Subject [jira] Created: (DIRSERVER-1489) Provide access to remote connection info
Date Mon, 29 Mar 2010 00:39:27 GMT
Provide access to remote connection info

                 Key: DIRSERVER-1489
             Project: Directory ApacheDS
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 1.5.5
            Reporter: Matt Doran

I'm developing a custom partition and custom authentication handler to plug into ApacheDS,
and need to know the connection details of the client performing the requests.    A reason
why this might be useful it to be able to log the source of invalid authentication requests.

The CoreSession object has a getClientAddress() method, however it always returns null.  The
CoreSession object is accessible from the places where it would be useful (i.e. via the context
objects passed into the Partition methods ... and also in the AuthenticationInterceptor.)
  Upon further investigation it looks like the implementation in DefaultCoreSession is hard-coded
to return null.  :(

It also appears that the services main CoreSession object is reused alot (e.g. in the authentication
interceptor we use the same session object no matter who the caller is).

I was interested in putting in a short-term patch to work-around this issue while a longer
term solution was considered.  But I couldn't find anything obvious.   I'd think it would
make sense to stuff the client address into the session somewhere up in one of the protocol
handlers (e.g. LdapRequestHandler.handleMessage) ... but there currently isn't anywhere to
put this info.  Any ideas on a short-term (even if hacky) way to achieve this?
