Reference

This reference section covers service provider, identity provider, and circle of trust configuration properties.For the global services reference, see Reference.

Hosted Identity Provider Configuration Properties

Once you have set up a hosted identity provider, you can configure it through the AM console under Realms > Realm Name > Applications > Federation > Entity Providers > Provider Name.

Assertion Content

The following groups appear under the Assertion Content tab:

Signing and Encryption
Request/Response Signing

Specifies which parts of messages the identity provider requires the service provider to sign digitally.

Encryption

When selected, the service provider must encrypt NameID elements.

Secret ID and Algorithms
Secret ID Identifier

Specifies an identifier for the secret ID AM uses for this entity provider, when resolving secrets.

For example, when this value is set to demo, the entity provider will use the following secret IDs:

  • am.applications.federation.entity.providers.saml2.demo.signing

  • am.applications.federation.entity.providers.saml2.demo.encryption

If not specified, AM uses the entity provider role-specific, default global secret IDs. For more information, see Secret ID Mappings for SAML v2.0 Signing and Encryption.

Signing Algorithm

The algorithms the provider can use to sign the request/response attributes selected in the Request/Response Signing group.

These algorithms are exposed in the provider's metadata extension.

This property has no default.

Digest Algorithm

The digest algorithms the provider can use when signing the requests and responses selected in the Request/Response Signing group.

These algorithms are exposed in the provider's metadata extension.

This property has no default.

Encryption Algorithm

This field specifies two types of encryption algorithms for the provider:

  • Symmetric algorithms, which the provider can use to encrypt the objects selected in the Encryption group. Select one or more AES algorithms from the drop-down list.

    Default: http://www.w3.org/2001/04/xmlenc#aes128-cbc

  • Asymmetric algorithms, advertised as the provider's transport key algorithm. When SAML v2.0 token encryption is enabled, hosted providers should use the algorithm the remote provider is advertising when encrypting symmetric encryption keys.

    Select one or more algorithms from the drop-down list:

NameID Format
NameID Format List

Specifies the supported name identifiers for users that are shared between providers for single sign-on.

The following diagram shows how the hosted IDP decides which of the supported NameID formats is used:

How the hosted IDP decides which NameID format to Use.
NameID Value Map

Maps name identifier formats to user profile attributes. The persistent and transient name identifiers need not be mapped.

NameID mapping supports Base64-encoded binary values. With this flag set, AM Base64-encodes the profile attribute when adding it to the assertion.

Authentication Context
Mapper

Specifies a class that implements the IDPAuthnContextMapper interface and sets up the authentication context.

Default value: com.sun.identity.saml2.plugins.DefaultIDPAuthnContextMapper

Authentication Context

Specifies the authentication context classes the IDP supports, and any AM authentication mechanisms that are used when an SP specifies the respective class in a SAML v2.0 authentication request.

  • The Predefined Reference drop-down list specifies the list of context references.

  • The Key drop-down list specifies the authentication mechanism that AM uses when an SP specifies an authentication context class in a SAML v2.0 authentication request.

    Service

    AM will use the specified authentication chain or tree to authenticate the user.

    For example, in the Value field, enter HmacOneTimePassword to use the built-in one-time password example authentication tree, or ldapService to use the built-in chain that authenticates against the default identity store.

    Module

    AM will use the specified authentication module to authenticate the user.

    Authentication Level

    AM will authenticate the user with a method that has an associated authentication level equal to or higher than the specified value.

    If there is more than one suitable method, AM presents the available options by using a ChoiceCallback.

    For more information on using and returning callbacks during authentication, see Authenticating (REST).

    Important

    The Role, User, and Resource URL options are deprecated and should not be used.

  • The Value field specifies the name relative to the authentication mechanism you chose in the previous step. For example, if you chose the Service authentication mechanism, add the name of an authentication tree or chain in the Value field.

  • The Level field specifies the numeric value of precedence of the supported context reference classes.

