InQueue Federation Interim Configuration and Policy Guidelines

- -
These are interim guidelines intended to allow InQueue to operate as -a federation before full production requirements are known.
- -

1. Introduction to InQueue

-

InQueue is a simple federation designed to support - interoperability between origin and target sites as organizations - become familiarized with Shibboleth and the federated trust model. It - will provide basic federated services including maintenance of a WAYF - and trust and metadata files. It will give a best effort to ensuring - that all sites admitted are representative of their organizations. It - will define a basic set of attributes to aid - interoperability.

- -

InQueue is not intended to be a production federation, - and organizations will be expected to progress from InQueue to an - appropriate federation. Using InQueue for production services is not - advised due to the lack of a formal application and membership - process, and the lowered level of assurance that a site is indeed - representative of a community this brings. Additionally, InQueue - recognizes many CA's, some of which do not maintain a CP/CPS or - rigorous issuance standards.

- -

2. Joining InQueue

-

Sites may join InQueue as an origin, as a target, or - submit both sets of information to join as both a target and an - origin. Origins must assert before joining that all attributes sent - to targets in the federation to the best of their knowledge accurately - represent information about the authenticated individual accessing the - target resource. Targets must agree to dispose of all received - attributes properly by not mis-using them, aggregating them, or - sharing them with other organizations.

- -

InQueue will distribute a set of trusted CA roots from - whom certificates for architectural components are acceptible for - InQueue membership. Additionally, sites with certificates not rooted - in one of these trusted roots may have these certificates added to the - appropriate trust file. Targets must have a certificate signed by an - acceptible CA. The list of certificate authorities recognized by - InQueue is:

- -
-
* The certificates issued by this CA will expire - fairly quickly and should only be used for testing.
-
- -

To join InQueue, origins must submit a basic application to - shib-support@internet2.edu containing the following - information:

- - - -

To join InQueue, targets must submit a basic application to - shib-support@internet2.edu containing the following - information:

- - - -

3. Configuration for Using InQueue

- -

Once your site is accepted into and added to InQueue, - the following configuration parameters must be entered to ensure - interoperability and compliance with federation guidelines. Consult - the Shibboleth Deploy Guides for further information on these fields - and on origin.properties and shibboleth.ini.

- -

Origins:

- -
edu.internet2.middleware.shibboleth.hs.HandleServlet.siteName -

Must be populated with a URI that will - be assigned by InQueue when you are accepted into the - federation.

edu.internet2.middleware.shibboleth.audiences -

This field must contain InQueue's urn:mace:inqueue URI, and may contain other federation URIs as well.

-
- -

Targets:

- -
wayfURL -

This field must be set to InQueue's simple WAYF at https://wayf.internet2.edu/InQueue/WAYF.

[policies] -

This section must contain InQueue = urn:mace:inqueue, and may - contain other federation name/value pairs as well.

siterefresh -

The URL for the metadata.xml file for InQueue is http://wayf.internet2.edu/InQueue/sites.xml. - The URL for the trust.xml - file for InQueue is http://wayf.internet2.edu/InQueue/trust.xml. - The signing certificate used for these files may be found at - http://wayf.internet2.edu/InQueue/internet2.pem - and has the fingerprint b4 42 6c 1e - 8b 7d 8e b3 68 03 00 e4 c4 57 dd 74 89 f8 9a 80.

4. Attributes

-

In order to facilitate basic interoperability, the InQueue - Federation is promulgating a set of Attribute definitions for use by its - members. If a Federation member sends or receives an Attribute Assertion - containing the InQueue policy uri and referencing one of the listed attributes, - then the syntax and semantics of the associated attribute value MUST conform - to the definitions specified in the EduPerson specification 2002/10 -

- - - -

5. Sample Target

-

A sample shibboleth target - is available for testing newly installed origin sites.

InQueue Federation Policy and Configuration Guidelines

+ +

1. Introduction to InQueue

+

+ The InQueue Federation, operated by Internet2, is designed for + organizations that are becoming familiar with the Shibboleth + software package and the federated trust model. It is also + available as a temporary alternative to sites for which no suitable + production-level federation exists. InQueue provides the basic + services needed for a federation using Shibboleth:

+ + + +

Participating in InQueue permits an organization to learn about the + Shibboleth software via the experience of multi-party federated access, + while integrating its services into the organization's procedures and + policies.

