UAA, as a core component of Cloud Foundry, is responsible for authenticating and authorizing requests between platform users (e.g. those that push apps) and platform components (e.g. the cloud controller). But when it came to doing auth for the apps you push and the end users of those apps, using the built-in UAA wasn’t the best fit, and you could easily end up shooting yourself in the foot. Until now. This talk will guide you though UAA’s new multi-tenancy features, and show you how to use the built-in UAA to create arbitrary authorization scenarios for your products without the danger of affecting the security of the core platform. With this level of freedom, you’ll have complete and fine-grained control over who is allowed to access your product’s components, and how those components are allowed to interact with one another.
