Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-1720) Accumulo saves the root user's password in the clear in Zookeeper
Date Wed, 18 Sep 2013 03:53:52 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-1720?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13770391#comment-13770391

Michael Allen commented on ACCUMULO-1720:
-----------------------------------------

I updated this title and summary shortly after filing when I further inspected the code to
see that normal user passwords are salted and hashed but for some reason the root user's isn't.

> In reviewing some of the security around users, it came to my attention that Accumulo
stores the root user's password within Zookeeper in the clear.  Grepping through Zookeeper's
data files proves this out (as does inspecting the code).
> This passwords should be stored heavily salted and hashed, as the other user passwords
are.  Is there any reason why it isn't?