    Classes with higher numbers are considered stronger than lower numbered classes. The values determine which authentication classes can be used when the SP makes an authentication request that uses a comparison attribute; for example, minimum or better.

    Note that the value in the Level field should match the auth level of the specified chain, module, or tree. For example, if the specified authentication chain sets an auth level of 10, set the same value in the Level field in the Authentication Context table. As AM compares the current auth level against the level specified in Authentication Context table, if the two values do not match, AM may require a logged in user to re-authenticate unnecessarily.

Example of Mapping Authentication Context Classes in AM

For more information on authentication context classes, see Authentication Context for the OASIS Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) V2.0 in the SAML V2.0 Standard.

Default value: urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:ac:classes:PasswordProtectedTransport

Assertion Time
Not-Before Time Skew

Grace period in seconds for the NotBefore time in assertions.

Effective Time

Validity in seconds of an assertion.

Basic Authentication
Enabled, User Name, Password

When enabled, authenticate with the specified user name and password at SOAP endpoints.

Assertion Cache
Enabled

When enabled, cache assertions.

Assertion Processing

The following properties appear under the Assertion Processing tab:

Attribute Mapper
Attribute Mapper

Specifies a class that implements the attribute mapping.

The default implementation attempts to retrieve the mapped attribute values from the user profile first. If the attribute values are not present in the user's profile, then it attempts to retrieve them from the user's session.

Default: com.sun.identity.saml2.plugins.DefaultIDPAttributeMapper

Attribute Map

Maps SAML attributes to user profile attributes.

The user profile attributes used here must both be allowed in user profiles, and also be specified for the identity repository. See "Adding User Profile Attributes", for instructions on allowing additional attributes in user profiles.

To see the profile attributes available for an LDAP identity repository, log in to the AM console as administrator, and go to Realms > Realm Name > Identity Stores > User Configuration. Check the LDAP User Attributes list.

The default IDP mapping implementation allows you to add static values in addition to values taken from the user profile. You add a static value by enclosing the profile attribute name in double quotes ("), as in the following example:

Example of Static Attribute Mapping
Account Mapper
Account Mapper

Specifies a class that implements AccountMapper to map remote users to local user profiles.

Disable NameID Persistence

Disables the storage of the NameID values in the user data store for all NameIDs issued by the IDP instance as long as the NameID format is anything but the persistent NameID format: urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:nameid-format:persistent. That is, you can disable the storage of NameID values with persistent NameID-Format if and only if there is a NameID value mapping set up for the NameID-Format.

Note

By preventing the storage of the NameID values, the ManageNameID and the NameIDMapping SAML profiles will no longer work when using any persistent NameID formats. Existing account links that have been established and stored are not removed when disabling NameID persistence.

Default value: false

Local Configuration
Auth URL

If present, overrides the default UI login URL used to authenticate users during federation.

Use this property to specify an alternative URL for authenticating users, for example, if you have created a custom user interface other than the UI.

The specified authentication URL is responsible for authenticating the federated user and must establish a session in AM, and return the SSO token value in the configured cookie name, usually iPlanetDirectoryPro.

The domain of the authentication URL must be configured in AM so that the cookie is accepted, and if host cookies are configured in AM, then the fully qualified domain name of the authentication URL must be identical to that of the AM instance.

For more information on configuring the domains AM accepts in the SSO cookies, see "Configuring the Cookie Domain".

Important

AM redirects users to the URL specified, and appends a goto parameter. The parameter contains the URL the user must be redirected to after authentication. The specified authentication URL must not override the goto parameter, as that would redirect the user elsewhere and federation will fail.

For more information, see "Configuring Success and Failure Redirection URLs".

Reverse Proxy URL

When a reverse proxy is used for SAML endpoints, it is specified here.

External Application Logout URL

URL to which to send an HTTP POST including all cookies when receiving a logout request. To add a user session property as a POST parameter, include it in the URL query string as a appsessionproperty parameter.

