Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-2066) Don't allow stupid storage of passwords
Date Sun, 16 Feb 2014 15:52:19 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-2066?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13902735#comment-13902735
] 

Robert Newson commented on COUCHDB-2066:
----------------------------------------

We can and should upgrade _user records on next authentication (when we have the password)
and not wait until the user changes their password. Upconverting from the old scheme to the
new one is a novel (and therefore almost certainly broken) security algorithm, very much -1
on that.

As a further enhancement, we could allow a server config setting that refuses users that only
have password_sha on disk, and force them to change their password.

> If a password_sha/salt combination is PUT into the _users db, wrap that up in PBKDF2.
