Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-4483) Provide a way to change the hash algorithm used by BUILTIN authentication
Date Wed, 03 Mar 2010 14:20:27 GMT

Knut Anders Hatlen updated DERBY-4483:
--------------------------------------

    Attachment: upgrade-test.diff

Attaching an upgrade test that verifies that the new algorithm is only used in hard-upgraded
databases. The upgrade test framework does not support tests that use authentication, but
I found that the roles tests worked around this by creating a separate database and manually
enabling authentication on it, so I followed that pattern.

> The BUILTIN authentication scheme protects the passwords by hashing them with the SHA-1
algorithm. It would be nice to have way to specify a different algorithm so that users can
take advantage of new, stronger algorithms provided by their JCE provider if so desired.
