Subject [jira] [Closed] (AMQ-1164) ManagementContext opens insecure server
Date Fri, 17 Feb 2012 20:42:57 GMT


Timothy Bish closed AMQ-1164.

    Resolution: Not A Problem

See the ActiveMQ docs for information on securing the JMXConnector:
> ManagementContext opens insecure server

>                 Key: AMQ-1164
>                 URL:
>             Project: ActiveMQ
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: JMX
>    Affects Versions: 4.1.0
>            Reporter: Christopher G. Stach II
>             Fix For: NEEDS_REVIEWED
> The use case is setting up an RMI server on a fixed port (using <amq:managementContext
rmiServerPort="xxx">) in order to pass through a firewall.  This RMI server doesn't honor
the com.sun.mangement.password.file et al environment variables.  Simply guessing the hostname
and port (and the default port being a well known port, meaning "no guesswork at all") is
enough to take full control of AMQ.
> Further, but somewhat unrelated, if one sets up a password protected Tiger JMX MBean
server, AMQ can't configure it, giving a read only error message.
