Subject [jira] [Created] (LIBCLOUD-625) GCE: When used on a GCE instance, auth should use metadata tokens

Eric Johnson created LIBCLOUD-625:
-------------------------------------

             Summary: GCE: When used on a GCE instance, auth should use metadata tokens
                 Key: LIBCLOUD-625
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LIBCLOUD-625
             Project: Libcloud
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Compute
         Environment: Google Compute Engine
            Reporter: Eric Johnson


Currently, the GCE driver only supports authorization from a perspective that code is executed
"outside" of the GCE environment. However, if code is executed on an instance running "inside"
GCE, it is possible to handle authorization with GCE's internal metadata service for an access
token.

When an instance is created with appropriate service account scopes, this access token can
be used to provide authorization to access the corresponding Google Cloud services.
