Stein Series Release Notes

15.0.0-16

Bug Fixes

  • [bug 1773967] Fixes an issue where users who had role assignments only via a group membership and not via direct assignment could create but not use application credentials. It is important to note that federated users who only have role assignments via a mapped group membership still cannot create application credentials.
  • [bug 1782922] Fixed the problem where Keystone indiscriminately return the first RDN as the user ID, regardless whether it matches the configured ‘user_id_attribute’ or not. This will break deployments where ‘group_members_are_ids’ are set to False and ‘user_id_attribute’ is not in the DN. This patch will perform a lookup by DN if the first RND does not match the configured ‘user_id_attribute’.
  • [bug 1832265] Binary msgpack payload types are now consistently and correctly decoded when running Keystone under Python 3, avoiding any TypeErrors when attempting to convert binary encoded strings into UUID’s.
  • [bug 1840291] Adds retries for delete_credential_for_user method to avoid DBDeadlocks when deleting large number of credentials concurrently.
  • [bug 1843609 <https://bugs.launchpad.net/keystone/+bug/1843609>] Fixed an issue where system-scoped tokens couldn’t be used to list users and groups (e.g., GET /v3/users or GET /v3/groups) if keystone.conf [identity] domain_specific_drivers_enabled=True and the API would return an HTTP 401 Unauthorized. These APIs now recognize system-scoped tokens when using domain-specific drivers.

15.0.0

Prelude

This release leverages oslo.policy’s policy-in-code feature to modify the default check strings and scope types for nearly all of keystone’s API policies. These changes make the policies more precise than they were before, using the reader, member, and admin roles where previously only the admin role and a catch-all rule was available. The changes also take advantage of system, domain, and project scope, allowing you to create role assignments for your users that are appropriate to the actions they need to perform. Eventually this will allow you to set [oslo_policy]/enforce_scope=true in your keystone configuration, which simplifies access control management by ensuring that oslo.policy checks both the role and the scope on API requests. However, please be aware that not all policies have been converted in this release and some changes are still under development. During the transition phase, if you have not overridden a policy, the old default and the new default will be OR’d together. This means that, for example, where we have changed the policy rule from 'rule:admin_required' to 'role:reader and system_scope:all', both policy rules will be in effect. Please check your current policies and role assignments before upgrading to ensure the policies will not be too permissive for your deployment. To hide the deprecation warnings and opt into the less permissive rules, you can override the policy configuration to use the newer policy rule.

New Features

  • [bug 1669080] Added support for a description attribute for V3 Identity Roles, see API docs for details.
  • [blueprint json-web-tokens] Keystone now supports a JSON Web Signature (JWS) token provider in addition to fernet tokens. Fernet token remain the default token provider. Full details can be found in the specification.
  • [blueprint mfa-auth-receipt] Added support for auth receipts. Allows multi-step authentication for users with configured MFA Rules. Partial authentication with successful auth methods will return an auth receipt that can be consumed in subsequent auth attempts along with the missing auth methods to complete auth and be provided with a valid token.
  • [Community Goal] Support has been added for developers to write pre-upgrade checks. Operators can run these checks using keystone-status upgrade check. This allows operators to be more confident when upgrading their deployments by having a tool that automates programmable checks against the deployment configuration or dataset.
  • [bug 1748027] The user API now supports the admin, member, and reader default roles across system-scope, domain-scope, and project-scope.
  • [bug 1750660] The project API now supports the admin, member, and reader default roles across system-scope, domain-scope, and project-scope.
  • [bug 1805368] [bug 1750669] The system assignment API now supports the admin, member, and reader default roles across system-scope, domain-scope, and project-scope. The grant API now supports the admin, member, and reader default roles for system-scope.
  • [bug 1750673] The role assignment API now supports the admin, member, and reader default roles across system-scope, domain-scope, and project-scope.
  • [bug 1794376] The domain API now supports the admin, member, and reader default roles.
  • [bug 1801095] Request ID and global request ID have been added to both basic and CADF notifications.
  • [bug 1804446] The regions API now supports the admin, member, and reader default roles.
  • [bug 1804463] The services API now supports the admin, member, and reader default roles.
  • [bug 1804483] The endpoint API now supports the admin, member, and reader default roles.
  • [bug 1804516] The federated identity provider API now supports the admin, member, and reader default roles.
  • [bug 1804521] The federated mapping API now supports the admin, member, and reader default roles.
  • [bug 1804522] The federated service provider API now supports the admin, member, and reader default roles.
  • [bug 1804523] The federated protocol API now supports the admin, member, and reader default roles.
  • [bug 1805369] The group API now supports the admin, member, and reader default roles.
  • [bug 1808859] The group API now supports using the domain scope type for performing domain-specific actions on groups and group membership.
  • [bug 1805372] The registered limit and limit API now support the admin, member, and reader default roles.
  • [bug 1805402] The role API now supports the admin, member, and reader default roles.
  • [bug 1805403] The project API now supports the admin, member, and reader default roles.
  • [bug 1805406] The user API now supports the admin, member, and reader default roles.
  • [blueprint domain-level-limit] Keystone now supports domain level unified limit. When creating a limit, users can specify a domain_id instead of project_id. For flat model, the domain limit is still non-hierarchical. For strict-two-level model, the domain limit is now considered as the first level, so that the project limit is the second level and the project can’t contain any child.

