SensitiveDataCodec

public class SensitiveDataCodec extends Object

Helper object used to encode and decode sensitive data.

There are three levels of SensitiveDataCodec.SecurityLevel, PLAIN_TEXT, OBFUSCATED and ENCRYPTED. To facilitate decoding a message, first use getSecurityLevel(String encrypted_message) to get the securityLevel. If the prefix of the encrypted_message doesn't match a valid security level, the decoder uses PLAIN_TEXT by default.

To decrypt the message, use decodeData(String encrypted).

Nested Class Summary

enum SensitiveDataCodec.SecurityLevel Values that specify the security level, used typically for a user parameter.

Public Methods

public String decodeData (String encrypted)

Decrypts the encoded text.

Parameters
encrypted the encrypted string
Returns
  • the decrypted string
Throws
InvalidConfigurationException
IOException

public String encodeData (String readable, SensitiveDataCodec.SecurityLevel securityLevel)

Encodes the text based on securityLevel.

Parameters
readable original text
securityLevel one of three different security levels: PLAIN_TEXT, OBFUSCATED and ENCRYPTED using public/private key pair
Returns
  • encrypted text
Throws
IOException

public static void main (String[] args)

Encodes and decodes sensitive data.

Example usage to get encoded sensitive data value from the command line:

 java -DsecurityLevel=ENCRYPTED \
 -Djavax.net.ssl.keyStore=encryptKeyStore.jks \
 -Djavax.net.ssl.keyStorePassword=testtest \
 -Djavax.net.ssl.keyStoreType=JKS \
 -Dalias=testkeypair \
 -classpath 'cloudsearch-connector-sdk-{version}-SNAPSHOT-withlib.jar' \
 com.google.enterprise.cloudsearch.sdk.config.SensitiveDataCodec
 

To enable reading the sensitive value from standard input, add a quiet parameter ("--quiet"). If the quiet parameter is present, the program outputs the encoded sensitive value without any additional text.

Parameters
args
Throws
IOException
