The Local Inbound Security module stores user accounts locally in Smile CDR’s administrative database. When using this module, Smile CDR acts as a completely self-contained CDR and User Management system. This can be useful when deploying Smile CDR in circumstances where no existing user database or identity management platform is present.
By default Smile CDR creates a Local Inbound Security module, and seeds it with a single administrative user named
admin. You may use the Web Admin Console or the JSON Admin API to create and modify users.
When storing usernames in the database, the module can optionally normalize them so that checks will be case insensitive. This is disabled by default, and it can be enabled by setting Username Case Sensitive to
When storing passwords in the database, the module can optionally normalize them so that checks will be case insensitive. This is enabled by default, and it can be disabled by setting Password Case Sensitive to
Passwords will be stored in the database using a salted hash, and the salt is randomly generated for each individual password. By default the hashing algorithm used is a 10-round bcrypt. This can be changed by modifying the Password Encoding Scheme value.
One important thing to note when updating user accounts is that the system caches user credential hashes for a short period of time in order to improve performance. Any changes to a user account (i.e. changing a password, modifying the user’s permissions, etc.) may take a few seconds to propagate across the cluster.
