Class ConfidentialStore

Direct Known Subclasses:

public abstract class ConfidentialStore extends Object
The actual storage for the data held by ConfidentialKeys, and the holder of the master secret.

This class is only relevant for the implementers of ConfidentialKeys. Most plugin code should interact with ConfidentialKeys.

OEM distributions of Jenkins can provide a custom ConfidentialStore implementation by writing a subclass, mark it with MetaInfServices annotation, package it as a Jenkins module, and bundling it with the war file. This doesn't use Extension because some plugins have been found to use Secret before we get to InitMilestone.PLUGINS_PREPARED, and therefore Extensions aren't loaded yet. (Similarly, it's conceivable that some future core code might need this early on during the boot sequence.)
