Notes covering OpenAM prerequisites, fixes, known issues. OpenAM provides open source Authentication, Authorization, Entitlement and Federation software.

Chapter 1. What's New in OpenAM 11.0.0

OpenAM 11 fixes a number of issues, and provides the following additional features.

Important

This release contains fixes that resolve security issues within OpenAM. It is strongly recommended that you update to this release to make your deployment more secure, and to take advantage of important functional fixes. ForgeRock customers can contact support for help and further information.

1.1. What's New in OpenAM 11.0.3

OpenAM 11.0.3 is a maintenance release that introduces new features and enhancements to OpenAM.

  • Add option to enable debug logging of decrypted SAML assertions. OpenAM now provides a debug logging option to decrypt SAML assertions when OpenAM runs as a service provider and assertion encryption is enabled (OPENAM-1631).

  • New goto/gotoOnFail URL Validation Service. OpenAM now provides a new "Validation Service" for URL whitelisting. OpenAM uses the Validation Service during the authentication process on the server and DAS-side for goto and gotoOnFail URLs, and during the SAML authentication process on the server and fedlet-side for Relay State URLs.

    You can set the goto/gotoOnFail URL lists on the OpenAM console via Access Control > realm > Services > Validation Service. The new property for the Validation Service is "openam-auth-valid-goto-resources."

    The Validation Service also uses a new delegation policy that grants the necessary permissions to the agent accounts, which allows them to access the valid goto URL domain lists.

    The goto URL validation logic has been extracted out to a separate class called RedirectUrlValidator, which can be used from both openam-core and openam-federation-library.

    This feature is not supported as a patch and is only available by means of a new installation or an upgrade. The upgrade wizard ensures the migration of existing valid goto and gotoOnFail domains to the new service and ensures that the new delegation policy is added to the system. (OPENAM-1773).

    Note

    You must check that the goto and gotoOnFail redirects are still working after an upgrade if your goto and gotoOnFail URL lists are not fully formed.

  • Authentication Context Extensibility Support. OpenAM supports the extensibility of authentication context classes as described in the SAMLv2 specification (OPENAM-2238).

  • Password Reset Token Validation REST API. OpenAM now allows for the verification of password reset tokens through the REST API. For more information, see (OPENAM-3748).

  • Default Timelimit using Netscape SDK is Configurable. The default timelimit for LDAP operations performed using the Netscape SDK is now configurable (OPENAM-5311).

1.2. What's New in OpenAM 11.0.2

OpenAM 11.0.2 is a maintenance release that introduces new features and enhancements to OpenAM.

  • OAuth 2.0 Refresh Token Renewal. OpenAM now issues a new refresh token when an access token is refreshed ( OPENAM-3951).

  • Quicker UI Customization. While customizing the UI, you can set the advanced server property, org.forgerock.openam.core.resource.lookup.cache.enabled, to false to allow OpenAM immediately to pick up changes to the files as you customize them ( OPENAM-3989). You can set advanced server properties in OpenAM Console under Configuration > Servers and Sites > Server Name > Advanced. For production servers, leave this set to the default, true.

  • Whitelist for Custom Login URIs. OpenAM now includes a property that specifies a whitelist for custom login URIs so that the CDCServlet and the Distributed Authentication UI (DAS) can check login URI values against those in the whitelist.

    The property name is org.forgerock.openam.cdc.validLoginURIs. If you use custom login URIs in your deployment, add them to the whitelist, separating URIs with commas, setting org.forgerock.openam.cdc.validLoginURIs to /UI/Login,/customLoginURI for example. You can set this property in OpenAM console under Configuration > Servers and Sites > Default Server Settings > Advanced. The default value is /UI/Login.

    The CDCServlet and DAS accept only loginURI values that match one of the values in the whitelist. OpenAM strips query strings from loginURI values before comparing them with the values in the whitelist, so only include the URIs, not query string parameters.

  • Configurable DN Cache for LDAP Data Stores. OpenAM now has the capability to enable and disable DN caching. DN caching helps avoid DN lookups that can happen in bursts during authentication. ( OPENAM-3822 ).

