    Yet another principal=null case

    Ludovico Basili Newbie

      Hello,
      I have recently moved from jboss-3.2.0 to jboss-3.2.3. I have the problem of a null principal when using ClientLoginModule.
      I read several message about this problem, but I was not able to find a solution there.

      Can you help me ?
      Thank you very much.


      To isolate the problem, I wrote the following jsp that performs login and executes a method on an EJB:

      <%@ page import="java.io.*" %>
      <%@ page import="javax.naming.*" %>
      <%@ page import="javax.rmi.PortableRemoteObject" %>

      <%@ page import="javax.security.auth.callback.PasswordCallback" %>

      <%@ page import="ztc.vo.PostLoginData" %>
      
       <%
       CallbackHandler callback = new CallbackHandler() {
       public void handle(Callback[] callbacks)
       throws IOException, UnsupportedCallbackException {
       for (int i=0;i<callbacks.length;i++){
       if (callbacks instanceof NameCallback)
       {
       NameCallback nc =
       (NameCallback) callbacks;
       nc.setName("root");
       }
       else if (callbacks instanceof PasswordCallback)
       {
       PasswordCallback pc =
       (PasswordCallback) callbacks;
       String pwd = "changeme";
       pc.setPassword(pwd.toCharArray());
       }
       }
       }
       };
       try {
       LoginContext lc = new LoginContext(
       "other"
       ,callback
       );
       lc.login();
       }catch(LoginException neverThrown){
       }
      
       Context ctx = new InitialContext();
       Object ref = ctx.lookup("SessionController");
       SessionControllerHome home = (SessionControllerHome)
       PortableRemoteObject.narrow(ref,SessionControllerHome.class);
       SessionController sc = home.create();
       PostLoginData data = sc.getPostLoginData();
      %>
      Data is <%=data%>
      


      I obtain the exception:

          Gerald Turner Newbie

          Thanks for your reply jburugupalli, I believe I understand the thread local nature of JAAS, and have coded the logout exactly as you have suggested.

          Each request to the servlet I have is:


          Instantiating a LoginContext along with newly instantiated username/password CallbackHandler.

          Invoking LoginContext.login().

          Performing an external JNDI lookup of the remote home interface of a Stateless Session Bean.

          Creating the session bean instance.

          Invoking one method on the session bean.

          Removing the session bean enclosed in a finally block with try starting at the previous step.

          Invoking LoginContext.logout() enclosed in a finally block with try starting all the way back to JNDI lookup.


          Here is the method which is doing all of the above:

           public Prequalification prequalify(User user,
           Address address,
           String phone,
           String serviceType,
           String interfaceType)
           throws SimilarAddressesFoundException,
           AddressNotFoundException {
          
           LoginContext loginContext;
           try {
           loginContext =
           WaveAuth.createLoginContext(user.getUsername(),
           user.getPassword());
           }
           catch (Exception e) {
           String message = "Failed to begin authentication of User "
           + user + " to Wave: " + Strings.exceptionToString(e);
           throw new AddressNotFoundException(message, e);
           }
          
           try {
           loginContext.login();
           }
           catch (Exception e) {
           String message = "Failed to login User " + user + " to Wave"
           + ": " + Strings.exceptionToString(e);
           throw new AddressNotFoundException(message, e);
           }

           requestAddress.setCity(address.getCity());
           requestAddress.setState(StateAbbreviation.getEnum(address.getState()));
           requestAddress.setZip(address.getZip());
           PrequalificationPhone requestPhone = new PrequalificationPhone();
           request.setPhone(requestPhone);
           String[] phones = Strings.parsePhone(phone);
           if (phones.length > 0)
           requestPhone.setAreaCode(phones[0]);
           if (phones.length > 1)
           requestPhone.setExchangeCode(phones[1]);
           if (phones.length > 2)
           requestPhone.setLine(phones[2]);

          The remote Tomcat 4.0 (where the above code is executed) has a copy of the JBoss auth.conf and is used by System property java.security.auth.login.config, however I am using "client-login" instead of "other" which lbasili is using in the code he posted, I forgot what the purpose of that was, but it's been runing for years, growing from JBoss 3.0 to 3.2!

          The Tomcat and JBoss processes happen to be running on the same server in this test (different servers in production), different VMs though, the server is clunkly old Sun SMP hardware (2 CPUs).

          Maybe this is of interest: The method of the Stateless Session bean that is being invoked (Prequalification.prequalifyAddress) has "unchecked" security declaration, however Entity Beans that are being invoked (finders and getters) do have security declarations. In the rare circumstance when the "principal=null" SecurityException is thrown, the violation occurs at the first Entity Bean finder invoked within the prequalify method.

          Here is the exception being thrown on the JBoss side:

            Scott Stark Master

            Then prove that the LoginException neverThrown is in fact never thrown. I would say it is being thrown and therefore you have no security context, thus you have a null principal. No magic there.

