            Regex using sed or Perl to comment XML Block
            Asked 2021-Dec-04 at 00:37

            I'm trying to comment a section at web.xml inside openAM using only sed or perl -pi (the only tools available to me).

            So, Ill copy here:

            You should use XML-aware tools to process XML. You mention Perl, there are several XML-handling modules available.

            But, if you insist, try the following at your own risk:



            PropertyException after wildfly update: property CharacterEscapeHandler must be an instance of type CharacterEscapeHandler

            Some time ago I implemented a CustomCharacterEscapeHandler and it worked fine up-to Wildfly-18.0.1. Now when updating to Wildfly 19 or higher I get the following exception:

            2. Aligning the JAXB libraries of my application with the wildfly JAXB libs

            Background and some details for the 2nd solution:

            The JAXB used in wildfly 19 has been updated (cp. 1,2). Since nothing worked I started debugging it. First the working version on wildfly 18 and then the non working version. The corresponding code is :



            OpenAM ITfoxtec Saml2 invalid signature response?
            Asked 2021-Oct-26 at 09:03

            I'm trying to integrate OpenAM Saml SSO to my .net 5 application. ITfoxtec.Saml2 is used to handle the authentication on the SP. When trying to login, a valid post samlResponse is send. But when validating the response, I get following exception.

            The ITfoxtec Identity Saml2 package do not read the IdP signing certificate in the EntityDescriptor/KeyDescriptor element, the element is not supported. The IdP certificate is read in the EntityDescriptor/IDPSSODescriptor/KeyDescriptor element.

            OAuth2 authorization code flow: spring-security does not accept the issued access_token
            Asked 2021-Oct-01 at 08:00

            I am learning the OAuth2 authorization code flow.

            • I have my own Authorization Server (AS) which is OpenAM 7.1.
            • The Client is a simple Spring-Boot web application with a static HTML page, I use Spring-Security to protect the HTML page and control the Oauth2 flow.

            I think that my Authorization Server configuration is correct because AS produces the access_token at the end when I simulate the communication with CURL. But somehow Spring-Security does not want to accept the issued and validated access token. So I think that my Spring-Security configuration is not correct.

            I tried to configure Spring-Security in many different ways, but unfortunately, none of them was working. Maybe I need to implement the steps that I execute with CURL with Spring-Security, but maybe I just missed a configuration line.

            This is the last step of my CURL chain where AS gives me the access token (exchange the authorization code for an access token):



            Answered 2021-Oct-01 at 08:00

            I notice two issues in the code you have shared.

            The first is that you may be confusing an OAuth 2.0 resource server and an OAuth 2.0 client.
            The application running on is configured as an OAuth 2.0 client.
            However, you are making a request to, providing a bearer token and asking for a resource.
            The client will not validate the bearer token. In this scenario it seems like you are treating the application as if it were a resource server.

            If you are looking to create a resource server application, you can see the full documentation in the Spring Security reference.

            The second issue is the behaviour you described when accessing the client in the browser.
            The problem here is customising redirect-uri:

            When doing this you override the default redirect URI, which is /login/oauth2/callback/{registrationId}.

            This URI is special because it prompts the OAuth2LoginAuthenticationFilter to process the request, attempt to authenticate the user and create the OAuth2AuthenticationToken.

            When you customise redirect URI, the OAuth2LoginAuthenticationFilter is not invoked and the application does not know if the user is authenticated.



            bash variable as a command: echo the command before execution and save the result to a variable
            Asked 2021-Sep-24 at 22:18

            I am executing a chain of curl commands:

            1. I need to echo the command before the execution.
            2. Execute the command and save the result to a bash variable.
            3. Get values from the result of the execution and execute the next curl with that values.

            This is how it looks like:

            Using Nullish Coaleshing Operator
            Asked 2021-Aug-29 at 19:06

            The program goes through the days and prints the opening and closing hours for each day. On saturday the situation is different, there is no PM times. So by using ?? I thought the program could switch to the second sentence as on Saturday {openPM} and {closePM} are undefined,but it does not work.



            Answered 2021-Aug-29 at 08:55

            Your first template string cannot be null thus your nullish operator can never be in action. So in your case, you probably don't want to use ?? but the ternary operator ? : to decide which string template to output

            How to make OpenAM to return jwt-token with simple username and password authentication
            Asked 2021-Feb-03 at 12:41

            My problem is that I want to configure Openam so that it returns a JWT-token when I use The simplest user name / password authentication. By default, it returns tokenId. But in my case, I need only JWT-token. I am using this endpoint for authentication:




            Answered 2021-Jan-31 at 16:51

            OpenAM only issues a JWT when you are using 'stateless' / client based SSO session. If you need a standardised JWT, then you need to configure OpenAM as OIDC provider.



            How to create a web policy agent in OpenAM given that the server URL has a not fully qualified hostname?
            Asked 2020-Dec-18 at 12:08

            Question: How to create a web policy agent in OpenAM given that the server URL, which OpenAM runs on, has a not fully qualified hostname?

            Initial situation: For a Prove of concept (POC), I emulate a server structure using docker. I have an apache webserver as a resource server (docker container), an OpenAM docker container for the access management, and a flask web app running in a third container as the client. I configured OpenAM via the GUI. Sofar my flask app can authenticate, request, and retrieve access tokens using simple requests as specified here. However now I also want to protect the apache resource server. For the start without flask and simply by installing an OpenAM Web Policy Agent on the apache webserver and configuring a web policy agent profile in OpenAM following this official ForgeRock guide.

            Problem: When configuring the agent profile in OpenAM using the GUI the OpenAM container's domain name http://openam:8080/openam is not accepted as a valid server URL.

            If I use instead e.g. http://openam.local:8080/openam the error does not show.

            What I tried so far:

            1. I added an Nginx container that functions as a reverse proxy and used it to change the container's hostnames to .local. Now I can reach the containers e.g. via http://openam.local:8080/openam and http://apache.local:8080. However, when I now access the OpenAM GUI using http://openam.local:8080/openam, enter the default passwords, and press Create Configuration the configuration fails with the following message:
            2. Unable to solve the problem from (1) I figured that I recall the Nginx setup and instead try to configure the agent profile using the command line - in the hope that the above error Hostname of server URL is not fully qualified is restricted to the GUI. For the setup via the command line there existed the easy command ./ssoadm create-agent ... as descript here. But ssoadm was deprecated in favor of Amster and I am unable to figure out how to configure the agent policy using Amster.

            That's a bug in OpenAM console / service validation, it's tracked as OPENAM-16073

            However these times there are some OpenAM forks. I would encourage those people to rename their product / project as it's quite confusing.

            OpenAM (Open Source Edition) 13.0 and later does not properly manage sessions, which allows remote authenticated attackers to change the security questions and reset the login password via unspecified vectors.
            Open redirect vulnerability in OpenAM (Open Source Edition) 13.0 allows remote attackers to redirect users to arbitrary web sites and conduct phishing attacks via a specially crafted page.
            OpenAM (Open Source Edition) allows an attacker to bypass authentication and access unauthorized contents via unspecified vectors. Note that this vulnerability affects OpenAM (Open Source Edition) implementations configured as SAML 2.0IdP, and switches authentication methods based on AuthnContext requests sent from the service provider.

            Install openam

            The OpenAM build process and dependencies are managed by Maven. At this time, OpenAM and related products are not registered in the Maven repository, so it is necessary to build all projects until the Maven local repository is ready. Please, clone the following projects and run mvn clean install in order. In addition, don't forget to execute the commands as a non-root user. Finally, Maven builds the binary in openam/openam-server/target. The file name format is OpenAM-<version>.war.