    You can configure this feature as part of a Data Store profile. To configure DN caching in OpenAM console, browse to Access Control > Realm Name > Data Stores > Data Store Name > Cache Control.

  • CTS Connection Management Improvement ( OPENAM-3219).

  • Debug Log Improvements. AMSetupServlet now displays all configuration parameters in debug logs when the log level is set to ERROR ( OPENAM-2089).

    Debug log improvements have also reduced spurious stack traces that were logged during authentication processing ( OPENAM-371).

  • Attributes Populated on Dynamic User Creation. When creating users dynamically, OpenAM now populates all attributes that are provided and mapped for SAML 2.0 federation ( OPENAM-474).

  • Policies Support Additional HTTP Operations. Policies now support all types of HTTP operations, not just GET and POST ( OPENAM-336).

1.3. What's New in OpenAM 11.0.1

OpenAM 11.0.1 is a maintenance release that introduces new features and enhancements to OpenAM.

Product Enhancements
  • OpenAM REST API now allows logout with a restricted token (OPENAM-3484).

  • Restricted token asString values now use a hash in order to limit their size (OPENAM-3414).

  • The SAML 2.0 IDP Adapter interface now includes a preSignResponse method (OPENAM-3190).

    This method makes it possible to adjust the content of a SAML response in order to add a custom SAML extension for example. The method is called after the SAML Response object is created but before the SAML Response is signed or encrypted.

  • The default SAML 2.0 IDP attribute mapper implementation now provides a way to Base64 encode binary attributes (OPENAM-2767).

    In order to have the default IDP attribute mapper Base64 encode binary attributes when adding them to the SAML attributes, use the ;binary postfix for the attribute name, as in the following example:

    objectGUID=objectGUID;binary

    This maps the local binary attribute objectGUID to a SAML attribute called objectGUID that is Base64 encoded.

    The default IDP attribute mapper also supports NameFormat URI format as shown in the following example:

    urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:attrname-format:uri|objectGUID=objectGUID;binary
  • The AttributeQueryUtil.getAttributeMapForFedlet method now handles failure status codes received from the IDP (OPENAM-1749).

1.4. What's New in OpenAM 11.0.0

OpenAM 11.0.0 is a major release that introduces new features and enhancements to OpenAM.

Product Enhancements
  • This release uses the new OpenAM Core Token Service (CTS), with a more generalized token storage format for sessions, SAML Tokens, and OAuth Tokens. The LDAP schema have been extended for the CTS objects.

  • OpenAM now fully supports OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect 1.0 as well as the required building blocks such as WebFinger, and JWT and related emerging standards.

    In addition to playing the role of OAuth 2.0 client and resource server, OpenAM can play the role of OAuth 2.0 authorization server. See Managing OAuth 2.0 Authorization in the Administration Guide for explanations, instructions, and examples.

    OpenAM support for OpenID Connect 1.0 extends OAuth 2.0 capabilities so clients can verify claims about the identity of the end user, get profile information for the end user, and manage end user sessions. OpenAM plays the role of OpenID Provider. See Managing OpenID Connect 1.0 Authorization in the Administration Guide for details.

  • New, more modern RESTful web services are available for authentication, identity management, profile management, session management, Integrated Windows Authentication, and more. New endpoints are available under the URI /json where OpenAM is deployed, and are demonstrated in the Developer Guide chapter on Using RESTful Web Services in the Developer's Guide in OpenAM.

  • OpenAM adaptive authentication capabilities now include the Device Print authentication module (OPENAM-1375). The Device Print module uses characteristics of a system, including installed fonts, screen resolution, timezone, and also geolocation to uniquely identify the system. The Device Print module includes all of the functionality associated with the HOTP authentication module.

  • OpenAM now supports Open Authentication (OATH, OPENAM-727). The module provides the user with a one-time password based either on a HMAC one-time password or a time-based one-time password. OATH lets you determine which type of one-time password is best for your users when they need to login with a password generating device. Devices can range from a smartphone to a dedicated device, such as YubiKey or any other OATH compliant device.

