Mythril is a security analysis tool for Ethereum smart contracts. Mythril API (source code provided in the challenge forum) exposes this functionality as a network service. In this challenge you will add authentication functionality to the API.

Challenge Scope

  1. Add POST /auth/user endpoint.
    Input: first and last names, email address, a boolean flag specifying whether user want to subscribe for news mailing list, a string uuid of the terms of service the user agreed to.
    Validation: check that first and last names are provided, email is provided, correct, and unique, terms ID has a known value.
    Error: in case of validation failure, or any other problem, reply with the correct error status and message.
    - Create new user record in the database. User object should have an unique UUID (don't use email as UUID);
    - Generate a new API key for that user, store it with user object to the DB, and return in the API response.
