Description (last modified by jmoore)

The primary challenge is testing that the configuration can gracefully fail (if permitted)
If SSL cannot be enabled at all times (because of plugins, etc?) then the following changes may be necessary:

  • strip the "ssl ..." section out of Ice.Default.Router
  • check for null ports in createSession
  • check client(string) constructor argument for starts with "tcp " or "ssl "

A few points:

  • For both clients and the invocation of bin/omero admin start, it's necessary to have (DY)LD_LIBRARY_PATH properly set in order to find the IceSSL shared library (e.g. /opt/local/lib/ under mac ports)
  • The initial implementation will be to have SSL/port 4064 as the only connection available for Glacier2
  • Communication between Glacier2 and the servers is still unencrypted
  • When connecting to a non-SSL Glacier2 instance, it is necessary to pass 4063 as the port:
    In [1]: import omero
    In [2]: c = omero.client("localhost")
    In [3]: print c.ic.getProperties()
    Ice.Default.Router=OMERO.Glacier2/router:ssl -p 4064 -h localhost:tcp -p 4064 -h localhost
    In [4]: s = c.createSession("root","ome")

  • Component changed from General to Security
  • Remaining Time changed from 1 to 0
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

From a security perspective, ADH is working fine, and for 4.2 we probably don't want to get into certificate based authentication, however it is too slow, described in #2099, which is scheduled for the next iteration.
