Subject Support certificate based authentication for karaf JAAS
Date Thu, 10 Jul 2014 14:52:32 GMT
We have the following issue in CXF:

What we want to achieve is to let a user authenticate against a 
webservice running in karaf using a client certificate.

We would like to leverage the karaf JAAS support to do the mapping from 
certificate to user and to lookup the roles.
I have described some ideas how to do this in the issue above.

Some would require to change the LDAPLoginModule to support a mode to 
just retrieve the groups and not do actual authentication (configurable).
Which could be an issue if someone uses it as a user/password login 
module and configures it incorrectly.

The other solutions have other issues.

So what solution would you choose?
Or should we alternatively keep this complete code out of karaf?
