Subject [jira] [Created] (PROTON-553) Proton-C does not URLdecode password before doing SASL-PLAIN
Date Wed, 02 Apr 2014 22:34:17 GMT
James Birdsall created PROTON-553:

             Summary: Proton-C does not URLdecode password before doing SASL-PLAIN
                 Key: PROTON-553
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PROTON-553
             Project: Qpid Proton
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: proton-c
    Affects Versions: 0.7
            Reporter: James Birdsall

This is a serious issue using Proton-C against ServiceBus because our passwords are base64-encoded
keys and frequently contain '/'. Previous versions of Proton-C didn't care about technically
illegal forward slashes in the URL, but 0.7 sure does. URL encoding the password gets around
that, but then the encoded password is presented to our broker and is rejected. Since Proton
is the one dealing with a URL and enforcing URL rules, it should do the decoding before passing
the pieces on to other layers.
