CloudStack Identity and Access Management

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Currently CloudStack provides very limited identity and access management (IAM) services with three major drawbacks. First, there is no way to create additional roles with customized permissions except those out-of-box account types with pre-baked access control. Second, some resource types like network, affinity group, project have hard-coded access control logic in the code. Third, we have to create specialized dedicated APIs to grant resource permission. In this presentation, Prachi and Min will discuss the IAM plugin currently under development using a standard IAM service architecture. This new IAM plugin will address above mentioned limitations and allow CloudStack to securely control access to resources for your users while accounting for their domain hierarchy. In addition, it also provides flexibility to integrate with other third-party IAM implementations.
