OmniAuth SAML

A generic SAML strategy for OmniAuth.

https://github.com/PracticallyGreen/omniauth-saml

Requirements

Usage

Use the SAML strategy as a middleware in your application:

require 'omniauth'
use OmniAuth::Strategies::SAML,
  :assertion_consumer_service_url => "consumer_service_url",
  :issuer                         => "issuer",
  :idp_sso_target_url             => "idp_sso_target_url",
  :idp_cert                       => "-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----\n...-----END CERTIFICATE-----",
  :idp_cert_fingerprint           => "E7:91:B2:E1:...",
  :name_identifier_format         => "urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:1.1:nameid-format:emailAddress"

or in your Rails application:

in Gemfile:

gem 'omniauth-saml'

and in config/initializers/omniauth.rb:

Rails.application.config.middleware.use OmniAuth::Builder do
  provider :saml,
    :assertion_consumer_service_url => "consumer_service_url",
    :issuer                         => "rails-application",
    :idp_sso_target_url             => "idp_sso_target_url",
    :idp_cert                       => "-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----\n...-----END CERTIFICATE-----",
    :idp_cert_fingerprint           => "E7:91:B2:E1:...",
    :name_identifier_format         => "urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:1.1:nameid-format:emailAddress"
end

For IdP-initiated SSO, users should directly access the IdP SSO target URL. Set the href of your application's login link to the value of idp_sso_target_url. For SP-initiated SSO, link to /auth/saml.

Metadata

To ease the configuration of the SAML SP on IdP side, the required SAML ACS metadata that is needed for the IdP configuration can be retrieved from 'http://yourhost.com/auth/saml/metadata'. Just give this URL to your IdP administrator and he'll be happy..

Options

  • :assertion_consumer_service_url - The URL at which the SAML assertion should be received. With OmniAuth this is typically http://example.com/auth/saml/callback. Required.

  • :issuer - The name of your application. Some identity providers might need this to establish the identity of the service provider requesting the login. Required.

  • :idp_sso_target_url - The URL to which the authentication request should be sent. This would be on the identity provider. Required.

  • :idp_cert - The identity provider's certificate in PEM format. Takes precedence over the fingerprint option below. This option or :idp_cert_fingerprint must be present.

  • :idp_cert_fingerprint - The SHA1 fingerprint of the certificate, e.g. "90:CC:16:F0:8D:...". This is provided from the identity provider when setting up the relationship. This option or :idp_cert must be present.

  • :name_identifier_format - Describes the format of the username required by this application. If you need the email address, use "urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:1.1:nameid-format:emailAddress". See http://docs.oasis-open.org/security/saml/v2.0/saml-core-2.0-os.pdf section 8.3 for other options. Note that the identity provider might not support all options. Used during SP-initiated SSO. Optional.

  • See the Onelogin::Saml::Settings class in the Ruby SAML gem for additional supported options.
