Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-4896) Commands to a Secure JMX Connector require the SSL keyStorePassword to be specified on command line
Date Wed, 16 Dec 2009 08:52:18 GMT


Ashish Jain commented on GERONIMO-4896:

Uploading a jar file JavaAgent.jar. Add this to lib directory of geronimo installation. Modify
the deploy.bat as follows

Here LOCATION_OF_JAVA_AGENT_JAR= Exact location of JavaAgent.jar.

> To my knowledge, it is not possible to run a Geronimo command (e.g. deploy
or gsh geronimo/stop-server) to a server with a secure JMX Connector (running SSL, without
specifying the following Java system properties on the command line:

> For example:
> {code}
> export GERONIMO_HOME=~/target/geronimo-jetty6-javaee5-2.2-SNAPSHOT
> export JAVA_OPTS="$GERONIMO_HOME/var/security/keystores/geronimo-default$GERONIMO_HOME/var/security/keystores/geronimo-default"
> $GERONIMO_HOME/bin/ -u system -p manager --secure list-modules --stopped
> {code}
> causes a problem, since this means the keyStorePassword
is available, in-the-clear, to someone inspecting executing processes. For example while a
deploy command was active, someone could run 'ps auxww | grep deployer.jar' and discover the
keyStorePassword for the KeyStore.
> Geronimo should provide a mechanism, whereby users can specify the keyStorePassword without
making that secret available to anyone inspecting processes running on the current system.
Ideally, the password could be encrypted/obfuscated within a file (just as passwords can be
encrypted/obfuscated in var/config/config.xml).
