SonarQube 8 Encryption Key Size

Hello I’m using SonarQube version 8, and i found out that the Encryption key size is limited to 128 and it’s hard coded in a AesCipher class. Is it ok to modify it to 256?


Hi @ryder_chase,

AES 256 encryption is not yet supported. This limitation is coming from Java 8 which was not supporting by default 256 bits cypher…
Now that SonarQube 8.x requires Java 11 which supports by default all cyphers, it makes sense to support AES 256. We’ve added it to the backlog (SONAR-12841).


Thanks a lot Christophe.



I’m using v8 as well. Any idea when would this feature be implemented?
