Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-2109) System privileges
Date Wed, 22 Nov 2006 17:30:02 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-2109?page=all ]

Rick Hillegas updated DERBY-2109:
---------------------------------

    Description: 
Add mechanisms for controlling system-level privileges in Derby. See the related email discussion
at http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.apache.db.derby.devel/33151.

The 10.2 GRANT/REVOKE work was a big step forward in making Derby more  secure in a client/server
configuration. I'd like to plug more client/server security holes in 10.3. In particular,
I'd like to focus on  authorization issues which the ANSI spec doesn't address.

Here are the important issues which came out of the email discussion.

Missing privileges that are above the level of a single database:

- Create Database
- Boot all databases
- Shutdown all databases
- Shutdown System

Missing privileges specific to a particular database:

- Shutdown that Database
- Encrypt that database
- Create (in that Database) Java Plugins (currently  Functions/Procedures, but someday Aggregates
and VTIs)

Note that 10.2 gave us GRANT/REVOKE control over the following  database-specific issues,
via granting execute privilege to system  procedures:

Jar Handling
Backup Routines
Admin Routines
Import/Export
Property Handling
Check Table

In addition, since 10.0, the privilege of connecting to a database has been controlled by
two properties (derby.database.fullAccessUsers and derby.database.defaultConnectionMode) as
described in the security section of the Developer's Guide (see http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.2/devguide/cdevcsecure865818.html).

Added "Boot all database" as a system privilege based on Dag's feedback on the email thread.
"Encrypt database" is already included in the list, based on feedback from Francois.
