PyAMS security management package

Project description

What is PyAMS?

PyAMS (Pyramid Application Management Suite) is a small suite of packages written for applications and content management with the Pyramid framework.

PyAMS is actually mainly used to manage web sites through content management applications (CMS, see PyAMS_content package), but many features are generic and can be used inside any kind of web application.

All PyAMS documentation is available on ReadTheDocs; source code is available on Gitlab.

What is PyAMS_security?

PyAMS_security is a core extension package for PyAMS which provides all main security-related features; the package provides a custom authentication policy which is based on a custom “security manager”. This utility is a pluggable tool which is handling system users, local users and groups, as well as OAuth authentication; external packages can also provide authentication based on an LDAP directory.

PyAMS_security also provides utilities to extract credentials from queries, like HTTP basic authentication or JWT tokens, and can also provide your own credentials extraction mechanisms.

Finally, PyAMS_security provides roles management, as well as custom schema fields to store roles assigned to principals.
