Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-558) Validate Content-MD5 request headers on uploads
Date Mon, 02 Nov 2009 20:58:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-558?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12772685#action_12772685
] 

Robert Newson commented on COUCHDB-558:
---------------------------------------

This would be very useful but I think there will be pushback for choosing MD5 (Yes, it's not
broken for this usage but try educating PHB's). A database creation time configuration for
other digest algorithms would be cool, though I appreciate Erlang is limited in its choice
(the only other choice is sha1, iirc?)

> We could detect in-flight data corruption if a client sends a Content-MD5 header along
with the data and Couch validates the MD5 on arrival.
