Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-12862) LDAP Group Mapping over SSL can not specify trust store
Date Fri, 16 Mar 2018 23:00:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-12862?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16403075#comment-16403075

Konstantin Shvachko commented on HADOOP-12862:
----------------------------------------------

Sounds like testing is a longer-term issue. BTW if I look into Hadoop dependencies I see apacheds
and ldapsdk. May they be useful for testing. I wouldn't know.
The testing went well in our environment.
What do you think about removing {{.ssl.truststore.password}}? I really think people should
not use configs for passwords. Typically configs are checked in in git repositories, so having
passwords there is even worth than printing them on a command line, which [as you suggested|https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-15315?focusedCommentId=16399166&page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#comment-16399166]
is a bad practice.

> In a secure environment, SSL is used to encrypt LDAP request for group mapping resolution.
> We (+[~yoderme], +[~tgrayson]) have found that its implementation is strange.
> For information, Hadoop name node, as an LDAP client, talks to a LDAP server to resolve
the group mapping of a user. In the case of LDAP over SSL, a typical scenario is to establish
one-way authentication (the client verifies the server's certificate is real) by storing the
server's certificate in the client's truststore.
> A rarer scenario is to establish two-way authentication: in addition to store truststore
for the client to verify the server, the server also verifies the client's certificate is
real, and the client stores its own certificate in its keystore.
> However, the current implementation for LDAP over SSL does not seem to be correct in
that it only configures keystore but no truststore (so LDAP server can verify Hadoop's certificate,
but Hadoop may not be able to verify LDAP server's certificate)
> I think there should an extra pair of properties to specify the truststore/password for
LDAP server, and use that to configure system properties {{javax.net.ssl.trustStore}}/{{javax.net.ssl.trustStorePassword}}
> I am a security layman so my words can be imprecise. But I hope this makes sense.
