REVIEW-89: XCI-496 XSEDE OAuth-SSH for Open OnDemand Design - Design/Security Review


Design and security review of an Open OnDemand module and SSH service that facilitates use of XSEDE compute resources through Open OnDemand. This is a prototype design, intended to demonstrate a path forward, but with notable constraints. Specifically, the scope is limited to the Open OnDemand context: this design does not currently support other SSH clients.

Review Input Documents

Review Criteria

  • Does the proposed design satisfy all XSEDE security service guidelines and standards
  • Does the proposed design provide the required user functionality in the most straightforward way possible
  • Does the proposed design interact with other IAM services in the most appropriate way
  • Can the proposed design be implemented in Open OnDemand
  • Suggestions for how the prototype design could be made better for production use: more interoperable, flexible, robust, maintainable, fewer constraints, etc.
