9.2 Release Notes

Upgrade notes

Warning: 

  • The upgrade script will attempt to configure the TBA as Proxy SP on the  "/tba" location.  Even if TBA is already configured in IDHub. 
  • A new mandatory field was added to SAML Service Providers called "Post Profile Template" but the default value was not applied in the final version. This may result in errors in the logging. To avoid this, specify a value in this field.
  • Some users have experienced that the order of Authentication Methods on an Authentication Scheme was changed. Please check the order after upgrading.
  • Some users have experienced changes in the certificate start- and enddates on the Service Provider and Identity Provider pages.

Highlights

  • TrustBuilder Mobile Authenticator
    Support for using the Trustbuilder 4 Mobile application
  • WS Federation Service Providers
    New Service Provider type that uses the WS Federation Protocol. 
  • AttributeConsumingServices and AttributeConsumingServiceIndex (SAML)
    An optional configuration in SAML, where the requested attributes to be asserted are specified. Useful in privacy sensitive set-ups. Functionally analogue to Scopes in OpenIDConnect.
  • Attribute Sets
    Supporting feature for AttributeConsumingServices (AtCS).  Attributes are grouped in sets, which make up an AtCS.
    Will later be extended to also support OpenIDConnect Scopes.
  • Step-up support in Authentication Rules
    Authentication rules can now be configured that the outcome requests the user to step-up his authentication level.
  • New Identity Provider type that executes a workflow
    The internal IDP type now can execute a workflow that will handle the Authentication & Authorization.

Changes

  • Improvements to the internal code of existing templates
  • Reduce blocking of all SPs to only SAML and OAuth SPs
  • added the CHECK_AGENT_ID property to the trustbuilder.properties file
  • Ansible logging now enabled by default 
  • Upgrading OpenSSL version in nginx
  • In Settings - Authentication - Templates it is no longer necessary to specify all parameters in the location URL. IDHub will now automatically add all known parameters. For a full list click here.
  • Will now block Tomcat from installing if the internal memory has less than 2 GB available
  • Extra parameter added in ansible on the gateway role (redis_bind_ip). This allows to bind the gateway to a specific redis and not defined in the ansible script
  • Performance tuning on various places (enabling caching)
  • Trustbuilder core now uses Java 8
  • IDP type OAuth had a few label and field changes, for correctness

RedisService changes

  • The TTL property has been removed, because there is a TimeOutInSec property that fulfills the same function.
  • The MasterAndSentinels property has been divided into two properties: Master and Sentinels.
  • The Host property is being prepared for deprecation. It can still be used for single node deployments, but for future use you can set the Sentinel's property containing only one address of a Sentinel.
  • The optional Password property has been added.

Notice for deprecation

The "SAML Component" will slowly be phased out.  The current release of IDHub should now cover the existing functionality to a sufficient degree. From this point forward, no new changes to the SAML component will be made.  The component itself remains available for legacy reasons.

9.2.1 Release Notes

  • Changed the design of the TB4Mobile app
  • Added several kernel parameters to the Digipass settings page
  • Fixed an issue where the Session Hook workflow was triggered twice after a logout was completed
  • Fixed an issue when the Assertion provided encrypted attributes via an artifact that could not be handled. (SAML)
  • Fixed an issue during the upgrade to 9.2 when the /tba location is already present as an SP.
  • Fixed an issue where the SAML cancellation error parameters were not passed to the Proxy SP
  • Changed some of the SAML status messages to better distinguish the kinds of errors (TB-5117):
    • Responder, AuthnFailed will give the code AUTHN_FAILED
    • Requester, AuthnFailed will give the code MESSAGE_VALIDATION_FAILED
    • Responder, NoAuthnContext will give the code NO_AUTHN_CONTEXT
    • Responder, RequestDenied will give the code REQUEST_DENIED
  • The redirect to the error page in case of an error to be communicated to a proxy sp has an additional query parameter "type" indicating if it is a cancellation (with value "CANCELLATION") or not. This will be removed in 9.3.
