Identity & Service providers

Description

Soffid Identity Federation addon helps administrators to manage an Identity Federation. With Soffid you can manage the whole federation security configuration, increasing the security while reducing the federation management costs. Soffid can also act as a Service Provider, serving identities to any SAML capable application server.

The main supported standard is SAML. SAML allows to completely detach the identification process from web applications,  known as Service Providers. With SAML, identification is performed by specialized servers known as Identity Providers.  Additionaly, some other, less secure, but some times convenient protocols like OAuth (Open Authorization) and OpenID-Connect protocols are supported. Elder protocols like Openid (do not confuse with OpenID-Connect) are deprecated and no  longer supported.

You can visit the Introduction page to find more information about the federation members.

Federation members

1. Entity Group

2. Identity Provider

3. Service Provider

4. Virtual Identity Provider

Entity Group

Description

An entity group is just like a folder that allows you to manage different kinds of federation members. One of the most common ways to group federation members is by trust level.

When you create an entity group, the Identity Providers and the Service Providers records will be displayed. Then you could add identities and services selecting the proper record.

Standard attributes

  • Entity Group: name of the group.
  • Url Metadata: will be the URL of an external entity group when the entity group was esternal.
  • Providers: by default, it creates two groups, an identity provider and a service provider.


Identity Provider

Description

An identity provider (abbreviated IdP or IDP) is a system entity that creates, maintains, and manages identity information for principals and also provides authentication services to relying applications within a federation or distributed network.

An Identity Provider is responsible for identifying users. Also, it is responsible for giving service providers information regarding the identified user.

Soffid allows you to configure different identity providers, you could choose the best option for you by selecting the IdP type:

  • Soffid IdP: identifies the identity provider implemented by Soffid. Soffid IdP implements both OpenID-Connect and SAML.
  • External SAML IdP: is used to identity providers not implemented by Soffid. For instance, it could be an ADFS (Active Directory Federation Services) or Shibboleth identity provider.
  • OpenID-Connect: is used for third-party identity providers, like ADFS.
  • Facebook: if you select that option, oAuth2 will be used to identify Facebook users. You will need to register Soffid as a Facebook application to use it.
  • Google: if you select that option OpenID-Connect will be used to identify Google users. You will need to register Soffid as a Google application to use it.
  • Linkedin: if you select that option, oAuth2 will be used to identify Linkedin users. You will need to register Soffid as a Linkedin application to use it.

To create an identity provider, it is advisable to install a dedicated sync server. It can be configured as a proxy sync server as it does not need direct access to the Soffid database. Instead, it will connect to main sync server to get users and federation information.

For more information about how to config a dedicated sync server you can visit the Install Sync server page.

Standard attributes

The fields for each IdP type are detailed below:

Soffid IdP

Identification
  • publicID: unique name to identify the identity provider. The name has to be the same that the Public ID of the Soffid Identity Provider agent.
  • Name: friendly user name.
  • Organization: company name of the external IdP.
  • Contact: email address of the external IdP.
Service Configuration
  • Metadata: the Metadata for an Identity Provider defines how this Identity Provider delivers its service:

    • The public portion of it's signing and encrypting keys.
    • The SAML protocols does it support.
    • The URL of each SAML protocol endpoint.
    • Contact information.

The Metadata is the information that any application need to use the IdP. That is an XML file that contains the public encryption keys and the services provided

Leave it blank as Soffid IdP will fulfill it for you.

The metadata will be created when the network data and SAML Security data. Restart the sync server will be necessary to fulfill the Metadata.

Network
  • Host name: public hostname that will be used by users and service providers. The full qualified name should be used.
  • Standard port: TCP port number used by the identity provider. By default, TLS will be used (default 1443). 
  • TLS PublicKey:  there are three available options
    • Leave in blank and Soffid IdP will generate a self-signed certificate.
    • Clicking on the Generates public/private key button, a new private key pair will be generated. Once the private key pair is generated, you could generate a certificate request file, also known as PKCS#10 or CSR file. The certificate authority will be able to create a certificate for you using this certificate request. Once you have created the public/private key, you could run other new functions:
      • Change public/private key: allows you to change the public/private key generated previously.
      • Delete public/private key: allows you to delete the public/private key generated previously.
      • Generate PKCS10: generates a PKCS10 file (Certification request standard).

Server certificate management: there are two options for certificate management. You can visit the Server certificate management page for more information.

SAML Security
  • PublicKey
    • Clicking on the Generates public / private key button, a new private key pair will be generated. Once the private key pair is generated, you could generate a certificate request file, also known as PKC#10 or CSR file. The certificate authority will be able to create a certificate for you using this certificate request. Once you have created the public/private key, you could run other new functions:
      • Change public/private key: allows you to change the public/private key generated previously.
      • Delete public/private key: allows you to delete the public/private key generated previously.

  • SSO Cookie name: name of the cookie that will keep the session id, you can change the name. This SSO cookie is not really needed, as the identity provider will store a session cookie to track the SSO session. This SSO cookie is needed in two circumstances:
    • When the identity provider is restarted, the session cookie is lost. This SSO Cookie allows the identity provider to restart the lost session.
    • When you have more than one identity provider instance, this cookie allows all the identity providers to handle the session as if only was one identity provider. The SSO cookie can be allocated by any identity provider, and it will be accepted by any other one.
  • SSO Cookie domain: is needed when you have more than one identity provider instance and they are using different host names. If all the identity providers are serving the same virtual host name, the SSO Cookie domain will be needed.

Service Provider

Definition

The Service Providers are standard applications that rely on Identity Providers to let the users log in.

Join federation

To join the federation, the service provider management team must deliver its "Metadata". The service provider Metadata describes how the service providers behave:

  • Which security algorithms does it support.
  • The public portion of its signing and encrypting keys.
  • The SAML protocol does it support.
  • The URL of each SAML protocol endpoint.
  • Contact information.

Standard attributes

The standard attributes depend on the Service provider type.

SAML

To enable External SAML protocol you can visit the Authentication page. Also, on that page you could download the metadata XML file.

Identification
  • Identifier: public name of the service provider. It must be unique 
  • Name: friendly user name or brief description.
Service configuration
  • Metadata: you must provide the identity provider metadata. You can either copy it from the Soffid Identity Provider page, or instruct the service provider to download the federation metadata by itself.

To publish the federation members' metadata, the main sync server exports the member's metadata at the path /SAML/metadata.xml. Thus, if your sync server is listening at soffid1.your.domain, you can get the whole federation metadata document from:

https://soffid1.your.domain:760/SAML/metadata.xml


After some seconds, up to five minutes, every federation member will notice any change.
