Oracle STS – OnBehalfOf SAML Token Validation

There have been requests to my previous blog post on how to validate a SAML token issued by Oracle STS.

Here is the SOAP request format that should be fired on Oracle STS to validate the token:

<soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="" xmlns:trus="">
<wsse:Security soap:mustUnderstand="true" xmlns:wsse="">
<wsse:UsernameToken wsu:Id="UsernameToken-1" xmlns:wsu="">
<wsse:Password Type="">Welcome1</wsse:Password>
<wst:RequestSecurityToken Context="Id-0001313145021190-00000000008d4682-1" xmlns:wst="" xmlns:wsse="">
<wsse:KeyIdentifier ValueType="">id-McjucPrvkxXpY6m3w-8iFtvmEYQ-</wsse:KeyIdentifier>

You get SecurityTokenReference from SAML token issued by STS. You need to use it for further validation, like above SOAP request.

This returns you with the response:



Hope this helps.

SAML2.0 Weblogic Sender-Vouches Configuration & POC

June 4, 2016 8 comments

This blog post intends to highlight on the SAML2.0 configuration for web services in Weblogic. It details step-by-step guide to configure weblogic domains with a sample test client to test the web service. We will look into SAML2.0 Sender Vouches web service configuration.

What is Sender Vouches?

Sender-Vouches – The asserting party (different from the subject) vouches for the verification of the subject. The receiver must have a trust relationship with the asserting party.

Sender Vouches
1. Rather than authenticating with the STS, here, Client authenticates with an intermediate service.
2. The intermediary gets the security token from the STS.
3. Then it signs the request and sends to the RP.
4. RP trusts both the intermediary and the STS. So, it validates both of them.

Here are the steps:

  • Configure STS (Weblogic Domain – Certificate used is wssipsts
  • Configure Weblogic domain for weblogic web service with SAML2.0 Sender Vouches policy – Bob is used for this
  • Create a stand alone client that which retrieves token from STS and fires a request to web service with SAML1.1 token retrieved from STS – Alice is used for this

Configure STS:

  1. Create a weblogic domain here ‘am using weblogic 10.3.5
  2. We need to configure SSL for this domain
  3. While creating the domain I configure weblogic to use 6001 for Non-SSL and 6002 for SSL port. Let domain name be STSDomain.
  4. Now go to http://localhost:6001/console
  5. Got to STSDomain –> Environment –> Admin Server –> Keystores
    • Select Custom Identity and Custom Trust
    • Custom Identity Keystore: F:\Oracle\Middleware\user_projects\domains\STSDomain\certs\oasis.jks
    • Type: JKS
    • password: password
    • Custom Trust Keystore: F:\Oracle\Middleware\user_projects\domains\STSDomain\certs\cacerts
    • Type: JKS
    • password: changeit
    • Save and restart server if it asks to do so
  6. Got to STSDomain –> Environment –> Admin Server –>SSL
    • Private Key Alias: WssIPSTS
    • Private Key passphrase: password
    • Save and restart if asked to do so
  7. Now build the web service and deploy it in the domain. Check after successful deployment whether you can open the WSDL url or not.
  8. STSDomain–>Security Realms –>myrealm
  9. We need to configure only ‘Credential Mapper’ here. Credential Mapper basically responsible for Issuing SAML tokens. Where as identity Asserter are responsible for validating the SAML tokens. So we will configure Credential Mapper for STS and Identity Asserter for webservice
  10. Go to Providers –> Credential Mapping
  11. Add PKI Credential Mapper
    • In Provider Specific tab, Keystore Provider: SUN
    • Keystore Type: JKS
    • Keystore file name: F:\Oracle\Middleware\user_projects\domains\STSDomain\certs\oasis.jks
    • Keystore pass phrase: password
    • Use resource hierarchy and Initator group names check boxes should be selected.
    • Click on save and restart if asked to do so
  12. Add SAML2CredentialMapper
    • In Configuration –> Provider specific tab, Issuer URI:
    • Name Qualifier:
    • Default time to live: 120
    • offset: 0
    • Webservice Assertion Signing key alias: WssIPSTS
    • Key pass phrase: password
    • Select check box ‘Generate Attributes’
    • Save and go to Management tab in the same section
    • New–>New Webservice Service Provider Partner
    • Add sender vouches relying party: Sendervouches:/echoservicesaml2/EchoServiceSAML2
    • Make sure to select ‘Enabled’ check box
    • Give description
    • Audience URIs:  target:*:http://HYD-69ZRV01-L:7001/echoservicesaml2
    • Generate Attributes checkbox to be selected
    • Select confirmation methods as ‘Sender-Vouches’
    • Save and restart the server if asked to do so
  13. That’s all the configuration from STS side.

