Security

Depending on the application, consider adding a custom access control rule for dacs_sts (e.g., to limit access to a particular host or subnet, or even certain identities).

Configuration

The following configuration variables are available:

infocard_sts_password

For managed InfoCards generated with a INFOCARD_STS_AUTH_TYPE of "passwd" and an INFOCARD_STS_PASSWORD_METHOD of "sts", this is the global user password that must be provided. Changing this password affects all managed InfoCard accounts.

OPTIONS

Web Service Arguments

None.

DIAGNOSTICS

The program exits 0 if everything was fine, 1 if an error occurred.

BUGS

Secure token replay detection is not yet implemented.

As this is a relatively new and complicated feature, please test carefully.
