To add extra security to your Bamboo instance, you can encrypt the database password that is stored in the configuration file used by Bamboo to access your database. We’ve prepared different encryption methods for basic and advanced users. Additionally, you can create your own encryption based on our Cipher interface.
This solution is an obfuscation, which doesn’t assure full security. Bamboo still needs to use the plain text password to connect to your database, so the configuration will contain all the information needed to decrypt the password. An attacker could act like Bamboo to obtain the password. We recommend that you secure the server where Bamboo and the database reside.
This method uses a Base64 cipher, which is a simple obfuscation. It’s recommended for users who don’t want to store passwords in plain text, or have to meet specific requirements to encode them. See Basic database password encryption.
This method allows you to choose an algorithm to encrypt a database password. It provides more security as you don't have to store the encrypted password anywhere in the configuration file, which makes it difficult to find and decrypt. See Advanced database password encryption.
Encryption with custom Cipher
パスワードの保存に追加の要件がある場合、アトラシアンの実装や例に基づいて独自の Cipher を作成できます。これを実施するには、Java の知識と Maven の基本的な知識が必要です。
