Subject [jira] [Commented] (AIRAVATA-1624) [GSoC] Securing Airavata API
Date Fri, 05 Jun 2015 13:03:00 GMT


Hasini Gunasinghe commented on AIRAVATA-1624:

Hi Supun,

I am planning to properly document the steps to follow when developing a clients to access
secured Airavata API. Until then, you can refer the steps of running the sample at [1] and
the source code of secure client sample [2] to get an idea. I do not have developed OAuth
clients in PHP before, so I can not recommend you any libraries to use at the moment. You
will also need to generate PHP client stubs for WSO2 IS admin services. Please feel free to
ask if you get any specific questions during the development.

> 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.
