ungleich-otp is a full blown authentication and authorisation service
made for micro services.
The basic idea is that every micro service has a (long term) triple
constisting of (name, realm, seed) and creates time based tokens.

This basically revamps Kerberos in a simple way into the web area.
ungleichotp has been created and is maintained by [ungleich](https://ungleich.ch/).

## Verifying a token using ungleichotpclient.py ##

Assuming you want to verify
(name=ipv6only, realm=ungleich-intern, token=498593) is a
valid triple and you do have credentials to access ungleich-otp
(name=info@ungleich.ch, realm=ungleich-admin, seed=PZKBPTHDGSLZBKIZ),
then the following call will verify the token:

```

UNGLEICHOTPNAME=info@ungleich.ch \
UNGLEICHOTPREALM=ungleich-admin \
UNGLEICHOTPSEED=PZKBPTHDGSLZBKIZ \
UNGLEICHOTPSERVER=http://localhost:8000/ungleichotp/verify/ \
python ungleichotpclient.py -n -r ungleich --token 498593
```

You can also veriy using a seed:
```

UNGLEICHOTPNAME=info@ungleich.ch \
UNGLEICHOTPREALM=ungleich-admin \
UNGLEICHOTPSEED=PZKBPTHDGSLZBKIZ \
UNGLEICHOTPSERVER=http://localhost:8000/ungleichotp/verify/ \
python ungleichotpclient.py -n -r ungleich --seed CEKXVG3235PO2HDW
```

The client requires pyotp.
## Server Setup instructions ##
This is a standard django project and thus can be easily setup using
```

## Realms ##
4 years ago
Access is granting/denied based on realms. There are two reserved
realms, all other realms can be used by the users:
4 years ago
### Reserved realms
Conceptually the realms "ungleich-admin" and "ungleich-auth" are
reserved for higher priviliged applications.
Usually there is only 1 entry in ungleich-admin that is used to
bootstrap and manage ungleich-otp.
All micro services that are trusted to authenticate another micro
service should have an entry in the ungleich-auth realm, which allows
them to verify a token of somebody else.
| Name | Capabilities |
|------------------+--------------------------------------------|
| ungleich-admin | authenticate, create, delete, list, update |
| ungleich-auth | authenticate |
| all other realms | NO ACCESS |

## Verify using http POST ##
4 years ago
Post a JSON object to the server at /ungleichotp/verify/ that
contains the following elements:
Request JSON object:
```
{
name: "your-name",
realm: "your-realm",
token: "current time based token",
verifyname: "name that wants to be authenticated",
verifyrealm: "realm that wants to be authenticated",
verifytoken: "token that wants to be authenticated",
}
```
Response JSON object:
Either HTTP 200 with
```
{
status: "OK",
}
```
OR return code 403:
* If token for authenticating is wrong, you get
```
{"detail":"Incorrect authentication credentials."}
```
* If token that is being verified is wrong, you get
```
{"detail":"You do not have permission to perform this action."}
```

## Authorize the request ##
From the ungleichotp-server, you get a validated information that a
name on a realm authenticated successfully. The associated permissions
("authorization") is application specific and needs to be decided by
your application.
## Limitations ##
* Name, Realm and seed are hard coded to 128 bytes length. This can be
changed, if necessary.
* Only python3 support for ungleichotp