Services

The following properties appear under the Services tab:

MetaAlias
MetaAlias

Used to locate the provider's entity identifier, specified as [/realm-name]*/provider-name, where provider-name cannot contain slash characters (/). For example: /myRealm/mySubrealm/idp.

IDP Finder Implementation
IDP Finder Implementation Class

Specifies a class that finds the preferred identity provider to handle a proxied authentication request.

IDP Finder JSP

Specifies a JSP that presents the list of identity providers to the user.

Enable Proxy IDP Finder For All SPs

When enabled, apply the finder for all remote service providers.

Relay State URL List
Relay State URL List

List of URLs permitted for the RelayState parameter. AM validates the redirection URL in the RelayState parameter against this list. If the RelayState parameter's value is in the list, AM allows redirection to the RelayState URL. If it is not in the list, a browser error occurs.

Use the pattern matching rules described in "Configuring Success and Failure Redirection URLs" to specify URLs in the list.

If you DO NOT specify any URLs in this property, AM only allows redirection to RelayState URLs that match the domain of the instance. Any other URL will cause a browser error.

IDP Adapter
IDP Adapter Class

Specifies a class to invoke immediately before sending a SAML v2.0 response.

Remote Identity Provider Configuration Properties

Once you have set up a remote identity provider, you can configure it through the AM console under Realms > Realm Name > Applications > Federation > Entity Providers > Provider Name.

Assertion Content

The following properties appear under the Assertion Content tab:

Signing and Encryption
Request/Response Signing

Specifies what parts of messages the service provider requires the identity provider to sign digitally.

Encryption

The identity provider must encrypt selected elements.

Secret ID and Algorithms
Secret ID Identifier

Specifies an identifier for the secret ID AM uses for this entity provider, when resolving secrets.

For example, when this value is set to demo, the entity provider will use the following secret IDs:

  • am.applications.federation.entity.providers.saml2.demo.signing

  • am.applications.federation.entity.providers.saml2.demo.encryption

If not specified, AM uses the entity provider role-specific, default global secret IDs. For more information, see Secret ID Mappings for SAML v2.0 Signing and Encryption.

Signing Algorithm

The algorithms the provider can use to sign the request/response attributes selected in the Request/Response Signing group.

These algorithms are exposed in the provider's metadata extension.

This property has no default.

Digest Algorithm

The digest algorithms the provider can use when signing the requests and responses selected in the Request/Response Signing group.

These algorithms are exposed in the provider's metadata extension.

This property has no default.

Encryption Algorithm

This field specifies two types of encryption algorithms for the provider:

  • Symmetric algorithms, which the provider can use to encrypt the objects selected in the Encryption group. Select one or more AES algorithms from the drop-down list.

    Default: http://www.w3.org/2001/04/xmlenc#aes128-cbc

  • Asymmetric algorithms, advertised as the provider's transport key algorithm. When SAML v2.0 token encryption is enabled, hosted providers should use the algorithm the remote provider is advertising when encrypting symmetric encryption keys.

    Select one or more algorithms from the drop-down list:

NameID Format
NameID Format List

Specifies the supported name identifiers for users that are shared between providers for single sign-on.

The following diagram shows how the hosted SP decides which of the supported NameID formats is used:

How the hosted SP decides which NameID format to Use.
Disable NameID Persistence

Disables the storage of NameIDs in the user data store, even if the NameID format is urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:nameid-format:persistent in the received assertion and the account mapper has identified the local user.

You may want to disable storage of NameID values if you are using a read-only data store, or an external identity store that does not have the AM identity schemas applied.

Note

When local authentication is utilized for account linking purposes, disabling federation persistence requires end users to authenticate locally for each SAML-based login.

Default value: false

Authentication Context
Mapper

Specifies a class that implements the SPAuthnContextMapper interface and sets up the authentication context.

