Subject [jira] [Created] (ACCUMULO-3224) Shell should use nanos for auth timeout
Date Fri, 10 Oct 2014 20:31:34 GMT

-------------------------------------------

             Summary: Shell should use nanos for auth timeout
                 Key: ACCUMULO-3224
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-3224
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: shell
            Reporter: Christopher Tubbs
            Assignee: Christopher Tubbs
             Fix For: 1.5.3, 1.6.2, 1.7.0


I was looking at the code done for ACCUMULO-3221 and noticed that we're using the system clock
instead of the JDK's internal relative time, System.nanoTime(). This is a problem, because
any auth timeout that depends on the system clock can be easily bypassed by changing the system
time.

We can also do the time conversion more reliably with {{TimeUnit}} to avoid the potential
arithmetic bug identified in ACCUMULO-3221.
