Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-1895) ManifoldCF SearchComponent plugin for enforcing ManifoldCF security at search time
Date Tue, 20 Sep 2011 03:42:08 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-1895?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13108351#comment-13108351
] 

Chris Male commented on SOLR-1895:
----------------------------------

I agree with Erik.  Security should be the first step in the chain since it may have an impact
on any of the later components.  

I kind of do agree that having this in Solr core is a little messy, especially since by default
it depends on an external service.  Yet at the same time there has been a real thirst from
users for some out-of-box security system.  At the moment the scope of this component is quite
small, but down the line we might want a more comprehensive security system that this would
just be part of?

> I've written an LCF SearchComponent which filters returned results based on access tokens
provided by LCF's authority service.  The component requires you to configure the appropriate
authority service URL base, e.g.:
>   <!-- LCF document security enforcement component -->
>   <searchComponent name="lcfSecurity" class="LCFSecurityFilter">
>     <str name="AuthorityServiceBaseURL">http://localhost:8080/lcf-authority-service</str>
>   </searchComponent>
> Also required are the following schema.xml additions:
>    <!-- Security fields -->
>    <field name="allow_token_document" type="string" indexed="true" stored="false"
multiValued="true"/>
>    <field name="deny_token_document" type="string" indexed="true" stored="false" multiValued="true"/>
>    <field name="allow_token_share" type="string" indexed="true" stored="false" multiValued="true"/>
>    <field name="deny_token_share" type="string" indexed="true" stored="false" multiValued="true"/>
> Finally, to tie it into the standard request handler, it seems to need to run last:
>   <requestHandler name="standard" class="solr.SearchHandler" default="true">
>     <arr name="last-components">
>       <str>lcfSecurity</str>
>     </arr>
> ...
> I have not set a package for this code.  Nor have I been able to get it reviewed by someone
as conversant with Solr as I would prefer.  It is my hope, however, that this module will
become part of the standard Solr 1.5 suite of search components, since that would tie it in
with LCF nicely.