Configure Weblogic Webservice:

  1. Create a weblogic domain here ‘am using weblogic 10.3.5
  2. We do not need to configure SSL for this domain
  3. While creating domain configure weblogic to use 7001 port and no SSL port required. Let the domain name be ‘WebserviceDomain’
  4. Login to weblogic console.
  5. WebserviceDomain–>servers–>Adminserver–>keystore
    • Custom Identity and Custom Trust store
    • Custom Identity Keystore: F:\Oracle\Middleware\user_projects\domains\WebserviceDomain\certs\oasis.jks
    • Key type: JKS
    • password: password
    • Trust Keystore: F:\Oracle\Middleware\user_projects\domains\WebserviceDomain\certs\cacerts
    • Type: JKS
    • password: changeit
    • Save and restart the server if asked to do so.
    • SSL
    • Private key alias: Bob
    • password: password
    • Save
  6. Build and deploy the weblogic web service. The scripts and the webservice code is given below.
  7. Go to security realm–>myrealm–>Providers–>Authentication
    • Add SAMLAuthenticator
    • Make control Flag as ‘SUFFICIENT’
    • Make control Flag of Default Authenticator too as ‘SUFFICIENT’
    • (optional step) Also in Default Authenticator’s ‘Provider Specific’ Enable password digest, minimum password length as 1 and save.
    • (optional step) In Default Identity Asserter’s –> Common. chose Active Types ‘wsse:passworddigest’ and ‘x.509’ send it to right and click on save.
    • (optional step) In Defaul Identity Asserter –> Provider Specific. Default Username as @, Mapper attribute type as ‘CN’, select ‘use default user name mapper’ and click on Save button. Restart if asked to do so
  8. Got to security realm–>myrealm–>Providers–> Authentication
    • Add SAML2IdentityAsserterV
    • Go to Management –> New –> New Webservice Identity Provider Partner
    • Name: Sendervouches:/echoservicesaml2/EchoServiceSAML2
    • Chose Enabled
    • Audience URIs: target:*:/echoservicesaml2
    • Issuer URI:
    • Virtual User selected
    • Confirmation Method: Sender-Vouches
    • Process Attributes selected
    • Save and restart if asked to do so.
  9. That’s all the configuration of web service.

Client Testing:

  1. Open a command prompt window
  2. Run setWLSEnv.cmd from that command window to set the paths
  3. ant runsaml2
  4. That’s all for now…

Java Sample Client – Oracle Access Manager API – OAMAuthnCookie Validator

June 4, 2016 2 comments

Here is a sample Java Client code that validates the OAMAuthnCookie token. It performs 2 steps:

  1. Checks whether passed in OAMAuthnCookie token is valid and not expired
  2. Retrieves username for given OAMAuthnCookie token

OAMAuthnCookie can be found inside cookies of a browser. In the below Java client you need to put the value of OAMAuthnCookie inside the getUserNameFromToken() sessionToken.


package com.oam.test;

import java.util.Hashtable;

 * and to extract userid for given OAM Session token

SAML2 Assertion is not yet valid (NotBefore condition)

My current setup:

Oracle STS is running on Machine 1 and Oracle Weblogic Web service is running on Machine 2

When I wrote a client to invoke SAML2 token from STS on Machine 1 and use the token to call SAML2 web service on weblogic running on Machine 2. My client constantly kept throwing following error:

Root Cause:
Oracle STS returned token appropriately, but the request fails on the weblogic server.

After a bit of fight we could figure out that the Machine 2 time is 2 minutes behind Machine 1. When we adjusted the times (synced) of Machine 1 and Machine 2 things worked smoothly there after.

Hope this tip helps some one there.

Configuration settings are unavailable because /Farm_IDMDomain/asinst_1/oid2 is down


If you see an error in the Enterprise Manager console as shown below, follow the solution that might solve the issue.

Information: Configuration settings are unavailable because /Farm_<domain>/<asinst>/oid1 is down.


  • Restart with opmnctl stopall and opmnctl startall
  • Restart weblogic admin
  • Start weblogic managed server wls_ods1
  • Start weblogic managed server wls_oif1
  • opmnctl stopproc ias-component=EMAGENT
  • opmnctl startproc ias-component=EMAGENT
  • Now try in /em console this time you should see the details

Oracle Internet Directory (OID) Synchronization with Active Directory for Enterprise User Security – Part 1

This blog post outlines the step-by-step configurations to be made at Active Directory (AD) side and on the Oracle Internet Directory (OID) for the synchronization of identities from Active Directory to OID. Intentionally I split it into multiple blog posts for the configuration…

Following are the salient features of this integration:

  • Synchronization is only from Active Directory to OID i.e. changes made at OID will not be reflected on Active Directory
  • Create of a new user in the Active Directory would be reflected on to OID
  • For the synchronization to start, Administrator has to trigger a change password request for all the users of interest

High-Level Configurations to be made on Active Directory:

  • Install Oracle Password Filter, with comes with Oracle Identity Management 11gR2 Patch.
  • If AD machine is 64 bit then go into Utils –> adpwdfilter –> 64 bit –>setup.exe
  • If AD machine is 32 bit then go into Utils –> adpwdfilter –> setup.exe
  • Create SSL connection between OID and AD, with OID as server and AD as client. Add certificate of OID into AD’s trust store

High-Level Configuration to be made on OID:

  • Configure a new OID instance (don’t disturb the default OID instance that runs on 3060)
  • Configure SSL Authentication Server Mode:2 for the newly created OID instance
  • Configure synchronization profile using Oracle Directory Integration Platform
  • Test the synchronization profile to see that uid and userpassword attributes are replicated at OID

High-Level design diagram for Active Directory – Oracle Internet Directory one-way synchronization:

Next blog post is about how to configure new OID Instance
