Subject [jira] Created: (DERBY-928) Add ability to network server to accept connections with a certain security mechanism.
Date Tue, 07 Feb 2006 00:42:57 GMT
Add ability to network server to accept connections with a certain security mechanism.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

         Key: DERBY-928
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-928
     Project: Derby
        Type: New Feature
  Components: Network Server  
    Reporter: Sunitha Kambhampati
     Fix For: 10.2.0.0


Currently the network server has support for the following security mechanisms
1) USRIDONL (userid only),
2) USRIDPWD (clear text userid and password),
3) EUSRIDPWD (encrypted userid and password).

Thus the #3 encrypted userid and password security mechanism is secure with respect to the
userid/password sent across the wire.  Currently there is no way to setup the network server
to ensure that it accepts connections coming in at a certain security mechanism.   It seems
reasonable & useful to have a server want to accept connections from clients with a particular
security mechanism (e.g  lets say encrypted userid/password and reject usridpwd ie clear text
userid and password)

This jira will add support for this by adding a property to enable the server to be able to
accept connections from clients with a certain security mechanism.
--------------------
I actually couldnt find if a rank was given to the security mechanisms in the drda spec. 
If it were so, then maybe a property for setting the minimum security mechanism accepted by
the server would be appropriate.
