Processing Incoming Attributes with OIF / SP

When OIF acts as a Service Provider, it:

  • Validates the incoming SSO response from the IdP
  • Maps the SSO response to an LDAP user record
  • Extracts the user identifier and optional attributes contained in the SSO response and stores them in the OAM session.

Those attributes stored in the OAM session can later be used:

  • In Authorization Policies, where the conditions/rules will evaluate the attributes in the OAM session
  • As Policy Responses to provide those attributes to web applications protected by WebGate/OAM, as HTTP Headers or cookies

In this article, I will discuss how OIF acting as a Service Provider can be configured to:

  • Process attributes contained in an incoming SAML Assertion or OpenID SSO Response to map the names of incoming attributes to local names.
  • Request attributes from the OP via the OpenID protocol (SAML does not provide a way for SPs at runtime to request attributes from the IdP during a Federation SSO operation)

Enjoy the reading!
