Qonduit is a secure web socket proxy for Apache Accumulo.
Qonduit is a Java server process that uses Netty for a secure web socket transport and Spring for pluggable security modules. Qonduit uses Jackson for serialization and deserialization of CBOR encoded request/response objects. Qonduit discovers custom request and response types and server side logic using the Java Service Loader mechanism. Qonduit differs from the Accumulo Proxy in the following ways:
- Qonduit uses secure web sockets to provide an asychronous and secure transport between the client and the Qonduit server.
- Qonduit can optionally authenticate users using client supplied credentials and a Spring Security configuration on the Qonduit server.
- Qonduit does not provide a strict proxy for the Accumulo client API, it is designed to be extended with pluggable server side logic and custom request and response types.
