encrypte password for connecting to repository

Eray ─░zgin (11611724) | asked Nov 21 '11, 7:55 a.m.
For some projects, we don't want to share password.
We want to login by the encrypted password . How can I hide/encrypte password in our applications? I use plain java snippet for connecting to a repository.

how strong does the encryption need to be? if light, you could mime64 encode it and use the encoded chars in the configuration.. easy to decode

if u need more, then you'll have to find one of the encryption methods that support round trip (encrypt and decrypt)...

this is Java after all so those services might be available..
