Description Kurt Seifried 2013-01-30 23:31:44 EST
Thierry Carrez (thierry@openstack.org) of the OpenStack Project reports:

Title: Keystone denial of service through invalid token requests
Reporter: Dan Prince (Red Hat)
Products: Keystone
Affects: All versions

Dan Prince of Red Hat reported a vulnerability in token creation error
handling in Keystone. By requesting lots of invalid tokens, an
unauthenticated user may fill up logs on Keystone API servers disks,
potentially resulting in a denial of service attack against Keystone.

Proposed patches:
See attached patches for current development tree (Grizzly) and the
Folsom and Essex series. Unless a flaw is discovered in them, these
proposed patches will be merged to Keystone master, stable/folsom and
stable/essex branches on the public disclosure date.
