Upstream Authorization Driver for OpenDaylight

Description

OPNFV integrates both OpenStack and SDN controllers like OpenDaylight. The Moon project proposes a security management module to project the whole infrastructure in this Context. In our previous work, an authentication driver has been developed and upstreamed to OpenDaylight which enables the identity federation for OPNFV (between OpenStack and OpenDaylight).
In the roadmap of Moon, a second driver for authorization federation should also be developed and upstreamed to OpenDaylight. The main idea is to delegate OpenDaylight’s authorization to OPNFV/Moon where a set of security policies will be defined.
Additional Information:
This internship will collaboration between the OPNFV/Moon project and OpenDaylight/AAA project. We hope that the new driver will be integrated to the next official release of OpenDaylight. Additional aspects like AD-SAL and token federation in OpenDaylight should also be taken into account.

Web Portal for OPNFV Test API

Descriptions

TestAPI is used by all the test projects to report results. It is also used to declare projects, test cases and labs. It is defined in Functest developer guide. Currently, TestAPI auto documentation, auto deployment, auto backup are already done. Now it is the time for showing test results more human-oriented, which is leveraging Web Portal.
The internship aims to add web portal for TestAPI. The showcase user got through web portal, will be more human-friendly compared to swagger page. And it is a full-stack task, including both frontend(web) and backend(server) development.
And because authentication and authorization is about to be added in TestAPI, pushing results will become complex, including several steps. So TestAPI plan to provide a testapi-client to facilitate the user pushing results. And it is also included in the internship scope
