Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1009) Support encryption over the wire
Date Fri, 13 Sep 2013 15:17:52 GMT


Michael Berman commented on ACCUMULO-1009:

Re: bouncycastle...

It's true that it's not at all necessary for the mainline, running accumulo with SSL connections
scenario.  It is necessary for provisioning certs (Sun's default JSSE provider does not provide
any way to sign certs).  So, if someone is willing to bring their own certs for each node,
you can get everything up and running without it.  But, the tool to help sign and distribute
certs for each node will have a real code dependency on BC (not just as a JSSE provider that
can be conditionally loaded).  We could probably get away with not distributing it anyway,
but you'll get ClassNotFound exceptions if you run the cert provisioning code, run a MAC with
SSL enabled, or run integration tests.  If it's possible to satisfy the export control requirements
(per Vines's links above), it sounds like that's a better plan.
