Central Authentication Service - OpenKM 6.2

From OpenKM Documentation
Jump to: navigation, search

The Central Authentication Service (CAS) is a single sign-on protocol for the web. Its purpose is to permit a user to access multiple applications while providing their credentials (such as userid and password) only once. It also allows web applications to authenticate users without gaining access to a user's security credentials, such as a password. The name CAS also refers to a software package that implements this protocol.


Nota advertencia.png In lastest 6.x version has been found some problem with opensaml-2.5.1-1.jar what is included by default in OpenKM build. For more information take a look [here].

First of all you should read about how CAS works. So I recommend to read these articles:

According to the CAS documentation, it only works in secured HTTPS connections. For this reasong you need to configure HTTPS under Tomcat. Uncomment the "SSL HTTP/1.1 Connector" entry in $TOMCAT_HOME/conf/server.xml. Once you have modified it, start Tomcat and access https://localhost:8443/ to check it works fine.

Now go to the CAS web site and download the package with the server from http://www.jasig.org/cas_server_3_5_2_release. Once downloaded unpack it and copy the cas-server-3.5.2/modules/cas-server-webapp-3.5.2.war file to $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/cas-server.war (so the access to this webapp module will be easier to remember and write). Start Tomcat and check it has been deployed ok accessing to https://localhost:8443/cas-server. You can use any user to login with this unique restriction: the user and password should be the same. For example, try "foo" / "foo".

Remember these two URLs:

Spring Security configuration

In order to use CAS with Spring Security, you need to edit the pom.xml descriptor and add this dependency:

<dependency>
  <groupId>org.springframework.security</groupId>
  <artifactId>spring-security-cas</artifactId>
  <version>${spring.security.version}</version>
</dependency>

Once compiled, modify the applicationContext.xml (line 117):

<security:http access-denied-page="/unauthorized.jsp" entry-point-ref="casEntryPoint" >
<security:custom-filter position="CAS_FILTER" ref="casFilter" />

And OpenKM.xml
