Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-528) Support for DRDA Strong User ID and Password Substitute Authentication (USRSSBPWD) scheme
Date Thu, 15 Sep 2005 18:44:54 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-528?page=comments#action_12329464 ] 

Daniel John Debrunner commented on DERBY-528:
---------------------------------------------

This is marked as fix in 10.1.2, but DERBY-528 is a new feature, thus is it suitable for the
10.1.2 release, or the 10.1 branch. Typically branches are restricted to bug fixes and minor
improvements.

> This JIRA will add support for (DRDA) Strong User ID and Password Substitute Authentication
(USRSSBPWD) scheme in the network client/server driver layers.
> Current Derby DRDA network client  driver supports encrypted userid/password (EUSRIDPWD)
via the use of DH key-agreement protocol - however current Open Group DRDA specifications
imposes small prime and base generator values (256 bits) that prevents other JCE's  to be
used as java cryptography providers - typical minimum security requirements is usually of
1024 bits (512-bit absolute minimum) when using DH key-agreement protocol to generate a session
key.
> Strong User ID and Password Substitute Authentication (USRSSBPWD) is part of DRDA specifications
as another alternative to provide ciphered passwords across the wire.
> Support of USRSSBPWD authentication scheme will enable additional JCE's to  be used when
encrypted passwords are required across the wire.
> USRSSBPWD authentication scheme will be specified by a Derby network client user via
the securityMechanism property on the connection UR - A new property value such as ENCRYPTED_PASSWORD_SECURITY
will be defined in order to support this new (DRDA) authentication scheme.
