Removal of IdP component from AAA


Robert Varga
 

Hello everyone,

as part of keeping OpenDaylight infrastructure secure and relevant, we
will be removing OAuth2 Identity Provider component from the AAA project.

There are three technical drivers behind this decision:

1) current implementation is based on Apache Oltu, which has been
terminated on March 21st, 2018 and moved to Attic:
https://attic.apache.org/projects/oltu.html

2) Oltu depends on org.json/json, which has a problematic license
(https://www.json.org/license.html)

3) we do not strive to be an IdP, as there are plenty solutions
available out there.

The details are in the tracker issue,
https://jira.opendaylight.org/browse/AAA-173, and in the removal patch,
https://git.opendaylight.org/gerrit/72022.

Should there be interest in having this functionality present, we will
gladly accept an alternative implementation, provided it comes with at
least a minimal commitment to support it.

Regards,
Robert
