Connect2id server 15.7

This Connect2id server release enabled support for issue of DPoP bound access tokens, for the JWT as well as the SAML 2.0 bearer grants. With the next major 16.0 release, the server is also going to support the dpop_bound_access_tokens client metadata parameter, so that a client can be required to always use DPoP in its registration.

This release also updates two of the Connect2id server SPIs.

The SPI for ID token issue events receives a new IDTokenIssueEvent.getLocalSubject() method to access the local (system) end-user ID, which can be useful in cases when the ID token sub (subject) is a pairwise identifier.

The SPI for customising token responses receives new methods to access the OpenID claims source and a generic JWT signer.

More information about this new release can be found in the customary notes below.

If you are an authentication provider and have come across Microsoft's May announcement to allow the plugin of External Authentication Method (EAM) providers into Entra ID, check out our new guide how to achieve this with the Connect2id server. If there is sufficient feedback and demand we'll consider creating an official maintained Connect2id server plugin for Entra EAM.

Connect2id server 15.6 introduces a new plugin interface for authentication and consent events

The Connect2id server received a new plugin interface (SPI) for receiving an event every time a user authenticates and submits their consent at the authorisation endpoint. The events can be used for purposes such as audit logging and resolving disputes. Contextual information about the user authentication can be obtained from the referenced ID token claims set (if an ID token is issued) as well as the referenced subject session. Information about the user consent can be obtained from the referenced authorised scope, claim names and data.

This release also relaxes the back-channel logout notifications policy for Connect2id server deployments configured with issuer aliasing in the PERSISTED_GRANT_ISOLATION mode, allowing delivery of notifications in response to logout requests. Notification delivery in response to session expiration remains blocked in this mode.

Finally, this release resolves four issues, three related to SPI plugins.

Release notes

15.6 (2024-05-10)

Summary

  • New plugin interface (Service Provider Interface, or SPI) for listening to end-user authentication and consent events at the authorisation endpoint of the Connect2id server.

  • Enables delivery of back-channel logout notifications in the issuer aliasing mode "isolation" in response to end-user logout at the logout session API.

Web API

  • /logout-sessions/rest/v1/

    • Delivers back-channel logout notifications when OpenID provider / OAuth 2.0 server issuer aliasing mode PERSISTED_GRANT_ISOLATION is configured. Previously this mode caused the delivery of back-channel logout notifications resulting from logout session API calls to be blocked.
  • /session-store/rest/v2/

    • Delivers back-channel logout notifications in response to end-session (DELETE) calls when OpenID provider / OAuth 2.0 server issuer aliasing mode PERSISTED_GRANT_ISOLATION is configured. Previously this mode caused the delivery of back-channel logout notifications resulting from end-session API calls to be blocked.

SPI

  • Upgrades the Connect2id server SDK to com.nimbusds:c2id-server-sdk:5.4

    • New SubjectAuthAndConsentEventListener SPI for listening to subject authentication and consent events.

      For clients using the code flow (response_type=code), the event is dispatched when the client submits a valid authorisation code at the token endpoint of the Connect2id server.

      For clients using an implicit (response_type=token, response_type=id_token, id_token token) or hybrid flow (response_type=code id_token, response_type=code token, response_type=code id_token token), the event is dispatched when the request at the authorisation endpoint of the Connect2id server successfully completes.

Resolved issues

  • Fixes StackOverflowException in SPI calls that use the com.nimbusds.openid. connect.provider.spi.internal.sessionstore.SubjectAuthentication.getAMRList method (issue server/993).

  • Revises the OpenID Connect Back-Channel Logout 1.0 policy when issuer alias mode PERSISTED_GRANT_ISOLATION is configured. Back-channel logout notifications were previously blocked in this mode. Starting with this release notifications resulting from API-originating logout / end-session requests will be delivered. Note that the delivery of back-channel logout notifications on subject session expiration remains blocked since subject sessions do not record issuer alias information (issue server/992).

  • Prevents Connect2id server startup when a given OpenID claim is advertised as supported by two or more enabled claims sources. Disabled claims sources are not checked. The exception will be logged at FATAL level using the OP7004 code, detailing the name of the claim and the claim source (issue server/994).

  • Compressed (zip=DEFLATE) JWE request objects (JARs) with cipher texts of compressed plain text that are too large must be rejected to conserve CPU and memory resources on decompression. When JWE DEFLATE compression is utilised a limit of 100K cipher text characters is enforced. Note that all request objects passed by URL (request_uri) are already being limited to 50 KBytes in size (issue jose-jwt/545).

