Security services

Security services

A security service stores client configuration information used for authentication and authorization (AuthN/AuthZ). For example, a share server will be the client for an existing service such as LDAP, Kerberos, or Microsoft Active Directory.

You can associate a share with one to three security service types:

  • ldap: LDAP.

  • kerberos: Kerberos.

  • active_directory: Microsoft Active Directory.

You can configure a security service with these options:

  • A DNS IP address.

  • An IP address or host name.

  • A domain.

  • A user or group name.

  • The password for the user, if you specify a user name.

You can add the security service to the share network.

To create a security service, specify the security service type, a description of a security service, DNS IP address used inside project’s network, security service IP address or host name, domain, security service user or group used by project, and a password for the user. The share name is optional.

Create a ldap security service:

$ manila security-service-create ldap --dns-ip 8.8.8.8 --server 10.254.0.3 --name my_ldap_security_service

To create kerberos security service, run:

$ manila security-service-create kerberos --server 10.254.0.3 --user demo --password secret --name my_kerberos_security_service --description "Kerberos security service"

To see the list of created security service use manila security-service-list:

$ manila security-service-list
+--------------------------------------+------------------------------+--------+----------+
| id                                   | name                         | status | type     |
+--------------------------------------+------------------------------+--------+----------+

+--------------------------------------+------------------------------+--------+----------+

You can add a security service to the existing share network, which is not yet used (a share network not associated with a share).

Add a security service to the share network with share-network-security-service-add specifying share network and security service. The command returns information about the security service. You can see view new attributes and share_networks using the associated share network ID.

$ manila share-network-security-service-add share_net2 my_ldap_security_service

$ manila security-service-show my_ldap_security_service

It is possible to see the list of security services associated with a given share network. List security services for share_net2 share network with:

$ manila share-network-security-service-list share_net2
+--------------------------------------+--------------------------+--------+------+
| id                                   | name                     | status | type |

+--------------------------------------+--------------------------+--------+------+

You also can dissociate a security service from the share network and confirm that the security service now has an empty list of share networks:

$ manila share-network-security-service-remove share_net2 my_ldap_security_service

$ manila security-service-show my_ldap_security_service

The Shared File Systems service allows you to update a security service field using manila security-service-update command with optional arguments such as --dns-ip, --server, --domain, --user, --password, --name, or --description.

To remove a security service not associated with any share networks run:

$ manila security-service-delete my_ldap_security_service
