[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v2 0/3] Use QCryptoSecret for block device passwords

From: Daniel P. Berrange
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v2 0/3] Use QCryptoSecret for block device passwords
Date: Mon, 21 Dec 2015 14:59:23 +0000

The RBD, Curl and iSCSI block device drivers all need the ability
to accept a password to authenticate with the remote network storage
server. Currently RBD and iSCSI both just take the password in clear
text as part of the block parameters which is insecure (passwords are
visible in the process listing), while Curl doesn't support auth at

This series updates all three drivers so that they use the recently
merged QCryptoSecret API for getting passwords. Each driver gains
a 'passwordid' property that can be set to provide the ID of a
QCryptoSecret object instance, which in turn provides the actual
password data.

These patches were previously sent as part of a larger series:


The QCryptoSecret object support was already merged, and the additions
to qemu-img/qemu-io/qemu-nbd I'll submit separately since there is no
strict dependancy between those additions and these patches.

Daniel P. Berrange (3):
  rbd: add support for getting password from QCryptoSecret object
  curl: add support for HTTP authentication parameters
  iscsi: add support for getting CHAP password via QCryptoSecret API