Default: com.sun.identity.saml2.plugins.DefaultSPAuthnContextMapper

Authentication Context

Specifies the authentication context classes the SP supports, and any AM authentication mechanisms that are used when an IDP specifies the respective class in a SAML v2.0 authentication request.

  • The Predefined Reference drop-down list specifies the list of context references.

  • The Key drop-down list specifies the authentication mechanism that AM uses when an SP specifies an authentication context class in a SAML v2.0 authentication request.

    Service

    AM will use the specified authentication chain or tree to authenticate the user.

    For example, in the Value field, enter HmacOneTimePassword to use the built-in one-time password example authentication tree, or ldapService to use the built-in chain that authenticates against the default identity store.

    Module

    AM will use the specified authentication module to authenticate the user.

    Authentication Level

    AM will authenticate the user with a method that has an associated authentication level equal to or higher than the specified value.

    If there is more than one suitable method, AM presents the available options by using a ChoiceCallback.

    For more information on using and returning callbacks during authentication, see Authenticating (REST).

    Important

    The Role, User, and Resource URL options are deprecated and should not be used.

  • The Value field specifies the name relative to the authentication mechanism you chose in the previous step. For example, if you chose the Service authentication mechanism, add the name of an authentication tree or chain in the Value field.

  • The Level field specifies the numeric value of precedence of the supported context reference classes.

    Classes with higher numbers are considered stronger than lower numbered classes. The values determine which authentication classes can be used when the SP makes an authentication request that uses a comparison attribute; for example, minimum or better.

    Note that the value in the Level field should match the auth level of the specified chain, module, or tree. For example, if the specified authentication chain sets an auth level of 10, set the same value in the Level field in the Authentication Context table. As AM compares the current auth level against the level specified in Authentication Context table, if the two values do not match, AM may require a logged in user to re-authenticate unnecessarily.

Example of Mapping Authentication Context Classes in AM

For more information on authentication context classes, see Authentication Context for the OASIS Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) V2.0 in the SAML V2.0 Standard.

Default value: urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:ac:classes:PasswordProtectedTransport

Comparison Type

Used in conjunction with the Default Authentication Context to specify the possible range of authentication mechanisms the IDP can choose from.

For example, if the Comparison Type field is set to better, and the PasswordProtectedTransport authentication context class is selected in the Default Authentication Context field, the IDP must select an authentication mechanism with a higher level assigned.

For information on how AM maps the authentication mechanism to authentication context classes, and how to set the precedence, see Authentication Context.

Default: exact

Include Request Authentication Context

Specifies whether to include an authentication context class as the Requested Authentication Context in the SAML v2.0 Authentication Request.

Default: Enabled

Assertion Time
Assertion Time Skew

Grace period in seconds for the NotBefore time in assertions.

Basic Authentication
Enabled, User Name, Password

When enabled, authenticate with the specified user name and password at SOAP endpoints.

Assertion Processing

The following properties appear under the Assertion Processing tab:

Attribute Mapper
Attribute Mapper

Specifies a class that implements the attribute mapping.

Attribute Map

Maps SAML attributes to session properties, or user profile attributes.

The value of Key is a SAML attribute sent in an assertion, and the value of Value is a property in the user's session, or an attribute of the user's profile.

By default, the SP maps the SAML attributes it receives to equivalent-named session properties. However, when the SP is configured to create identities during autofederation and the identity does not exist yet, the SP maps the SAML attributes to their equivalents in the newly-created user profile.

The special mapping Key: *, Value: * means that the SP maps each attribute it receives in the assertion to equivalent-named properties or attributes. For example, if the SP receives mail and firstname in the assertion, it maps them to mail and firstname respectively.

Remove the special mapping and add key pairs to the map if:

  • (During autofederation) The attributes in the IdP's and the SP's identity stores do not match.

  • You need control over the names of the session properties.

