keystone vulnerability

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

  • Ubuntu 16.04 LTS


OpenStack Keystone would allow unintended access over the network.

Software Description

  • keystone - OpenStack identity service


Boris Bobrov discovered that OpenStack Keystone incorrectly handled federation mapping when there are rules in which group-based assignments are not used. A remote authenticated user may receive all the roles assigned to a project regardless of the federation mapping, contrary to expectations.
