Imports

This is a SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol) interface to OpenStack Object Storage, providing a service that acts as a proxy between a SFTP client and a storage service.

The username/password pair used to open the SFTP session is validated using the authentication service of the files/storage service to get an authentication token.

The communication between the client and the SFTP daemon is encrypted all the time, and the SFTP service supports HTTPS communication with the remote files/storage service.

Install

Requirements:

  • python (2.6)
  • paramiko (1.7.6+; 1.10.1 recommended)
  • python-swiftclient (1.2+)
  • python-daemon (1.5.5)
  • ftp-cloudfs (0.23+)
  • python-memcached (1.45)

These are the minimum recommended versions based in our testing environment.

You may need to create a host key with ssh-keygen.

To install the software, run following command:

python setup.py install

Or using pip:

pip install sftp-cloudfs

Please use the latest pip version, old versions may have bugs. You can upgrade pip using pip: pip install --upgrade pip.

Usage

Once installed you can run the service with sftpcloudfs executable, that supports following options:

--version show program's version number and exit
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-a AUTHURL, --auth-url=AUTHURL
 Authentication URL
-k HOST_KEY, --host-key-file=HOST_KEY
 Host RSA key used by the server
-b BIND_ADDRESS, --bind-address=BIND_ADDRESS
 Address to bind (default: 127.0.0.1)
-p PORT, --port=PORT
 Port to bind (default: 8022)
--memcache=MEMCACHE
 Memcache server(s) to be used for cache (ip:port)
-l LOG_FILE, --log-file=LOG_FILE
 Log into provided file
-f, --foreground
 Run in the foreground (don't detach from terminal)
--syslog Enable logging to system logger (daemon facility)
-v, --verbose Show detailed information on logging
--pid-file=PID_FILE
 Pid file location when in daemon mode
--uid=UID UID to drop the privileges to when in daemon mode
--gid=GID GID to drop the privileges to when in daemon mode
--keystone-auth
 Use auth 2.0 (Keystone, requires keystoneclient)
--keystone-region-name=REGION_NAME
 Region name to be used in auth 2.0
--keystone-tenant-separator=TENANT_SEPARATOR
 Character used to separate tenant_name/username in auth 2.0, default: TENANT.USERNAME
--keystone-service-type=SERVICE_TYPE
 Service type to be used in auth 2.0, default: object- store
--keystone-endpoint-type=ENDPOINT_TYPE
 Endpoint type to be used in auth 2.0, default: publicURL
--config=CONFIG
 Use an alternative configuration file

The default location for the configuration file is /etc/sftpcloudfs.conf.

Memcache is optional but highly recommended for better performance.

By default Swift auth 1.0 will be used, and is compatible with OpenStack Object Storage (Swift) using swauth authentication middleware.

Optionally OpenStack Identity Service 2.0 (aka keystone) can be used. Currently python-keystoneclient is required to use auth 2.0 and it can be enabled with --keystone-auth option. Please check the example configuration file for further details.
