Protect image repository against uploading files with any types

Registered by hossein zabolzadeh on 2015-01-16

Why it is possible to add any file with any types to Glance service? In my opinion its better to write an image-type-checking chunk to check the file type used as input parameter in "glance image-create" command.

It's possible to add e.g. profile.png image file to the glance service. Glance is not a file server, and I think this operation needs to be restricted.

Restricting users to add file with any formats to glance, will eliminate ongoing problems, something like a case mentioned in related bugs(https://bugs.launchpad.net/glance/+bug/1376605).

Whiteboard

[Zabolzadeh]:
Writting a type-checking module is neccessary in openstack project. In my opinion, Glance needs to be aware of what is uploaded.
