A Key Distribution Server that release tickets to be used for RPC Messaging Security

Registered by Simo Sorce on 2013-05-07

MessageSecurity requires a central repository to register service identies, manage grou pof sevices and store shared keys,a s well as provide a ticketing system to allow secure communication between parties (signing and optionally encryption services).
The Key Distribution Server manages the ticketing system and stores shared keys between the Server itself and the registered servies. It may also store temporary group keys.

This server is necessary for the implementation of https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/MessageSecurity

After https://review.openstack.org/#/c/77701/ this work is being continued in a feature branch:
