Authentication system

The Authentication system is based on the custom Authentication Provider of the Symfony Cookbook

The following chapter demonstrates how to create a custom authentication provider for WSSE authentication. The security protocol for WSSE provides several security benefits:

  • Username / Password encryption
  • Safe guarding against replay attacks
  • No web server configuration required

WSSE is very useful for the securing of web services, may they be SOAP or REST.

I used the exact same authentication system.

Client Side specifics

On the client side, I've inspired my code from Angular official documentation about HttpInterceptor, allowing me to send the WSS UserToken on each HTTP request when token is available. Examples usually shows how to send the Authorization header.

The difference there is that I send the token, username and user digest in the HTTP Header X-WSSE.

Servers are configured for developments purposes. Do not deploy this project on production as is. You should have a look to Symfony deployment documentation for the Back-end and the Angular deployment documentation for the Front-End part.


You can use this template and adapt it to your needs.
