dockerized-idp-testbed

Used to validate the following Unicon docker images:

More documentation is forthcoming, but it's a full working IDP, SP, and LDAP server that runs under docker-compose.

  1. Update the idp/Dockerfile with the version of the base image you want to test.
  2. Call docker-compose build and then docker-compose up (or docker-compose up -d to run as a daemon).
  3. Browse to https://idptestbed/ (after setting up an etc/hosts file entry pointing to your Docker Host IP), and you can login with staff1 and password.
  4. ctrl+c then docker-compose rm cleans everything up to try again.

Prepping for the Test

If testing the Shibboleth IdP build process locally, you'll want to make sure to docker pull centos:centos7 to ensure that you have the latest before building the IdP. This will ensure that your version will match what Docker Hub will use when it builds.

Build the IdP with docker build --tag="unicon/shibboleth-idp:<version>" .. Make sure the FROM entry in testbed's idp/Dockerfile matches the tag used in the idp build or Docker Compose will pull the wrong version when running the Testbed (see step #1).

If testing the SimpleSAMLphp build process locally, you'll want to make sure to docker pull centos:centos7 to ensure that you have the latest before building the image. This will ensure that your version will match what Docker Hub will use when it builds.

Build the application with docker build --tag="unicon/simplesamlphp:<version>" .. Make sure the FROM entry in testbed's simplesamlphp/Dockerfile matches the tag used in the ssp build or Docker Compose will pull the wrong version when running the Testbed (see step #1).

HTTP/2 support for Shibboleth IdP

HTTP/2 support can be added to Jetty by doing the following:

  1. Adding the following to the idp-http2/Dockerfile:
RUN cd /opt/shib-jetty-base \
    && /opt/jre-home/bin/java -jar ../jetty-home/start.jar --add-to-startd=http2 -Dorg.eclipse.jetty.start.ack.licenses=true
ADD shib-jetty-base/alpn.ini /opt/shib-jetty-base/start.d/

This will automatically accept the GPLv2 license used by the ALPN library utilized by Jetty.

  1. Create and populate idp-http2/shib-jetty-base/alpn.ini:
# ---------------------------------------
# Module: alpn
--module=alpn

## Overrides the order protocols are chosen by the server.
## The default order is that specified by the order of the
## modules declared in start.ini.
# jetty.alpn.protocols=h2-16,http/1.1

## Specifies what protocol to use when negotiation fails.
jetty.alpn.defaultProtocol=http/1.1

## ALPN debug logging on System.err
# jetty.alpn.debug=false
  1. Run the container(s): docker-compose -f docker-compose-http2.yml build && docker-compose -f docker-compose-http2.yml up.

  2. Test:

  • Open the browser network analyzer tools.
  • Ensure that the protocol type is shown. 1.
  • Browse to https://idptestbed/idp/. Chrome, firefox, and safari should show a protocol of "h2".
  • Try curl -k -v https://idptestbed/idp/. "HTTP/1.1" will likely be shown as curl (at least on OS X) does not have http/2 support.
