Entree Federation: Installing SimpleSAMLphp as a Service Provider

Nl.gif Nederlands En.gif English


Step 1: Installation

Installation of SimplSAMLphp can be achieved by following the guides at the SimpleSAMLphp website:

  1. Installation documentation SimpleSAMLphp
  2. Quickstart document SimpleSAMLphp

Step 2: Configuration

The Entree Federation requires a couple of specific configurations within SimpleSAMLphp.

Editing authsources.php

NOTE! The following example code exists of additions or changes. The php tags are not included.
The changes are described in the comments.

    'default-sp' => array(
        'saml:SP',
        
        // Insert your application entityID (usually the unique url of your service)   
        'entityID' => 'http://domainname.com',
        
        // Certificate generated in step 1.1 in the Quickstart
        'privatekey' => 'saml.pem',
        'certificate' => 'saml.crt',

        // Changing the standard menu for Identity Providers to the Entree Federation menu
        // NOTE: The configuration below is set for the Entree staging environment. When going live the value should be changed to aselect.entree.kennisnet.nl
        'idp' => 'aselect-s.entree.kennisnet.nl',  // staging/test url
        // 'idp' => 'aselect.entree.kennisnet.nl',  // production url

        // Setting the identifier format for the subject of the authentication
        'NameIDPolicy' => 'urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:1.1:nameid-format:unspecified',
        'attributes.NameFormat' => 'urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:nameid-format:unspecified',

        // Optional configuration to enable pre-login which than can be called by the Identity provider
        // 'IDPList' => array( 'entityidofidp', ),
        // 'ProxyCount' => 1,
    ),
Warn.gif From SimpleSAMLphp version 1.15 onwards 'NameIDFormat' has been replaced by 'NameIDPolicy'. The use of 'NameIDFormat' is no longer supported.

NOTE! Entree Federation refreshes the metadata every 4 hours. However a change in the entityID will not automatically be processed. Contact our servicedesk at https://support.kennisnet.org/ when you want to change your entityID.

Editing config.php

NOTE! The following example code exists of additions or changes. The php tags are not included.
The changes are described in the comments.

        // The path through which simpleSAMLphp is available. This should match with the alias location in the webserver configuration
        'baseurlpath'           => 'simplesaml/',

        // Change the standard password for the webinterface!!! 
        'auth.adminpassword'          => '!123456!',

        // Insert your own contact information
        'technicalcontact_name'     => 'Technical contact',
        'technicalcontact_email'    => 'na@example.org',
