SAML SP Integration#

Apache SAML#

Configuring Apache Shibboleth SP in CentOS#

System Preparation#

Add Shibboleth repository for CentOS

  • The file shib.repo contains the following entry:
[security_shibboleth]
name=Shibboleth (CentOS_CentOS-6)
type=rpm-md
baseurl=http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/security:/shibboleth/CentOS_CentOS-6/
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/security:/shibboleth/CentOS_CentOS-6/repodata/repomd.xml.key
enabled=1
  • Download the Shibboleth security repo key from here:
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/security:/shibboleth/CentOS_CentOS-6/security:shibboleth.repo

Shibboleth SP Installation#

To install the Shibboleth SP, run the following commands in a terminal:

# yum install shibboleth
# service shibd start
# chkconfig shibd on

Install and Configure httpd#

Installation#

The following commands will both install, and start the Apache web server on your machine/Linux environment:

# yum install httpd
# service httpd start
# service iptables stop 

Configuration#

Edit the file httpd.conf, and do the following changes:

  • Change the ServerName directive to the server name of the SP.

  • Set UseCanonicalName On.

  • Restart the httpd service using the command service httpd restart.

Httpd Testing#

  • Create an index.html file inside the directory /var/www/html.

  • Restart the httpd service using the command service httpd restart.

  • Check from your browser if the file index.html is visible.

SP Key Certificate#

  • Create both a private key, and a certificate, and place those in the file /etc/shibboleth.

  • Change the permissions of these files so that the web server can read the files.

Shibboleth SP Configuration#

This section describes how to configure the file shibboleth2.xml.

  • Provide the entityID of the according SP in:

    • <ApplicationDefaults entityID="http://sp.example.org/Shibboleth"> section
  • Provide the entityID of the IdP in:

    • <SSO entityID="https://idp.gluu.org/idp/shibboleth"> section
  • Adjust the entry of the metadata provider. In most cases this is the Gluu IdP metadata link:

    • <MetadataProvider type="XML" uri="https://idp.gluu.org/idp/shibboleth"> section
  • Provide both the key and certificate of the SP in:

    • <CredentialResolver type="File" key="spkey.key" certificate="spcrt.crt"> section

Shibboleth Manual Configuration (one Physical SP):#

  • Create a directory named under /var/www/secure.

  • Change the permissions for that directory secure to apache:apache (owner and group of the web server).

  • httpd.conf

    • change the ServerName <hostname_of_server>

    • Define the Location, and the authorization type:

      <Location /secure>
          AuthType shibboleth
          ShibRequestSetting requireSession 1
          ShibUseHeaders on
          Require valid-user
      </Location>
  • configure shibboleth2.xml

    • Set the EntityID of the SP: ApplicationDefaults entityID="http://hostname/secure"

    • Provide the EntityID of the IDP: SSO entityID="https://idp.gluu.org/idp/shibboleth"

    • Set both the Metadata Provider, and the IDP: MetadataProvider type="XML" uri="https://idp.gluu.org/idp/shibboleth"

  • Restart both shibd and Apache2 using these lines:

service shibd restart
service httpd restart
  • Create a Trust Relationship for this SP in your desired IdP.

Super Quick Ubuntu Shib Apache Install#

Need to protect a test Apache folder using SAML on an Ubuntu server? Hate to read? This article is for you. Replace both sp and sp.gluu.info with your desired website hostname (SP hostname).

Configure Apache#

These are the steps to configure your Apache webserver properly:

# apt-get install apache2 libshibsp6 libapache2-mod-shib2
# a2enmod cgi
# a2enmod ssl
# a2enmod shib2
# a2ensite default-ssl
# mkdir /etc/certs
# cd /etc/certs
# openssl genrsa -des3 -out sp.key 2048
# openssl rsa -in sp.key -out sp.key.insecure
# mv sp.key.insecure sp.key
# openssl req -new -key sp.key -out sp.csr
# openssl x509 -req -days 365 -in sp.csr -signkey sp.key -out sp.crt
# shib-metagen -c /etc/certs/sp.crt -h sp.gluu.info > /etc/shibboleth/SP-metadata.xml
# service apache2 start
# service shibd start

Download SP-metadata.xml to your machine. You will need this file later when you create the Trust Relationship in the Gluu Server.

