Clear text passwords stored in cwd_directory_attribute - embedded Crowd and Standalone

Hi all

I just notiecd that Crowd (embedded version as well as standalone) stores passwords for directories and applications in clear text (table cwd_directory_attribute / ldap.password & application.password). I believe that is a big security issue so I wonder if there is a workaround available or if this is just a matter of configuration?

Thanks

Peter

There is an open Crowd issue for this - CWD-1876. However, if the password in the database is encrypted, this still leaves the problem of how to store the master key securely.
