5 XWiki supports several different authentication mechanisms for authenticating users.
6
7 {{info}}
8 XWiki currently allows only one method of authentication to be enabled at a time. This will probably be improved in the future.
9 {{/info}}
10
11 Also note that XWiki requires cookies to be enable in order to track your session and to keep you logged in between pages.
12
13 = Form Authentication =
14
15 Form authentication is the default way to get authenticated within a Wiki. It requires a user and a password.
16
17 = Basic Authentication =
18
19 XWiki supports [[basic access authentication>>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basic_access_authentication]], a method designed to allow a web browser or other client programs to provide credentials - in the form of a user name and password - when making a request. You can get authenticated against an XWiki server with the basic authentication protocol using the following URL scheme:
20
21 {{code}}
22 http://username:password@mywiki.xwiki.com/xwiki/bin/view/Main/WebHome?basicauth=1
23 {{/code}}
24
25 {{warning}}
26 Be careful that if you use the ##HTTP## protocol your password will be sent in clear over the network and is thus very unsafe. When using basic authentication you should make sure your wiki is configured to use ##HTTPS##.
27 {{/warning}}
28
29 = Container Authentication =
30
31 Delegates authentication to the Servlet Container. If it fails it falls back to the standard XWiki authentication.
32
33 To configure XWiki to use it, specify:
34
35 {{code language="properties"}}
36 xwiki.authentication.authclass=com.xpn.xwiki.user.impl.xwiki.AppServerTrustedAuthServiceImpl
37 {{/code}}
38
39 For users to be actually created and not just set as context user you must set in ##xwiki.cfg## configuration file (if the property does not already exist, create it):
40
41 {{code language="properties"}}
42 xwiki.authentication.createuser=empty
43 {{/code}}
44
45 = Social Login =
46
47 See the [[Social Login Application>>extensions:Extension.Social Login Application]].
48
49 = LDAP Authentication =
50
51 == Active Directory ==
52
53 If you're looking to connect XWiki to an Active Directory server, you have 2 options:
54
55 * Using the manual and generic approach listed below
56 * Using the dedicated [[Active Directory Application>>https://store.xwiki.com/xwiki/bin/view/Extension/ActiveDirectoryApplication]] which is a paying application dedicated to simplifying the integration of Active Directory with XWiki.
57
58 == Generic LDAP configuration ==
59
60 It's recommended to use the [[LDAP Authenticator extension>>extensions:Extension.LDAP.Authenticator]] instead of the core LDAP authenticator.
61
62 The following documentation is for the core LDAP authenticator which has been removed in 8.3.
63
64 If you are going to use the [[LDAP Admin Extension>>extensions:Extension.LDAP.Application]], which makes it easier to configure LDAP, then you only need to uncomment ##xwiki.authentication.authclass## property and //nothing// else. Unlike editing ##xwiki.cfg##, which requires you to redeploy the XWiki webapp, LDAP Extension allows you to make changes without restarting.
65
66 In order to enable the LDAP support you have to change the authentication method in //WEB-INF/xwiki.cfg// as follows:
67
68 {{code language="properties"}}
69 #-# LDAP authentication service
70 # xwiki.authentication.authclass=com.xpn.xwiki.user.impl.LDAP.XWikiLDAPAuthServiceImpl
71
72 #-# Turn LDAP authentication on - otherwise only XWiki authentication
73 #-# - 0: disable
74 #-# - 1: enable
75 #-# The default is 0
76 # xwiki.authentication.ldap=1
77 {{/code}}
78
79 You can setup the LDAP configuration in the **xwiki.cfg** file by filling the following properties:
80
81 {{code language="properties"}}
82 #-# Turn LDAP authentication on - otherwise only XWiki authentication
83 #-# - 0: disable
84 #-# - 1: enable

240
241 {{info}}
242 You can also setup the LDAP configuration in the XWiki.XWikiPreferences page by going to the object editor. Simply replace **xwiki.authentication.ldap.** with **ldap_**. For example ##xwiki.authentication.ldap.base_DN## becomes ##ldap_base_DN##.
243 {{/info}}
244
245 == LDAP clients ==
246
247 For testing purposes, you may wish to omit the "ldap.fields_mapping" field, to test the authentication first, and then add it later to get the mappings right.
248
249 Here are some LDAP clients for checking your configuration:
250
251 Extensions:
252
253 * [[LDAP query snippet>>snippets:Extension.LDAP Query]]
254
255 Java based and Open Source:
256
257 * [[Apache Directory Studio>>http://directory.apache.org/studio/]]
258 * [[JXplorer>>http://jxplorer.org/]]
259
260 Windows only:
261
262 * [[Softerra LDAP Browser>>http://www.ldapbrowser.com/info_softerra-ldap-browser.htm]]
263
264 == Detailed use cases ==
265
266 See the [[LDAP configuration uses cases>>Documentation.AdminGuide.LDAPAuthenticationUseCases]] for some detailed use cases.
