A secure and efficient authentication technique to access cloud services in Openstack
Raghavendra K, Ramesh B
Nowadays cloud services have gained more interest. The main advantage of the cloud is, it reduces management costs and efficient usage of resources. The major role of efficient authentication means not only providing authentication for a single service in a cloud environment it should provide AAA in a federated identity management environment also, called as single sign-on(SSO). There are many authentication mechanisms most of them were only for a web application. Here in this paper, we focus on both web and non-web applications for efficient AAA in a cloud environment. For non-web application services of cloud, ABFAB has created an architecture for federated identity management environment. ABFAB also defines how to use existing EAP/AAA and GSS-EAP for both web and non-web-based applications. In this paper, we mainly focus on efficient AAA to access cloud services. To demonstrate the proposed system, we use the moonshot from Github, freeradius an opensource, and Openstack for cloud service with our proposed authentication method. We have done the performance analysis of our authentication method compared with the other authentication mechanism to access cloud services. This analysis shows a significant reduction in the computation time required for authentication and authentication traffic.
