Subject [jira] Commented: (JSPWIKI-212) transport-guarantee CONFIDENTIAL should be removed from web.xml
Date Sat, 05 Apr 2008 17:57:28 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JSPWIKI-212?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12586027#action_12586027

Jürgen Weber commented on JSPWIKI-212:
--------------------------------------

I guess

* most JSPWiki installations are intranet, so no need for SSL
* if you have JSPWiki on the internet, you will have it listen on port 80, but you won't run
Tomcat as root, so you use Apache and mod_jk, and Apache does the SSL stuff.

>             Project: JSPWiki
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Authentication&Authorization
>    Affects Versions: 2.6.2
>         Environment: apache-tomcat-6.0.16
>            Reporter: Jürgen Weber
>            Priority: Minor
>
> The default web.xml of JSPWiki contains two times
>  <user-data-constraint>
>            <transport-guarantee>CONFIDENTIAL</transport-guarantee>
>        </user-data-constraint>
> for container managed authorization.
> But by default Tomcat has not switched on SSL, and trying to log in to JSPWiki you get
> Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at localhost:8443.
> By default the user-data-constraint element should be removed as it makes activating
container managed authorization unnecessarily difficult.
> Especially as it is not easy or obvious to notice the connection between the cited error
message and the user-data-constraint element.
