WS security in OSB

In OSB you can protect your WSDL proxy services with XML Signature / encryption, authentication or your own custom ws-policy. In this blog entry I will give you all the information how to do this.
First we start by adding a standard OSB WS-Policy. Open the WSDL of a proxy service where we add for example the signing policy. We always need to add wsp:UsingPolicy element else OSB won't detect the wanted security policy

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<definitions targetNamespace="http://saml.ws.whitehorses.nl/"
name="HelloWorldService" xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/wsdl/soap/"
xmlns:tns="http://saml.ws.whitehorses.nl/" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"
xmlns="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/wsdl/" xmlns:wsp="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/ws/2004/09/policy">
<wsp:UsingPolicy wsdl:Required="true" xmlns:wsdl="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/wsdl/"/>
<types>
<xsd:schema>
<xsd:import namespace="http://saml.ws.whitehorses.nl/" schemaLocation="Helloworld.xsd"/>
</xsd:schema>
</types>

Add the Signing policy to a operation or put this in a other part of the WSDL see this url for more information. In this case I can use wsp:Policy with a PolicyReference and the URI is policy:Sign.xml . If you want encryption then you can use policy:Encrypt.xml as URI or use policy:Auth.xml for ws authentication. Off course you can combine policies.

<binding name="HelloWorldServiceSoapHttpPortBinding" type="tns:HelloWorldService">
<soap:binding transport="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/http" style="document"/>
<operation name="sayHello">
<wsp:Policy>
<wsp:PolicyReference URI="policy:Sign.xml"/>
</wsp:Policy>

You don't have to use the OSB standard policies, you can also add your own ws-policy ( in OSB 10.3 you can only use the policy definition of WLS 9, so don't expect you can make policies which uses the 2005 or 2007 WS-Security standard). Here is a example of a custom policy.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<wsp:Policy wsu:Id="X509v3"
xmlns:wsp="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/ws/2004/09/policy"
xmlns:sp="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/ws/2005/07/securitypolicy"
xmlns:wsu="http://docs.oasis-open.org/wss/2004/01/oasis-200401-wss-wssecurity-utility-1.0.xsd">
<sp:InitiatorToken>
<wsp:Policy>
<sp:X509Token
sp:IncludeToken="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/ws/2005/07/securitypolicy/IncludeToken/AlwaysToRecipient">
<wsp:Policy>
<sp:RequireThumbprintReference />
<sp:WssX509V3Token10 />
</wsp:Policy>
</sp:X509Token>
</wsp:Policy>
</sp:InitiatorToken>
<sp:RecipientToken>
<wsp:Policy>
<sp:X509Token
sp:IncludeToken="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/ws/2005/07/securitypolicy/IncludeToken/Never">
<wsp:Policy>
<sp:RequireThumbprintReference />
<sp:WssX509V3Token10 />
</wsp:Policy>
</sp:X509Token>
</wsp:Policy>
</sp:RecipientToken>
<sp:AlgorithmSuite>
<wsp:Policy>
<sp:TripleDesRsa15 />
</wsp:Policy>
</sp:AlgorithmSuite>
<sp:Layout>
<wsp:Policy>
<sp:Strict />
</wsp:Policy>
</sp:Layout>
<sp:IncludeTimestamp />
<sp:OnlySignEntireHeadersAndBody />
</wsp:Policy>

The value of the wsu:Id attribute if important for the WS policy reference in the WSDL of the proxy service

<binding name="HelloWorldServiceSoapHttpPortBinding" type="tns:HelloWorldService">
<soap:binding transport="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/http" style="document"/>
<operation name="sayHello">
<wsp:Policy>
<wsp:PolicyReference URI="policy:X509v3"/>
</wsp:Policy>

In this case the URI has policy:X509v3 as value

The next step is to make some keystores for WebLogic and OSB. We need to create 509 v3 certificates and import these certificates in a java 1.6 keystore for signing and encryption.
We need to have 509 version 3 certificates because we need the SubjectKeyIdentifier extension. This is only supported in version 3 of 509 and only OpenSSL can generate these certificates.