    With OATH, OpenAM now supports YubiKey authentication. The YubiKey simplifies the process of logging in with a One Time Password token as it does not require the user to re-type long pass codes from a display device into the login field of the computer. The YubiKey is inserted in the USB-port of any computer and the OTP is generated and automatically entered with a simple touch of a button on the YubiKey, and without the need of any client software or drivers.

  • OpenAM now fully supports Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) in addition to IPv4.

  • OpenAM now fully supports Java 7 environments.

  • OpenAM Session failover has been modified to be simpler to deploy (OPENAM-625). OpenAM 10.0.1 and earlier required the use of Open Message Queue and Berkeley DB Java Edition, which increased the complexity and amount of time required to get session failover working. OpenAM now writes session data to the configuration data store instead. This implementation also can be used to make sessions persist across restart for single OpenAM servers. The current implementation requires that you use OpenDJ for the configuration data store.

  • OpenAM now includes a preview of the cloud Dashboard service, part of allowing user self-management of web based applications. (OPENAM-2019).

  • OpenAM now bundles OpenDJ 2.6.

  • A new UI is available for experimental, non-production use. Informally known as the XUI, this JavaScript based UI uses LESS CSS for UI configuration.

Additional New Features
  • The Persistent Cookie module has been added to support configuration of cookie lifetimes, based on requests and a maximum time.

  • IBM WebSphere 8 is now a supported platform. See Preparing IBM WebSphere in the Installation Guide in the Installation Guide for details on how to setup WebSphere 8.0 and 8.5 before deploying OpenAM.

  • The policy tree index has been updated so that resources first check the root level of a realm first. The tree will be created from this level, and any subsequent referrals will create another tree specific to the realm where the referral was retrieved. This conserves memory and reduces the amount of time required to load the tree. An intelligent indexing model now assists with quickly identifying relevant policy rules for the resource being authorized.

  • The zero page login has been modified so that administrators can disable the functionality. The zero page login process is the ability of the user to login using only GET parameters, which presents a possible security issue. Zero page login is now disabled by default (OPENAM-2354).

  • OpenAM now provides an account expiration post authentication plugin to set an account expiration date on successful login.

  • Remote clients that register notification URLs with OpenAM can now successfully deregister on shutdown (OPENAM-2766, OPENAM-2765), preventing OpenAM from trying to notify applications that are no longer running.

  • OpenAM now lets you configure the profile attribute name for email used by the password reset module (OPENAM-2604).

  • OpenAM now provides a mechanism for Identity Providers to use private key passwords that differ from the password stored in OpenAM's .keypass file (OPENAM-2306).

  • OpenAM Java Fedlet SPACSUtils can now find the metaAlias in either the URI or the query string parameters (OPENAM-2258).

  • OpenAM now provides a mechanism to supply static values when setting up attribute mapping for a SAML 2.0 Identity Provider or Service Provider (OPENAM-2184).

  • OpenAM's LDAP authentication module now supports Samba 4 LDAP response codes (OPENAM-1826).

  • OpenAM's OATH authentication module's minimum password length is now configurable (OPENAM-1765).

  • The AMLoginModule now lets authentication modules retrieve the list of current session tokens for a user (OPENAM-1721).

  • OpenAM Console again includes a generic LDAP data store option (OPENAM-1656).

  • OpenAM's IDPAdapter now provides additional hooks for customization. This improvement introduces changes to the API that affect custom IDPAdapters (OPENAM-1623).

  • Legacy naming conventions have been changed to conform to the current product name, OpenAM. This includes the OpenAM bootstrap file (OPENAM-1555). $HOME/.openamcfg/ is the new name for $HOME/.openssocfg/. If you upgrade, OpenAM still supports use of $HOME/.openssocfg/, and does not rename the folder. For new OpenAM installs, OpenAM creates the directory with the new name, $HOME/.openamcfg/, at configuration time. Other files, such as the openam.war file, and paths have been modified to ensure consistency with the naming conventions.