  • Support serialisation of null valued JWT top-level claims returned by the encode and advancedEncode methods of SelfContainedAccessTokenClaimsCodec SPI implementations. Previously such JWT claims were ignored and serialised (issue authz-store/234).

Dependency changes

  • Upgrades to com.nimbusds:c2id-server-sdk:5.4

  • Updates to com.nimbusds:oauth2-oidc-sdk:11.10.3

  • Upgrades to com.nimbusds:nimbus-jose-jwt:9.39

  • Updates to com.nimbusds:c2id-server-jwkset:1.30.2

  • Upgrades to com.nimbusds:oauth2-authz-store:26.5.1

Connect2id server 15.5

This Connect2id server release updates the plugin interface for sourcing user claims (attributes). It also adds a special configuration to mitigate false token revocation positives due to timing issues.

Consented scope hint in the claims source SPI

The Connect2id server comes with a plugin interface for sourcing user claims, such as contact details, profile information and entitlements. These claims are then fed into UserInfo responses, ID tokens or access tokens, subject to consent.

To aid decisions in claims source plugins, the Connect2id server is now going to make the associated consented scope available with each request to the claims source. If you implement your own SPI plugin the scope can be obtained via the new ClaimsSourceRequestContext.getScope method. If you use a web hook it will appear in the optional scope parameter, which must first be enabled.

Example request:

POST /claims-source HTTP/1.1
Host: www.example.com
Content-Type: application/json; charset=UTF-8
Authorization: Bearer ztucZS1ZyFKgh0tUEruUtiSTXhnexmd6

{
  "iss"              : "https://c2id.com",
  "sub"              : "alice",
  "claims"           : [ "email",
                         "email_verified",
                         "name",
                         "given_name",
                         "family_name" ],
  "scope"            : [ "openid",
                         "email",
                         "profile",
                         "offline" ],
  "claims_transport" : "userinfo"
}

More information how the scope gets determined for a particular claims request can be found in the ClaimsSourceRequestContext JavaDoc and the release notes below.

Note that the scope is intended only as a hint in plugin logic. Claims will continue getting sourced by providing an explicit list of their names, regardless of the consented scope value. That's because end-users may not consent to all claims that expand from a certain scope value. Claims can also be requested individually, with a scope value like email or profile, using the claims OpenID authentication request parameter.

Revocation timestamp check bias

The Connect2id server provides an API where clients, end-user access and their tokens can be revoked. POSTed revocations are given a timestamp and recorded in the server's database. Whenever a token is inspected, the server checks for any recorded revocations after the token issue time (iat). If a revocation is found the token is considered invalid.

After a typical revocation the end-user must log in and give their consent again in order for the client application to regain access. In special scenarios where this is done by an automated process the token revocation and subsequent new token issue may occur at the same second. Due to the second resolution of token and revocation timestamps, this can lead to timing issues, for example in clusters where the clocks of the computers are out of sync. To mitigate such issues deployments can adjust the "bite" point of revocation time checks with a special new configuration:

authzStore.revocation.checkBias

Its documentation has hints when and how to use it. If in doubt leave it at its default value (zero bias).

Dependency updates

A range of dependencies were updated, including the BouncyCastle JCA provider to 1.78. The BouncyCastle update clears several reported CVEs, none of them critical for Connect2id server operation.

Release notes

15.5 (2024-04-23)

Configuration

  • /WEB-INF/authzStore.properties

    • authzStore.revocation.checkBias -- New optional configuration property to adjust the checking of revocation timestamps by adding a negative or positive time bias, in seconds. The default value is 0 seconds (no bias).

      A token is deemed active (non-revoked) if there are no recorded revocations for the token subject and / or client ID after the token issued-at time ("iat"). The resolution of revocations and token issued-at times is in seconds.

      With no (zero) bias tokens issued at the same second when a revocation is recorded are considered active (non-revoked). This enables a subject and / or client ID to have its tokens revoked and then be immediately issued again with active tokens, within the same second.

      A positive bias of 1 ensures tokens issued within the same second of a revocation are considered revoked, preventing any ambiguity in the time sequence of revocation and token issue events. A bias greater than 1 should generally not be used.

      A negative bias can mitigate false revocation positives in a Connect2id server cluster where the clocks of the individual server instances are out of sync.

  • /WEB-INF/httpClaimsSource.properties

    • op.httpClaimsSource.includeScope -- New optional configuration property of type boolean. Enables / disables inclusion in the request of the associated consented scope. Disabled by default.

