Key and Certificate Management/Rollover in OIF/STS

As part of the Federation and WS-Trust protocol interaction, OIF/OSTS will need to use PKI Keys and Certificates for non repudiation and integrity via the use of digital signatures and confidentiality via digital encryption.

In this article, I discuss about the Keys and Certificates management, including how to:

  • Generate new keys and certificates
  • Configure OIF and OSTS to use the new keys and certificates
  • Implement a key rollover on a per partner basis
  • Distribute the new certificates to partners

OIF/OSTS Service Information

OIF and OSTS are two products designed to provide Federation capabilities across security domains:
  • Cross domain SSO for browser based Web SSO flows
  • Cross domain Web Services Security (WSS) for SOAP clients and servers via the WS-Trust protocol

Federation between services is based on trust which is established by exchanging

  • X.509 certificates used for sign/verify and encrypt/decrypt the Federation messages
  • Locations of the Federation services
  • SAML 2.0 Metadata if supported by the partners, when SAML 2.0 Federation SSO is used

In this article, I will discuss about the various kinds of information one has to know in order to be able to set up a Federation agreement between OIF and remote partners, including:

  • How to enable OIF/OSTS services
  • SAML/OpenID Identifiers for OIF/OSTS
  • SAML 2.0 Metadata
  • Certificates
  • Service endpoints

Oracle Identity Federation 11.1.2.2.0 has been released!

Oracle Identity Federation (OIF) has been released as part of Oracle Fusion Middleware 11gR2 Release 2 (11.1.2.2.0)!

This new version of OIF provides Identity Provider (IdP) and Service Provider (SP), a.k.a. Relying Party (RP), support for the SAML 2.0, SAML 1.1 and OpenID 2.0 protocols.

The admin interfaces have been revamped to provide a comprehensive and easy way for administrators to manage Federation partnership on a day-to-day basis: while the UI allows the basic administration of Federation settings, which would cover most of the daily use cases, the OIF WLST command scripting tools allow advanced configuration of the Federation servers and its partners.

In this article, I will discuss about the features included in OIF 11.1.2.2.0:

  • Native Integration with OAM
  • Protocols
  • Additional Features
