    Enable SSL in hornetq netty-connector with AS 7.2 as a client using pooled-connection-factory and outbound-socket-binding

    lifeonatrip Newbie

      Hello all,

       

      I have a question in regards the use of pooled connection factory with a SSL-enabled netty connector.

       

      The setup is as following:

      • 2 instances of jboss as 7.2
      • Instance A is used as an Application Server (client)
      • Instance B is used only as queue server (HornetQ)

       

      The application deployed in instance A leverage on the AS' pooled-connection-factory to connect to Instance B. Below the portion of the configuration in Instance A:

       

       

      <pooled-connection-factory name="PooledXAConnectionFactory">
        <ha>true</ha>
        <user>USER</user>
        <password>PASS</password>
        <!--consumer-window-size>0</consumer-window-size-->
        <reconnect-attempts>3</reconnect-attempts>
        <retry-interval-multiplier>1.0</retry-interval-multiplier>
        <retry-interval>1000</retry-interval>
        <transaction mode="xa"/>
        <connectors>
            <connector-ref connector-name="remote-netty-connector"/>
        </connectors>
        <entries>
            <entry name="java:/PooledXAConnectionFactory"/>
        </entries>
      </pooled-connection-factory>
      
      

      This is the connectors part inside <hornetq-server>:

       

      <connectors>
          <in-vm-connector name="in-vm" server-id="0"/>
          <netty-connector name="remote-netty-connector" socket-binding="messaging1"/>
      </connectors>
      
      

      And this is the outbound socket binding inside <socket-binding-group>:

       

      <outbound-socket-binding name="messaging1">
          <remote-destination host="10.20.103.87" port="5595"/>
      </outbound-socket-binding>
      
      

       

      In instance B (the actual queue server), the configuration of the netty connector and acceptor referenced in the Instance A as "messaging1"  is as following:

       

      <netty-connector name="messaging1" socket-binding="messaging">
          <param key="ssl-enabled" value="true"/>
          <param key="key-store-path" value="${jboss.domain.config.dir}/keystore.ks"/>
          <param key="trust-store-path" value="${jboss.domain.config.dir}/truststore.ks"/>
          <param key="trust-store-password" value="changeit"/>
          <param key="key-store-password" value="changeit"/>
      </netty-connector>
      
      
      

       

      <netty-acceptor name="messaging1" socket-binding="messaging">                     
         <param key="ssl-enabled" value="true"/>
         <param key="key-store-path" value="${jboss.domain.config.dir}/keystore.ks"/>
         <param key="trust-store-path" value="${jboss.domain.config.dir}/keystore.ks"/>
         <param key="trust-store-password" value="changeit"/>
         <param key="key-store-password" value="changeit"/>
         <param key="direct-deliver" value="false"/>
      </netty-acceptor>
      
      

       

      The setup it's perfectly working if the SSL part is not enabled. Once I enable the SSL in the netty-connector and acceptor I get:

      The application is using Spring + Camel.

       

      Any help would be really appreciated.

          Justin Bertram Master

          I believe the problem is that the connector used on instance A isn't configured to use SSL so when you enable SSL on the acceptor on instance B you can't connect.

           

          The connector on instance B isn't being used by anything as far as I can tell so configuring it to use SSL isn't terribly helpful.

            Hi Justin,

             

            Thanks for your response.

             

            How can I configure the outbound-socket to use the SSL? I could not find it in the Docs.

             

            When you say that the connector on instance B is not used, what do you mean? I am specifying <remote-destination host="10.20.103.87" port="5595"/> on the client Instance A, I thought that this directive will connect whatever uses messaging1 to the Instance B connector. Am I wrong in assuming this?

              Justin Bertram Master

              How can I configure the outbound-socket to use the SSL? I could not find it in the Docs.

              You don't need to configure anything on the outbound socket itself (and I'm not sure why you think you should).  You just need to configure SSL on the connector on instance A.  That is what the pooled connection factory (on instance A) is using to connect to instance B.  Look at the connector you've configured to use SSL on instance B for an example.

               

              When you say that the connector on instance B is not used, what do you mean? I am specifying <remote-destination host="10.20.103.87" port="5595"/> on the client Instance A, I thought that this directive will connect whatever uses messaging1 to the Instance B connector. Am I wrong into assuming this?

              I think you're confused on the semantics of acceptors and connectors.  Simply put, connectors connect and acceptors accept.  A client doesn't connect to a connector.  It connects with a connector to an acceptor.  You have a connector on instance A that is used to to connect to an acceptor on instance B.  If you want to use SSL then both of those components need to be configured as required.  The documentation covers SSL configuration for both connectors and acceptors.

               

              Perhaps you're getting confused because you have a client running in an application server where the connector is configured locally rather than on the remote server.  However, it doesn't matter where the connector is configured (either locally or remotely) as long as it is configured correctly.

                Thanks for your help, let's see if I understand now:

                 

                Instance A connector  ---SSL---> Instance B acceptor

                 

                So, basically I just need to add the ssl setting on the connector of Instance A:

                 

                <connectors>
                    <netty-connector name="remote-netty-connector" socket-binding="messaging1">
                        <param key="ssl-enabled" value="true"/>
                        <param key="key-store-path" value="${jboss.server.config.dir}/keystore.ks"/>
                        <param key="trust-store-path" value="${jboss.server.config.dir}/trustore.ks"/>
                        <param key="trust-store-password" value="changeit"/>
                        <param key="key-store-password" value="changeit"/>
                    </netty-connector>
                </connectors>
                
                

                and in the acceptor of Instance B:

                 

                <netty-acceptor name="remote-netty-acceptor" socket-binding="messaging">
                     <param key="ssl-enabled" value="true"/>
                     <param key="key-store-path" value="${jboss.domain.config.dir}/keystore.ks"/>
                     <param key="trust-store-path" value="${jboss.domain.config.dir}/trustore.ks"/>
                     <param key="trust-store-password" value="changeit"/>
                     <param key="key-store-password" value="changeit"/>
                </netty-acceptor>
                
                

                 

                But I get this:

                So, I am assuming that the trust-store* elements are acceptor only elements.

