Description Standa Laznicka 2021-05-31 07:35:14 UTC
Description of problem:
We are now using the WebhookTokenAuthenticator auth stack for OpenShift authentication which means the kube-apiserver is reaching to the oauth-apiserver's TokenReview endpoint.

To avoid additional request from the oauth-apiserver to the kube-apiserver to validate the SA token, use client cert authenticaion.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Comment 2 Standa Laznicka 2021-06-07 14:33:44 UTC
needs one more slight improvement from lib-go

Comment 4 liyao 2021-06-11 14:20:13 UTC
Tested in cluster 4.8.0-0.nightly-2021-06-10-071057

1. check secret/webhook-authentication-integrated-oauth content is presented with cert/key form
$ oc extract secret/webhook-authentication-integrated-oauth -n openshift-config

2. save cert and key
echo 'client-certificate-data value' | base64 -d > cert
echo 'client-key-data value' | base64 -d > key

3. In terminal A:

cat > tokenreview_invalid.json << EOF
oc login -u testuser-41 -p <password>
TOKEN=`oc whoami -t`
cat > tokenreview_valid.json << EOF

4.In terminal B:

VALIDATION_POD=`oc get pod -n openshift-oauth-apiserver --no-headers | awk '{print $1}' | head -n 1` 
oc port-forward -n openshift-oauth-apiserver $VALIDATION_POD 8443:8443

5.In terminal A again, using the cert and key file saved in step2

curl -ksS -XPOST --cert ./cert --key ./key -H "Content-Type: application/json" https://localhost:8443/apis/oauth.openshift.io/v1/tokenreviews/ -d @tokenreview_valid.json
  "status": {
    "authenticated": true,

check and find above .status.authenticated is true, which is the expected value.
