You should obfuscate the SSL connector keystore password for greater security.
When adding the SslSelectChannelConnector, you must specify the keystore passwords in the configuration. Specifying the passwords as clear text is not recommended because they are not secure. Instead, you should obfuscate the passwords so that they are not easily read.
Note that the version number (8.0.1.v20110908) will change if the Jetty package is upgraded to a later revision.
To produce an obfuscated password:
java -cp jetty-http-8.0.1.v20110908.jar;jetty-util-8.0.1.v20110908.jar org.eclipse.jetty.http.security.Password endeca
endeca OBF:1sar1uh61svy1sw01ugk1saj MD5:2a1ec2aefbd80e6043b394cb2314e9c6
The OBF output is the obfuscated version of the password, while the MD5 output is the checksummed version. You will be using the OBF version in the Jetty configuration file.
