1. User Authentication for AI Dashboard using Keycloak OIDC


    To set up user authentication for an AI Dashboard using Keycloak with OpenID Connect (OIDC), you'll need to configure a Keycloak Realm and an OIDC Identity Provider. Keycloak is an open-source Identity and Access Management solution aimed at modern applications and services, which makes it suitable for securing your AI dashboard.

    Below is a Pulumi program in Python that sets up a Keycloak realm and configures an OIDC identity provider. The program assumes that you have already set up Keycloak itself and are now using Pulumi to automate the configuration of Keycloak for your application.

    Before you begin, ensure that you have the pulumi_keycloak plugin installed in your Pulumi environment:

    pulumi plugin install resource keycloak <version>

    Replace <version> with the version you wish to install, which should be compatible with your Pulumi CLI version.

    Detailed Explanation

    1. Realm: Realms in Keycloak represent a managed set of users, credentials, roles, and groups. A user belongs to and logs into a realm. Realms isolate their users and sessions from other realms.

    2. OIDC Identity Provider: OIDC (OpenID Connect) is a layer on top of the OAuth2 protocol. It allows clients to verify the identity of the end-user based on the authentication performed by an authorization server, as well as to obtain basic profile information about the end-user in an interoperable and REST-like manner.

    Now let's proceed with the Pulumi program in Python:

    import pulumi import pulumi_keycloak as keycloak # Create a new Keycloak Realm realm = keycloak.Realm("myRealm", realm="my-ai-dashboard-realm", enabled=True, # Other desired configurations for the realm ) # Configure an OIDC Identity provider oidc_provider = keycloak.oidc.IdentityProvider("googleOidcProvider", alias="google", realm=realm.realm, provider_id="google", client_id="your-google-client-id", # Replace with your client ID client_secret=keycloak.GenericSecretValue("your-google-client-secret"), # Replace with your client secret enabled=True, # Additional configurations like syncing modes, scopes, etc. # can be set here according to your requirements ) # Export the realm and identity provider ID, if needed pulumi.export("realm_id", realm.id) pulumi.export("oidc_provider_id", oidc_provider.id)

    In the above program:

    • We create a new Keycloak Realm called my-ai-dashboard-realm.
    • We then configure an OIDC Identity Provider within the realm, in this case, Google.

    Make sure to replace "your-google-client-id" and "your-google-client-secret" with actual client ID and secret obtained when you set up your Google project for OIDC.

    Generally, you'd perform these actions in the Keycloak admin console, but with Pulumi, you can script these actions, which aids in automating and tracking configurations as code.

    This program creates the necessary Keycloak configuration for user authentication in your AI Dashboard. The OIDC provider we set up would then be tied to the application where you’re embedding the AI Dashboard, and it would handle the user logins for you.
