Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-5480) Web security does not work on Equinox
Date Thu, 29 Jul 2010 15:15:16 GMT


Jarek Gawor commented on GERONIMO-5480:

Just to provide some more background on this issue. On Felix each bundle gets a ProtectionDomain
with the default permissions. On Equinox each bundle gets a ProtectionDomain with default
permissions + AllPermissions. The ContextManager class (in geronimo-security bundle) sets
up a default Subject (EMPTY). That subject gets the protection domain of the geronimo-security
bundle. During web authentication the different Web*Permissions are checked against the default
subject. Since the subject on Equinox contains AllPermissions all permission requests are
granted and that's why the user is never prompted for username/password info.

That is, things behave as the user is already authenticated. This can be easily observed with
the admin console or security-testsuite. Authentication works as expected on Felix.
