Optional Authentication/Entitlements Modules

In this release, AMPS includes optional modules that provide authentication and/or entitlement functionality:

  • The libamps_http_entitlement module makes requests to an external web service to validate authentication credentials and retrieve the set of applicable entitlements. With this module, you can provide both authentication and entitlement infrastructure.

  • The libamps_multi_authentication module supports multi-mechanism authentication. In this release, the module supports both LDAP and Kerberos. This module does not provide an entitlements implementation.

  • The libamps_simple_access_entitlement module restricts access to specific resources. This module is most often used to provide limited access to the AMPS Admin console. This module does not provide an authentication implementation, and does not consider individual user entitlements -- the restrictions applied by this module apply to all users.
