Subject [jira] [Created] (DIRSERVER-1690) EncryptionTypes are not correctly handled in the server
Date Wed, 25 Jan 2012 19:03:41 GMT
EncryptionTypes are not correctly handled in the server
-------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: DIRSERVER-1690
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSERVER-1690
             Project: Directory ApacheDS
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Emmanuel Lecharny
            Priority: Blocker


Currently, EncryptionType are stored in a Set, and we compare the expected ETypes passed by
the client with the configured ETypes we support in the server. They are both stored in a
Set, which is not ordered.

The problem is that there is nothing like a EType negotiation between the client and the server,
so the encrypted data will be encrypted using the strongest Etype found in the list of Etypes,
where the leftmost EType is the strongest, and the rightmost is the weaker.

Using a set is then a guarantee that we will face issues at some point. We must use a List
instead.