  • When running as a Service Provider, OpenAM no longer requires that you enable module-based authentication (OPENAM-1470).

  • OpenAM now has better support for using a reverse proxy for federation when DAS is also deployed (OPENAM-1454).

  • OpenAM now allows use of a read-only data store with a non-transient NameID during SAML 2.0 federation (OPENAM-1427).

  • The ssoadm command now includes a get-sub-cfg subcommand (OPENAM-1348).

  • OpenAM IDPs can now proxy all requests whether or not the SP allow the behavior (OPENAM-1266).

  • When working with Salesforce.com as an SP, OpenAM can now perform SP-initiated SSO, can use any arbitrary URL for the entityID/default endpoint, and automatically selects the last attribute from the first page as the default Federation ID (OPENAM-1232).

  • The REST authenticate command now has a parameter to specify the client IP address (OPENAM-1048).

  • OpenAM is now built with Maven. Maven artifacts continue to be uploaded to the ForgeRock Maven repository (OPENAM-739).

  • OpenAM's OATH module supports shared keys and counters (OPENAM-727).

  • You can now prevent OpenAM from caching subject evaluations for policy decisions (part of the fix for OPENAM-24).

    In most cases you do not need to turn off caching, as OpenAM now clears cache when group membership changes. Before turning off caching in production, first test the setting to ensure that the performance impact is acceptable for your deployment.

    To turn off caching, set Access Control > Realm Name > Services > Policy Configuration > Subjects Result Time to Live to 0. The equivalent ssoadm property for the iPlanetAMPolicyConfigService is iplanet-am-policy-config-subjects-result-ttl.

  • The C SDK for OpenAM has been simplified. Nightly builds are all available as ZIP files, for Linux, Solaris x86, Solaris SPARC, and Windows operating systems, for both 32- and 64-bit varieties.

    For C SDK product versions and support offerings, contact info@forgerock.com.

2.1. Security Advisories in OpenAM 11.0.3

  • Issue #201502-01: Authorization bypass via path traversal. It is possible to gain unauthorized access to policy protected resources if multi-level wildcards (“*”) are being used within policies and certain endpoints are protected with a strong policy and the attacker has access to a less protected resource.

    Severity: Critical

    For more information, see OpenAM Security Advisory #201502-01.

  • Issue #201502-02: XML Signature Wrapping in SAML 1.x. It is possible for attackers to construct SAML 1.x protocol messages with arbitrary content that will be considered valid by OpenAM’s XML Signature verification logic. Note that this mainly affects deployments where OpenAM acts as a SAML 1.x Relying Party.

    Severity: High or Critical (if OpenAM acts as a Relying Party)

    For more information, see OpenAM Security Advisory #201502-02.

  • Issue #201503-01: Cross Site Request Forgery. When “Prompt user for old password” feature is disabled (which is the default value) it is possible for a skilled attacker to change the user’s password without their knowledge.

    Severity: Critical

    For more information, see OpenAM Security Advisory #201503-01.

  • Issue #201404-01: Denial of Service vulnerability – CVE-2014-7246. In environments where more than one OpenAM server has been configured, it is possible that an authenticated attacker can construct and send a single request that triggers an infinite loop, occupying one or more instances in the deployment until the affected instances are restarted.

    Severity: Critical

    For more information, see OpenAM Security Advisory #201404-01.

  • Issue #201502-03: Authentication bypass in WS-Federation. When OpenAM acts as a WS-Federation Identity Provider and more than one realm has been configured it is possible to obtain access to Relying Parties that have been configured in a different realm than the current session’s realm.

    Severity: High

    For more information, see OpenAM Security Advisory #201502-03.

  • Issue #201502-04: Denial of Service. It is possible to cause a denial of service by accessing a specific OpenAM endpoint.

    Severity: High

    For more information, see OpenAM Security Advisory #201502-05.

