Subject Re: Qonduit - secure web socket proxy for Accumulo
Date Wed, 22 Feb 2017 19:07:52 GMT
There is a WebSocketClientIT test in the test module to test access using the Java client.
I have implemented operations that get the Qonduit server version and an operation to run
an Accumulo Scanner. Both of these implementation are in the operations modules. An example
of creating/using a web socket from a web page exists in the Timely codebase[1]. For doing
this with Qonduit, the request and response objects need to be encoded/decoded with a CBOR
library (for which there are several).

Regarding security, authentication is performed on the server side using whatever pluggable
modules are configured (basic auth, x509, etc). The transport is encrypted from the browser
to the Qonduit server using SSL (HTTPS / WSS).