# mkdir /var/www/protected
# touch /var/www/protected/printHeaders.py
# chmod ugo+x /var/www/protected/printHeaders.py
Edit printHeaders.py, and add this simple script. It will show you the HTTP headers:

#!/usr/bin/python

import os

d = os.environ
k = d.keys()
k.sort()

print "Content-type: text/html\n\n"

print "<HTML><HEAD><TITLE>Print Env Variables</TITLE></Head><BODY>"
print "<h1>Environment Variables</H1>"
for item in k:
    print "<p><B>%s</B>: %s </p>" % (item, d[item])
print "</BODY></HTML>"

Edit the default site at /etc/apache2/sites-available/default-ssl.conf, and add this part:

ScriptAlias /protected/ /var/www/protected/
<Directory /var/www/protected>
    AddHandler cgi-script .py
    Options +ExecCGI
    SSLOptions +StdEnvVars
    AuthType shibboleth
    ShibRequestSetting requireSession 1
    Require valid-user
</Directory>

Configure the Shibboleth SP#

Use this for shibboleth2.xml and replace sp.gluu.info with the hostname of your SP, and idp.gluu.info with the hostname of your IDP.

Open https://your-gluu-server/idp/shibboleth You will see your IDP server's metadata. Copy it into /etc/shibboleth/IDP-metadata.xml:

Copy this file into /etc/shibboleth/attribute-map.xml:

<Attributes xmlns="urn:mace:shibboleth:2.0:attribute-map" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
    <Attribute name="urn:oid:2.5.4.42" id="givenName"/>
    <Attribute name="urn:oid:2.5.4.4" id="sn"/>

    <Attribute name="urn:oid:0.9.2342.19200300.100.1.1" id="uid"/>
</Attributes>

Now you need to create a Trust Relationship in your Gluu Server. Login, go to SAML / Trust Relationships, and "Add Relationship":

Troubleshooting#

  • Make sure you update your hosts file on the Gluu Server, Apache server, and your workstation--this won't work with IP addresses, only.

  • Check the Shibboleth log file /opt/idp/logs/idp-process.log if you don't see the headers or REMOTE_USER environment variables. Also, restart the Jetty service by service identity restart to make sure the new Shibboleth IDP xml files were loaded.

  • Clear the cookies in your web browser for both the Apache site, and the Gluu Server if you are logging in and logging out a lot with lots of server restarts.

  • If you do test in local environment and using proxies you may need
    to bypass proxy address checking by setting checkAddress="false" in shibboleth2.xml configuration

Configuring Apache Shibboleth SP in Windows#

Shibboleth SP Installation#

  1. Download the MSI of Shibboleth-SP from shibboleth Repository

  2. Start the installation

    IMAGE

  3. Define the destination folder (by default it is: C:\opt\shibboleth-sp).

    IMAGE

  4. Select the Shibboleth Daemon port. By default it is 1600, and you may keep it for testing it, locally.

    IMAGE

  5. Now, there are two options. According to your target you will have to choose one.

    1. Option 1: If you install Shibboleth for the Apache Web Server

    2. Option 2: If you install Shibboleth for Microsoft IIS Web Server

      a. For the Microsoft IIS Web Server, CHECK “Install ISAPI filter and configure IIS”. Remember to put the file Extension ”.sso” -- this is necessary.

    IMAGE b. For the Apache Web Server, UNCHECK "Install ISAPI filter and configure IIS".

    IMAGE 3. UAC of Windows 7 may block this program, so allow it.

    IMAGE

Apache Configuration#

  1. Download the Apache HTTP server MSI Installer with OpenSSL: http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi#apache22 .

    IMAGE

  2. Select the destination. You can keep the default destination for your local testing. But, make sure that there is no other “Apache Software Foundation” directory in your current “C:\Program Files\” location.

    IMAGE

  3. Provide the Server Information. For local testing you can use localdomain/localhost.

    IMAGE

  4. Test whether the Apache web server is installed or not. Open your web browser and use localhost. If you see something like the image shown below--you are done!

    IMAGE

Shibboleth and Apache Configuration#

  1. Change the permission of the Apache installation directory, and provide “write” access.

  2. httpd.conf configuration

    1. Change “ServerName localhost:80” (for your local testing)

    2. Copy apache22.conf from the Shibboleth directory to ~/apache/conf/extra/

  3. Shibboleth2.xml configuration

    1. Change: Host name=“localhost” (for local testing)

    2. Change: entityID=“https://localhost/shibboleth” (for local testing)

    3. Change: ApplicationOverride id=“admin” entityID=“https://localhost/shibboleth/”

  4. Reboot your windows machine.

Test SP Installation with Windows and Apache#

  1. Open the web browser, and provide the address: localhost/Shibboleth.sso/Status
  2. If you can see some XML page like the one shown below--you are done with your SP installation in Windows through Apache2.
