Problem Description

This issue is identical to TheHive-Project/TheHive#1177

At startup, the Docker entrypoint prints the value of play.http.secret.key to stdout, which is commonly logged. This allows anyone with access to the logs to see the key. To practise proper secrets management, this value should not be logged.

Complementary information

By default the secret should not be logged but in case of the secret is randomly generated, it could be interested to get that secret (for debugging purpose). I've added a parameter --show-secret for that.
