saml2aws Build Status Build status - Windows

CLI tool which enables you to login and retrieve AWS temporary credentials using SAML with ADFS or PingFederate Identity Providers.

This is based on python code from How to Implement a General Solution for Federated API/CLI Access Using SAML 2.0.

The process goes something like this:

  • Setup an account alias, either using the default or given a name
  • Prompt user for credentials
  • Log in to Identity Provider using form based authentication
  • Build a SAML assertion containing AWS roles
  • Exchange the role and SAML assertion with AWS STS service to get a temporary set of credentials
  • Save these creds to an aws profile named "saml"

Requirements

  • Identity Provider
    • ADFS (2.x or 3.x)
    • PingFederate + PingId
    • Okta + (Duo, SMS, TOTP)
    • KeyCloak + (TOTP)
  • AWS SAML Provider configured

Caveats

Aside from Okta, most of the providers in this project are using screen scraping to log users into SAML, this isn't ideal and hopefully vendors make this easier in the future. In addition to this there are some things you need to know:

  1. AWS only permits session tokens being issued with a duration of up to 3600 seconds (1 hour), this is constrained by the STS AssumeRoleWithSAML API call and DurationSeconds field.
  2. Every SAML provider is different, the login process, MFA support is pluggable and therefore some work may be needed to integrate with your identity server

Install

OSX

If you're on OSX you can install saml2aws using homebrew!

brew tap versent/homebrew-taps
brew install saml2aws

Windows

If you're on Windows you can install saml2aws using chocolatey!

choco install saml2aws
saml2aws --version

Dependency Setup

Install the AWS CLI see https://docs.aws.amazon.com/cli/latest/userguide/installing.html, in our case we are using homebrew on OSX.

brew install awscli

Configure an empty default profile with your region of choice, note the credentials will be overwritten when you first login and are supplied to unsure ~/.aws/credentials file is created.

$ aws configure
AWS Access Key ID [None]: test
AWS Secret Access Key [None]: test
Default region name [None]: us-west-2
Default output format [None]:

      --version                Show application version.
      --verbose                Enable verbose logging
  -i, --provider=PROVIDER      This flag it is obsolete see https://github.com/Versent/saml2aws#adding-idp-accounts.
  -a, --idp-account="default"  The name of the configured IDP account
      --idp-provider=IDP-PROVIDER
                               The configured IDP provider
      --mfa="Auto"             The name of the mfa
  -s, --skip-verify            Skip verification of server certificate.
      --url=URL                The URL of the SAML IDP server used to login.
      --username=USERNAME      The username used to login.
      --role=ROLE              The ARN of the role to assume.
      --aws-urn=AWS-URN        The URN used by SAML when you login.
      --skip-prompt            Skip prompting for parameters during login.

Commands:
  help [<command>...]
    Show help.


  configure
    Configure a new IDP account.


  login [<flags>]
    Login to a SAML 2.0 IDP and convert the SAML assertion to an STS token.

        --password=PASSWORD  The password used to login.
    -p, --profile="saml"     The AWS profile to save the temporary credentials

  exec [<flags>] [<command>...]
    Exec the supplied command with env vars from STS token.

        --password=PASSWORD  The password used to login.
    -p, --profile="saml"     The AWS profile to save the temporary credentials

Configuring IDP Accounts

This is the new way of adding IDP provider accounts, it enables you to have named accounts with whatever settings you like and supports having one default account which is used if you omit the account flag. This replaces the --provider flag and old configuration file in 1.x.

To add a default IdP account to saml2aws just run the following command and follow the prompts.

$ saml2aws configure

Please choose the provider you would like to use:

[ 0 ]:  ADFS

[ 1 ]:  ADFS2

[ 2 ]:  JumpCloud

[ 3 ]:  KeyCloak

[ 4 ]:  Okta

[ 5 ]:  Ping

Selection: 3

URL []: https://id.example.com/auth/realms/master/protocol/saml/clients/amazon-aws
Username []: mark@wolfe.id.au

Configuration saved for IDP account: default

Then to login using this account.

saml2aws login

You can also add named accounts, below is an example where I am setting up an account under the wolfeidau alias, again just follow the prompts.

saml2aws configure -a wolfeidau

You can also configure the account alias without prompts.

saml2aws configure -a wolfeidau --idp-provider KeyCloak --username mark@wolfe.id.au \
  --url https://keycloak.wolfe.id.au/auth/realms/master/protocol/saml/clients/amazon-aws --skip-prompt

Then your ready to use saml2aws.

Example

Log into a service (without MFA).

$ saml2aws login
Using IDP Account default to access Ping https://id.example.com
To use saved password just hit enter.
Username [mark.wolfe@example.com]:
Password: ************

Authenticating as mark.wolfe@example.com ...
