Design Review summary

This summary concludes the design review phase of XCI-419 work.

The reviewers noted one concern about the APIKeys in a sqlite database will be backed up. After further consideration with XDCDB group this design choice was altered and agreed upon to store this information in the XDCDB database, which is already well managed and backed up.  Other consideration was to identify an automated method to securely issue APIKeys to the Gateways, after discussion and review of choices, XSEDE's Kerberos  authentication will be used to validate users to issue APIKeys. Finally, a usage attribute was deemed necessary for inclusion to support Jetstream which does not provide granular usage like batch systems.

Overall, the design review was favorable and we are into the implementation phase.
