Simple blue/green model
View blue-green.rb
# Simple script which creates two groups, blue and green. Each
# group contains a couple of users. The groups have different permissions
# on 'webservice' resources. In an SDF gatekeeper scenario, the 'blue'
# team will be able to 'read' service a, and the 'green' team will be
# able to 'read' service b. Neither team can perform any action besides 'read'.
# The owner of the 'webservice' resources (which is the user that runs this script)
# has all permissions on all records, via Conjur ownership.
# Create the blue team

Conjur Traffic Auth for the Truly Paranoid


Create distinct roles with specific permissions to call untrusted web services.

Client services authenticate as one of these roles when calling an untrusted web service.


When using an externalized (Nginx) forwarder and gatekeeper, a webservice client can send a Conjur access token for its own identity. The client doesn't have to worry about the gatekeeper misusing the access token,

You can’t perform that action at this time.
