In Jboss at present we are keeping the Database username and pwd in db2-ds.xml file in plain text.
Since our database has some importatnt data, from security point we don't want keep the username and pwd in plain text.

Is there any way we can encrypt the same and have Jboss to decrypt and read it?

Thanks in advance.

Not sure about the username, but you can encrypt the password as mentioned at EncryptingDataSourcePasswords

Is it possible for you to restrict access to that file to:
- read-only for the OS user that runs JBoss,
- read-write for the system administrator
- no access for the rest of the world?

Yes, but it has a couple of steps. You cannot put the encrypted text into the datasource, so you need to put it somewhere else.

So here are the steps.
