Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-2938) Investigate logging on KeyExtent to ensure no data leakage

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-2938?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14041357#comment-14041357

Christopher Tubbs commented on ACCUMULO-2938:
---------------------------------------------

Despite this issue being labeled critical, I don't see any version information here, as to
which versions are affected, or which ones are targeted for fixing.

As for whether or not it should be considered critical, I just want to point out that logs
should always be assumed to contain sensitive data, and be protected accordingly. So, I'm
not sure this warrants being critical, but certainly it's a good idea.

> The KeyExtent class identifies a Tablet in Accumulo. Of interest to this issue, KeyExtent
may contain the endRow of the Tablet and/or the endRow of the previous Tablet (or neither).
> If we log the extent, we have the potential to be leaking some data that might need to
be protected (visibilities, encryption) to a medium only protected by filesystem restrictions.
> This may be difficult since the extent is included in things like MinC and MajC log messages
and can be helpful when diagnosing problems on the system. Can we abstract away what might
be potentially sensitive data in some way that we still provide useful data for debugging
purposes?
