Subject Re: [jira] [Created] (CLEREZZA-801) Fastlaned Sparql query circumvent security
Date Mon, 15 Jul 2013 09:32:34 GMT
Hi Hasan

WIth the slowlane we can do the security checks once the
triple-collections are accessed. With fastlane we don't have this
possibility as the query is passed to the provider and what happens
then is beyond our control.

So we need to look at the query.

In a simplifying solution:
-  see that the query is not doing an update operation and accessing
graphs A and B in which case we check for read permission on A and B

-  see that the query is doing an update operation and accessing
graphs A and B in which case we check for readwrite permission on A
and B


In a more advanced solution we would also see that the query

COPY <A> TO <B>

needs read permisson for A and readwrite permission for B.

If the preparser for now would not implement support for the advanced
solution this would be no problem. But the API should be already
designed in a way to allow support for it. So the preparser should
return a tuple of a set of graphs accessed for reading only and one
with the graphs accessing for writing too. If for now all update
oprations results in all graphs being in the second set, that's no
problem.

Cheers,
Reto
