⚡ Lightning Talk: Access Control and URI Path Normalization - Yan Avlasov, Google

Majority of Envoy’s access control policies are defined using the path component of the request URL. How can we be sure that URL Path Based Access Policies (PBAC) can not be bypassed? Two nominally different URL paths may in fact identify the same resource, and need to be normalized to their canonical form, before comparison. The normalization is standardized in RFC 3986, however it may not be enough to ensure safety of the access control. In this talk we explore the effects of URL path normalization on request access control, Envoy’s configuration options for path normalization and general principles for ensuring the safety of the PBAC policies.
