Carsten Ziegeler commented on FELIX-4599:

[~brandan.jeter] No, the default PM will not encrypt configurations and I think 
we will not provide such an implementation out of the box as there are a 
variety of solutions for encryption and key management. The important part is 
that with the R7 implementation you can provide a PM that encrypts and use a 
ConfigurationPlugin to decrypt on the fly. This ensures that all tools will 
still see the encrypted value but the components using the configuration will 
get the decrypted value and don't have to decrypt themselves.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-4599
>             Project: Felix
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: Configuration Admin
>            Reporter: Dominique Jäggi
> Currently it is not possible to define configuration properties, the contents 
> of which should be automatically encrypted upon save by the configuration 
> admin.
> An example would be a mail server configuration, where SMTP credentials must 
> specified and the password should be encrypted upon saving the configuration. 
> The encrypted password should then be accessible and decryptable in the 
> component to which the configuration is bound.
