Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-1724) Improve the user and security model
Date Wed, 27 Mar 2013 16:11:18 GMT
Dave Cottlehuber created COUCHDB-1724:

             Summary: Improve the user and security model
                 Key: COUCHDB-1724
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Dave Cottlehuber

* Support distributed identity systems such as OpenID
* Allow for easier external authentication
* Finer grained authorization (instead of the binary _admin or not)
* Instead of exposing /_users as a database, design an API to cover
all expected operations instead.

Fine-grained authorization would allow the ability grant read and write
access independently, among other things. Specifically it should be possible
to grant the ability to write but not read.