SPI

  • Upgrades the Connect2id server SDK to com.nimbusds:c2id-server-sdk:5.3

    • New ClaimsSourceRequestContext.getScope method that returns the associated consented scope:

      • When sourcing claims for a UserInfo endpoint response this is the scope of the access token.

      • When sourcing claims for an ID token to be returned at the token endpoint this is the scope of the OAuth 2.0 grant (such as an authorization_code or refresh_token grant).

      • When sourcing claims for an ID token to be returned at the authorisation endpoint (for a response_type that contains the id_token value) this is the scope of the end-user consent.

      • When sourcing claims for an ID token returned at the Connect2id server direct authorisation endpoint.

      • In all other cases the scope is not provided and will be null.

Resolved issues

  • The Connect2id server must reject op.claims.map.* configuration properties with id_token: and access_token: prefixed claim names. These prefixes are intended for use in the authorisation session API and other documented locations only, using them in a custom OpenID claims map can lead to unintended side effects (issue server/991).

  • The AS0214 log INFO message must be recorded at the start of a revocation (issue authz-store/233).

Dependency changes

  • Upgrades to com.nimbusds:c2id-server-sdk:5.3

  • Upgrades to com.nimbusds:oauth2-authz-store:26.3

  • Updates to com.nimbusds:oidc-session-store:17.4

Connect2id server 15.4 introduces an STS web API to aid federated login

This release of the Connect2id server ships the much anticipated Security Token Service (STS) web API to ease implementation of federated logins for identity providers. The concept of federated login enables an identity provider to call on 3rd party providers to authenticate end-users and obtain attributes about them, in a manner that is completely transparent to the client applications.

An identity provider that is built with the Connect2id server can now utilise the server's existing cryptographic facilities - JWT signing and key store - to mint JWTs to secure OAuth 2.0 flows with upstream OpenID providers. An upstream provider can verify the signature of a JWT using the public JWK set URL of the Connect2id server.

The first version of the STS API supports minting of tokens for the following purposes:

To prevent mistakes in client logic, the STS API uses carefully designed templates to mint the requested JWTs. The templates take care to populate the JWT headers and claims sets with the correct data for the type of JWT and perform validation on the POSTed parameters. This means the STS cannot be used (or abused) to mint arbitrary JWTs.

Example request to the STS API to mint a token for a JAR:

POST /sts/rest/v1/issuer HTTP/1.1
Authorization: Bearer ztucZS1ZyFKgh0tUEruUtiSTXhnexmd6
Content-Type: application/json

{
  "template"   : "JAR",
  "alg"        : "RS256",
  "aud"        : "https://op.example.com",
  "parameters" : {
      "response_type"         : "code",
      "client_id"             : "client-123",
      "redirect_uri"          : "https://rp.example.com/cb",
      "scope"                 : "openid",
      "state"                 : "Mu0niexo",
      "nonce"                 : "Baemie2F",
      "code_challenge"        : "E9Melhoa2OwvFrEMTJguCHaoeK1t8URWbuGJSstw-cM",
      "code_challenge_method" : "S256"
  }
}

The STS will return a JWT, which when inspected will show a header and a claims set similar to these:

JWT header, note the typ (type) header to explicitly type the JWT, a security measure against cross-jwt confusion:

{
  "alg" : "RS256",
  "typ" : "oauth-authz-req+jwt",
  "kid" : "q9SZ"
}

JWT claims set, containing the requisite iss and aud claims, the rest are parameters of the signed OpenID authentication request:

{
  "iss"                   : "client-123",
  "aud"                   : "https://op.example.com",
  "response_type"         : "code",
  "client_id"             : "client-123",
  "redirect_uri"          : "https://rp.example.com/cb",
  "scope"                 : "openid",
  "state"                 : "Mu0niexo",
  "nonce"                 : "Baemie2F",
  "code_challenge"        : "E9Melhoa2OwvFrEMTJguCHaoeK1t8URWbuGJSstw-cM",
  "code_challenge_method" : "S256"
}

Release notes

15.4 (2024-03-11)

Summary

  • Adds a new Security Token Service (STS) web API to issue signed JWTs for JWT-secured Authorisation Requests (JAR, see RFC 9101) and private_key_jwt authentication. Intended when an Identity Provider based on the Connect2id server acts an OAuth 2.0 client / OpenID relying party in federated login scenarios. The signature of an issued JWT can be validated using the server JWK set published at the /jwks.json endpoint.

