Overview

A file that contains the master password used to encrypt remote repository credentials. The master password must be encrypted with:

mvn --encrypt-master-password 

and the encrypted representation must be stored in ~<user>/.m2/settings-security.xml as follows:

<settingsSecurity>
  <master>{tiJTx7Yed80HP6UZZShSFgNMhqfl3Xcaz5S8ewCRbiI=}</master>
</settingsSecurity>

If this file does not exist, or if it does not contain valid content, mvn --encrypt-password will fail.
