Kinetic Core Security Configuration

Summary

Kinetic Core has a strategy for configuring authentication providers. Please visit each strategies' page for more details.

Shared Space Security Configuration

The space security file, e.g. security.acme.properties has two configurable parameters. Not all providers will respect this parameters, you will have to inspect them individually.

  • security.autoupdate - if provider supported, the provider will update the local user record from then authentication source.
  • security.autocreate - if provider supported, the provider will automatically create a local user record from the authentication source.

Upgrading from 1.0.3 to 1.0.4

Upgrading your security.properties and security.SPACESLUG.properties files between 1.0.3 and 1.0.4 is fairly simple. We eliminated the concept of Security Filters and Security Providers. For all authentication techniques you will enable a Security Strategy in the security.properties. This replaced the filters declaration that was previously here. In 1.0.3 only one provider needed a filter - all strategies need to register a strategy. In your space-scoped security file you will eliminate the list of Security Providers and instead "enable" the strategy for the space by using security.STRATEGY.enabled=true.

  1. Remove security.filters entries from security.properties
  2. Add security.strategy entries for each of your enabled authentication strategies.
  3. Remove security.provider entries from security.SPACESLUG.properties
  4. For each enabled strategy add security.STRATEGY.enabled=true.

Please refer to the example files for details on available configuration parameters.
