    Unable to get JAAS to authenticate

    Matthew Robinson Newbie

      Hello.

      I am running JBOSS 4.0.1 and trying to secure my CMP EJBs. These EJBs are behind Session Beans compliant with the 'Business Delegate' and 'Session Facade' J2EE Patterns.

      I have read the JBOSS JAAS documentation in the JBOSS4Guide:
      http://docs.jboss.org/jbossas/jboss4guide/r2/html/ch8.chapter.html#ch8
      And I have read the JAAS section of the JBoss 3.2 Deployment and Adminstration book (Meeraj Kunnumpurath).

      However I am still unable to get JAAS to work properly. I am unable to access my methods even though I supply correct credentials!

      I wish to use the Database Server Login Module to login to the Role 'Admin', which I have placed on every 'set' method of every CMP EJB via the @ejb.permission XDoclet Tag (All other methods are tagged with Admin,Guest):

       * @ejb.interface-method
       * view-type="both"
       *
       * @ejb.permission
       * role-name="Admin"
      

      These tags produce the following the ejb-jar.xml file (this is the finder method I am trying to access):
       <method-permission >
       <description>[CDATA[description not supported yet by ejbdoclet]]</description>
       <role-name>Admin</role-name>
       <method >
       <ejb-name>AdminUser</ejb-name>
       <method-name>findByEmail</method-name>
       <method-params>
       <method-param>java.lang.String</method-param>
       </method-params>
       </method>
       </method-permission>
      

      In my Oracle 9i database I have a table: ADMIN_USER and ADMIN_ROLE_TYPE which together expose the information I need: The ADMIN_USER record has a reference to a ADMIN_ROLE_TYPE via a Foreign Key constraint:
      CREATE TABLE ADMIN_USER (
       USER_ID NUMBER (10) NOT NULL,
       USER_EMAIL VARCHAR2 (50) NOT NULL,
       USER_PASSWORD VARCHAR2 (200) NOT NULL,
       USER_FIRSTNAME VARCHAR2 (50) NOT NULL,
       USER_LASTNAME VARCHAR2 (50) NOT NULL,
       ADMIN_ROLE_TYPE_ID NUMBER (10) NOT NULL,
       USER_GROUP VARCHAR2 (20) NOT NULL,
      .
      .
      .
       CONSTRAINT PK_ADMIN_USER
       PRIMARY KEY ( USER_ID ) ) ;
      
      ALTER TABLE ADMIN_USER ADD CONSTRAINT FK_ADMIN_TYPE
       FOREIGN KEY (ADMIN_ROLE_TYPE_ID)
       REFERENCES JBOSS.ADMIN_ROLE_TYPE (ROLE_ID) ;
      
      CREATE TABLE ADMIN_ROLE_TYPE (
       ROLE_ID NUMBER (10) NOT NULL,
       NAME VARCHAR2 (50) NOT NULL,
       CREATED_DATE DATE DEFAULT SYSDATE NOT NULL,
       MODIFIED_DATE DATE DEFAULT NULL,
       CREATED_USER VARCHAR2 (50) DEFAULT USER NOT NULL,
       MODIFIED_USER VARCHAR2 (50) DEFAULT NULL,
       DELETED_USER VARCHAR2 (50) DEFAULT NULL,
       DELETED_DATE DATE DEFAULT NULL,
       CONSTRAINT PK_ADMIN_ROLE_TYPE
       PRIMARY KEY ( ROLE_ID ) ) ;
      

      My login-config.xml contains (note the queries are based on the JBOSS 4 Guide examples adapted to my schema):
       <!-- Security domain -->
       <application-policy name = "MattsDomain">
       <authentication>
       <login-module code = "org.jboss.security.auth.spi.DatabaseServerLoginModule" flag = "required">
       <module-option name = "unauthenticatedIdentity">guest</module-option>
       <module-option name = "dsJndiName">java:/OracleDS</module-option>
       <module-option name = "principalsQuery">SELECT USER_PASSWORD FROM ADMIN_USER WHERE USER_EMAIL=?</module-option>
       <module-option name = "rolesQuery">SELECT r.NAME, 'Admin' FROM ADMIN_ROLE_TYPE r, ADMIN_USER a WHERE a.USER_EMAIL=? AND r.ROLE_ID = a.ADMIN_ROLE_TYPE_ID</module-option>
       </login-module>
       </authentication>
       </application-policy>
      

      The jboss.xml file has been tweaked with the following:
       <security-domain>java:/jaas/MattsDomain</security-domain>
       <unauthenticated-principal>Guest</unauthenticated-principal>
      

      And here is the client code in the SecurityFacade which attempts to invoke the finder method:
       public AdminUserTO authenticate( AdminUserTO user )throws DatastoreException {
       try {
       UsernamePasswordHandler handler = new UsernamePasswordHandler( user.getUserEmail(), user.getUserPassword().toCharArray() );
       LoginContext lc = new LoginContext( "MattsDomain" , handler );
       lc.login();
       System.out.println(lc.getSubject());
       System.out.println("Caller Principal " + ctx.getCallerPrincipal());
       AdminUserLocalHome adminUserLocalHome = getAdminUserHome();
       if ( adminUserLocalHome == null )
       throw new DatastoreException( "S002", "Admin User Local Home not found in Service Locator", null );
       Collection usersByEmail = adminUserLocalHome.findByEmail( user.getUserEmail() );
      .
      .
      .
      

      My test client attempts to invoke the SecurityFacade method via a Business Delegate Facade thus:
       AdminUserTO me = adminBean.authenticate( "matt@hotmail.com", "test" );
      

      Finally the output, including the debug output you see in the example above:
      09:14:39,598 INFO [STDOUT] Subject:
       Principal: matt@hotmail.com
       Principal: Admin(members:Admin)

      .
      .
      


      What am I Missing here?

      Any help much appreciated!
