> The bootstrap process {{RunNiFi.java}} is currently responsible for reading 
> the key from {{bootstrap.conf}} and sending it to the running NiFi process 
> {{NiFi.java}} to be used for sensitive property decryption. This exposes the 
> key in two places:
> * Plaintext in {{bootstrap.conf}}
> * In the process invocation
> Running the following command ({{ps -aef | grep -i nifi}}) will result in the 
> following output:

> To allow for a more secure invocation, the NiFi process could pause and 
> prompt for the password/key entry in a secure console if it is not provided 
> in the invocation arguments from bootstrap (or if a special flag is 
> provided). While this would require manual intervention to start the process, 
> it would not be default behavior.
