Freja eID Authenticator Plugin

This project provides an opens source Freja eID Authenticator plug-in for the Curity Identity Server. This allows an administrator to add functionality to Curity which will then enable end users to login using their Freja eID credentials.

Building the Plugin

You can build the plugin by issue the command mvn package. This will produce a JAR file in the target directory, which can be installed.

Installing the Plugin

To install the plugin, copy the compiled JAR (and all of its dependencies) into the ${IDSVR_HOME}/usr/share/plugins/${pluginGroup} on each node, including the admin node. For more information about installing plugins, refer to the

Creating a Freja eID Authenticator in Curity

Configuration using the Admin GUI

To configure a new Freja eID authenticator using the Curity admin UI, do the following after logging in:

  1. Go to the Authenticators page of the authentication profile wherein the authenticator instance should be created.

  2. Click the New Authenticator button.

  3. Enter a name (e.g., freja-eid1).

  4. For the type, pick the Freja eID option.

  5. On the next page, you can define all of the standard authenticator configuration options like any previous authenticator that should run, the resulting ACR, transformers that should be executed, etc. At the bottom of the configuration page, the Freja eID-specific options can be found.

  6. Certain required configuration settings should be provided. One of these required settings is the HTTP Client setting. This is the HTTP client that will be used to communicate with the Freja eID OAuth server. You need to configure a Client SSL Keystore and a Server Trust Store before you create a Http Client.

Create Client SSL Keystore

  1. Click the Facilities button at the top-right of the screen.
  2. Next to Client SSL Keys under Crypto, click New.
  3. Enter some name (e.g., freja-eid-clientSSLKeystore).
  4. Select Upload Existing and click Next.
  5. Upload the Keystore and enter its password with an optional alias.
  6. Click Add & Commit.

Create Server Trust Store

  1. Click the Facilities button at the top-right of the screen.
  2. Next to Server Trust Stores under Crypto, click New.
  3. Enter some name (e.g., frejaEidTrustStore).
  4. Upload Public key file.
  5. Click Add.

Create Http Client

  1. Click the Facilities button at the top-right of the screen.
  2. Next to HTTP, click New.
  3. Enter some name (e.g., freja-eidClient).
  4. Enable Use Truststore toggle button.
  5. Select the keystore that you just created in the steps above from the Client Keystore dropdown.
  6. Click Apply.
  1. Back in the Freja eID authenticator instance that you started to define, select the new HTTP client from the dropdown.

  2. Select the Environment to use, either Production or Pre Production.

  3. Select the User Info Type from dropdown. It has Email or SSN as the allowed options. SSN corresponds to Username.

Once all of these changes are made, they will be staged, but not committed (i.e., not running). To make them active, click the Commit menu option in the Changes menu. Optionally enter a comment in the Deploy Changes dialogue and click OK.

Once the configuration is committed and running, the authenticator can be used like any other.
