|Authentication and Authorization|
When accounts on a transfer server are configured to require token authorization, only transfers initiated with a valid token are allowed to transfer to or from the server. The token authorization requirement can be set for individual users, entire user groups, or globally for all users. Token authorization can be set independently for incoming transfers and outgoing transfers.
Token authorization is a requirement for initiating transfers with the Shares product.
Set up token authorization for a transfer user as follows:
drwxr-xr-x 2 aspera_user_1 xgroup 4096 Mar 20 2013 .ssh -rw-r--r-- 1 aspera_user_1 xgroup 674 Mar 20 2013 .ssh/authorized_keys
To configure user authorization from the GUI, see Configuring Token Authorization from the GUI.
To configure user authorization from aspera.conf, see Configuring Token Authorization With aspera.conf.
Instead of setting authorization for each user individually, you can set it for a group, or set it globally for all users.
% asnodeadmin -au nuser -x aspera_user_1 -p nuser_passwd
% curl -ki -u nuser:nuser_passwd https://hostname_or_ip:9092/info
