[Pki-devel] Error in pki/base/common/src/com/netscape/cms/authentication/FlatFileAuth.java



Hello,
 
we tried to use the FlatFileAuth authentication filter for some tests. It
did not work correctly, as it just used the first username/password pair in
the flat authentication file.
 
I tracked this down to the getValueNames() method in FlatFileAuth which
simply returns a null pointer, which causes the username/password compare to
shortcut and work only for the first username/password pair in the
authentication file.
 
When replaced with this method implementation:

	/**
	* Retrieves a list of names of the value parameter.
	*/
	public Enumeration getValueNames() {
	    Vector retVal = new Vector();
	    for (int i = 0; i < authAttrs.length; i++) {
	        retVal.add(authAttrs[i]);
	    }
	    for (int i = 0; i < keyAttrs.length; i++) {
	        retVal.add(keyAttrs[i]);
	    }
	    return retVal.elements();
	}

the authenticator works as expected. This bug is not yet fixed in the 14561
revision of FlatFileAuth that I checked out of the SVN last thursday (Feb
12th 09). 
 
The fix also helps our historic iplanet Certificate Server 4.7 SP1
installation :-)

Yours,
Alexander Jung
