Rutabaga Documentation

Rutabaga is comprised of a Cornice REST API and Squid addon helper, providing time limited tokens for squid basic authentication to consuming services.

Tokens can be manually revoked, or in a typical deployment scenario, revoked from a cron job. This is particularly useful in scenarios where consuming services may be running untrusted code but require restricted internet access for a particular process e.g. fetching a data payload, or software dependencies.

Squid Addon Helper

Rutabaga’s squid helper conforms to the squid addon helper basic auth protocol.
