[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v4 07/10] qemu-nbd: add support for ACLs for TLS cli

From: Daniel P. Berrange
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v4 07/10] qemu-nbd: add support for ACLs for TLS clients
Date: Wed, 11 May 2016 14:15:30 +0100

Currently any client which can complete the TLS handshake
is able to use the NBD server. The server admin can turn
on the 'verify-peer' option for the x509 creds to require
the client to provide a x509 certificate. This means the
client will have to acquire a certificate from the CA before
they are permitted to use the NBD server. This is still a
fairly weak bar.

This adds a '--tls-acl ACL-ID' option to the qemu-nbd command
which takes the ID of a previously added 'QAuthZ' object
instance. This ACL will be used to validate the client's
x509 distinguished name. Clients failing the ACL will not be
permitted to use the NBD server.

For example to setup an ACL that only allows connection from
a client whose x509 certificate distinguished name contains
'CN=fred', you would use:

  qemu-nbd -object tls-creds-x509,id=tls0,dir=/home/berrange/qemutls,\
                   endpoint=server,verify-peer=yes \
           -object authz-simple,id=acl0,policy=deny,\
                   rules.0.match=*CN=fred,rules.0.policy=allow \
           -tls-creds tls0 \
           -tls-acl acl0
           ....other qemu-nbd args...
