Subject [jira] Commented: (WSS-25) UsernameToken password is not checked
Date Thu, 17 Nov 2005 14:16:42 GMT
    [ ] 

Kevin Fung commented on WSS-25:

I used both password text and digest. Digest was checked, but text was not. I see your point,
but I think the convension of JAAS CallbackHandler is to provide the password to the PasswordCallback.
The application (WSSecurityEngine in this case) performs the validation, similar to the way
that password digest is handled.

> In the handleUsernameToken method in WSSecurityEngine class, the password returned by
the password handler is not compared against the password/digest from the UsernameToken. The
result is that any password will be accepted.
