Hasini Gunasinghe commented on AIRAVATA-1624:
---------------------------------------------

Hi Suresh,

No, the same design can support multi-tenancy. If the AIRAVATA API and the AIRAVATA client
are already multi-tenented, we can implement the Authorization Manager which fronts the AIRAVATA
API (Figure 1 in the attached document) with multi-tenancy support. WSO2 IS already supports
multi-tenancy.

Thanks & Best Regards,
Hasini.

> Apache Airavata uses Thrift based API's for external facing API's and for system internal
CPI's. The API's need to be secured adding authentication and authorization capabilities.

> The Authentication need to ensure only approved users/clients can communicate. Similarly
clients should only interact with valid servers. 
> Authorization need to be enforced to ensure only users with specific roles can appropriately
access specific API's. As an example, administrative roles should be able see all the users
experiments where as end users can only see his/her data and not access other information
(unless explicitly shared). 
> Earlier GSoC project focused on this topic has relavent discussion.
