Subject [jira] [Updated] (HADOOP-11216) Improve Openssl library finding
Date Mon, 27 Oct 2014 23:54:35 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-11216?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Colin Patrick McCabe updated HADOOP-11216:
    Attachment: HADOOP-11216.003.patch

* Use {{find_package(OpenSSL)}}, which relies on the built-in {{FindOpenSSL.cmake}} module.
 This avoids the problem where we have to guess the version number (it is wildly different
on different distros, and there is no major/minor version consistency).

* Set {{bundle.snappy.in.bin}} to false by default.  We definitely don't want to bundle openssl
by default.  Given that the library has experienced several security vulnerabilities recently,
we don't want to distribute it.

* Remove {{openssl.prefix}}, {{openssl.lib}}, {{openssl.include}}.  These were not implemented
previously (they could be set, but they didn't do anything.)  They  are not necessary because
people can simply set the {{CMAKE_LIBRARY_PATH}} environment variable when building, or modify
{{ld.so.conf}} to get the same effect.  We shouldn't need these in any case, since we should
be linking against the system openssl.

> When we compile Openssl 1.0.0\(x\) or 1.0.1\(x\) using default options, there will be
{{libcrypto.so.1.0.0}} in output lib dir, so we expect this version suffix in cmake build
> {code}
> set_find_shared_library_version("1.0.0")
> SET(OPENSSL_NAME "crypto")
> ....
> {code}
> If we don't bundle the crypto shared library in Hadoop distribution, then Hadoop will
try to find crypto library in system path when running.
> But in real linux distribution, there may be no {{libcrypto.so.1.0.0}} or {{libcrypto.so}}
even the system embedded openssl is 1.0.1\(x\).  Then we need to make symbolic link.
> This JIRA is to improve the Openssl library finding.
