LDAP bind passwords are properly obfuscated In some cases, it was previously possible for the *sosreport* utility to capture LDAP bind credentials in plain text. This problem has been fixed, and LDAP bind passwords are now obfuscated in *sosreport* as expected.

Description Josep 'Pep' Turro Mauri 2015-06-02 17:35:26 UTC
Description of problem:
If the openshift broker or console httpd configuration uses LDAP authentication that requires binding, the collected config file would contain an AuthLDAPBindPassword that is not obfuscated by the plugin.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure an OpenShift broker to use LDAP authentication and uses a binddn with a password 
2. collect sosreport

Actual results:
/var/www/openshift/{broker,console}/httpd/conf.d/openshift-origin-auth-remote-user-ldap.conf are copied as is including the password

Expected results:
AuthLDAPBindPassword is obfuscated

Additional info:
See LDAP Authentication in the deployment guide and AuthLDAPBindDN / AuthLDAPBindPassword of mod_ldap

Comment 1 Josep 'Pep' Turro Mauri 2015-06-02 17:51:22 UTC
sos-2.2-68.el6.noarch is what's available right now in EL6 but this applies to any version including upstream AFAIK.

A sample openshift-origin-auth-remote-user-ldap.conf showing the problem looks like this:

<Location /broker>
  AuthName "OpenShift broker API"
  AuthType Basic
  AuthBasicProvider ldap
  AuthLDAPBindDN "cn=user,ou=Users,dc=example,dc=com"
  AuthLDAPURL "ldaps:///ldap.example.com/ou=Users,dc=example,dc=com?SamAccountName?sub?"
  require valid-user
  AuthLDAPBindPassword "IShouldNotBeHere"