+ +

The InQueue federation is specifically not intended to support + production-level end-user access to protected resources. Organizations + operating target sites are strongly discouraged from making sensitive or + valuable resources available via the Federation. Specifically, certificate + authorities with no level of assurance may be used to issue certificates + to participating sites, and therefore none of the interactions can be + trusted.

+
+ +

2. InQueue Policies

+ +

2.1 Participation

+ +

An organization may join InQueue as an origin, as a + target, or both. + Participants are expected to be authorized representatives of + their organization. Internet2 reserves the right to make final + decisions about participation in the Federation.

+ +

InQueue is intended to serve as a primary federation + for an organization only during the period an + organization is learning about Shibboleth and federated + operations. Upon completion of this period, the + organization is expected to join a Federation (or some + other management solution) that meets its long-term + operational needs.

+ +

By joining InQueue, an organization agrees that the + Federation can list their name on the Federation web + site as a member of the Federation.

+ +

In joining InQueue, an organization will make a good + faith effort to maintain a web page describing their use + of Shibboleth. This page will be linked from the + Federation member list.

+ +
+ +

2.2 Data management

+ +

+ By participating, origins agree that all attributes sent + to targets in the Federation to the best of their knowledge accurately + represent information about the authenticated individual accessing the + target resource.

+ +

Targets agree to dispose of all received + attributes properly by not mis-using them, aggregating them, or + sharing them with other organizations.

+ +

2.3 Security management

+ +

InQueue distributes a set of root certificates for + issuers from which server certificates may be obtained to identify + InQueue server components. Both targets and origins should have a + certificate obtained from one of the authorities below. Additional + certificate authorities may be recognized as necessary to support + use of both free and common commercial certificates for testing. + The list of certificate authorities used by InQueue is:

+ + +
+ +

2.4 Attributes

+

The InQueue + Federation specifies a set of attribute definitions to support basic + attribute-based authorization.

+
    +
  1. Attribute assertions issued or received by InQueue members including eduPerson attributes should conform to the syntax and semantics defined by the eduPerson 2003/12 specification. + +
      +
    • urn:mace:dir:attribute-def:eduPersonEntitlement
    • +
    • urn:mace:dir:attribute-def:eduPersonPrincipalName
    • +
    • urn:mace:dir:attribute-def:eduPersonScopedAffiliation
    • +
  2. +
  3. If a Federation member sends or receives an Attribute Assertion + containing the InQueue policy uri and referencing one of the listed + attributes, + the syntax and semantics of the associated attribute value should + conform + to the definitions specified in the relevant IETF RFCs. + +
      +
    • cn +
    • sn +
    • telephoneNumber +
    • title +
    • initials +
    • description +
    • carLicense +
    • departmentNumber +
    • displayName +
    • employeeNumber +
    • employeeType +
    • preferredLanguage +
    • manager +
    • roomNumber +
    • seeAlso +
    • facsimileTelephoneNumber +
    • street +
    • postOfficeBox +
    • postalCode +
    • st +
    • givenName +
    • l +
    • businessCategory +
    • ou +
    • physicalDeliveryOfficeName +
    +
  4. If a Federation member sends or receives an eduPersonEntitlement Attribute Assertion + containing the InQueue policy uri and containing one of the listed + values, + the syntax and semantics of the associated attribute value should + conform + to these definitions + +
      +
    • urn:mace:incommon:entitlement:common:1 +

      The person possesses an eduPersonAffiliation value of faculty, staff, or student, or qualifies as a "library walk-in". + +

    +
+
+ +

3. Joining InQueue

+ +

To join InQueue, origins submit a request to + inqueue-support@internet2.edu containing the following + information:

+ +
+
+ +

To join InQueue, targets must submit a basic application to + inqueue-support@internet2.edu containing the following + information:

+ +
+ +
+ +

4. Configuration for Using InQueue

+ +

Once your site is accepted into and added to InQueue, + the following configuration parameters must be entered to ensure + interoperability and compliance with federation guidelines. Consult + the Shibboleth Deploy Guides for further information on these fields + and on origin.xml and shibboleth.xml.

