Hi Guys forgive me if this has been flagged already. So ive set up jitsi-meet and its all up and running. I have set up authentication on it, so users logging in will need a username and password which is great.
My question is, ive noticed that the usernames and passwords are contained here: /var/lib/prosody/whatevernameyouused/accounts/username.dat
These files are non encrypted currently. Im aware that for now they can only really be read by the root user as ACL’s are locked down to that user, but is there anyway to further encrypt these .dat files so that if someone did hack the server that there is another level of resistance?
i tried using gnupg (ive installed on an ubuntu server) however, when launching the internal nginx page jitsi is unable to read said configured file.
Once again im new to this and only just set up a server so apologies if im asking something stupid or redundant.
Boris you beautiful man. So this is the first time setting everything up and so i used a tutorial that someone else posted about setting it up. Seems like in the prosody he just threw in internal_plain. I followed blindly (shame on me) and didnt click on till your message right now.
much appreciated sir. Many thanks for the help. This is exactly what i was looking for and appreciate the point in the right direction
