Re: [equinox-dev] JAAS integration (security)


The DSDP Target Management Project is also interested in
picking up security enhancements from Equinox. I entered
for trackign this on our own behalf, could you please
keep us in the loop.

I edited the Requirements Wiki as follows:

* Support a password management (or perhaps service management)
  UI for storing passwords to CVS, etc.
** DSDP-TM Usecase: 196445 - should be a (potentially backward 
   compatible) replacement of the current Eclipse Keyring, but with
*** Better or pluggable encryption
*** UI for entering the master password instead of having it on 
    startup commandline
*** Access to the opened password database only for trusted modules