267
268 == Enable LDAP debug log ==
269
270 See [[Documentation.AdminGuide.Logging]].
271
272 The specific packages to track for LDAP are ##com.xpn.xwiki.plugin.ldap## and ##com.xpn.xwiki.user.impl.LDAP##.
273
274 Starting with XWiki 4.2 we added a new [[Logging UI>>extensions:Extension.Logging Application]] from the Administration section, which allows logging to be enabled at runtime, directly from the UI, without the need to restart the wiki.
275
276 In XWiki 3.4 you need to add the following in ##WEB-INF/classes/logback.xml##:
277
278 {{code}}
279 <!-- LDAP debugging -->
280 <logger name="com.xpn.xwiki.plugin.ldap" level="trace"/>
281 <logger name="com.xpn.xwiki.user.impl.LDAP" level="trace"/>
282 {{/code}}
283
284 Before 3.1, add the following to the log4j configuration file:
285
286 {{code}}
287 log4j.logger.com.xpn.xwiki.plugin.ldap=trace
288 log4j.logger.com.xpn.xwiki.user.impl.LDAP=trace
289 {{/code}}
290
291 = Custom Authentication =
292
293 This allows plugging to any existing authentication mechanism such as SiteMinder, etc. To configure a custom authentication do the following:
294
295 1. Implement the {{scm path="xwiki-platform-core/xwiki-platform-oldcore/src/main/java/com/xpn/xwiki/user/api/XWikiAuthService.java"}}XWikiAuthService{{/scm}} interface.
296 1. Edit the //WEB-INF/xwiki.cfg// file and add a //xwiki.authentication.authclass// property pointing to your class. For example:
297
298 {{code language="properties"}}
299 xwiki.authentication.authclass = com.acme.MyCustomAuthenticationService
300 {{/code}}
301
302 You can find various authenticators examples in [[sandbox>>https://github.com/xwiki-contrib/sandbox/tree/master/authenticators]] or [[extensions>>http://extensions.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Main/WebHome#|t=extensions&p=1&l=30&s=doc.creationDate&d=desc&name=authenticator]].
303
304 Here's a [[tutorial on implementing a custom authentication class for authenticating against Oracle's SSO>>http://bodez.wordpress.com/2008/10/15/xwiki-user-authentication-with-oracle-sso/]].
305
306 Note that it's also possible to customize the right management system, see [[extensions:Extension.Security Module]] for more details.
307
308 == Custom Authentication using a Groovy script in a wiki page ==
309
310 Start by specifying you want to use the Groovy Authenticator:
311
312 {{code language="properties"}}
313 xwiki.authentication.authclass = com.xpn.xwiki.user.impl.xwiki.GroovyAuthServiceImpl
314 {{/code}}
315
316 Then add another configuration parameter to specify in which wiki page the authenticator is:
317
318 {{code language="properties"}}
319 xwiki.authentication.groovy.pagename = MySpace.MyPage
320 {{/code}}
321
322 Then put some Groovy code in a wiki page that returns a XWikiAuthService object.
323
324 = Authentication parameters =
325
326 You can set each of these parameters by setting:
327
328 {{code}}
329 xwiki.authentication.<param_name>=<param_value>
330 {{/code}}
331
332 |=Name|=Optional|=Allowed values|=Default value|=Description
333 |encryptionKey|No(1)|?|n/a|Set the Encryption Key used to create a secret key, the secret key is passed to the Cipher object to be used during encryption and decryption of cookie values.
334 |validationKey|No(2)|?|n/a|Set the Validation Key used to generate hash value; the hash value is stored with the cookie and used to verify that the cookie has not been tampered with.
335 |cookiedomains|Yes|String|Server host name|Which host(s) should your cookies be sent to; use only if you want to share cookies across domains, otherwise should be commented out
336 |cookielife|Yes|Number|14|Number of days cookies take to expire
337 |cookiepath|Yes|String|/|The webapp path that XWiki cookies should be sent to; if you have anything else running on your web server, this should be set to ///xwiki//
338 |default_page|Yes|String|/bin/view/ Main/WebHome|Page to redirect to if xredirect parameter is not set
339 |encryptionalgorithm|Yes|?|?|Set the Encryption Algorithm used to encrypt and decrypt cookies
340 |encryptionmode|Yes|?|?|Set the Encryption Mode used to encrypt and decrypt cookies
341 |encryptionpadding|Yes|?|?|Set the Encryption Padding used to encrypt and decrypt cookies
342 |errorpage|Yes|String|/bin/loginerror/ XWiki/XWikiLogin|Page to redirect to if there is an error logging in
343 |loginpage|Yes|String|/bin/login/ XWiki/XWikiLogin|Page to redirect to when not logged in
344 |loginsubmitpage|Yes|String|/loginsubmit/ XWiki/XWikiLogin|The URL where the username and password are posted to when logging in.
