Proxy Settings password encryption


#1

Hello Everyone,

I am using Atom behind a Company proxy (and also firewall) and I need to set the proxy in order to download packages and so on.

I could do this, by adding the proxy in C:\Users\<my_user>\.atom.apmrc:
proxy=http://domain\user:pass@XX.XX.XX.XX:9090/
strict-ssl=false

Despite that this is working, is there any way to encrypt at least the password?
I don’t want to leave clear text password in this file.

Thanks in advance

Hi,

I have found a workaround.
There is a tool called Burp Suite that can be used as proxy.
You can point Atom to use Burp as a proxy and you can configure Burp to forward all requests to the corporate proxy, where you can specify NTLM credentials to go out.

Hope it helps.
