Hi all.

Any updates here?

OPA can be used in companies that uses many services like k8s, Ceph,... and want to have one central point for authorizing users so they can maintenance their access for each user on each service for example and etc. It’s just a use case and so it’s really good to have it. I think this is the biggest use case for having OPA in products that gets an option to centralize authorizing for all types of services. 

Performance for this model is issue like having keystone with Ceph. So I think it’s based on users that active this integrations at all.

The model for writing policies to radosgw isn’t really good I think because of the reason above if this accrued there is always two copies of policies and it doesn’t sounds good for maintaining.

If bucket policy disable, s3 clients like boto3 and etc will not work for setting polices but I think when someone is enabling OPA for authorizing it will also have an API for his/her OPA server to set/del policies and they can call these APIs to set/del policies.
And for extensions like PublicAccessBlock, it will disable because OPA is just authorizing requests and Ceph doesn’t authorize any request when OPA integration is enabled so OPA should handle any incoming policies were made by S3 policies. So it doesn’t make conflicts and if OPA integration is enabled it won’t work as we return 405 on each set/del policies requests and if OPA is disabled users can use this policies.

I am a big fan of the IAM policy documents, both because of the
flexibility and expressiveness they provide, and because they're in a
format that all of our s3 clients understand.

I'm not familiar enough with OPA to know what extra capabilities it
offers that IAM policy cannot, but I have serious concerns about the
performance and scalability of a model where radosgw has to send
blocking RPCs to OPA in order to authorize each and every request.

On the other hand, consider a model where a Policy Agent exercises its
control over authorization by writing IAM documents to radosgw, which we
use to cheaply authorize requests out of our metadata cache. I would
imagine that this model could cover a lot of interesting use cases,
without breaking support for existing s3 applications that rely on
bucket policy - as the proposal to reject PutBucketPolicy requests would.

Is this something that OPA could feasibly do?

For use cases that aren't supported by the existing policy grammar,
we're open to maintaining extensions to these documents. We already
implement a number of s3 extensions [1][2] that are easily accessible
via python/boto and the aws cli.

But a model where radosgw outsources authorization entirely is a hard
sell, because it conflicts with feature development going forward. One
example would be support for PublicAccessBlock [3], where radosgw needs
full visibility into policy to detect cases where public access would be
