Encryption data

Alpha License: AGPL-3 OCA/server-env Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runbot

This module allows to encrypt and decrypt data. This module is not usable by itself, it is a low level module which should work as a base for others. An example is the module server_environment_data_encryption

Important

This is an alpha version, the data model and design can change at any time without warning. Only for development or testing purpose, do not use in production. More details on development status

Configuration

To configure this module, you need to edit the main configuration file of your instance, and add a directive called running_env. Commonly used values are 'dev', 'test', 'production':

[options]
running_env=dev

You also need to set the encryption key(s). The main idea is to have different encryption keys for your different environment, to avoid the possibility to retrieve crucial information from the production environment in a developement environment, for instance. So, if your running environment is 'dev':

[options]
encryption_key_dev=fyeMIx9XVPBBky5XZeLDxVc9dFKy7Uzas3AoyMarHPA=

In the configuration file of your production environment, you may want to configure all your other environments encryption key. This way, from production you can encrypt and decrypt data for all environments.

You can generate keys with python -c 'from cryptography.fernet import Fernet; print Fernet.generate_key()'.

Known issues / Roadmap

For now the encryption is dependent on the environment. It has been designed to store the same kind of data with different values depending on the environement (dev, preprod, prod...). An improvement could be to split this in 2 modules. But the environment stuff is not a big constraint.
