Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-4019) thrift proxy no longer listening on all interfaces
Date Mon, 05 Oct 2015 23:37:26 GMT


Dave Marion commented on ACCUMULO-4019:

I think binding to all interfaces could be a security issue in some organizations. Can we
make it configurable? Maybe default to all interfaces to fix the backwards compatibility issue?
Then, file a ticket for a future release to change the default to localhost (forcing the user
to change it)?

>             Project: Accumulo

>    Affects Versions: 1.7.0
>            Reporter: Adam Fuchs
> In updating the thrift proxy to use HostAndPort-style configuration, we changed the behavior
from listening on all interfaces to only listening on the canonical host name interface. This
broke the proxy for some users:
> {code}
> -    TServer server = createProxyServer(AccumuloProxy.class, ProxyServer.class, port,
protoFactoryClass, opts.prop);
> -    server.serve();
> +    HostAndPort address = HostAndPort.fromParts(InetAddress.getLocalHost().getCanonicalHostName(),
> +    ServerAddress server = createProxyServer(address, protoFactory, opts.prop);
> {code}
> Does anybody know what prompted this change? To fix this, I think we should hardcode
it to listen to all interfaces. Would the correct way of doing that be to use the following
> {code}
> HostAndPort address = HostAndPort.fromParts("::", port);
> {code}
