Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-3681) When authenticating a user at connect time, verify that the user provided is not also a defined role name.
Date Wed, 21 May 2008 21:39:55 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3681?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Dag H. Wanvik updated DERBY-3681:

    Attachment: derby-3681-1.stat

Uploading patch derby-3681-1 which implements the check. Running
regression tests now.

Patch details:

M      java/engine/org/apache/derby/impl/jdbc/EmbedConnection.java

An extra test is added to checkUserCredentials when applicable
(dictionary >= 10.4 and sqlAuthorization is in use). A user name which
equals a role name will lead to connection level exception state
NET_CONNECT_AUTH_FAILED, i.e. 08004 and the connect will fail. I chose
not to add a new error message here, in the spirit of not providing
too much information when authentication fails. Admittedly, this could
cause some user confusion ("this user is defined, why can't I
connect?"), so a more helpful message is arguably better.

M      java/testing/org/apache/derbyTesting/functionTests/tests/lang/RolesTest.java

Added a test case for the new check.

M      java/testing/org/apache/derbyTesting/junit/DriverManagerConnector.java

For the client, openConnection(String, String, String) can't reliably
determine if a 08004 means the database does not exist or if it is a
authentication problem, so before this fix, my new test failed because
the fallback here tried to create a new database in such cases. Thus
should also when using the provided user, but it did not, since the
fallback used a call to getConnectionByAttributes(url, "create",
"true"); which uses the default user, not the one provided, which I
want to fail. So i modified this code to try to create using the
provided user which seems more logical anyway..

M      java/testing/org/apache/derbyTesting/junit/CleanDatabaseTestSetup.java

Added code to remove any roles when cleaning a database. This was
necessary since the RolesTest left a role in the database called
"bar", which the subsequent SQLGrantREvokeDDLTest tried to use as a
user name. The new check introduced with this issue made that fail.

> Although we try to avoid creating role that are not also valid Derby users (see DERBY-3673),
we cannot
> in general know for sure that no such user exists; it could be added to derby.properties
> the role has been created, authentication could be LDAP or user-defined, in which cases
> the check at role creation time will not work. So, in order to avoid collisions between
user identifiers and role identifiers, we shoudl check at connect time that there is no role
by same name as the supplied user name.
