Subject [jira] [Created] (ZOOKEEPER-3069) document: is mutual auth with DIGEST-MD5 insecure?
Date Mon, 25 Jun 2018 17:13:00 GMT
Jan Zerebecki created ZOOKEEPER-3069:
----------------------------------------

             Summary: document: is mutual auth with DIGEST-MD5 insecure?
                 Key: ZOOKEEPER-3069
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER-3069
             Project: ZooKeeper
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: documentation
            Reporter: Jan Zerebecki


The [documentation regarding mutual ZooKeeper server to server authentication with DIGEST-MD5|https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/ZOOKEEPER/Server-Server+mutual+authentication#Server-Servermutualauthentication-DIGEST-MD5basedauthentication]
currently doesn't mention whether this is insecure. [DIGEST-MD5 was declared obsolete in 2011
due to security problems.|https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6331]

This is in relation to whether this is an effective mitigation for CVE-2018-8012 AKA ZOOKEEPER-1045,
as mentioned in [https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/c75147028c1c79bdebd4f8fa5db2b77da85de2b05ecc0d54d708b393@%3Cdev.zookeeper.apache.org%3E].

Would the following be a fitting addition to the documentation?:

DIGEST-MD5 based authentication should not be relied on for authentication as it is insecure,
it is only provided for test purposes.
