Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-1330) Provide runtime privilege checking for grant/revoke functionality
Date Thu, 15 Jun 2006 04:50:31 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1330?page=all ]

Mamta A. Satoor updated DERBY-1330:
-----------------------------------

    Attachment: AuthorizationModelForDerbySQLStandardAuthorizationV2.html

I did a little research on Dan's suggestion about using existing system table SYS.SYSDEPENDS
rather than introducing a new system table to keep track of views'/triggers'/constraints'
dependencies on privileges. I think SYS.SYSDEPENDS should serve the purpose. Based on that,
I have updated the functional spec(1st 2 paragraphs under section "DDL support for views,
triggers and constraints")  and attached it as AuthorizationModelForDerbySQLStandardAuthorizationV2.html.
Any feedback will be appreciated.

> Additional work needs to be done for grant/revoke to make sure that only users with required
privileges can access various database objects. In order to do that, first we need to collect
the privilege requirements for various database objects and store them in SYS.SYSREQUIREDPERM.
Once we have this information then when a user tries to access an object, the required SYS.SYSREQUIREDPERM
privileges for the object will be checked against the user privileges in SYS.SYSTABLEPERMS,
SYS.SYSCOLPERMS and SYS.SYSROUTINEPERMS. The database object access will succeed only if the
user has the necessary privileges.
> SYS.SYSTABLEPERMS, SYS.SYSCOLPERMS and SYS.SYSROUTINEPERMS are already populated by Satheesh's
work on DERBY-464. But SYS.SYSREQUIREDPERM doesn't have any information in it at this point
and hence no runtime privilege checking is getting done at this point.