+ +
4.a. Origins:
+

The following steps must be undertaken to configure a + standard Shibboleth origin configuration to use InQueue. Some + steps may vary or may be completed already depending on how + origin.xml has already been + modified.

+
    +
  1. ShibbolethOriginConfig must be modified as follows: +
      +
    • providerId must be + populated with a URI that will be assigned by InQueue + when you are accepted into the federation.
    • +
    • defaultRelyingParty + should be changed to urn:mace:inqueue.
    • +
    • Ensure that AAUrl has + been changed to reflect the value sent in with the + application.
    • +
  2. +
  3. Uncomment the InQueue RelyingParty element. If the default providerId as specified in ShibbolethOriginConfig is not the one supplied by InQueue, modify the providerId to match the value assigned by InQueue to this origin.
  4. +
  5. A new KeyStoreResolver or FileResolver element must be added pointing to the private key and certificate for use by this origin. See section 4.b of the origin deploy guide for further information.
  6. +
  7. Uncomment the FederationProvider element for InQueue.
  8. +
  9. OpenSSL must also be configured to use the + appropriate set of trusted roots for the issuance of SSL + certificates that Shibboleth trusts. For InQueue, this list may + be obtained from http://wayf.internet2.edu/InQueue/ca-bundle.crt. + This list should then be copied for mod_ssl, which will typically need to + be to /conf/ssl.crt/ca-bundle.crt. This + list of CA's is not rigorous nor secure and may contain + CA's which have no level of assurance or are questionable.
  10. +
+
+ +
4.b. Targets:
+ +

The following steps must be undertaken to configure a + standard Shibboleth target configuration to use InQueue. Some + steps may vary or may be completed already depending on how + shibboleth.xml has already been + modified. This guide covers modification of the default Applications element from localhost + operation to InQueue operation for simplicity's sake.

+
    +
  1. The providerId attribute of the Applications element should be changed to the InQueue-assigned value.
  2. +
  3. Ensure that the Sessions element's wayfURL is https://wayf.internet2.edu/InQueue/WAYF.
  4. +
  5. Uncomment the InQueue RelyingParty element within the CredentialsUse element.
  6. +
  7. Uncomment the FileResolver element with a Id of inqueuecreds. The key path, key password, and certificate path should be modified to match new credentials generated according to section 4.c of the target deploy guide.
  8. +
+
+ +
4.c. Refreshing Federation Metadata:
+

Shibboleth 1.2 includes new metadata both for origin sites + and for target sites. The origin has the metadatatool and the target uses + the siterefresh tool to maintain + locally cached versions of various files. Once your site + is accepted into the InQueue federation, it is necessary + that you periodically update the federation's metadata. + This metadata includes information used to identify and + authenticate InQueue sites. This should be frequently run + by adding it to a crontab to + ensure that the data is fresh.

+ +

InQueue's metadata is digitally signed, so the first step is to obtain the InQueue signing certificate. + It can be downloaded from http://wayf.internet2.edu/InQueue/inqueue.pem + and has a fingerprint of:

+

b4 42 6c 1e 8b 7d 8e b3 68 03 00 e4 c4 57 dd 74 89 f8 9a 80.

+ +

The following commands can be used to obtain the federation's metadata for a Shibboleth 1.2 target:

+
+ $ cd /opt/shibboleth/etc/shibboleth
+ $ ../../bin/siterefresh --url http://wayf.internet2.edu/InQueue/IQ-sites.xml --out IQ-sites.xml --cert inqueue.pem
+ $ ../../bin/siterefresh --url http://wayf.internet2.edu/InQueue/IQ-trust.xml --out IQ-trust.xml --cert inqueue.pem
+
+ +

The origin metadatatool's operation is greatly simplified + if a keystore file is downloaded from https://wayf.internet2.edu/InQueue/inqueue.jks + and placed in the same directory as metadatatool. After this has been + done, the following commands can be used to obtain the + federation's metadata for a Shibboleth origin:

+
metadatatool -i http://wayf.internet2.edu/InQueue/IQ-sites.xml -o IQ-sites.xml -k inqueue.jks -a inqueue +
+
+ +

5. Testing

+

A sample shibboleth target + is available for testing newly installed origin sites. New targets can make use of a sample origin, + which is listed as "Example State University" on the InQueue WAYF ( Username: demo / Password: demo ).
