Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-2109) System privileges
Date Tue, 15 Jan 2008 22:43:36 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-2109?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

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

    Attachment: SystemPrivilegesBehaviour.html

Attached is an upated version of the SystemPrivilegesBehaviour.html extending the description
of the user-visible changes and the backward compatibility issues, which was incomplete.

By the functional spec and the implementation, this JIRA addresses two issues, which could
have been separated:
a) authentication: extend NetworkServerControl to support user credentials
b) authorization: introduce checks for EngineShutdown/CreateDatabase System Privileges

The reason it came about is because b) requires a) (but not vice versa).

The backward compatibility issues with a) and b) are separate as now highlighted in the SystemPrivilegesBehaviour
document.
(Also, see the "Compatibility issue for 10.4" discussion on derby-dev.)

> 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).
