Proxy

Authentication Users Password

Presentation

LL::NG is able to transfer (trough REST or SOAP) authentication credentials to another LL::NG portal, like a proxy.

The difference with remote authentication is that the client will never be redirect to the main LL::NG portal. This configuration is usable if you want to expose your internal SSO portal to another network (DMZ).

Configuration

External portal

In Manager, go in General Parameters > Authentication modules and choose Proxy for authentication and users.

Then, go in Proxy parameters:

  • Internal portal URL: URL of internal portal
  • Session service URL (optional): Session service URL (default: same as previous for SOAP, same with “/session/my” for REST)
  • Cookie name (optional): name of the cookie of internal portal, if different from external portal
  • Authentication level: level given to this authentication
  • Use SOAP instead of REST: use a deprecated SOAP server instead of a REST one (you must set it if internal portal version is < 2.0). In this case, “Portal URL” parameter must contains SOAP endpoint (generally http://auth.example.com/index.pl/sessions for 1.9 and earlier, http://auth.example.com/sessions for 2.0)

Internal portal

The portal must be configured to accept REST or SOAP authentication requests if you've choose to use SOAP. See: REST server plugin or SOAP session backend (deprecated).
