Subject [jira] [Commented] (PIRK-45) Remove dependency on Java serialization
Date Sun, 09 Oct 2016 21:56:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIRK-45?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15560695#comment-15560695

ASF GitHub Bot commented on PIRK-45:

Github user wraydulany commented on the issue:

    Ok, I've expurgated references (import and comment) to jackson in the code, and I've run
the style checker against the code i touched. 
    Additionally, I've investigated the problems with the 1:ES and 1:ESS tests that I'm having,
and I'm convinced that they are due to misconfiguration of the cluster I'm testing on.
    This passes the build tests and distributed tests 1:J, 1:JS, 1:JSS, 1:SS, and 1:E for
me. If anyone has been able to successfully execute the 1:ES and/or 1:ESS tests with this
PR *and* fail them, please comment and kill this PR. Otherwise, I'm going to move this from
WIP to full PR in the late morning on the US East Coast tomorrow.

> Pirk should not depend upon Java serialization as a persistent object format.
> Maintaining support for a variety of versions of Java serialized form can be difficult,
this includes both the querier and responder sides of a PIR.  Alternative formats such as
XML and JSON are more forgiving/extensible.
> Furthermore, and despite Pirk's trust between querier and responder, there are potential
implications for loading the binary representation of Java's serialized instances as a vector
for security vulnerabilities.
