Red Hat Storage New Feature Submission Template

Feature Title: Support for authentication methods beyond tempauth for Swift

Feature Description: Our current Swift implementation is limited to tempauth which stores passwords in a flat file.  This is not ideal.  Customers have requested that other authentication methods such as integration with LDAP be added

Customer(s) Asking for the feature: Catalyst was one.  This has come up in other discussions as well.

Customer(s) contacts re: requests for future feature clarification  Brian Ford

Use-cases that this feature solves or helps in solving: Anyone who wants to use Swift and needs better authentication security than flat files.

Dependencies on other features & capabilities: **Optional

Potential Revenue Impact: None currently.

Risks (if any) if we don't implement:** Optional

Time Frame (when is this needed):** Required

RHS 2.1 Swift support will have support for Keystone through normal openstack api's and kerberos through Fed-c https://forge.gluster.org/swiftkerbauth project.
Comment 3 Luis Pabón 2013-07-16 21:00:32 EDT
RHS 2.0 UFO Bugs are being set to low priority.
Comment 4 Prashanth Pai 2014-02-05 10:54:59 EST
gluster-swift can work with the following in Corbett:
- tempauth
- gswauth
- keystone (can have ldap integration)
Comment 5 crisbud@redhat.com 2014-03-25 04:53:06 EDT
Later releases would have SwiftKerbAuth with gluster-swift.
Comment 6 crisbud@redhat.com 2014-03-25 05:00:15 EDT
Post Corbett will have SwiftKerbAuth code changes : 




Are merged to master (icehouse) gluster-swift project.
Comment 7 Prashanth Pai 2016-02-17 04:42:50 EST
RHGS works with:
* tempauth
* gswauth
* keystone

swiftkerbauth project is defunct and not maintained. LDAP integration can be achieved via keystone.
