Introduction to the Federated Identity Appliance Deployer Tool
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This tool is a set of scripts that automates the deployment and configuration
of software used to participate with your SAML2 or eduroam identity federation 
services.


Configured deployment profiles listed alphabetically are:
 
 CAF - Canadian Access Federation  ( http://www.canarie.ca/en/caf-service/about )
 SWAMID - Swedish Academic Identity ( http://www.swamid.se/ )


Each federation may have a different deployment profile and supported 
configurations. What follows are the generic steps to follow to do an installation.

Please consult ~/docs/README.<federation_name> for federation 
specific deployment instructions.


Supported Platforms 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This installer script is intended to be used on a clean install of:
 - Ubuntu Server 12.04   (SWAMID only)
 - CentOS 6.5 'minimal'  (SWAMID or CAF only)

It *MAY* run on pre-existing installations of these OS', but steps in the installer
presume the installed services are 'alone' on the machine and may modify your
existing host settings.



Configuration
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This script requires a configuration file to run. The configuration file is 
generated using a local HTML based configuration builder to construct it. 
This technique helps avoid storing sensitive data like passwords anywhere.

Configuration builders are federation specific and can be launched from:

for CAF - ~/www/appconfig/CAF/index.html
for SWAMID - ~/www/appconfig/SWAMID/index.html

The configuration builder uses javascript to perform basic validation and 
has the ability to import existing configuration files avoiding retyping
information.

For best configuration builder experience, we strongly recommend using Firefox 
or Google Chrome. Using IE for the configuration builder is discouraged.


General Installation Steps
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

These steps expect that the implementer will perform backups or snapshots as necessary.

1. Review your federation specific post install steps
2. Determine your deployment style (dev? production?) 
3. Create a configuration from your federations' configuration builder
4. save configuration as 'config' in this directory on your server
5. run the script ./deploy_idp.sh
6. answer any inline questions (self signed cert? password creation for keystores?)
7. perform any post installation steps per ~/docs/README.<federation_name>


Default behaviour of this tool
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The default behaviour of this tool is to deploy a test instance for any service.

This configuration can also be used as the base for the production deployment
with post installation steps per your respective federation.

Per service defaults:

eduroam (RADIUS):
	- uses MS-CHAPv2 to authenticate any user present
	- uses self signed CA and server certificate

Shibboleth (SAML2):
	- uses self signed server certificate
	- has attribute release policy for testshib.org
	- blank passwords autogenerate for SSL keystores
	- optional anonymized usage reporting in FTICKS formats


Please see: ~/docs/README.<federation_name> for federation specific usage
