EnduraData password file format

edpasswd


NAME

edpasswd - EnduraData's File Replication Node Management Password File.

SYNOPSIS

EnduraData's Content Distribution Suites expects to find the edpasswd file by default in $ED_BASE_DIR/etc/edpasswd. You can also use the environment variable ED_SECRET to setup an alternative password filename.

SECURITY ISSUES

This is the first file that administrators must edit to change the password and the hosts allowed to configure the distribution network. This file must be read only by the owner. If the edpasswd file is missing, the system will not be managed. If you want to manage the system without a password at your own risk, do so by setting ED_SECRET environment variable to "*". Please note that the default setup is as follows:

localhost:*

This indicates that all requests from the localhost with any password will be processed. You can change this to restrict access as shown in the examples section.

FILE FORMAT

The edpasswd file is a one line file. The line has two parts separated by a colon ":". The first part is a regular expression of hosts allowed to manage the node, the second part is a clear text password.

FILE REPLICATION PASSWORD EXAMPLE1

This line indicates that host fred.enduradata.com can manage the data distribution suite using MyPassword as a password.

FILE REPLICATION PASSWORD EXAMPLE2

This line indicates any host from enduradata.com can manage the data distribution if they supply 12TikChbila42 as a password.

FILE REPLICATION PASSWORD EXAMPLE3

In this example any host from env.nsf.gov or from lter.umn.edu can manage the nodes without a password.

FILE REPLICATION PASSWORD EXAMPLE4

In this example any one from any host can manage the file replication and data distribution network without a password.

FILE REPLICATION PASSWORD EXAMPLE5

In this example any one from any host who supplies "opensemsem" password will manage the file replication and distribution network.
