    Simple HTTP Authentication Filter

    HTTP authentication filter for Clyde API gateway, which allows to authenticate users both using basic and digest strategies.

    Implementation is based on on passport-http module.

    Installation

    npm install clydeio-simple-http-auth --save

    Configuration

    Filter accepts the configuration properties:

    • realm: A string that identifies the authentication realm.
    • method: Indicates the authenticated method to be used. It is a required property. Allowed values are basic and digest.
    • consumers: An object with the list of user properties and password values.

    Examples

    Configured as global prefilter

    All requests are authenticated using basic auth:

    {
      "prefilters" : [
        {
          "id" : "basic-auth",
          "path" : "clydeio-simple-http-auth",
          "config" : {
            "realm" : "clyde",
            "method" : "basic",
            "consumers" : {
              "userA" : "passwordA",
              ...
            }
          }
        }
        ...
      ]
    }

    Configured as provider prefilter

    Only the requests addresses to the provider are authenticated with digest method:

    {
      "providers" : [
        {
          "id" : "some_provider",
          "context" : "/some_provider",
          "target" : "http://some_server",
          "prefilters" : [
            {
              "id" : "digest-auth",
              "path" : "clydeio-simple-http-auth",
              "config" : {
                "realm" : "clyde",
                "method" : "digest",
                "consumers" : {
                  "userA" : "passwordA",
                  ...
                }
              }
            }
        },
        ...
      ]
    }

    Notes

    • It has no sense configure an authentication filter as a global or provider's postfilter.
