Secure Access to Liferay through RProxyDMZ

This page has been moved here from the Main wiki because it is, in fact a proposal.



Putting a Liferay-Portal directly on the Internet gives attackers direct access to any vulnerabilities of the underlying platform (application, web server, libraries, operating system). However, to provide a useful service to Internet users, access to your portal-server is required. A packet filter firewall shields your portal-server from attacks on the network level. In addition a Protection Reverse Proxy protects the portal-server software on the level of the application protocol.

Security is not the only reason why a ReverseProxy is useful. A ReververseProxy can be used as a common entry Point for different backend-systems (Integration-Proxy) and/or as a FrontDoor for sigle sign on and access control.

This shows a RProxy with a 1:1 URL-Mapping. You could do very complicated URL-Mappings too, but for security- and performance-reason its always a good idea to keep RProxy configs it as simple as possible.

This sort of functionality should be implemented in the caching portion of Liferay, IMHO. Allowing the installation of the Caching/Proxy server on multiple machines, particularly if they can be geographically distributed (ala Akami) really goes a long way toward reaching for that N-tiered application.
