      Description

      There is an unexpected and insecure default setting for the encryption provider.

      When CryptoMapper is enabled using

      setRootRequestMapper(new CryptoMapper(getRootRequestMapper(), this));

      or

      CompoundRequestMapper root = new CompoundRequestMapper();
      root.add(new CryptoMapper(getRootRequestMapper(), this));
      setRootRequestMapper(root);

      Wicket uses "new CachingSunJceCryptFactory(ISecuritySettings.DEFAULT_ENCRYPTION_KEY)" as the CryptFactory, with ISecuritySettings.DEFAULT_ENCRYPTION_KEY being "WiCkEt-FRAMEwork". This generates always the same encrypted strings for each of the URLs and is possibly not a secure way to encrypt URLs even if the encryption key is unknown.
