[GeoNode-users] GNIP: GeoServer A&A Improvements

Dear all,

I created two branches on GeoNode fork with a first implementation of
Advanced Authentication & Authorization between GeoNode and GeoServer.

Basically with those improvements the A&A communication system between
GeoNode and GeoServer has been improved in order to keep the two frameworks
more independent and avoid using the cookies which may cause issues

Other than this, we introduced the GeoFence[1] plugin into GeoServer which
provides more granular control of the data access rules.

How to test the stuff:

1. Clone the branch "GN_ADVANCED_SECURITY" of GeoNode

2. Get the GeoServer-GeoNode extension for GN_ADVANCED_SECURITY

    You can either
     - Clone the branch "GN_ADVANCED_SECURITY" of GeoServer-GeoNode-ext


     - Download the WAR and GeoServer Data Dir from

3. Compile the documentation locally with sphinx[2]

    cd <geonode_GN_ADVANCED_SECURITY>/docs
    make html

4. Refer to the documentation and follow the guide


    and go to

     "Docs » Tutorials » Administrators Workshop » GeoNode and GeoServer
Advanced Security"


Please notice that this is still a work in progress and it is not yet

Any feedback and comment is much appreciated.

Best Regards,
Alessio Fabiani.
