Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-3073) More security bugs in openejb integration
Date Mon, 09 Apr 2007 01:07:32 GMT


David Jencks commented on GERONIMO-3073:

more problems:

- GeronimoIdentityResolver pulls in a dependency on openejb-client in geronimo-security which
is quite inappropriate

- The GeronimoIdentityResolver/GeronimoSecurityService pair let us eliminate the "remote login"
stuff in geronimo-security, which will eliminate all the hard-to-understand parts of geronimo-security.
 It might remove kerberos capabilities, but we can re-add those pretty easily and there's
probably a more appropriate way to use kerberos.

> - GeronimoIdentityResolver should get the subject from the ContextManager, not Subject.getSubject,
since it's possible to do a login programatically without a CallbackHandler and skip the Subject.doAs(),
and furthermore at least in 1.4 jvms the subject from Subject.getSubject tends to disappear
after a while.
> - Most likely we need to map the "business home" and local home methods to "unchecked"
so that injection can work if the default principal is not authorized for everything.
