Subject [jira] [Commented] (AIRAVATA-1624) [GSoC] Securing Airavata API
Date Sat, 07 Mar 2015 23:02:38 GMT


Suresh Marru commented on AIRAVATA-1624:

Hi Hasini,

Thank you for these details. Yes the scenario 4 approach you say makes sense. I fully feel
comfortable with what you are proposing, I still have some implementation questions, but as
such the design seem to cater to what Airavata needs now. Your WSO2IS internal working knowledge
should greatly help with this effort.

Please proceed to prepare your GSoC applications. The final destination of this should be
in the google melenge system. But we also prefer to have you publicly copy on Airavata Wiki.
Since the applications do not open for a week, you can start on the wiki -
(this is just a template, you can modify it as you like).

All the best with your project,

> Apache Airavata uses Thrift based API's for external facing API's and for system internal
CPI's. The API's need to be secured adding authentication and authorization capabilities.

> The Authentication need to ensure only approved users/clients can communicate. Similarly
clients should only interact with valid servers. 
> Authorization need to be enforced to ensure only users with specific roles can appropriately
access specific API's. As an example, administrative roles should be able see all the users
experiments where as end users can only see his/her data and not access other information
(unless explicitly shared). 
> Earlier GSoC project focused on this topic has relavent discussion.
