Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSERVER-870) Simplify the password cache mechanism
Date Fri, 09 Mar 2007 20:27:09 GMT

Emmanuel Lecharny commented on DIRSERVER-870:
---------------------------------------------

Removed the cache in the SimpleAuthenticator, o avoid having potential pbs when a user modify
his password. This should also fix issue DIRSERVER-872 (which was already fixed by Alex, by
cache invalidation).

> We have at least two level of caches for user passwrds :
> - one is managed into the Authenticator
> - and we may also have a cache associated with the userPassword attributeTypes (if declared
in the configuration)
> We could keep only one cache by simply removing the weak cache from the authenticator
(this cache cannot be resized, its size is staically fixed to 1000 passwords).
> The main problem with this cache is that we have to update it when a user modify his
password, when the standard cache is automatically updated. And from a philosophical point
of view, doing the same thing at two different places is somehow a waste of time and error
prone ...