Configuration

  • /WEB-INF/oidcProvider.properties

    • op.sts.apiAccessTokenSHA256.* -- New optional configuration property. Specifies a master access token for the STS web API, represented by its SHA-256 hash (in hexadecimal format). The hashed storage is intended to prevent accidental leakage of the token through configuration files, logs, etc. The token is of type Bearer, non-expiring and must contain at least 32 random alphanumeric characters to make brute force guessing impractical. If not specified the web API is disabled.

      Additional access tokens, to facilitate token roll-over or for other needs, can be configured by appending a dot (.) with a unique label to the property name, e.g. as op.reg.apiAccessTokenSHA256.1=abc....

  • /WEB-INF/log4j.xml

    • Updates the PatternLayouts of the RollingFile and Console appenders to comply with a recent Log4j library change.

Web API

  • /sts/rest/v1/

    • New Security Token Service (STS) web API. Enabled if it has a master API access token (op.sts.apiAccessTokenSHA256) configured.
  • /sts/rest/v1/issuer

    • New resource to issue signed JWTs for JWT-secured Authorisation Requests (JAR) and private_key_jwt authentication. Supports the RSxxx, PSxxx and ESxxx JWS algorithm families. The JWTs are generated according to a built-in template that defines the acceptable JWT header parameters and claims set. The template ensures the JWT is compliant with the respective specification and potential errors, such as including a sub claim in signed request object (JAR), are prevented.

      Supported templates:

      • JAR -- For issue of signed JWT-secured Authorisation Requests (JAR), also called request objects in OpenID Connect.

      • private_key_jwt -- For issue of private key client authentication JWTs for use at the token and other endpoints of an OAuth 2.0 authorisation server / OpenID provider.

Resolved issues

  • Corrects the OP5109 log INFO message that records whether a master API token for the client registration endpoint is configured (issue server/978).

  • Fixes the shipped /WEB-INF/log4j.xml configuration to comply with a recent Log4j library change. In Connect2id server 15.3 this caused the log lines to contain only the log message (%m), with timestamp, etc. missing (issue server/980).

  • Logs token success response (OP6225) and error response (OP6226) at INFO level, with client ID, grant type and other details (issue server/982).

Dependency changes

  • Updates to org.slf4j:slf4j-api:2.0.9

  • Updates to com.github.dubasdey:log4j2-jsonevent-layout:0.0.8

Connect2id server 15.3

This Connect2id server release ships an update to the user sessions web API, to enable an individual session to be checked or retrieved without disturbing the session's max idle time expiration. To do this use the skip_last_used_update query parameter as shown in the example below:

GET /session-store/rest/v2/sessions?skip_last_used_update=true HTTP/1.1

This feature comes with a caveat. It is supported only in Connect2id server deployments that persist the sessions to a database or Redis. The query parameter will be ignored and have no effect in deployments configured for in-memory session storage and replication clustering.

A session related fix and improvements under the hood also took place.

About 20 dependencies across the board were bumped. The PostgreSQL JDBC driver was bumped to clear a critical CVE-2024-1597 that has been reported for the driver. The Connect2id server is not using the vulnerable JDBC configuration parameter, so deployments have not been affected.

Detailed information about the new release can be found in the notes below.

Release notes

15.3 (2024-03-05)

Web API

  • /session-store/rest/v2/

    • The sessions resource receives a new optional skip_last_used_update query parameter for GET requests for individual subject sessions. When true the internal timestamp that records the last session use will not be updated, leaving the session maximum idle time expiration unaffected. When false the last used timestamp of the session will be updated. The default value is false. Only Connect2id server deployments that persist the subject sessions to a database or Redis can skip the update of the session last used timestamp. In deployments using Infinispan in-memory replication clustering the query parameter will be disregarded and have no effect.

Resolved issues

  • Updates the SQL store connector to log the SQL transaction isolation level at INFO level at Connect2id server startup. The log message receives the IS0143 identifier (issue sql-store/38).

  • Removes a redundant ConcurrentMap.remove call in the subject session store when updating the last used timestamp of a retrieved persisted subject session with a positive max_idle value (issue session-store/97).

  • Improves the performance of the authorisation session web API, the authorisation code grant processing, the refresh token grant processing and the token introspection processing by skipping the last used timestamp update of retrieved subject sessions where appropriate (issue server/975).

  • Adds a org.apache.logging.log4j:log4j-slf4j-impl dependency to enable jOOQ query logging at DEBUG level (issue server/976).