You can use self signed v3 certificates, for more info see this Glen Mazza's weblog. I'll use a CA.
#first make a CA request
C:\tools\OpenSSL\bin\openssl genrsa -des3 -out C:\projecten\certs2\ca.key 4096 -rand random
#self sign our CA certificate
C:\tools\OpenSSL\bin\\openssl req -new -x509 -days 3650 -config C:\projecten\certs2\ca.conf -key C:\projecten\certs2\ca.key -out C:\projecten\certs2\ca.crt

# make serial.txt file in C:\projecten\certs2\ and add 01 in this file

# make an empty index.txt file in C:\projecten\certs2\

Download the ca.conf which will be used to sign the certificates


# generate a server request and use servername with the domain name as common name CN
c:\tools\openssl\bin\openssl genrsa -des3 -out C:\projecten\certs2\server.key 4096
c:\tools\openssl\bin\openssl req -newkey rsa:1024 -nodes -keyout C:\projecten\certs2\server.key -out C:\projecten\certs2\server.csr -config C:\projecten\certs2\ca.conf

# export server

C:\java\jdk160_05\bin\keytool -list -keystore C:\projecten\certs2\trust.jks -storepass welcome

The next step is to configure Weblogic. First we add the new keystores and configure SSL and add a new PKI Credential mapping provider. The PKI Credential mapping provider will be used by OSB for the XMLsignature and encryption. The trust keystore will be used to check if the signer certificate is trusted.
Go to the OSB server in the WLS console
In the keystore tab we will add our keystores

In the SSL tab we will use the server certificate which has the server + domain name as Common name so Internet explorer won't complain that the certificate and server name does not match.


Select the myrealm Security Realm where we will add a new PKI Credential Mapping provider

In the Providers tab we will create a new PKI Credential Mapping
Select the just created PKI credential mapping and fill the values in the Provider Specific tab. Use the keystore and not the trust keystore for this

We are finished in the Weblogic Console and we can go the OSB console where we have to create a new Service Key provider and configure the Proxy service so it uses this provider.

Create a new Service Key provider. This how it looks like in the Workshop but this does not work because eclipse can't retrieve the certificates of the PKI credential mapping provider.

So we have to use the OSB console to add the right certificate for signing and encryption to the Service Key Provider.
Now we see the certificates of the Weblogic PKI Credential mapping. If you don't see this then probably you don't use 509 version 3 certifcates.

The last step is to configure the proxy service. Here we have to disable XOP/MTOM support
And select the Service Key Provider


Now we can test the proxy service by invoking the WS and selecting the Service Key Provider.

With this as result

And this is how the WSDL with signing looks like

That's all.


If you want to use OSB 10.3 security with Soa Suite 11g R1 then you should read this 11g documentation, This explains how to change the OSB encrypt and sign policy so it works with FMW 11g.

  1. Why must MTOM be disabled? Is this because you can't use MTOM and WS-Security with OSB? Or just becaues you aren't using MTOM in this example?

    for MTOM, reliable message policy is needed , somehow this conflicts with ws security.

  15. Hi,

    You have to make your own policy file and add them to OSB proxy wsdl.
    And this must be compatiable in OSB and in OWSM 11g

  22. Hi Mr. Biemond, thanks for the useful post. The only thing I'm having trouble is about the step to configure the Encryption Key in the Service Key Provider Configuration in OSB. My clients are going to send SOAP requests with their X.509 certificate included (and so their public key). So the encryption key will be potentialy different for every request, so I doesn't make sense to hard code a single encryption key in the configuration, so how should I configure this? Hope I've could be clear !
    Thanks

  23. Hi,

    I know what you mean, I do the same but then with smime. I made a custom application with has it's own keystore mechanism and I use bouncycastle framework for decrypting and encryting.

