Explan how to encrypt a folder in Alfresco software


To encrypt data in alfresco software you need to install IdealX plug-in.

This would be downloaded as zip file, extract it.

Encryption in alfresco requires changing of the code:

Open file: '/sources/src/com/idx/edoc/plugins/decipher/DecipherDialog.java'

Add up these lines in the code:

/** node service object*/
Protected NodeService nodeService;

In-between the following two lines:

Protected ContentService contentService;

/** The namespace property */

In the plug-in folder > Go to “sources” directory > type command on terminal > ant package-extension

A zip file is generated and saved in “sources” directory

Make another change in extension/encipher.jsp:

Change acceptCharset > acceptcharset

Copy the contents “samples/pkcs5-mimetype-map-extension.xml.sample” to 'tomcat/webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/classes/alfresco/mimetype/mimetype-map.xml'

Now, extract the zip file contents > 'tomcat/webapps/alfresco' folder

Restart alfresco and “encrypt content” will appear in drop-down list in alfresco software.
