Hide Passwords with Password Aliases in Payara Server

Introduction

When performing the configuration of the Payara Server for your application, you often need to supply a password. The password to connect to the database is a classic example, but there are many situations where you need to enter this kind of sensitive data.

With Payara Server, you have the option to hide this kind of sensitive data from the user, so that this information is much better secured.

Payara Platform Supports TLS 1.3 on JDK 8

Transport Layer Security (TLS) was introduced as a replacement for Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). TLS is a cryptographic protocol which provides secure communication between a client and a server. It also provides a mechanism by which information is not tampered with, falsified or read by anyone other than the intended receiver. TLS 1.3 was released in August 2018 to replace the widely used TLS 1.2. TLS 1.3 comes with stronger cryptographic algorithms and brings in major improvements in performance, security and privacy, which will be discussed in this blog.
