Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSHARED-36) Attribute type description schema parser uses integer for syntax length, should be BigInteger

Stefan Seelmann commented on DIRSHARED-36:
------------------------------------------

I agree, a long is enough, even it the biggest number is only 2^63-1 ;-)

> The schema parser assumes that the syntax length of an attribute type description is
an integer. RFC4512 states that this is a number:
>     number  = DIGIT / ( LDIGIT 1*DIGIT )
> As an example, Novell eDirectory defines the following AT where the length is greather
then Integer.MAX_VALUE and so parsing fails:
> ( 2.16.840.1.113719.1.1.4.1.123 NAME 'certificateValidityInterval' SYNTAX 1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.27{4294967295}
SINGLE-VALUE X-NDS_NAME 'Certificate Validity Interval' X-NDS_LOWER_BOUND '60' X-NDS_UPPER_BOUND
'-1' X-NDS_NONREMOVABLE '1' )
> We should use a BigInteger and check that the number is positive.