    Don't know if that is possible with oracle soa products. OSB should check the new public key and update the keystore.

    thanks

  24. I need to consume an HTTPS web service self signed ¿how do I do? I have the file .cert and .key

  25. Hi,

    You must check which keystores you are using on the soa server. check in the wls console , go to servers.

    and import this key in the keystore or truststore.

    here are the default password for the default keystores


    Trust store DemoTrust.jks
    Trust store password DemoTrustKeyStorePassPhrase

    Key store DemoIdentity.jks
    Key store password DemoIdentityKeyStorePassPhrase

    Private key password DemoIdentityPassPhrase

    Yes it is possible two way ssl in OSB.
    Did you allow cn common name on the default authentication provider of the myrealm security provider.

  30. Hi Edwin, does this process (the steps you have mentioned), encrypt the message WHILE sending the message to the back end service? I mean, in my case, the request coming in to my proxy service would be a simple soap message without any security on it, and we need to encrypt it before sending to the backend service.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hi,

    you can add the security on the business service. And when you use OWSM then you can select the right OWSM client policy which matches with the backend ws security

  36. Hi Edwin,

    Thanks for the directions, would have saved me a lot of hassle the last 3 weeks. I've got a OSB 11g Proxy service running with the built-in Auth.xml and Sign.xml, but need to add SAML with X509. I believe I can't use OWSM because it needs a heavy duty DB like Oracle's, so I'm trying to create a custom policy. In fact, I thought I would grab a policy out of weblogic.jar, but the ones I've tried have generated complaints in Eclipse that WSSP 1.2 message level security isn't supported in OSB. What's my best route? Is it dumb to try this without OWSM? Why can WLS support WSSP 1.2 but not OSB? Also FYI, I think I was able to generate the v3 certs using the Jrockit keytool, and configured the keystore in Eclipse OEPE so I can create Service Key Providers. I assume you were referring to some older products, like workshop maybe? Or have I just not seem the I'll effects yet? Thanks again for the helpful post and for any help you can provide!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Hi,

    just use OWSM, the database will only be used to store the policies. You only need to install a weblogic mds schema.

    you can use sqlserver or install the oracle xe database which is free and light.

    the weblogic 9 policies won't be supported in the next release. OWSM has the future and support.

  46. Hi Edwin,

    OSB11g: We have imported "wss_http_token_service_policy" from OWSM and attached it to Service A via OSB console. However, i am unsure on how to configure the Access Control for Service A. We would like to perform authorization check on the HTTP Basic Authentication UserID that was sent.

    I tried configuring Authorization via:
    Security tab -> Access Control -> Transport Access Control: add existing userId.
    Error Encountered:
    •[OSB Security - OWSM:387196]The service has both OWSM Transport Policy 'oracle/wss_http_token_service_policy' and transport level access controls. This combination is not supported. If OWSM Transport Policy is used, OWSM authorization policy should be used. Solution: Either remove OWSM Transport Policy and replace that intent by configuring authentication directly on the transport OR remove transport ACLs from the Security page and replace them with OWSM Authorization Policy.

    How do we maintain to use OWSM to import "wss_http_token_service_policy" and use the http authentication credentials to perform authorization as well?

    Many thanks in advance.

    1. Hi,

      You can't do both and OWSM is the way to go. There is a OWSM policy who can check if the user has a particular role, don't know which one it is. This is the one you should use. I think you should copy this policy and add the required role value .

      Good luck

  47. Hello Biemond,

    There is any way to sign the body instead of the header?
    I mean if I can write down on the body for each part I need to sign.

