Subject Re: [Discussion] Security improvements
Date Mon, 30 Jan 2012 15:08:58 GMT
My goal is to provide fine grained access control. Not only a read or write access but also
domain specific, just imagine that you have a production installation and developers have
read only access to Apache Camel metrics, JMS Queues and OSGi bundles but also have write
access to configuration.

These changes will let you to create real profiles. Currently we do not have hierarchical
roles which makes management of accounts harder. All changes I made in webconsole is to let
you create an hierarchy where dash is level separator.

With these changes we might have something like that:
+ root
    + osgi
        - list
        - install
    + karaf
        + admin
            - list / stop / start / create / destroy
        + feature
            - list / stop / start / install / uninstall
    + camel
        + context
            - list / start / stop etc. (whole path is camel-context-list)
        + route (same operations like for context)

With this separation you might assign a whole node (osgi) or only leaf (osgi-list). I think
that limiting access rights only to two - read and write for container is really too little.
We do not provide access profiles, but we might consider that. Although I am sure this can
be done separately after introduction of fine grained roles.

Best regards,
Łukasz Dywicki

you wish assign all karaf related roles you need karaf role. To manage instances you need
karaf-admin role (karaf-admin-list to view instances, karaf-admin-stop to stop etc), or karaf-feature
(and similar karaf-feature-list, stop, start). Does it seems reasonable? Maybe we can align
these roles with 3.0 command naming schema?
