This project shows how to use the new CXF plugin of Apache Fediz 1.2.0 to authenticate and authorize clients of a JAX-RS service using WS-Federation. It consists of two submodules:

a) double-it:

This is a war containing the service. The service is a JAX-RS service, with a single GET method which returns the doubled number. The method is secured with a @RolesAllowed annotation, meaning that only a user in roles "User", "Admin", or "Manager" can access the service. This is enforced via CXF's SecureAnnotationsInterceptor.

In addition, the FedizRedirectBindingFilter of the new CXF plugin in Fediz 1.2.0 is used to redirect the user to an IdP for authentication, and subsequently parse the response + set up a security context. The user can then access the service repeatedly without having to re-authenticate.

b) fediz-sso-tomcat:

This module deploys the IdP + STS from Fediz in Apache Tomcat. It then takes the "double-it" war above and also deployed it in Tomcat.

Finally, it uses Htmlunit to make an invocation on the service, and checks that access is granted to the service. Alternatively, you can comment the @Ignore annotation of the "testInBrowser" method, and copy the printed out URL into a browser to test the service directly (user credentials: "alice/ecila").
