CAF lib cross-application interaction

Build Status

This repository contains a CAF library that implements interactions between applications.

Applications, even from the same owner, never trust each other. Therefore, cross-app interactions are similar to an external client accessing the target application, i.e., explicit tokens are needed to secure the interaction.

When we want a method open to anybody, e.g., when the arguments to that method are signed tokens that can be validated, we can enable the user nobody (see property allowNobodyUser in caf_security). This bypasses the authentication checks.
