Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-2361) Documentation should give examples for using the different security mechanisms
Date Tue, 20 Feb 2007 22:27:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-2361?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12474584
] 

Andrew McIntyre commented on DERBY-2361:
----------------------------------------

The Strong Substitute Password is securityMechanism number 8, so:

jdbc:derby://localhost/mydb;user=myuser;password=mypassword;securityMechanism=8

for the encrypted username and password, the number is 9, so:

jdbc:derby://localhost/mydb;user=myuser;password=mypassword;securityMechanism=9

I believe that you can also set a default security mechanism for a server by setting the property
derby.drda.securityMechanism to one of those values to ensure that clients can only connect
if they are using a specific security mechanism, and that also needs documentation, see DERBY-928.
That could be separated out to a separate issue if desired, though.

> The Derby Server and Administration guide talks about the different security mechanisms,
but does not give examples of how these can be used via connection URLs, it only mentions
the client DataSource field names. 
> http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/10.2/adminguide/cadminapps49914.html
> The documentation should give examples of how to use the different security mechanisms
via connection URLs, and perhaps an example of how the client field names would be used programmatically.
