Subject [jira] [Updated] (QPID-5894) Python client SSL authentication passes when "ssl_skip_hostname_check" is "false" and "ssl_trustfile" is not given
Date Mon, 14 Jul 2014 16:41:04 GMT

Ernest Allen updated QPID-5894:

    Attachment: QPID-5894.patch

The patch (from Ernie Allen) assumes that if the ssl_skip_hostname_check is explicitly set
to false, a secure connection is required. If the trustfile is not specified, an exception
will be raised.

> If the flag "ssl_skip_hostname_check" is explicity set to "false", but no trustfile is
given, the python client create an insecure connection without a warning or error.
> The following command line illustrates the problem:
> spout.py  --broker <hostname>:5671 --connection-options "{  username : 'guest',
ssl_certfile : <path_to_client.pem>, protocol : 'amqp0-10', sasl_mechanisms : 'DIGEST-MD5',
ssl_skip_hostname_check : 'false', password : 'guest', transport : 'ssl' }" --count 1 --sync-mode
None "amq.topic;{}"
> No trustfile was given, but ssl_skip_hostname_check was set to false. This implies that
the user wants to check the hostname. But without a valid trustfile, that is not possible.
In this case, the connection should not silently succeed with an insecure connection.
