Subject [jira] [Created] (SOLR-9702) Authentication & Authorization based on Jetty security
Date Sat, 29 Oct 2016 19:35:59 GMT
Thomas Quinot created SOLR-9702:

             Summary: Authentication & Authorization based on Jetty security
                 Key: SOLR-9702
             Project: Solr
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: Public (Default Security Level. Issues are Public)
          Components: security
    Affects Versions: 6.2.1
            Reporter: Thomas Quinot

(following up on comments initially posted on SOLR-7275).

Back in Solr 4 days, user authentication could be handled by Jetty, and some level of authorization
could be implemented using request regexp rules. This was explicitly documented in the SolrSecurity

In particular, authentication could thus be performed against a variety of services implemented
in Jetty, such as HashLoginService (mentioned explicitly in the above documentation, tested
in production, does work) or possibly JAASLoginService, which in turn would open up the possibility
to use a whole range of auth services (in particular LDAP servers).

I see that the usage of Jetty is now "an implementation detail". Does this mean that the feature
listed above is not supported anymore? (This is quite unfortunate IMO, as even just the HashLoginService
would be useful to authenticate users against a database of UNIX crypt(3) passwords)

The new login services that are apparently being reimplemented in Solr itself seem to be much
less flexible and limited.
