aws-adfs

PyPI version Travis build

The project provides command line tool - aws-adfs to ease aws cli authentication against ADFS (multi factor authentication with active directory) and

aws-adfs command line tool

Thanks to Brandond contribution - "Remove storage of credentials, in favor of storing ADFS session cookies" aws-adfs:

allows you to re-login to STS without entering credentials for an extended period of time, without having to store the user's actual credentials. It also lets an organization control the period in which a user can re-login to STS without entering credentials, by altering the ADFS session lifetime.

Thanks to Brandond contribution - "Add support for legacy aws_security_token key in credentials file" aws-adfs supports ansible by providing two keys with security token:

  • AWS_SESSION_TOKEN and
  • AWS_SECURITY_TOKEN

Thanks to Brandond contribution - "Add support for Kerberos SSO on Windows via requests_negotiate_sspi"

  • on windows os will be used Security Support Provider Interface

Compatibility

As of version 0.2.0, this tool acts on the 'default' profile unless an alternate profile name has been specified on the command line or in your environment. Previous versions acted on the 'adfs' profile by default.

MFA integration

aws-adfs integrates with:

Installation

  • user local installation

    pip install aws-adfs
    

    Please note, that you need to add $HOME/.local/bin to your PATH

  • system wide installation

    sudo pip install aws-adfs
    
  • virtualenvs

    virtualenv -p /usr/bin/python2.7 aws-adfs
    source aws-adfs/bin/activate
    pip install aws-adfs
    ...
    ...
    deactivate
    

Examples of usage

aws-adfs

  • login to your adfs host with disabled ssl verification on aws cli profile: adfs

    aws-adfs login --adfs-host=your-adfs-hostname --no-ssl-verification
    

    and verification

    aws --profile=adfs s3 ls
    
  • login to your adfs host with disabled ssl verification on specified aws cli profile: specified-profile

    aws-adfs login --profile=specified-profile --adfs-host=your-adfs-hostname --no-ssl-verification
    

    and verification

    aws --profile=specified-profile s3 ls
    
  • login to your adfs host within ansible playbook

    ---
    - name: "Auth sts aws"
      command: "aws-adfs login --adfs-host sts.example.com --env --stdout --role-arn arn:aws:iam::000123456789:role/ADMIN"
      register: sts_result
      environment:
        - username: "{{ ansible_user }}@example.com"
        - password: "{{ ansible_ssh_pass }}"
    
    - name: "Set sts facts"
      set_fact:
        sts: "{{ sts_result.stdout | from_json }}"
    
    - name: "List s3 Buckets"
      aws_s3_bucket_facts:
        aws_access_key: "{{ sts.AccessKeyId }}"
        aws_secret_key: "{{ sts.SecretAccessKey }}"
        security_token: "{{ sts.SessionToken }}"
        region: "us-east-1"
      register: buckets
    
    - name: "Print Buckets"
      debug:
        var: buckets
    
  • login to your adfs host by passing username and password credentials via a file

    aws-adfs login --adfs-host=your-adfs-hostname --authfile=/path/and/file/name
    

    Auth file should be in format of

    [profile_name]
    username = your_username
    password = your_password

Known issues

  • duo-security

    • Error: Cannot begin authentication process. The error response: {"message": "Unknown authentication method.", "stat": "FAIL"}

      Please setup preferred auth method in duo-sercurity settings (settings' -> 'My Settings & Devices').

  • in cases of trouble with lxml please install

    sudo apt-get install python-dev libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev zlib1g-dev
    
  • in cases of trouble with OSX Sierra (obsolete OpenSSL), upgrade OpenSSL. Example:

    brew upgrade openssl
    

    AND add explicit directive to .bash_profile:

    export PATH=$(brew --prefix openssl)/bin:$PATH
