Is the username and password sent in plain text to Jira?

If Atlassian is not using SSL, how does it secure the username, password, and data over a network? How does it protect from sniffing on a network?

 

Thanks,

Rick

Which Atlassian product are you referring to? The Cloud hosting? Bitbucket?

Securing traffic is SSL's job.  Anything the individual products do other than accept the password in plaintext would be security through obscurity and pointless.

If you are concerned about traffic sniffing, then configure SSL.
