This post is the continuation of the previous one where I explained how to read the User ID, Password, etc.. from a file in the Groovy Program. So the file containing the User ID, Password, etc.. is a central repository where you need to change it only once.
In this post, I will extend that feature by using the encoding/decoding methods to encode the password and decode it wherever needed. So the password Is not exposed anywhere and no security breach of storing the password in a file or a program.
Let me divide this post into two parts
- Encode the Oracle EPM authenticating Password using a Secret Key.
Kindly note I have used the AES encryption algorithm to encrypt the password.