345 |logoutpage|Yes|String|/bin/logout/ XWiki/XWikiLogout|Page to redirect to after logged out
346 |realmname|Yes|String|XWiki|Sets the realm name
347 |protection|Yes|all, validation, encryption, none|all|Protection level for the "remember me" cookie functionality
348 |unauthorized_code|Yes|Number|401|The HTTP status code to return when the login has failed.
349 |useip|Yes|true / false|true|Specify to use the IP address when encrypting the cookie data; if IP address changes will need to re-login.
350
351 1. Only required if protection = encryption or all (default)
352 1. Only required if protection = validation or all (default)
353
354 = Kerberos SSO Authentication =
355
356 {{warning}}
357 This implementation of SSO is currently under review see: https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-2496 . The class which is described in this segment of documentation, AppServerTrustedKerberosAuthServiceImpl, is not part of the default XWiki distribution!
358 {{/warning}}
359
360 The following is an example of **mod_auth_kerb** for Apache being used to easily implement XWiki authentication of users via HTTP Negotiate on a linux server. This example assumes you already have a working Apache2 HTTPD and Apache Tomcat setup with mod_jk.
361
362 First of all you need to create a principal and keytab for the webserver:
363
364 {{code}}
365 # kadmin
366 kadmin> addprinc -randkey HTTP/wiki.example.com
367 kadmin> ktadd -k /etc/apache2/ssl/wiki.keytab HTTP/wiki.example.com
368 kadmin> quit
369 {{/code}}
370
371 Make sure the keytab has the right permissions and ownership:
372
373 {{code}}
374 chown www-data:www-data /etc/apache2/ssl/wiki.keytab
375 chmod 400 /etc/apache2/ssl/wiki.keytab
376 {{/code}}
377
378 Install **mod_auth_kerb** in your linux installation. On Debian or Ubuntu this would be achieved by running:
379
380 {{code}}
381 aptitude install libapache2-mod-auth-kerb
382 {{/code}}
383
384 Of course the installation procedure varies per Linux distribution.
385
386 If your xwiki installation is mounted in Apache HTTPD under /xwiki, add the following to the virtual host configuration:
387
388 {{code}}
389 <Location /xwiki/>
390 AuthType Kerberos
391 AuthName "Kerberos Login"
392 KrbAuthRealms EXAMPLE.COM
393 Krb5Keytab "/etc/apache2/ssl/wiki.keytab"
394 KrbMethodK5Passwd off
395 KrbMethodNegotiate on
396 KrbSaveCredentials on
397 require valid-user
398 </Location>
399 {{/code}}
400
401 Make sure Apache Tomcat uses the authentication performed by Apache HTTPD with the "tomcatAuthentication" property in the connector description (which is in the **server.xml** file of Apache Tomcat):
402
403 {{code}}
404 <Connector port="8009" address="127.0.0.1" enableLookups="false" tomcatAuthentication="false" redirectPort="8443" protocol="AJP/1.3" />
405 {{/code}}
406
407 Place the **authkerb.jar** jar in the ##WEB-INF/lib## directory of XWiki in Apache Tomcat.
408
409 Have Xwiki use the authentication module by changing the "xwiki.authentication.authclass" property in the ##WEB-INF/lib/xwiki.cfg## file.
410
411 {{code}}
412 xwiki.authentication.authclass=com.xpn.xwiki.user.impl.xwiki.AppServerTrustedKerberosAuthServiceImpl
413 {{/code}}
414
415 If you use Firefox, do not forget to whitelist the xwiki URL for HTTP Negotiate in about:config with the "network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris" property. Possible values for this property include: //https:~/~/// for all secured connections or **example.com** for all example.com subdomains.
416
417 When I used JBoss SPNEGO (Kerberos in combination with LDAP) I changed the code of the **XWikiLDAPAuthServiceImpl** to be able to detect the sso user. The authenication already happend by using the SPNEGO module (JAAS). After that I'm using the ldap synchronisation feature to make sure that the user is up to date. The combination leads to an automatic login in XWiki and the user rights are controlled in the Active Directory server. I hope you can adopt this code or that you can use it for your own projects.
418
419 The configuration of ldap:
420
421 {{code}}
422 xwiki.authentication.authclass=com.wiki.sso.SSOLdapAuthenicationImpl
423 xwiki.authentication.ldap=1
