Subject [jira] Created: (DERBY-2356) Make SSL server authentication optional
Date Mon, 19 Feb 2007 14:23:05 GMT
Make SSL server authentication optional
---------------------------------------

                 Key: DERBY-2356
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-2356
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Network Server
    Affects Versions: 10.3.0.0
            Reporter: Bernt M. Johnsen
         Assigned To: Bernt M. Johnsen
             Fix For: 10.3.0.0
         Attachments: 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.
