Plugin for storing user passwords as hash

Hello fellow activiti developers!

I'm developing an application in which activiti plays a crucial part (it is like activiti-explorer with customizations). Obviously I wanted to delegate as much as I could to activiti, but the identity service was a no-go because it saves passwords of users as plain text. I decided to make a small addition to activiti and figured that other developers maybe had the same problems, so I made it publicly available on GitHub. The plugin saves passwords as a hash with salt and doesn't require any other changes in the application. Logging in and changing passwords work.

So my humble plugin is located here: https://github.com/lovromazgon/activiti-hashed-passwords

All instalation details are described on GitHub. One thing that I should say is, that the code is written in Java 8 (using streams), but if someone has the need I could modify it to Java 7 as well.

Have a nice day,
Lovro
