Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSERVER-997) Block search ability for userPassword attribute
Date Fri, 13 Jul 2007 22:12:05 GMT


Ersin Er commented on DIRSERVER-997:

Hans, this is related to how you configure Authorization. You can deny users for doing anything
with passwords if you want. I don't think this is an issue to be fixed. It can just be done
via configuration. You may have a look at:

> If you are allowed to do a search like
> $ ldapsearch -b o=some.root -s sub 'userPassword="{md5}b4b5835f03bd6748e0cc25790d6f3498"'
> it would render you all objects with the attribute userPassword equal to
> "the secret password", which may not be such a good idea.
> iPlanet DS 4.x allowed searches on ueserPassword attribute with
> directory manager privs I found out.