  • Issue #201502-06: Unauthorized access . A bug in the policy evaluation framework makes it possible for an authenticated user to gain unauthorized access to certain resources regardless of the policy evaluation mode (self/subtree). The issue may occur if there is a policy rule defined in the format of http*://example.com:*/index.html. In this case the last wildcard may match the URI as well, not just the port number.

    Severity: High

    For more information, see OpenAM Security Advisory #201502-06.

  • Issue #201502-07: Cross Site Scripting. OpenAM is vulnerable to cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks which could lead to session hijacking or phishing.

    Oracle WebLogic Server 12c (12.1.2)

If running as a non-root user, the web application container must be able to write to its own home directory, where OpenAM stores configuration files.

3.3. Data Store Requirements

This release of OpenAM works with the following CTS data stores.

  • Embedded (using ForgeRock OpenDJ for the data store)

  • External ForgeRock OpenDJ data store

    The CTS is supported on OpenDJ versions 2.6.0 and later.

This release of OpenAM works with the following configuration data stores.

  • Embedded (using ForgeRock OpenDJ for the data store)

    When using the embedded configuration store for CTS or configuration, you must deploy OpenAM on a local file system and not on an NFS-mounted file system.

  • External ForgeRock OpenDJ data store

    ForgeRock recommends updating to the latest stable release.

  • External Oracle Unified Directory 11g or later

  • External Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition data store, version 6.3 or later

Chapter 5. OpenAM Changes & Deprecated Functionality

This chapter covers both major changes to existing functionality, and also deprecated and removed functionality.

This chapter covers both major changes to existing functionality, and also deprecated and removed functionality.

5.1. Important Changes to Functionality in OpenAM 11

The following functionality has been changed in OpenAM 11:

5.1.1. Important Changes to Existing Functionality in OpenAM 11.0.3

These changes are new in OpenAM 11.0.3.

  • Agent Group Membership Information. The agent group membership information is now stored in the agent's agentgroup attribute. When configuring agents, make sure that the referenced agent group already exists in the configuration.

    For details, see the explanation in (OPENAM-718).

  • Debug Logging Option to Decrypt SAML Assertions. OpenAM now provides a debug logging option to decrypt SAML assertions when OpenAM runs as a service provider and assertion encryption is enabled.

    To enable the feature, go to the Debug.jsp page and select the sub page where you want debugging to occur. Then, at the top of the page, click the button to turn decoding on or off. This feature operates independently of the other debug logging options on the page, so you can click cancel or back after pressing the button and the setting is still set.

    For details, see the explanation in (OPENAM-1631).

  • New goto/gotoOnFail URL Validation Service. OpenAM now provides a new "Validation Service" for URL whitelisting. OpenAM uses the Validation Service during the authentication process on the server and DAS-side for goto and gotoOnFail URLs, and during the SAML authentication process on the server and fedlet-side for Relay State URLs.

    You can set the goto/gotoOnFail URL lists on the OpenAM console via Access Control > realm > Services > Validation Service. The new property for the Validation Service is "openam-auth-valid-goto-resources."

    The Validation Service also uses a new delegation policy that grants the necessary permissions to the agent accounts, which allows them to access the valid goto URL domain lists.

    The goto URL validation logic has been extracted out to a separate class called RedirectUrlValidator, which can be used from both openam-core and openam-federation-library.

    This feature is not supported as a patch and is only available by means of a new installation or an upgrade. The upgrade wizard ensures the migration of existing valid goto and gotoOnFail domains to the new service and ensures that the new delegation policy is added to the system. (OPENAM-1773).

    Note

    You must check that the goto and gotoOnFail redirects are still working after an upgrade if your goto and gotoOnFail URL lists are not fully formed.

  • Support for Auth Context Classes Extensibility. OpenAM supports the extensibility of auth context classes as described in the SAMLv2 specification.

    Custom contexts are also now shown in console if included in the extended metadata, but this change does not include the ability to add new contexts via the console. Custom contexts still need to be loaded via ssoadm/extended metadata. (OPENAM-2238).

