Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-2109) System privileges
Date Tue, 05 Jun 2007 18:01:27 GMT

Martin Zaun updated DERBY-2109:
-------------------------------

    Attachment: DERBY-2109-02.diff
                DERBY-2109-02.stat

I've been looking into the System Privileges for a while and would like to publish some base
classes required by this feature (my first derby patch) for review and discussion.

While DatabasePrincipal and SystemPermission were more or less straight forward, there are
a few finepoints with DatabasePermission (for instance, the use of canonicalized path names)
which I've tried to document by comments inline.

SystemPrivilegesPermissionTest is an extensive unit test class with positive and negative
tests cases on the features of the System- and DatabasePermission classes; this junit test
uses a local policy file.

This suggested patch just provides the base classes and does not yet include the integration
with the rest of derby.

> 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
> - Shutdown all databases
> - Shutdown System
> Missing privileges specific to a particular database:
> - Shutdown that Database
> - Encrypt that database
> - Upgrade 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).
