Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-3939) Accumulo AuditedSecurityOperation is not initialized properly
Date Wed, 22 Jul 2015 22:32:05 GMT


James Mello commented on ACCUMULO-3939:

Unfortunately there isn't a workaround. The getInstance() class is always
called to get the SecurityOperations. Since it is always returning the
SecurityOpertations class and not the AuditedSecurityOperations there is
nothing that a logging config can do to change the behavior.

There are other things that still need to be audited that would probably be
good to do: Here is a matrix of items that I went through and found out.

In particular none of the MasterServer actions are audited, so things like
create table, offline table etc are never part of an audit log except on

>            Priority: Critical

> While reading the source I found out that the AuditedSecurityOperation is never initialized
> The AuditSecurityOperation does not contain a getInstance() static method. This in turn
just calls the SecurityOperation getInstance() method. Because this is called in a static
manner the getInstance(String instanceId, boolean initialize) is called against the SecurityOperation
class not the AuditedSecurityOperation class.
> This should just be a simple fix that adds the getInstance() method to the AuditedSecurityOperation
> This is critical as we are in need of this security auditing to meet Information Assurance
requirements for an upcoming major release of our software.
