While working on federated authentication for a different project (OpenDaylight) we discovered we needed to map from the assertion provided by an external federated IdP to local values. This is essentially the same requirement which exists in Keystone's federated support. It was hoped we could simply borrow the Keystone mapping implementation but it was found to be too limiting and not sufficiently expressive. We could not find another alternative so we designed a new mapper which is described in this PDF.
https://jdennis.fedorapeople.org/doc/mapping.pdf The mapper as described in the document has implementations in both Java and Python. The Java implementation is currently in use in OpenDaylight (a Java based project). For those interested I can provide a pointer to OpenDaylight specific documentation on how this mapper is used in conjunction with the Apache web server providing authentication and SSSD providing identity attributes to a Java servlet container. My goal here is to make Keystone developers aware of an alternative mapper which may provide needed mapping features not currently available and for which different language implementations already exist. Note, the mapper is easily extended should a need arise. Source code and documentation can be found here by cloning this git repo: git clone git://fedorapeople.org/~jdennis/federated-mapping.git Note, I put this git repo together quickly by pulling together things from a variety of sources, as such there may be things needing to be cleaned up in the repo, at the moment it's really just meant to browse. Over the next few days I'll make sure everything builds and executes cleanly. Posting this now in case folks want to have conversations at the Paris Summit. -- John _______________________________________________ OpenStack-dev mailing list OpenStackfirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-dev
