I hope this is the right section where I'm asking this question, but :
We've got a lot of Java Web Applications. Now for security purposes, we've removed all the properties files from the Applications (Because there are passwords in the files that changes depending on where the applications get deployed to) and put then into a directory elsewhere on the Server. Now we have to protect the directory or do something so that no one can open the files and look for the passwords.
But how ? Or is there something else that I could rather do ?
Hope this makes sense.
