1. Introduction

1.1 Purpose of the requirements document

This Software Requirements Specification (SRS) identifies the requirements for project StartAir Safe. In case of a open source project, we must present the requirement to others potential contributors. This document is a guideline about the functionalities offered and the problems that the system solves.

1.2 Scope of the product

The goal of the project is to add to IPOPO an encrypted remote shell without using external modules as much as possible. Adding this shell would allow the use of sensitive data, such as passwords, from a client to an IPOPO application.

1.3 Definitions, acronyms and abbreviations

  • IPOPO : A Python-based Service-Oriented Component Model Documentation officielle
  • Shell : A shell is a user interface for access to an operating system's services. It is accessed through a command-line interface (CLI)
  • CLI (Command Line Interface) : A means of interacting with a computer program where the user (or client) issues commands to the program in the form of successive lines of text (command lines)
  • IPOPO internal shell : IPOPO component allowing the management of a running IPOPO application.
  • IPOPO Remote shell : IPOPO component allowing a remote access to an IPOPO internal shell.
  • PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) : a set of roles, policies, and procedures needed to create, manage, distribute, use, store, and revoke digital certificates[1] and manage public-key encryption

1.5 Overview of the remainder of the document

The next chapter, the Overall Description section, of this document gives an overview of the functionality of the product. It describes the informal requirements and is used to establish a context for the technical requirements specification in the next chapter. The third chapter, Requirements Specification section, of this document is written primarily for the developers and describes in technical terms the details of the functionality of the product. Both sections of the document describe the same software product in its entirety, but are intended for different audiences and thus use different language.


2. General description

2.1 Product perspective

The goal of this project to create two IPOPO extensions :

  • An encrypted version of the IPOPO remote shell
  • The creation of a PKI

The first extension will use the PKI to handle a set of users using certificates.

2.2 Product functions

Using these two extensions, an ipopo application administrator will be able to manage users and their secured access to the IPOPO remote shell.

2.3 User characteristics

The users of these two extensions are any IPOPO users.

2.4 General constraints

  • Developed in python
  • Compatible with python2 and python3
  • Without external dependencies
  • Compatible Linux and Windows

2.5 Assumptions and dependencies

If necessary, the compatibility with Windows can be ignored at first.

3. Specific requirements, covering functional, non-functional and interface requirements