  • Password Reset Token Validation REST API. OpenAM now allows for the verification of password reset tokens through the REST API using the single REST API action: /json/users?_action=confirm. (OPENAM-3748).

  • Proxying Passive SAML Authentication Requests. OpenAM acting as an IdP proxy is now able to proxy passive SAML authentication requests and replay NoPassive responses. (OPENAM-4248).

  • We should no longer redistribute the RSA SecurID library. OpenAM no longer redistributes the RSA SecurID library. This means that if you are upgrading OpenAM, SecurID authentication will fail unless your obtain the library directly from RSA and place it in your classpath. (OPENAM-4380).

  • Specifying Trusted Realms using the WindowsDesktopSSO Authentication Module. The WindowsDesktopSSO authentication module now allows you to specify a list of trusted realms. When the setting is specified, Kerberos tokens issued by those realms will only be accepted. (OPENAM-4923).

  • Default Timelimit using Netscape SDK is Configurable. The default timelimit for LDAP operations performed using the Netscape SDK is now configurable (OPENAM-5311).

    To set the property, use org.forgerock.openam.ldap.default.time= <time limit in milliseconds>.

5.1.2. Important Changes to Existing Functionality in OpenAM 11.0.2

These changes are new in OpenAM 11.0.2.

  • Valid loginURIs are now set using a property that specifies a whitelist for custom login URIs so that the CDCServlet and the Distributed Authentication UI (DAS) can check login URI values against those in the whitelist.

    The property name is org.forgerock.openam.cdc.validLoginURIs. If you use custom login URIs in your deployment, add them to the whitelist, separating URIs with commas, setting org.forgerock.openam.cdc.validLoginURIs to /UI/Login,/customLoginURI, for example. You can set this property in OpenAM console under Configuration > Servers and Sites > Default Server Settings > Advanced. The default value is /UI/Login.

    The CDCServlet and DAS accept only loginURI values that match one of the values in the whitelist. OpenAM strips query strings from loginURI values before comparing them with the values in the whitelist, so only include the URIs, not query string parameters.

  • Attributes names in responses to REST API calls now preserve the original case used in the request ( OPENAM-3159). In other words, if the request asks for userName, the response includes userName. If the request asks for username, the response includes username.

    If you prefer that responses always use lower case names, set the advanced server property, org.forgerock.openam.idm.attribute.names.lower.case to true.

  • The AttributeQueryUtil class now uses the configured SP attribute mapper to map received attributes in the same way as they come as part of an assertion ( OPENAM-1655).

5.1.3. Important Changes to Existing Functionality in OpenAM 11.0.1

The following changes were listed for OpenAM 11.0.1.

  • Consistency has been improved in how OpenAM policy rules match resources. Policy rules are now interpreted more consistently in line with the documentation, and more consistently across platforms and across self and subtree modes. Before you upgrade, consider how these changes affect policy rules.

    Although the changes introduced by the improvements affect mainly edge cases, they do impact deployments relying on previous, inconsistent behaviors. The following points describe how OpenAM and policy agents behave following upgrade to OpenAM 11.0.1 or later and web policy agents 3.3.1 or later.

    • Policy agents configured to use subtree mode behave as they did prior to 3.3.0.

    • If you created your policies with OpenAM 11.0.0 and web policy agents 3.3.0, then note that trailing slashes are no longer stripped from resource names (OPENAM-3509).

      In order to match a trailing slash, your rule must end in a slash, or a slash followed by a wildcard.

    • When policy agents are configured to use self mode, trailing wildcards, except after ?, match zero or more characters.

    • When policy agents are configured to use self mode, previously a trailing wildcard after a slash, /*, matched one or more characters, whereas it now matches zero or more. This means that a resource ending in / previously would not match a rule ending in /*, whereas it now does.

      If you already have two rules to allow access, one ending in / and the other in /*, then you have nothing to do. Only the latter rule is now required.

      If however you have only rules ending in /* and intend these to deny access to resources ending in /, then add rules ending in / specifically to deny access to resources ending in /.

