cxf-syncope2

This project contains a number of tests that show how an Apache CXF service endpoint can authenticate and authorize a client using Apache Syncope. Earlier versions of this test-case required that you download and deploy an Apache Syncope instance with specific users + roles installed. However, the latest version creates and launches an Apache Syncope instance, and populates it with the correct data for the tests to run.

Note that this differs from the cxf-syncope project in that this project loads up a Syncope 2.0.0-SNAPSHOT instance.

  1. AuthenticationTest

This tests using Syncope as an IDM for authentication. A CXF client sends a SOAP UsernameToken to a CXF Endpoint. The CXF Endpoint has been configured (see cxf-service.xml) to validate the UsernameToken via the SyncopeUTValidator, which dispatches the username/passwords to Syncope for authentication via Syncope's REST API. A test that passes username/passwords via Basic Authentication to the CXF endpoint is also added.

  1. AuthorizationTest

This tests using Syncope as an IDM for authorization. A CXF client sends a SOAP UsernameToken to a CXF Endpoint. The CXF Endpoint has configured the SyncopeRolesInterceptor, which authenticates the Username/Password to Syncope as per the authentication test. If authentication is successful, it then gets the roles of the user and populates a CXF SecurityContext with the user's name

  • roles.

The CXF Endpoint has also configured the SimpleAuthorizingInterceptor, which reads the current Subject's roles from the SecurityContext, and requires that a user must have role "boss" to access the "doubleIt" operation ("alice" has this role, "bob" does not).
