Configuration for basic authentication

The basicAuth key is used to store user credentials that will be used with Basic Authentication and how the passwords are stored in memory.

/**
 * --------------------------------------------------------------------------
 * Basic Auth
 * --------------------------------------------------------------------------
 * These settings are used so you can configure the hashing patterns of the user storage
 * included with cbsecurity.  These are only used if you are using the `BasicAuthUserService` as
 * your service of choice alongside the `BasicAuthValidator`
 */
basicAuth : {
	// Hashing algorithm to use
	hashAlgorithm  : "SHA-512",
	// Iterates the number of times the hash is computed to create a more computationally intensive hash.
	hashIterations : 5,
	// User storage: The `key` is the username. The value is the user credentials that can include
	// { roles: "", permissions : "", firstName : "", lastName : "", password : "" }
	users          : {}
}

HashAlgorithm

This is the default algorithm used when hashing the user storage passwords in memory. The default is SHA-512

hashAlgorithm  : "SHA-256",

HashIterations

Iterates the number of times the hash is computed to create a more computationally intensive hash. The default is 5

hashIterations  : 10,

Users

This is the in-memory user storage system. It's a struct and each key represents a unique username in the storage system. Each user can then have the following attributes, but in reality, you can add as many attributes as you want.

  • password - The only mandatory attribute.

  • firstName

  • lastName

  • roles

  • permissions

users : {
    "lmajano" : { password : "test", permissions : "read,write",
    "guest" : { password : "guest", permissions : "read" }
}