    • When web policy agents are configured to use self mode, trailing wildcards after ? match one or more characters. This means that a resource with a trailing ? no longer matches a rule of the form /*?*, whereas it would have matched with earlier versions.

      To match the behavior of previous releases, when using self mode with resources having empty query strings, add additional rules without trailing wildcards as in /*? before you upgrade OpenAM.

  • OpenAM now handles SAML single logout (SLO) requests differently when the user presents an invalid session (OPENAM-3437).

    In this scenario OpenAM no longer follows the RelayState without validation. To ensure that the RelayState validation succeeds, include the metaAlias request parameter when invoking the SLO JSPs.

  • For LDAP and Active Directory data store configurations the settings for the Authentication Naming Attribute (sun-idrepo-ldapv3-config-auth-naming-attr) and the LDAP Users Search Attribute (sun-idrepo-ldapv3-config-users-search-attribute) now have the same effects as they did in versions prior to 11.0.0 (OPENAM-3428).

    The Authentication Naming Attribute is now used only to find the user when performing authentication. The LDAP Users Search Attribute is used in other cases when searching for users. When upgrading from OpenAM 11.0.0, make sure these attributes are correctly set in data store configurations.

  • The fix for OPENAM-2327 adds a new PrintWriter argument to the postSingleSignOnSuccess method of the SAML2ServiceProviderAdapter class. If you use a custom Service Provider adapter, then you must update its implementation.

    The new PrintWriter argument takes the PrintWriter for presenting output. It fits between the HttpServletResponse response argument and the Object session argument.

5.1.4. Important Changes to Existing Functionality in OpenAM 11.0.0

The following changes were listed for OpenAM 11.0.0.

  • The advanced server property used to set the HTTP header name, com.sun.identity.authentication.client.ipAddressHeader, has replaced the legacy OpenSSO property com.sun.identity.session.httpClientIPHeader (OPENAM-1879).

  • Legacy naming conventions have been changed to conform to the current product name, OpenAM.

    $HOME/.openamcfg/ is the new name for $HOME/.openssocfg/. If you upgrade, OpenAM still supports use of $HOME/.openssocfg/, and does not rename the folder. For new OpenAM installs, OpenAM creates the directory with the new name, $HOME/.openamcfg/, at configuration time.

    Other files, such as the openam.war file, and paths have been modified to ensure consistency with the naming conventions.

  • OpenAM now ships with multiple .war files. You no longer have to build custom .war files for core server-only or distributed authentication UI installations for example.

  • In versions before OpenAM 10.1.0 the default root suffix DN for OpenAM configuration and profile data was dc=opensso,dc=java,dc=net. The default root suffix is now dc=openam,dc=forgerock,dc=org.

  • The fix for OPENAM-1630 changes SAML metadata signing in OpenAM to better conform with the SAML 2.0 standard.

    • Metadata for hosted entities is signed using the metadataSigningKey configured for the realm, or inherited from the global configuration for the server.

    • OpenAM now signs the EntityDescriptor element that contains child SPSSODescriptor or IDPSSODescriptor elements.

    • When importing remote entity metadata with signatures, OpenAM does not modify the signatures, but instead returns them as they were when they were imported.

    • When OpenAM imports remote entity metadata that has no signature and signed metadata is requested on export, OpenAM signs the metadata with the metadataSigningKey.

  • The default policy evaluation mode for new policy agent profiles is now self rather than subtree, in order to better scale for large numbers of policy rules.

    Upgrade does not change existing policy agent profile configurations, however. If you want to adopt the new default setting for existing policy agents, you must change the setting manually.

    To do so for Java EE policy agents, set com.sun.identity.policy.client.cacheMode=self.

    For web policy agents, set com.sun.identity.agents.config.fetch.from.root.resource=false.

  • You now specify rules for referrals in the same way as rules for policies.

    For example, with previous releases a referral rule for http://example.com/ matched everything underneath. Now you would need three rules, http://example.com/, http://example.com/*, and http://example.com/*?*. When used at the end of a rule * matches one or more characters, rather than zero or more characters.

