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=13770392#comment-13770392

Josh Elser commented on ACCUMULO-1720:
--------------------------------------

I had thought that the point of the instance.secret was to be used to mitigate some of this
concern. Was the instance.secret set in the case you noticed?

Regardless, we could probably do something better.

> 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?
