Subject [jira] [Commented] (CAMEL-8606) Attack Vector: java.util.Random.nextInt
Date Thu, 09 Apr 2015 09:15:12 GMT


Willem Jiang commented on CAMEL-8606:

Hi Kishore,

The classes which you showed  do not use the Random.nextInt is not used to generate the random
number for the session key or session identifier. I don't think we need to switch it to  use
the SecureRandom.

> Standard random number generators do not provide a sufficient amount of entropy when
used for security purposes. Attackers can brute force the output of pseudorandom number generators
such as rand().
> Remediation: If this random number is used where security is a concern, such as generating
a session key or session identifier, use a trusted cryptographic random number generator instead.
These can be found on the Windows platform in the CryptoAPI or in an open source library such
as OpenSSL. In Java, use the SecureRandom object to ensure sufficient entropy.