    When you upgrade OpenAM, the upgrade tool converts existing referral rules.

  • The distributed authentication service (DAS) and cross-domain single sign-on (CDSSO) do not support the iPSPCookie/DProPCookie query string parameter to set a DProPCookie in the user-agent as a mechanism for cookie persistence. Neither DAS nor CDSSO retains iPSPCookie=yes.

5.2. Deprecated Functionality in OpenAM 11

The following functionality has been deprecated in OpenAM 11 and will likely be removed in a future release:

5.2.1. Deprecated Functionality in OpenAM 11.0.3

There are no deprecated functionality in OpenAM 11.0.3.

5.2.2. Deprecated Functionality in OpenAM 11.0.2

There are no deprecated functionality in OpenAM 11.0.2.

5.2.3. Deprecated Functionality in OpenAM 11.0.1

There are no new deprecated functionality for OpenAM 11.0.1.

5.2.4. Deprecated Functionality in OpenAM 11.0.0

The following functionality is deprecated in OpenAM 11.0.0, and is likely to be removed in a future release.

  • With the implementation of OAuth 2.0 in this release, OAuth 1.0 has been deprecated. OAuth 1.0 support was originally provided in OpenAM 9.

  • The Netscape LDAP API is to be removed from OpenAM, with OpenAM using the OpenDJ LDAP SDK instead. This affects all classes in com.sun.identity.shared.ldap.* packages.

  • OpenAM currently uses Sun Java System Application Framework (JATO). JATO is deprecated and is likely to be replaced in a future release.

  • With the implementation of the Persistent Cookie authentication module, the Core Authentication module persistent cookie options are deprecated and are likely to be removed in a future release.

  • Older REST services relying on the following end points are deprecated.

    /identity/attributes/identity/logout
    /identity/authenticate/identity/read
    /identity/create/identity/search
    /identity/delete/identity/update

    The following table shows how legacy and newer end points correspond.

    Table 5.1. REST End Points
    Deprecated in the Administration Guide URIsNewer Evolving in the Administration Guide URIs
    /identity/attributes/json/users
    /identity/authenticate/json/authenticate
    /identity/create, /identity/delete, /identity/read, /identity/search, /identity/update/json/agents, /json/groups, /json/realms, /json/users
    /identity/logout/json/sessions/?_action=logout
    N/A/json/dashboard
    N/A/json/serverinfo

    Find examples in the Developer Guide chapter on Using RESTful Web Services in the Developer's Guide in OpenAM.

    Support for the older REST services is likely to be removed in a future release in favor of the newer REST services. Older REST services will be removed only after replacement REST services are introduced.

6.2. Limitations

6.2.1. Limitations in OpenAM 11.0.3

When session failover is configured to use external OpenDJ directory servers, OpenAM must access those directory servers through an LDAP load balancer that can fail over connections from OpenAM whenever a directory server goes offline. Otherwise, sessions could continue to persist after users logout of OpenAM.

Do not run different versions of OpenAM together in the same OpenAM site.

OpenAM allows you to delete a referral policy even if policies depending on the referral still exist in the target realm. Deleting a referral policy that other policies depend on can cause problems during policy evaluation. You must therefore make sure that no policies depend on any referrals that you delete.

When deploying OpenAM components on Microsoft Windows in an IPv6 environment, you must use the Java 7 Development Kit on Windows (due to JDK-6230761, which is fixed only in Java 7).

The Database Repository type of data store is experimental and not supported for production use.

By default OpenAM does not enforce session quotas when running in Site mode without session failover. To work around this behavior, set the server configuration property openam.session.useLocalSessionsInMultiServerMode=true. You can set this property in OpenAM console under Configuration > Servers and Sites > Servers > Server Name > Advanced.

The XUI is experimental and not supported for production use. The only language locale available for the XUI at this time is US English, in the /path/to/openam/webapps/XUI/locales directory.

On hosts with pure IPv6 networks, OpenAM configuration has been seen to fail while starting the embedded OpenDJ directory server (OPENAM-3008).
