    Unable to get private credentials

    valsaraj viswanathan Master



      I have added private key into private credentials during login but unable to retrieve it later. I will share the code snippets.


      Code that adds prvate key during login:

      MyPrivateKey myPrivateKey = myKeyRing.getMyPrivateKey();



      Code that retrieves private key later:

      Set<MyPrivateKey> myPrivateKeys = subject.getPrivateCredentials(MyPrivateKey.class); // this code fails to return private key with class MyPrivateKey


      But the following code returns a private key of class type Object and unable to cast to MyPrivateKey:

      Set<Object> privateKeys = subject.getPrivateCredentials();


      When I compared added and retrieved private key of type Object, they are same. I am wondering why this code fails, Set<MyPrivateKey> myPrivateKeys = subject.getPrivateCredentials(MyPrivateKey.class); But this code worked when I deployed in Jboss 4.2.2 GA.


      Please share if you have idea.


      Thanks in advance!

          Do we need to configure any kind of policy permission in JBoss?

            Principal: lt7

            Principal: Roles(members:appAccountUserManager)

            Public Credential: org.app.security.key.UserPublicKey@3a5e3bf4

            Private Credential: org.app.security.key.MyPrivateKey@b22e1c

          In this log,   Principal: lt7 is what I added from login module. Also, the private credential can be seen which I am not able to retrieve. When compared to old JBoss version, it is same except Principal: org.wildfly.extension.undertow.security.AccountImpl$AccountPrincipal@1a3af which is an addition in WildFly.

            When I added password as String, it worked.

            String password = "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx";

            subject.getPrivateCredentials().add(password );


            I am able to get this using, subject.getPrivateCredentials(String.class);


            So I am wondering why Set<MyPrivateKey> myPrivateKeys = subject.getPrivateCredentials(MyPrivateKey.class); not worked. Is this because it is a user defined class? Do we need to add such classes to be able to retrieve them?
