Shibboleth3 as IdP

Step 1: Setup Shibboleth3 as Identity Provider

  • In conf/idp.properties, uncomment and set 'idp.encryption.optional' to true.
       eg. idp.encryption.optional = true
  • In conf/metadata-providers.xml, configure Service Provider like below.
  • <MetadataProvider xmlns:samlmd="urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:metadata"
      id="miniOrangeInLineEntity" xsi:type="InlineMetadataProvider" sortKey="1">
      <samlmd:EntityDescriptor ID="entity" entityID="<SP-EntityID / Issuer from Service Provider Info tab in plugin.>"
        validUntil="2020-09-06T04:13:32Z">
        <samlmd:SPSSODescriptor AuthnRequestsSigned="false" WantAssertionsSigned="true"
        protocolSupportEnumeration="urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:protocol">
          <samlmd:NameIDFormat>
            urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:1.1:nameid-format:emailAddress
          </samlmd:NameIDFormat>
        <samlmd:AssertionConsumerService Binding="urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:bindings:HTTP-POST"
        Location="<ACS (AssertionConsumerService) URL from Step1 of the plugin under Identity Provider Tab.>"
          index="1" />
        </samlmd:SPSSODescriptor>
        </samlmd:EntityDescriptor>
    </MetadataProvider>
  • In conf/saml-nameid.properties, uncomment and set default NameID as Email Address like this
  • idp.nameid.saml2.default=urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:1.1:nameid-format:emailAddress
  • In conf/saml-nameid-xml, search for shibboleth.SAML2NameIDGenerators. Uncomment the shibboleth.SAML2AttributeSourcedGenerator bean and comment all other ref beans.
  • <!-- SAML 2 NameID Generation -->
    <util:list id="shibboleth.SAML2NameIDGenerators">
      <!--<ref bean="shibboleth.SAML2TransientGenerator" /> -->
      <!-->ref bean="shibboleth.SAML2PersistentGenerator" /> -->
      <bean parent="shibboleth.SAML2AttributeSourcedGenerator"
      p:format="urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:1.1:nameid-format:emailAddress"
      p:attributeSourceIds="#{ {'email'} }" />
    </util:list>
  • Make sure you have defined AttributeDefinition in conf/attribute-resolver.xml.
  • <!-- Note: AttributeDefinitionid must be same as what you provided in attributeSourceIds in conf/saml-nameid.xml -->
    <resolver:AttributeDefinitionxsi:type="ad:Simple" id="email" sourceAttributeID="mail">
      <resolver:Dependency ref="ldapConnector" />
      <resolver:AttributeEncoderxsi:type="enc:SAML2String" name="email" friendlyName="email" />
    </resolver:AttributeDefinition >

    <resolver:DataConnector id="ldapConnector" xsi:type="dc:LDAPDirectory" ldapURL="%{idp.authn.LDAP.ldapURL}"
      baseDN="%{idp.authn.LDAP.baseDN}" principal="%{idp.authn.LDAP.bindDN}"
      principalCredential="%{idp.authn.LDAP.bindDNCredential}">
      <dc:FilterTemplate>
        <!-- Define you User Search Filter here -->
        <![CDATA[ (&(objectclass=*)(cn=$requestContext.principalName)) ]]>
      </dc:FilterTemplate>

      <dc:ReturnAttributes>*</dc:ReturnAttributes>
    </resolver:DataConnector>
  • Make sure you have AttributeFilterPolicy defined in conf/attribute-filter.xml.
  • <afp:AttributeFilterPolicy id="ldapAttributes">
    <afp:PolicyRequirementRulexsi:type="basic:ANY"/>
      <afp:AttributeRuleattributeID="email">
        <afp:PermitValueRulexsi:type="basic:ANY"/>
      </afp:AttributeRule>
    </afp:AttributeFilterPolicy>
  • Restart the Shibboleth server.
  • You need to configure these endpoints in the miniOrange SAML plugin.
  • IDP Entity ID https://<your_domain>/idp/shibboleth
    Single Login URL https://<your_domain>/idp/profile/SAML2/Redirect/SSO
    Single Logout URL https://<your_domain>/idp/shibboleth
    X.509 Certificate The public key certificate of your Shibboleth server