                 

                Therefore, I am using this as a connector, and it works:

                 

                <connectors>
                    <in-vm-connector name="in-vm" server-id="0"/>
                    <netty-connector name="remote-netty-connector" socket-binding="messaging1">
                        <param key="ssl-enabled" value="true"/>
                        <param key="key-store-path" value="${jboss.server.config.dir}/keystore.ks"/>
                        <param key="key-store-password" value="changeit"/>
                    </netty-connector>
                </connectors>
                
                

                 

                Now the last question is:

                 

                Without the trust-store-path  and the trust-store-password, how the client knows if it can trust the server certificate (it's self signed). It is just using the default Jboss AS one? Or is the acceptor in Instance B to trust the client?

                  5.         <param key="trust-store-path" value="${jboss.server.config.dir}/trustore.ks"/>

                  8.     </netty-connector>

                  You need to upgrade HornetQ to 2.3.0.Final (either by upgrading HornetQ itself or moving to a later version of AS7/EAP/Wildfly) to resolve this issue (i.e. [HORNETQ-408] SSL transport is hardcoded for unilateral mode, see also this discussion thread).  This is an important upgrade if you require SSL functionality.  I can't vouch for the security of the SSL implementation pre 2.3.0.Final.

                   

                  Now the last question is:

                   

                  Without the trust-store-path  and the trust-store-password, how the client knows if it can trust the server certificate (it's self signed). It is just using the default Jboss AS one? Or is the acceptor in Instance B to trust the client?

                  From what I recall (I worked on this over a year ago) the client will simply trust any certificate on the server (which is clearly insecure).  That's why I strongly recommend you upgrade.

                    That's very interesting, this should be mentioned in red bold on the Jboss 7.x documentation (I'll do it).

                     

                    Now, I have another issue with the Jboss Transaction recovery environment. Because I'm running the pooled connection factory in XA, I need a XARecovery environment to be available, this works fine without SSL but when the SSL comes into the game, I get this in Instance A:

                    The client (Instance A) is looking for a truststore or keystore in the directory /usr/local/jboss-as-queue/domain/configuration, however this directory doesn't exist in Instance A and it's only configured in Instance B. Is it taking the truststore/keystore settings from the queue server?

                     

                    If I am correct, how can I define the keystore/truststore to use for the recovery environment? Or I just missed the point?

                          I was under the impression you had upgraded.  IMO, there's basically no point in using SSL in any version before 2.3.0.Final.  Move to at least that version (preferably something even more recent) and then I can give you a hand.

                            Ok, I was thinking that only the authentication part was broken not the encryption one.

                            I obviously cannot upgrade by myself to version 2.3.0.Final (it means changing the internal of the AS and I don't have time and/or expertise) and upgrading the whole AS to 8 it's not an easy task as well since I must migrate the applications.

                             

                            Am I basically forced to turn SSL off and find another way to encrypt the message?

                             

                            I don't understand why a non final release of HornetQ was included as part of the final GA  release of AS 7, that's sounds weird.

                              As I understand it, if authentication is vulnerable then you open yourself to man-in-the-middle attacks which could then compromise encryption.  The two stand and fall together.

                              Unless you upgrade I don't see what other choice you have.

                              It's not clear to me that a non-final release of HornetQ was actually included as part of a GA release of AS7.  The last public release of AS7 available for download is 7.1.1 which includes HornetQ 2.2.13.Final (which is a final release although it still suffers from this issue).  What version of AS7 are you using and from where did you download it?  A user on the forum thread which I linked earlier was unwittingly using JBoss EAP 6.1 Alpha which included HornetQ 2.3.0.CR1, and he solved his problem by using a newer version of JBoss EAP 6.x.  You can likely do the same.

                                Correct in majority of the cases, especially in public networks, but in my case, I already trust the authenticity of the other end.

                                Is there really no way to configure this XARecovery environment with SSL?

                                 

                                It's not clear to me that a non-final release of HornetQ was actually included as part of a GA release of AS7.  The last public release of AS7 available for download is 7.1.1 which includes HornetQ 2.2.13.Final (which is a final release although it still suffers from this issue).  What version of AS7 are you using and from where did you download it?  A user on the forum thread which I linked earlier was unwittingly using JBoss EAP 6.1 Alpha which included HornetQ 2.3.0.CR1, and he solved his problem by using a newer version of JBoss EAP 6.x.  You can likely do the same.

                                 

                                The latest public release of Jboss AS 7.x is 7.2.Final, I am not using EAP (it's not the topic of the discussion but I am not interested in switching to the EAP version).

                                The source I'm using is this one jbossas/jboss-as at 7.2.0.Final-testsuite-fix · GitHub. (This is the commit for hornetq version change [AS7-6398] Upgrade to HornetQ 2.3.0.CR1 · 209a7cf · jbossas/jboss-as · GitHub )

                                As discussed in the community during 7.2 release time, 7.2 was called EAP 6.1 (and used as base for EAP) but despite that version name, 7.2 was the actual latest AS7 stable release. (as mentioned in the git commit  that states "version 7.2.0.Final")

                                Version 7.2 also fixes many bugs that I experienced with 7.1.1, that's why I don't understand the introduction of many CR and Beta packages in 7.2.0.Final (why call it final?)

                                 

                                Thanks for spending your time helping me out on this, it's really appreciated.
