Hello Pascal,
currently, without further customizations, the only way to access resources
from external clients is by putting the valid OAUth2 access_token generated
by GeoNode into the OWS request URL parameters.

To retrieve this, you need to log into GeoNode, go to any layer details,
click on "Download Layer" and copy the "access_token" query parameter from
any of the generated query strings.

There are plans to make it more easy for the users to retrieve the
access_token from GeoNode in the future, but currently this is the only way
to do this.

> Hello,
> I have a use case where I need to securely access OGC services managed by
> GeoNode, Geoserver and GeoFence. Access is required outside Geonode portal
> into third party application: desktop, other spatial web portal, etc.
> Geonode is used as the gateway to manage all datasets. On setting the
> permissions on a given datasets the relevant permissions are being pushed
> to GeoFence via its rest API. By default a ground data rule is set by
> default in GeoFence that prevent accessing / viewing all datasets; which
> means that then datasets would only be visible based on permissions set in
> GeoNode.
> The above part makes sense as long as one browses the data only in
> GeoNode. However, as soon as one wants to access the OGC end points in say
> QGIS / ArcMAP (e.g. wms, wfs) available on http://mydomain/geoserver/
> geonode/wms, you are not anymore authenticated. I have already looked
> into basic authentication; but as far as I understand it, this approach
> requires recreating the Geonode user in GeoServer.
> What are the options then for a desktop / third party application’s user
> to access the secure OGC end-points managed through Geonode? Which
> Geoserver authentication filter one should use?
> Hope this makes sense. Any thoughts or pointer would be greatly
> appreciated.
