Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-2109) System privileges

Martin Zaun updated DERBY-2109:

    Attachment: DERBY-2109-05and06.diff

Hi Rick,
I could not reproduce that patch issues you reported: I checked out a clean trunk, downloaded
and applied patch 05 (patch -p0 < DERBY-2109-05.diff), then -06; no problems during patch
and build. These two patches should be independent from each other, and a quick look didn't
reveal any overlapping code to me.

However, as a cross-check, I've attached a combined patch DERBY-2109-05and06.diff (from the
freshly patched trunk) and hope this one works better.

About the patches' status, yes, I consider patch:
- DERBY-2109-05.diff, which contains the System Privileges enforcement code, ready for discussion
(expecting questions), and
- DERBY-2109-06.diff, which contains some System Privileges unit test fixes, ready for commital
(or discussion if there are any questions). The unit test (suite) runs fine in my freshly
patched and build trunk:
  java -cp "jars/sane/derbynet.jar;jars/sane/derby.jar;tools/java/junit.jar;jars/sane/derbyTesting.jar;"
junit.textui.TestRunner org.apache.derbyTesting.unitTests.junit._Suite

If you find the unit test's two println()s unecessary, please, feel free to remove them:
  testing System Privileges ...
  testing System Privileges: done.

About the SystemPrivilegesTestCases.html document, I'll break out the "invalid credentials"
case into two lines with a few updates (right after my return in a week).

Thanks for your comments so far, Martin

> 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).