Upgrade Notes

  • [blueprint mfa-auth-receipt] Auth receipts share the same fernet mechanism as tokens and by default will share keys with tokens and work out of the box. If your fernet key directory is not the default, you will need to also configure the receipt key directory, but they can both point to the same location allowing key rotations to affect both safely. It is possible to split receipt and token keys and run rotatations separately for both if needed.
  • [bug 1748027] The user API uses new default policies that make it more accessible to end users and administrators in a secure way. Please consider these new defaults if your deployment overrides user policies.
  • [bug 1750660] The project API uses new default policies that make it more accessible to end users and administrators in a secure way. Please consider these new defaults if your deployment overrides project policies.
  • [bug 1805368] [bug 1750669] The system assignment and grant APIs uses new default policies that make it more accessible to end users and administrators in a secure way. Please consider these new defaults if your deployment overrides system assignment policies.
  • [bug 1750673] The role assignment API uses new default policies that make it more accessible to end users and administrators in a secure way. Please consider these new policies if your deployment overrides role assignment policies.
  • [bug 1787874] Please note that the deployment which sets unique_last_password_count = 1 in the config file should update the value to 0 to keep the same behavior as before.
  • [bug 1788415] [bug 968696] Policies protecting the /v3/credentials API have changed defaults in order to make the credentials API more accessible for all users and not just operators or system administrator. Please consider these updates when using this version of keystone since it could affect API behavior in your deployment, especially if you’re using a customized policy file.
  • [bug 1794376] The domain API uses new default policies that make it more accessible to end users and administrators in a secure way. Please consider these new defaults if your deployment overrides domain policies.
  • [bug 1794864] [bug 1794376] The default policies that protect the domains API have been deprecated in favor of ones that are more secure and self-serviceable. If you’re maintaining custom policies, please make sure you resolve your domain policies to work with the new default by adding the proper role assignments, or continue maintaining custom overrides. The new defaults allow for better protection of the domains API when giving the admin role to users on domains and projects.
  • [bug 1804292] The region policies defined in policy.v3cloudsample.json have been removed. These policies are now obsolete after incorporating system-scope into the region API and implementing default roles.

    • identity:create_registered_limits
    • identity:update_registered_limit
    • identity:delete_registered_limit
    • identity:create_limits
    • identity:update_limit
    • identity:delete_limit

    These policies are not being formally deprecated because the unified limits API is still considered experimental. These new default automatically account for system-scope. Please consider these new defaults if your deployment overrides the registered limit or limit policies.

  • [bug 1805402] The role API uses new default policies that make it more accessible to end users and administrators in a secure way. Please consider these new defaults if your deployment overrides role policies.
  • [bug 1805403] The project API uses new default policies that make it more accessible to end users and administrators in a secure way. Please consider these new defaults if your deployment overrides project policies.

  • [bug 1806762] The domain policies defined in policy.v3cloudsample.json have been removed. These policies are now obsolete after incorporating system-scope into the domain API and implementing default roles. Additionally, the identity:get_domain policy in policy.v3cloudsample.json has been relaxed slightly to allow all users with role assignments on a domain to retrieve that domain, as opposed to only allowing users with the admin role to access that policy.

    All policies in policy.v3cloudsample.json that are redundant with the defaults in code have been removed. This improves maintainability and leaves the policy.v3cloudsample.json policy file with only overrides. These overrides will eventually be moved into code or new defaults in keystone directly. If you’re using the policies removed from policy.v3cloudsample.json please check to see if you can migrate to the new defaults or continue maintaining the policy as an override.

  • [bug 1806762] [bug 1804518] The protocol policies defined in the policy.v3cloudsample.json policy file have been removed. These policies are now obsolete after incorporating system-scope into the federated protocol API and implementing default roles.
  • The assignment driver interface has changed to use the named parameter ‘project_id’ instead of ‘tenant_id’.