  • You need control over which attributes the SP should map, because the IdP adds too many to the assertion.

For example, if the the SAML attribute is firstname and you want the SP to map it to a session property/user profile attribute called cn, create a mapping similar to Key: firstname, Value: cn.

Auto Federation
Enabled

When enabled, automatically federate user's accounts at different providers based on the specified SAML attribute.

Attribute

Specifies the SAML attribute to match accounts at different providers.

Account Mapper
Account Mapper

Specifies the user profile to map all identity provider users when sending transient name identifiers.

Artifact Message Encoding
Artifact Message Encoding

Specifies the message encoding format for artifacts.

URL
Local Authentication URL

Specifies the local login URL.

Intermediate URL

Specifies a URL to which the user is redirected after authentication but before the original URL requested.

External Application Logout URL

Specifies the URL to which to send an HTTP POST including all cookies when receiving a logout request. To add a user session property as a POST parameter, include it in the URL query string as a appsessionproperty parameter.

Default Relay State URL
Default Relay State URL

Manage NameID Service

Specifies the endpoints to manage name identifiers, depending on the SAML binding selected.

Assertion Consumer Service

Specifies the endpoints to consume assertions, with Index corresponding to the index of the URL in the standard metadata.

The scheme, FQDN, and port configured must exactly match those of the service provider as they appear in its metadata.

To determine the service provider's endpoint URL, AM uses the Base URL service, if configured.

If the URL does not match, the SAML v2.0 flow will fail and AM will log Invalid Assertion Consumer Location specified in the audit log file.

Advanced Settings

The following properties appear under the Advanced tab:

SAE Configuration
SP URL

Specifies the endpoint to manage Secure Attribute Exchange requests.

SP Logout URL

Specifies the endpoint of the service provider that can handle global logout requests.

Introduction

When enabled, use introductions to find the proxy identity provider.

Proxy Count

Specifies the maximum number of proxy identity providers.

IDP Proxy List

Specifies a list of URIs identifying preferred proxy identity providers.

Session Synchronization
Enabled

When enabled, the service provider sends a SOAP logout request over the back channel to all identity providers when a session times out. A session may time out when the maximum idle time or maximum session time is reached, for example.

Relay State URL List
Relay State URL List

List of URLs permitted for the RelayState parameter. AM validates the redirection URL in the RelayState parameter against this list. If the RelayState parameter's value is in the list, AM allows redirection to the RelayState URL. If it is not in the list, a browser error occurs.

Use the pattern matching rules described in "Configuring Success and Failure Redirection URLs" to specify URLs in the list.

If you DO NOT specify any URLs in this property, AM only allows redirection to RelayState URLs that match the domain of the instance. Any other URL will cause a browser error.

Remote Service Provider Configuration Properties

Once you have set up a remote service provider, you can configure it through the AM console by navigating to Realms > Realm Name > Applications > Federation > Entity Providers > Provider Name.

Assertion Content

The following properties appear under the Assertion Content tab:

Manage NameID Service

Specifies the endpoints to manage name identifiers, depending on the SAML binding selected.

Assertion Consumer Service

Specifies the endpoints to consume assertions, with Index corresponding to the index of the URL in the standard metadata.

Advanced

The following properties appear under the Advanced tab:

Request Processing
Skip Endpoint Validation For Signed Requests

When enabled, AM does not verify Assertion Consumer Service URL values provided in SAML authentication requests. This allows the Assertion Consumer Service URL to contain dynamic query parameters, for example.

As assertion consumer service URL verification is part of the SAML v2.0 spec, you can only skip validation if the authentication request is digitally signed by the SP. To digitally sign authentication requests, in the remote SP configuration navigate to Assertion Content > Signing and Encryption > Request/Response Signing, and select Authentication Requests Signed.

Important

You must configure the remote SP to sign the authentication request.

AM returns an error if it receives an unsigned authentication request and this option is enabled.
