Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-2356) Make SSL server authentication optional
Date Thu, 22 Feb 2007 20:57:05 GMT

Bernt M. Johnsen commented on DERBY-2356:

Thanks John!
1) You need -ssl basic on these too, since they are clients. My mistake, it's not mentioned
in the func spec, but it is implemented. This is also another argument for DERBY-2362.

3) This is in line with the other options, e.g.

java -jar derbyrun.jar server start p=1234
Invalid number of arguments for command start.


java -jar derbyrun.jar server start -p=1234
Argument -p=1234 is unknown.

4) I will clarify this

5) Typo. I will fix them (some are already fixed in my sandbox)

>             Fix For:
>         Attachments: derby-2356-v1.diff, derby-2356-v1.stat, SSLFuncSpect.txt
> Default SSL behaviour is to require serer authentication. For a database application
this is not as important as it is for web browsers and also creates som extra hassle for the
user/application programmer. Since the main objective for SSL in Derby is encryption on the
wire, server authentication should be optional (the same way client authentication is).
> This also creates some symmetry which can be exploited to simplify the user interfce
somewhat. This improvement to DERBY-2108 is described in the attached functional specification.
See the attachment for details.
