keyfile as resources

Reported by Bruno Bonfils | February 21st, 2011 @ 10:59 AM

I think using a global application ssh identity file may be restrictive in some conditions. I'm thinking about the following use cases:

a XML file (keys.xml) like

<key name="group1">

with a special named default for the default key.

This way, it wil very easy to manage differents keys for a node by adding keyName attribute in a node definition, and if this attribut doesn't exists, the default key will be use.

    Perhaps we can make this more generic as well, allowing for some kind of credential definition independent of ssh.

    e.g. defining some xml/yaml files as project/X/etc/something.cred allows you to specify:

    <node name="mynode" credentialset="something/key1" .../>

    and something.cred:

    <credential name="key1">
       <ssh-keyfile file="$HOME/.ssh/mysecretkey"/>

    It is then up to the dispatcher to supply the correct credential definition to the SSH node executor.

    An alternative that could apply just to SSH would be to define a particular known key path, and then allow the node attributes to specify a key file by name:

    <node name="mynode" sshkeyfile="keyfile1".../>

    and have $RDECK_BASE/projects/X/etc/credentials/ be the known "keyfile path", so the keyfile1 resolves to $RDECK_BASE/projects/X/etc/credentials/keyfile1.key

    • Milestone cleared.
    • Milestone order changed from “12” to “0”

    Postponing until after 1.3 release to get feedback and see usage of dispatcher plugin and custom node attributes.