    Thanks in advance.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi,

      the signing is always over the body contents ( to detect changes ) and a token is added to the soap header. The encryption policy encrypts the body. but you can say which parts should be encrypted or signed ( define this in the wsdl ).

      thanks

      I know RSA-SHA256 is possible with OWSM but don't know about sha512 and with the default weblogic security policies.

      thanks

  49. hi

    i have added a custom an existing WS Policy Sign.xml in my proxy. but when i am testing i can see that the request document has two soap envelops of the input message. in the response document i can see that there are two soap envelops. the first is a successful response, but the second fails. "weblogic.xml.dom.marshal.MarshalException: weblogic.xml.crypto.wss.WSSecurityException: Security token failed to validate"

    m not sure why two request envelops are being sent.

    thanks

    1. Hi,

      I don't know Apache santuario but I think you can change an existing OWSM policy

      Thanks

  51. Hi Edwin,

    I have configured osb to use client certificates correctly and everything works fine thanks to your post! :D
    Do you know how i can get the CN of the certificate that is used to call the proxy service because i want to add it with transformation and then call the BS??

    1. Hi,

      Don't know exactly but can you check the soap header / transport options in the proxy service.

      I think it should be there .

      thanks

  52. Hi Biemond,

    I have requirement to encrypt part of data logged into server log file. Do you have any pointers.

    This has to be used for SOA and OSB both.

    BR!

    1. Hi,

      I don't think this is possible in the 11g versions. I saw something like this in soa suite 12c beta

      Thanks

  53. I have a Base64 encoded string from Provider and need to encrypt the data using that key and sign the message body which in JSON format. Is that something I can do without much customization in OSB or I need to write custom java code.

    1. Hi,

      I think you got two options , make a custom OWSM policy or do it all in a OSB java callout.

      Thanks

  55. Hi Edwin,

    I am new to osb and i want to achieve the below functionality:

    • Use 2-way SSL authentication for accessing another secured service from OSB
    • Use HTTP basic authentication for accessing a secured service from OSB

    Could you please help me in this. I need some material to start.

    Thanks in Advance

  56. Hello Biemond,

    Excellent article so far I found in context of Securing web services with OSB.
    Another issue that I came across is that every example available on the web for OSB secured webservices, when it comes to consuming those services its always importing some classes from weblogic jar's such as SecurityPoliciesFeature or ClientConstants etc.

    My doubt is if i'm going to develop a service and secured using WS-Policy in OSB isn't it getting my service bounded to weblogic clients only? What if I need to develop a standalone java client which have no access to weblogic jar or let say a .net client in that case no possibility of weblogic jar to be placed in classpath.

    I request you to kindly provide some example of java client consuming the above service without making use of any weblogic specific classes such as ClientConstants.

  57. Hi I have one query on web security
    We have requirement of authenticating web service client. We have custom authentication provider that generates authentication token string which client pass to OSB server and OSB server has implemented security provider and validates this token string.
    for this purpose we created custom soap header and passing token string in header I would like to know is this a correct approach? Format looks like in soap request as below.


    MQkyCUg… base64binary string … euJSa


    We come to know that this is not as per security standards and so I was searching WS-Securtiy example that can support custom token for authentication but i did not found any. Our requirement is to authenticate client based on token string provided and we do not want to apply any message level encryption or signing.
    Can you please tell me is this possible to use WS-Security specification to create custom token like above security token and do not require additional signing or encryption requirement construct in soap request should look like as below


    [binary data for token]



    ValueType= typeA or TypeB we have two different types of security token string one is base64Binary and another is normal string so typeA has EncodingType as base64Binary and typeB has has EncodingType as String

    Or is there any other way of specifying custom token within WS-Security?

  59. Hi Edwin,
    Is WLST script for security selection (OWSM policy from OWSM policy store option) is available in OSB 12c ? Is it need to be done manually only on each service or is it possible to do it using the scripts? We have wls policies attached to proxy services(in 11g) now want to make use of OWSM wss_username_token_service_policy (jn 12c), have to do it for more than 100 proxies, so I believe there should be an option to perform it using scripts instead of making manual change. Please advice. Thanks a lot.
