Subject [jira] Created: (DERBY-560) Provide finer grained security for connection attributes in Derby
Date Fri, 09 Sep 2005 16:53:43 GMT
Provide finer grained security for connection attributes in Derby

         Key: DERBY-560
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-560
     Project: Derby
        Type: Improvement
  Components: JDBC  
    Reporter: Kathey Marsden

Currently if authentication is enabled in Derby,  anyone who has access to a database can
connect with any attributes.  This makes sense as that is currently the only barrier to access
to  a Derby database.

With talk of adding GRANT/REVOKE to provide finer grained access, consideration should be
given to also providing finer grained access to connection attributes, especially for Network
Server.  Giving any user that can access the system permission to shutdown and create databases
at will could be an issue.
