Subject [jira] [Commented] (AIRAVATA-657) Create a standalone client for BES
Date Tue, 16 Apr 2013 20:19:17 GMT


Shahbaz Memon commented on AIRAVATA-657:

Hi Suresh, 

> Can we integrate this with jglobus 2.0 key store style GSI proxies and trusted certificates?

I am not sure if it works with the unicore classes.

>  Also, can we remove dependencies to - de.fzj.unicore.* packages?

Most of them are client classes that initiate remote requests, and they are using

> We can eliminate lot of dependencies if we align these proxy generation (and key store
style authentication) with standard java security. 

1. Sorry I don't understand the proxy generation part, why would be unicore responsible for
proxy generation in general? 

2. If you meant "keystore = jks", then in the current unicore plugin for GFac we are not doing
any keystore style authentication. What happen is the credential (public / private keypair)
which is fetched from the myproxy server is in the PEM format and persisted through GSIContext*
 class. Unicore security classes are initiated through  credential stored in this same context,
and additionally the trusted certs.
