    Seam security example failure.

    Elenh Tsigka Newbie

      Hello,

      I have downloaded the most recently version of seam from CVS and I am trying to deploy the security example.
      I think I have understood what is written in the wiki (SeamAuthenticationGuide), but I continually get the following exception:

      Also I'm not sure with what I have to write in the seam-security.xml file where the realm has to be defined:

      <!-- do i need to really specify the realm here? perhaps only
       provide SeamRealm and make it extensible/pluggable into
       various target authentication mechanisms, e.g. TOMCAT, JAAS, custom, etc -->
      
       <realm className="org.jboss.seam.security.realm.JaasRealm">
       <!--param name="target">TOMCAT</param-->
       <!--param name="target">JAAS</param-->
       </realm>
      


      As there is no file named JaasRealm. I guess that this should define the security domain, but I don't understand how to deal with it.

      I'm new to JBoss - seam and even more in JAAS, and I' m really messed up with the configuration needed so as to bind JAAS to a seam application, so any help is welcomed!!!

      Thanks,
      Elenh.

          I'm not sure what's causing the exception, but seam-security.xml is currently not being used so no need to include it for the time being. That may change once page security is implemented, but for now the only configuration is in components.xml.

          I'll be working on getting this stuff complete real soon now, so I'd recommend waiting a couple of weeks if possible until the security API is more final. It should be a whole lot simpler to use and easier to configure once it's complete.

            Hello sbryzak2,
            I would like to know when you plan to release your final version of the Security API.

            Thnx,

              I'm working on it right now, but I don't think it will be ready for the next Seam release. Though having said that, it's almost in a state where it can be used - if you take a look at the security example now you'll see it's been greatly simplified. It would be great to get some feedback from people who are willing to try it out :)

                  Hi, dear Seamers!
                  I have manged to get a Login Module working which takes Users and Passwords from an EJB3. After that I use a Session bean that takes the user principal of the Faces Context's external context and authenticates the user with the seam authenticator.

                  login-module.xml:

                  <application-policy name="simple">
                   <authentication>
                   <login-module
                   code="de.livemediagroup.security.auth.MarktplatzLoginModule"
                   flag="required">
                   <module-option name="jndiEntityManagerFactory">java:/issuesEntityManagerFactory</module-option>
                   </login-module>
                   </authentication>
                   </application-policy>


                  LoginModule java file:
                  public class MarktplatzLoginModule extends UsernamePasswordLoginModule {
                  
                   private static final Log log = LogFactory
                   .getLog(MarktplatzLoginModule.class);
                  
                   private static final String JNDI_EM_CONFIG_KEY = "jndiEntityManagerFactory";
                  
                   private UserInformation user;
                  
                   @Override
                   protected String getUsersPassword() throws LoginException {

                  Note that /marktplatz is the secured area and there is not other area except for the login page, which resides inside the root folder of my web-app.

                  Now my questions:
                  1.)Am I assuming correctly, that a Session is only created when the user has logged in successfully or have I just coded a HUGE security leak for my webapp?
                  2.) I tried using a custom principal class (UserInformation implements Principal) by specifying the principalClass option for my login module and it was used throughout the login process. however in my web app I always got a SimplePrincipal object, when doing

                  FacesContext.getCurrentInstance().getExternalContext().getUserPrincipal().getClass().getName()
                  


                  . Why was my custom principal class not propagated into the external context, but SimplePrincipal used instead?

                    Almost forgot the login page :-)

                    
                    <s:form method="POST" action="j_security_check">
                     <h:panelGrid columns="2"
                     >
                    
                     <f:facet name="header">
                     <h:panelGroup>
                     <h:outputText value="Login" />
                     </h:panelGroup>
                     </f:facet>
                    
                    
                     <h:outputLabel value="Benutzername:" for="username" />
                     <t:inputText forceId="true" id="j_username" />
                    
                     <h:outputLabel value="Passwort:" for="password" />
                     <t:inputSecret forceId="true" id="j_password" />
                    
                    
                     <f:facet name="footer">
                     <h:panelGroup>
                    
                     <h:commandButton type="submit" value="Anmelden" />
                    
                     </h:panelGroup>
                     </f:facet>
                    
                     </h:panelGrid>
                     </s:form>
                    
                    


                    I use my-faces 1.1.5-snapshot but a simple html or jsp login page will do just as well.

                    P.S. please excuse the System.out.println and german text's in my code: QUICK AND DIRTY allnighter ;-)

                      Very nice, thanks! I just spent 2 days trying to do things the other way around.

                      Is your component IsUserInRole working fine?

                        You have to override the login() method in you CustomLoginModule in order to use your own principal.

                        ex:

                        public boolean login() throws LoginException
                        {
                        if (super.login())
                        {
                        caller = new CustomPrincipal(getUsername());
                        return true;
                        }
                        return false;
                        }
