The Camel Component: Jasypt component provides a little command line tooling to encrypt or decrypt values.

The console output the syntax and which options it provides:

Apache Camel Jasypt takes the following options

  -h or -help = Displays the help screen
  -c or -command <command> = Command either encrypt or decrypt
  -p or -password <password> = Password to use
  -i or -input <input> = Text to encrypt or decrypt
  -a or -algorithm <algorithm> = Optional algorithm to use

For example to encrypt the value tiger you run with the following parameters. In the apache Camel kit, you cd into the lib folder and run the following java cmd, where <CAMEL_HOME> is where you have downloaded and extract the Camel distribution.

$ cd <CAMEL_HOME>/lib
$ java -jar camel-jasypt-2.5.0.jar -c encrypt -p secret -i tiger

Which outputs the following result

Encrypted text: qaEEacuW7BUti8LcMgyjKw==

This means the encrypted representation qaEEacuW7BUti8LcMgyjKw== can be decrypted back to tiger if you know the master password which was secret . If you run the tool again then the encrypted value will return a different result. But decrypting the value will always return the correct original value.

So you can test it by running the tooling using the following parameters:

$ cd <CAMEL_HOME>/lib
$ java -jar camel-jasypt-2.5.0.jar -c decrypt -p secret 
      -i qaEEacuW7BUti8LcMgyjKw==

Which outputs the following result:

Decrypted text: tiger

The idea is then to use those encrypted values in your Camel Component: Properties files. Notice how the password value is encrypted and the value has the tokens surrounding ENC(value here)

# refer to a mock endpoint name by that encrypted password

# here is a password which is encrypted
