Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRSERVER-641) provide a security context to
Date Mon, 03 Jul 2006 09:03:30 GMT
    [ ] 

Ralf Hauser commented on DIRSERVER-641:

as for the SSL issue, there is a 
    javax.naming.Context.SECURITY_PROTOCOL = "";
that can be queried similar to the principal with 
but unfortunately, it appears that the ldaps implementation does not set this...

> The ldap application we are working on has high security requirements, both in terms
of "fine-grained"-policies we need to be able to implement as well as for the audit trail
we must be able to provide.
> For that, we should be able to distinguish/ensure/record in our authenticate() method
> - whether the bind request was received unprotected or protected
> - if with SSL protected, what session key was negotiated (if with 256+bit AES, client
is entitled to see more than with 128 bit, let alone 40). 
> These give our application strong hints whether we must consider a credential (passwords
in particular) compromised or not.
> I assume this would either imply adding 1-2 more parameters to the method interface of
