial cut at an IIDStore interface in new plugin:, and some initial test code in See project set file below for access to the code.