Bug Fixes

  • [bug 1729933] The Region Update API now correctly updates extra values. Previously adding any extra values to a region via the update API would discard any added values besides the default ones. Any extra values are now correctly added and returned. This fix was for consistency with other APIs in keystone that use ‘extra’ and the use of ‘extra’ in keystone is highly discouraged.
  • [bug 1744195] The SQL Foreign Key is enabled for Keystone unit tests now. This is not an end user impact fixed. But for the downstream teams, please take care of it for your private test code changes.
  • [bug 1757151] More thorough documentation has been added for authorization and token scopes, which helps users and developers understand the purpose of scope and why it can be a useful tool for resource isolation and API protection.
  • [bug 1780503] The notification wrapper now sets the initiator’s id to the given user id. This fixes an issue where identity.authentication event would result in the initiator id being a random default UUID, rather than the user’s id when said user would authenticate against keystone.
  • [bug 1784536] Keystone now return 401 Unauthorized correctly when issuing a project-scoped token but the input project id is a domain id.
  • [bug 1787874] The default value of the config option unique_last_password_count is changed from 1 to 0. Now unique_last_password_count = 0 means password history check is disabled. unique_last_password_count = 1 means when changing password, the new one should be different than the current one.
  • [bug 1788415] [bug 968696] Improved self-service support has been implemented in the credential API. This means that end users have the ability to manage their own credentials as opposed to filing tickets to have deployment administrators manage credentials for users.
  • [bug 1788694] System-scoped tokens now support expanding role assignments to include implied roles in token creation and validation responses.
  • [bug 1789450] When a mapped group that does not exist in keystone is found, instead of throwing a 500 error, keystone will now log the instance and continue. This is expected behavior as an external IdP may specify a group that does not exist within keystone.
  • [bug 1792026] Formal documentation for user resource options has been added to the administrator guide and the API reference. This documentation helps describe how user options can improve user experience, namely for deployments looking to offer flexibility around PCI-DSS security requirements, among other things.
  • [bug 1794864] [bug 1794376] The default policies that protect the domains API have been deprecated in favor of ones that are more secure and self-serviceable. Users with roles on domains and projects are now able to call the GET /v3/domains/{domain_id} API if they use a token scoped to that domain or a token scoped to a project within that domain. System users are allowed to access the domain APIs in the same way legacy admin users were able to. This allows for better protection of the domain API when giving the admin role to users on domains and projects.
  • [bug 1796887] Add caching on trust role validation to improve performance. Services relying heavily on trusts are impacted as the trusts are validated against the database. This adds caching on those operations to improve performance
  • [bug 1801873] This fixes an issue where an LDAP-backed domain could not be deleted due to the existence of shadow users in the SQL database.
  • [bug 1804292] The region policies in policy.v3cloudsample.json policy file have been removed in favor of better defaults in code. These policies weren’t tested exhaustively and were misleading to users and operators.
  • [bug 1804462] The service policies in policy.v3cloudsample.json policy file have been removed in favor of better defaults in code. These policies weren’t tested exhaustively and were misleading to users and operators.
  • [bug 1804482] The endpoint policies in policy.v3cloudsample.json policy file have been removed in favor of better defaults in code. These policies weren’t tested exhaustively and were misleading to users and operators.
  • [bug 1804517] The federated identity provider policies in policy.v3cloudsample.json policy file have been removed in favor of better defaults in code. These policies weren’t tested exhaustively and were misleading to users and operators.
  • [bug 1804519] The federated mapping policies in policy.v3cloudsample.json policy file have been removed in favor of better defaults in code. These policies weren’t tested exhaustively and were misleading to users and operators.
  • [bug 1804520] The federated service provider policies in policy.v3cloudsample.json policy file have been removed in favor of better defaults in code. These policies weren’t tested exhaustively and were misleading to users and operators.
  • [bug 1805880] The registered limit policies in policy.v3cloudsample.json policy file have been removed in favor of better defaults in code. These policies weren’t tested exhaustively and were misleading to users and operators.
  • [bug 1806713] The role policies in policy.v3cloudsample.json policy file have been removed in favor of better defaults in code. These policies weren’t tested exhaustively and were misleading to users and operators.
  • [bug 1806762] The user policies in policy.v3cloudsample.json policy file have been removed in favor of better defaults in code. These policies weren’t tested exhaustively and were misleading to users and operators.
  • [bug 1804462] The group policies in policy.v3cloudsample.json policy file have been removed in favor of better defaults in code. These policies weren’t tested exhaustively and were misleading to users and operators.
  • [bug 1806762] The domain policies in policy.v3cloudsample.json policy file have been removed in favor of better defaults in code. These policies weren’t tested exhaustively and were misleading to users and operators.
  • [bug 1806762] [bug 1804518] The federated protocol policies in the policy.v3cloudsample.json policy file have been removed in favor of better defaults in code. These policies weren’t tested exhaustively and were misleading to users and operators.
  • [bug 1810393] Now when an identity provider protocol is deleted, the cache info for the related federated users will be invalidated as well.
  • [bug 1811605] Fixes X.509 tokenless auth by properly populating the request context with the necessary credential information. Since Stein release, RBAC has been using the credential information from the Keystone request context instead of the authentication context. Therefore, we’ll need to populate the request context with the necessary credential information from the X.509 tokenless authentication context.
  • [bug 1813085 <https://bugs.launchpad.net/keystone/+bug/1813085>] Validation of federated domain-scoped tokens scoped to the default domain no longer results in an HTTP 404 Domain Not Found due to byte string conversion issues with msgpack in python 3.
  • [bug 1814589] Fixes incorrect parameters passed into keystone.federation.utils.transform_to_group_ids() which resulted in HTTP 500 internal error.
  • [bug 1816927] It was discovered that the order in which fernet keys are distributed after fernet key rotation has impact on keystone service. All operators are advised to ensure that during fernet key distribution the new primary fernet key (with largest number) is distributed first.
  • [bug 1817313] Raise METHOD NOT ALLOWED for OS-Federation protocols creation if the protocol_id is not in the URL. The corrective action was to split the LIST from CRUD resources so that the routing regexes can work as expected.
  • [bug 1819036] Middleware that processes requests in front of keystone now caches tokens per request, eliminating unnecessary round trips to validate tokens on every request. This change doesn’t require the usage of any configuration options to take effect. The fix for this bug improved performance ~20% during testing and impacts most of keystone’s API.
  • [bug 1798184] [bug 1820333] In Python 3, python-ldap no longer allows bytes for some fields (DNs, RDNs, attribute names, queries). Instead, text values are represented as str, the Unicode text type. Compatibility support is provided for Python 2 by setting bytes_mode=False [1].

