SEC14 — Interfaces are specified using wrong datatype in CORBASEC

  • Key: SEC14-21
  • Legacy Issue Number: 2201
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: The CORBASecurity spec. uses three different datatypes for interfaces:


    InterfaceDef should definitely NOT be used, as it can"t be resolved without
    reference to the
    Interface Repository, which would be a big performance penalty for cases where
    the interface"s
    name is simply being matched or used as a lookup key in a local table.

    Identifier is also the wrong type; it"s a generic string type and hence not
    type-safe with respect
    to interface names.