            • 3. Re: Yet another principal=null case
              Ludovico Basili Newbie

              Hello,
              thank you for your response. I removed the catch block, but actually that exception is not thrown.
              Notice that both create() and getPostLoginData() methods of the invoked EJB require authentication, and that only the second one fails.
              IMVHO somewhere I overwrite the SecurityAssociation settings (but where ? and why does it work with jboss-3-2-0 ?).


              I put a System.out.println and a stack trace dump in the SecurityAssociation.setPrincipal method, and what I can see is that this method is called 9 times.
              The first six times are OK, and the correct principal is set. These calls are related to the create() call, that invokes nested EJBs and a MBean, and each time sets the principal again.
              Notice that in the log dump "NULL" actually stands for a null principal, while "null" is
              new SimplePrincipal(null).



              [root@ztc5 ZTC-Server]# grep 'Set principal' output

              2004-05-27 16:24:23,034 INFO [STDOUT] Set principal to NULL


              In the last three calls something goes bad. The first time it is the StatefulSessionInstanceInterceptor that sets the principal to null.

              The second one, the ClientLoginModule.login method is called, but it do not invoke my callback handler to retrieve the principal/credential values.

              Have you got any idea ?

              Thank you very much.

              Here I append the log with the stacktraces of the last three calls

                If you are using the RMIAdaptor to do any invocations this clears the security association from the calling thread as its meant to be used by external clients and whatever thread pool is dispatching the invocation should not be leaking the security context.

                From within the server MBean invocations need to be done using the standard JMX MBeanServerFactory to obtain the MBeanServer.

                  Scott, could you please elaborate on what you mean by "whatever thread pool is dispatching the invocation should not be leaking the security context"? I have been using JBoss 3.2.3 in production for several months and it has an external RMI client (running on Tomcat 4.0) that is invoking session beans and is using the same kind of LoginContext code that lbasili has put in a JSP. Occasionally I notice an error emitted by our system with principal=null, I haven't really looked into it too deep because it doesn't seem to be very often. However today I've been working on a new session bean that is going to get called by this remote client with heavy utilization. While stress testing this error occurrs about once over 10 invocations.

                  Could the remote Tomcat be doing something mysterious with threads that it occasionally looses the security context?

                    Hi,
                    I think the awnswer for your question is given in different posts but any way i repeat...

                    that the tomcat some how looses the LoginContext information while handling its threads ....

                    Suppose servlet1 calling a bean has a correct context while executing in thread1 but the same servlet calling the same bean will not work in another thread..

                    The fix for this is for each and every call irrespective of threads you should make a LoginContext.login() and after the call is finished you make a call LoginContext.logout(). This can be easily done by using filters in case of servlets and jsps's.

                    hope u got the point
                    regards
                    jani

                      Hi Scott,
                      actually there was a call to a MBean through the RMIAdaptor in the create() method of the SessionController. I commented out it and now it is ok !

                      Thank you very much for your help.

                      Bye,

                      --

                        Thanks for your reply jburugupalli, I believe I understand the thread local nature of JAAS, and have coded the logout exactly as you have suggested.

                        Each request to the servlet I have is:


                        Instantiating a LoginContext along with newly instantiated username/password CallbackHandler.

                        Invoking LoginContext.login().

                        Performing an external JNDI lookup of the remote home interface of a Stateless Session Bean.

                        Creating the session bean instance.

                        Invoking one method on the session bean.

                        Removing the session bean enclosed in a finally block with try starting at the previous step.

                        Invoking LoginContext.logout() enclosed in a finally block with try starting all the way back to JNDI lookup.


                        Here is the method which is doing all of the above:

                         public Prequalification prequalify(User user,

                        The remote Tomcat 4.0 (where the above code is executed) has a copy of the JBoss auth.conf and is used by System property java.security.auth.login.config, however I am using "client-login" instead of "other" which lbasili is using in the code he posted, I forgot what the purpose of that was, but it's been runing for years, growing from JBoss 3.0 to 3.2!

                        The Tomcat and JBoss processes happen to be running on the same server in this test (different servers in production), different VMs though, the server is clunkly old Sun SMP hardware (2 CPUs).

                        Maybe this is of interest: The method of the Stateless Session bean that is being invoked (Prequalification.prequalifyAddress) has "unchecked" security declaration, however Entity Beans that are being invoked (finders and getters) do have security declarations. In the rare circumstance when the "principal=null" SecurityException is thrown, the violation occurs at the first Entity Bean finder invoked within the prequalify method.

                        Here is the exception being thrown on the JBoss side:

                          Unless the login module configuration being used here(which you do not show because its hidden in the WaveAuth.createLoginContext) includes the org.jboss.security.ClientLoginModule, there is no propagation of the security context to the remote call. Get your debugger and find out if ClientLoginModule is being invoked as part of the LoginContext.login. This has nothing to do with the thread local security association because your entirely within the context of a single call with stack local variables.
