Subject [jira] [Created] (YARN-5836) NMToken passwd not checked in ContainerManagerImpl, so that malicious AM can fake the Token and kill containers of other apps at will
Date Fri, 04 Nov 2016 15:48:58 GMT
Botong Huang created YARN-5836:
----------------------------------

             Summary: NMToken passwd not checked in ContainerManagerImpl, so that malicious
AM can fake the Token and kill containers of other apps at will
                 Key: YARN-5836
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-5836
             Project: Hadoop YARN
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: nodemanager
            Reporter: Botong Huang
            Assignee: Botong Huang
            Priority: Minor


When AM calls NM via stopContainers in ContainerManagementProtocol, the NMToken (generated
by RM) is passed along via the user ugi. However currently ContainerManagerImpl is not validating
this token correctly, specifically in authorizeGetAndStopContainerRequest in ContainerManagerImpl.
Basically it blindly trusts the content in the NMTokenIdentifier without verifying the password
(RM generated signature) in the NMToken, so that malicious AM can just fake the content in
the NMTokenIdentifier and pass it to NMs. Moreover, currently even for plain text checking,
when the appId doesn’t match, all it does is log it as a warning and continues to kill the
container…

For startContainers the NMToken is not checked correctly in authorizeUser as well, however
the ContainerToken is verified properly by regenerating and comparing the password in verifyAndGetContainerTokenIdentifier,
so that malicious AM cannot launch containers at will.
