Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-3585) Document user authentication support for network server shutdown
Date Tue, 01 Apr 2008 23:21:24 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3585?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12584354#action_12584354

Kathey Marsden commented on DERBY-3585:
---------------------------------------

Thanks Martin for the release note.  I have  a question on the edge case:
Note that there is an edge case

    NetworkServerControl nsc = new NetworkServerControl();
    nsc.start(console);
    ...
    nsc.shutdown();

which currently fails with above's SQLException.

An quick workaround, however, is to create another NetworkServerControl instance with user
credential arguments:

    NetworkServerControl nsc = new NetworkServerControl();
    nsc.start(console);
    ...
    NetworkServerControl nscauth = new NetworkServerControl(user, password);
    nscauth.shutdown();


I found with some experimenting that it also worked to use the user/password constructor for
start. e.g.

    NetworkServerControl nscauth = new NetworkServerControl(user, password);
    nscauth.start();
    ...
    nscauth.shutdown();

Is that an acceptable workaround? Are there plans for the future to add authentication checks
to start?

> As part of the System Privileges work in DERBY-2109, the support of user authentication
for network server shutdown was discussed, implemented, and committed (revision 632502).
> In order to address a security issue (missing user authentication for shutdown), this
feature introduces a few incompatibilities with the usage of NetworkServerControl, which need
to be documented.
> This JIRA is to provide for the user documentation and the release notes describing the
usage changes and incompatibilities.
