Subject [jira] [Closed] (DERBY-3014) Make SYSCS_UTIL.SYSCS_GET_DATABASE_PROPERTY('derby.user.<username>') return NULL instead of the hash value of the password
Date Mon, 29 Oct 2012 16:46:14 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3014?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Rick Hillegas closed DERBY-3014.
--------------------------------

    Resolution: Won't Fix

Closing this issue as "Won't fix". That's because BUILTIN authentication is not intended for
production use. Our user guides make this clear now. NATIVE authentication is the production-quality
password manager which we ship with the product. See DERBY-866.

> Increases security by providing less information to any attacker. The current returned
hash value could be used in an off-line dictionary based attack to find a valid password.
