Subject [jira] [Commented] (SHIRO-441) Explain how "Remember Me" works under the hood and that you might want to use a custom cipher key
Date Fri, 26 Feb 2016 03:23:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SHIRO-441?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15168358#comment-15168358

Andreas Kohn commented on SHIRO-441:
------------------------------------

The pre-defined key issue relates to SHIRO-550 -- a really quick fix for the security aspect
there is not enable the remember-me functionality by default.

>             Project: Shiro
>          Issue Type: Documentation
>          Components: Documentation, Sample Apps
>    Affects Versions: 1.2.1

> Neither the tutorial (http://shiro.apache.org/tutorial.html (section "Using Shiro"))
nor the the reference documentation (http://shiro.apache.org/authentication.html#Authentication-Rememberedvs.Authenticated
(chapter "Authentication")) give any hints that without a custom cipher key the - publicly
available - default key will be used (defined in http://grepcode.com/file/repo1.maven.org/maven2/com.ning/metrics.collector/1.2.1/org/apache/shiro/mgt/AbstractRememberMeManager.java/).
> Especially the statement in the tutorial is questionable: "this is all you have to do
to support 'remember me' (no config - built in!)". While true and fairly obvious to advanced
developers the potential security implications should be better explained.
