Dave Cottlehuber created COUCHDB-1724:
-----------------------------------------

             Summary: Improve the user and security model
                 Key: COUCHDB-1724
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/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.
