This scenario shows how to encrypt passwords using a user routine in Talend Studio as an additional security measure.

Whether for a company or for an individual, passwords are always critical assets that should not be shared. You may want to have a way to hide your passwords in Talend Studio so that the passwords are not exposed to others.

While it is possible to use any algorithm (SHA, DES, etc.), this scenario demonstrates how to use ROT13 to avoid exposing a password among other parameters for a MySQL database connection dynamically loaded from a plain text file.
