Subject Security of Move Operations
Date Wed, 05 Feb 2014 18:15:38 GMT

while discussion effect and possible solutions of OAK-920
michael duerig and myself come across a similar issue in the
move operation.

moving around a given node in the repository may result in the
situation that content previously not accessible to the editing
session becomes readable due to modified (inherited) permissions
in the target location.

while in the case of copy we considered it better to just copy
the readable items, this is not feasible in the case of a move
operation as it would basically remove that content from the

when discussing this in our weekly oak-meeting, tobi proposed
to change the permission evaluation for the move such that
modify-ac permission would be required on the source in order to
be able to complete the move.

this approach would however break backwards compatibility on how
permissions are enforced upon move.


kind regards
