Subject [jira] Updated: (AMQ-3154) unable to implement custom broker-to-broker authorization
Date Thu, 17 Feb 2011 20:30:24 GMT


Arthur Naseef updated AMQ-3154:

    Attachment: trunk2011-02-17_result.txt

Full output running against 5.5 trunk snapshot checked out today, 17 Feb 2011; rev: 1071750.

Something is notably different.  The test is getting 4 persistence adapters configured, according
to the log output, and one is a KahaDB even though both brokers have been set to be non-persistent.

> Ran into the following issues preventing a custom Broker-To-Broker authentication implementation:
>   - BrokerFilter's addBroker() can not be used to secure a connection:
>       - for duplex connections, it is never called on the initial conneciton
>       - even if addBroker() throws an exception, it does not deny access (it does not
close the connection nor prevent other functioning)
>       - addBroker() does not have direct access to the ConnectionContext, nor any other
means for the BrokerFilter to access SSL certificates on the SSL transport
>   - BrokerFilter's addConnection() can not be used to secure a connection:
>        - there is no way to distinguish broker connections from clients
> Other approaches were considered, but lead to dead-ends.
> It seems the optimal solution would use the existing addBroker() method.
> A patch will be provided that adds a new method specifically for securing Broker-To-Broker
