Configuring the Encrypted content store

Use this information to configure the Encrypted content store.

The Encrypted content store is configured using the properties in the alfresco-global.properties file and can also be administered using JMX.

Set up encryption properties using alfresco-global.properties file

To configure the Encrypted content store, set the configuration properties in the alfresco-global.properties file. For example, here is a set of properties which configure the default Java JCE provider implementation with two master keys (override the cryptodoc.jce.providerName property to configure a specific provider).
filecontentstore.subsystem.name=encryptedContentStore
cryptodoc.jce.keystore.path=<path_to_the_keystore>
cryptodoc.jce.keystore.password=<master_password_for_the_keystore>
cryptodoc.jce.key.aliases=<alias_for_the_key>
cryptodoc.jce.key.passwords=<password_for_the_key_itself>
cryptodoc.jce.keygen.defaultSymmetricKeySize=128
For detailed information on these properties, see Encrypted content store properties.
Note: On Enterprise, properties edited using JMX are persisted and will override any settings in the alfresco-global.properties file. Use the JMX client to change the configuration properties on Enterprise.

Set up encryption properties using JMX client

You can configure the Encrypted content store using the JMX client, such as JConsole on the JMX MBeans > Alfresco > Configuration > ContentStore > managed > encrypted > Attributes tab.
