CORBA34 — Firewall Traversal algorithm

  • Key: CORBA34-324
  • Legacy Issue Number: 2641
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: The description of firewall traversal in orbos/98-07-03 4.11 has some
    significant unstated assumptions, and prescribes an algorithm that has
    several flaws.

    In orbos/98-07-03 4.11 it says: "A client will determine if it needs
    to go through a firewall to make a request on the target object. If
    the client is in the same domain a direct invocation can be made. The
    client can determine this be examining the host address information in
    the target IOR." This assumes that the enclave structure maps to host
    addresses in some way known to all clients. This needs to be made more
    explicit.
