Feature name Migrate from Basic Auth  +
Feature non-goals Hope to get ahead in setting up security necessary for running a sync-key server  +
Feature open issues and risks Sync web servers receive username/pass in
Sync web servers receive username/pass in cleartext (BasicAuth) through https before handing them off to LDAP/mySQL. Will be a problem when we store sync-keys protected by username/pass, because access to Sync web servers will be point of vulnerability. If an attacker gains control of Sync web servers, they will have access to username/pass in cleartext, can use these credentials to access sync-key, and then unencrypt user data stored on Sync web servers.

Feature overview Replace BasicAuth with more secure system where Sync web servers do not have access to cleartext passwords. This protocol can be DigestAuth, public/private key, etc, needs to be cleared with Security.  +

Feature users and use cases Users using Sync will use more secure prot
Users using Sync will use more secure protocol (not BasicAuth) to authenticate access to Sync web servers. Passwords must not be passed around in plaintext. Migration: DigestAuth (strawman): will revert to BasicAuth once for calculating hash of password for authentication, and will use DigestAuth for all future authentication.
DigestAuth for all future authentication.  +