    The keystone LDAP backend is updated to adhere to this behavior by using bytes_mode=False for Python 2 and dropping UTF-8 encoding and decoding fields that are now represented as text in python-ldap.

    [1] More details about byte/str usage in python-ldap can be found at: http://www.python-ldap.org/en/latest/bytes_mode.html#bytes-mode

    Note that at a minimum python-ldappool 2.3.1 is required.

  • Some bugs for unified limit APIs have been fixed, it includes:

    • [bug 1798716] The region_id of registered limit now can be updated to None.
    • [bug 1798495] The length of unified limit’s resource_name now is limited from 1 to 255 (string).
    • [bug 1797876] The default_limit of registered limit and the resource_limit of limit now are limited from -1 to 2147483647 (integer). -1 means no limit. 2147483647 is the max value for integer by default in SQL (4 bytes).

Other Notes

  • [bug 1473292] If you’re relying on a custom implementation of the trust backend, please be sure to implement the new method prior to upgrading.
  • Keystone has been fully converted to run under flask. All of the APIs are now natively dispatched under flask.

    Included in this change is a removal of a legacy WSGI environment data holder calld openstack.params. The data holder was used exclusively for communicating data down the chain under paste-deploy. The data in openstack.params was generally “normalized” in an odd way and unreferenced in the rest of the openstack code-base.

    Some minor changes to the JSON Home document occured to make it consistent with the rest of our convensions (Technically an API contract break) but required for the more strict view the Keystone flask code takes on setting up the values for JSON Home. Notably “application_credentials” now has an appropriate entry for listing and creating new app creds.

    JSON Body and URL Normalizing middleware were move to a flask-native model.

    Any middleware defined in Keystone’s tree is no longer loaded via stevedore, and likewise the entry points were removed.

    Original WSGI Framework (custom, home-rolled, based on WEBOB) has been removed from the codebase.

  • [blueprint removed-as-of-stein] The options member_role_id and member_role_name which were deprecated in Queens and only used for V2 are removed now.
  • [blueprint removed-as-of-stein] The deprecated option crypt_strength is removed now. It was only useful for sha512_crypt password hashes which has been superseded by more secure hashing implementations.
  • [blueprint removed-as-of-stein] The keystone.conf [DEFAULT] secure_proxy_ssl_header configuration option was slated for removal in Pike and has now officially been removed. Please use oslo.middleware.http_proxy_to_wsgi instead.
  • [blueprint removed-as-of-stein] The interface create_arguments_apply in token formatter payload has been removed. The token payload now doesn’t need to be force ordered any more.
