Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5928) Add more task focus to Derby security documentation
Date Thu, 13 Sep 2012 15:09:08 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5928?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13454938#comment-13454938

Kim Haase commented on DERBY-5928:

The section "Configuring security for your environment" has lists of tasks that are somewhat
different depending whether you are in embedded or client-server mode. I assume these differences
are current and valid and that the list of tasks should be different for the two modes. Please
let me know if any changes are needed here.

The major work involved in this documentation, I believe, is to flip the contents of the "Derby
and security" and "Configuring security for your environment" sections of http://db.apache.org/derby/docs/dev/devguide/,
rework them slightly, and add links to further information to the "Configuring security for
your environment" sections. The remaining sections can probably remain as is.

Further information is to be found in both the Reference Manual and the Admin Guide.

The first topic, "Derby and security", should be titled "Configuring security for Derby" and
should rework the contents of "Configuring security for your environment" and its two subsections.

The next topic should be "Derby security concepts" and should use the material from the original
"Derby and security" topic.

The other topics should probably remain the same, although additional tweaks are possible.
  Working with user authentication
  Users and authorization identifiers
  User authorizations
  Encrypting databases on disk
  Signed jar files
  User authentication and authorization examples
  Running Derby under a security manager

> It has been recommended that the Derby security documentation in the Developer's Guide
should have more of a task-based focus: instead of beginning with an outline of security concepts
and then describing the tasks a user or administrator should perform to secure Derby, we should
begin with a list of the steps required for security, with links to details on how to perform
them, and cover the concepts after that. Users should have a single location where they can
verify that they have done everything they can to ensure database security.
