Subject [jira] [Updated] (ACCUMULO-891) Authorizations not actually immutable
Date Mon, 10 Jun 2013 16:37:19 GMT


Christopher Tubbs updated ACCUMULO-891:

    Attachment: ACCUMULO-891.v2.patch

Add [^ACCUMULO-891.v2.patch] as a compromise to get the desired behavior in the Authorization
API, but without breaking thrift constraints. (This makes a copy of the Authorizations when
serializing to thrift, but I don't believe this will have a significant performance impact.)

> Instances of {{Authorizations}} are not actually immutable, despite the API making it
seem like they are. A user can make changes that will write-through to the backing data by
using the ByteBuffer getter.
> This is a potential issue if a trusted application acts as a connection broker between
accumulo and untrusted clients.
