An Auth Service for Swift as WSGI Middleware that uses Swift itself as a backing store. Sphinx-built docs at: http://gholt.github.com/swauth/ Source available at: https://github.com/gholt/swauth

See also https://github.com/khussein/keystone for the future standard OpenStack auth service.

This is currently a work in progress of pulling Swauth out of the Swift repo and here into its own project. See https://code.launchpad.net/~gholt/swift/deswauth/+merge/62392 for the Swift side of things.

Quick Install

  1. Install Swauth with sudo python setup.py install or sudo python setup.py develop or via whatever packaging system you may be using.

  2. Alter your proxy-server.conf pipeline to have swauth instead of tempauth:


    pipeline = catch_errors cache tempauth proxy-server

    Change To:

    pipeline = catch_errors cache swauth proxy-server
  3. Add to your proxy-server.conf the section for the Swauth WSGI filter:

    use = egg:swauth#swauth
    set log_name = swauth
    super_admin_key = swauthkey
  4. Restart your proxy server swift-init proxy reload.

  5. Initialize the Swauth backing store in Swift swauth-prep -K swauthkey.

  6. Add an account/user swauth-add-user -A -K swauthkey -a test tester testing.

  7. Ensure it works st -A -U test:tester -K testing stat -v.
