Subject [jira] [Created] (ACCUMULO-2713) Instance secret written out with other configuration items to RFiles and WALogs when encryption is turned on
Date Tue, 22 Apr 2014 15:32:14 GMT
Michael Allen created ACCUMULO-2713:
---------------------------------------

             Summary: Instance secret written out with other configuration items to RFiles
and WALogs when encryption is turned on
                 Key: ACCUMULO-2713
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-2713
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.5.1
            Reporter: Michael Allen
            Priority: Critical
             Fix For: 1.6.0


The encryption at rest feature records configuration information in order to encrypted RFiles
and WALogs so that if the configuration changes, the files can be read back.  The code that
does this recording hovers up all the "instance.*" entries, and does not pick out the instance.secret
as a special one not to write.  Thus the instance secret goes into each file in the clear,
which is non-ideal to say the least.

Patch forthcoming.
