AS server

Presentation

LL::NG can be used as a CAS server. It can allow one to federate LL::NG with:

LL::NG is compatible with the CAS protocol versions 1.0, 2.0 and part of 3.0 (attributes exchange).

Configuration

Enabling CAS

In the Manager, go in General Parameters » Issuer modules » CAS and configure:

  • Activation: set to On.
  • Path: it is recommended to keep the default value (^/cas/)

Configuring the CAS Service

Then go in CAS Service to define:

  • CAS login: the session key transmitted to CAS client as the main identifier (CAS Principal)
  • CAS attributes: list of attributes that will be transmitted by default in the validate response. Keys are the name of attribute in the CAS response, values are the name of session key.
  • Access control policy: define if access control should be done on CAS service. Three options:
    • none: no access control. The CAS service will accept non-declared CAS applications and ignore access control rules. This is the default.
    • error: if user has no access, an error is shown on the portal, the user is not redirected to CAS service
    • faketicket: if the user has no access, a fake ticket is built, and the user is redirected to CAS service. Then CAS service has to show a correct error when service ticket validation will fail.
  • CAS session module name and options: choose a specific module if you do not want to mix CAS sessions and normal sessions (see why).
If CAS login is not set, it uses General Parameters » Logs » REMOTE_USER data, which is set to uid by default

Configuring CAS Applications

If an access control policy other than none is specified, applications that want to authenticate users through the CAS protocol have to be declared before LemonLDAP::NG accepts to issue service tickets for them.

Go to CAS Applications and then Add CAS Application. Give a technical name (no spaces, no special characters), like "app-example".

You can then access the configuration of this application.

Options

  • Service URL : the service (user-facing) URL of the CAS-enabled application.
  • Rule : The access control rule to enforce on this application. If left blank, access will be allowed for everyone.
If the access control policy is set to none, this rule will be ignored

Exported Attributes

You may add a list of attributes that will be transmitted in the validate response. Keys are the name of attribute in the CAS response, values are the name of session key.

The attributes defined here will completely replace any attributes you may have declared in the global CAS Service configuration. In order to re-use the global configuration, simply set this section to an empty list.
