Adventures in publishing 3rd party snapshot jars to the nexus repository. Current process is to ping Tom when an update is needed.





  • Resolved IDP-949
  • Suggest we document Webflow inheritance somewhere. I keep getting tripped up by it.


SP - VC14 (VS2015, just to confuse) conversion.  Almost done modulo the bits that aren't.

IdP - Some maintenance

EDS - Time to consider running the snapshot on   EDS-71

 I probably need help with prioritization.


Worked on a lot of development and extension documentation related to custom flows of various types, did some refactoring of flow responsibilities as I identified problems with the development model.

Note: re-did the message properties as suggested by community with all the built-in values moved into system/

MFA work sort of parked so I'm not splitting my brain, but the trendline on it was in a discomfortingly "reinvent Spring WebFlow" direction FWIW.

SP advisory issued, not much reaction as of yet, but no push back on the plan either. The security issue in JIRA was opened up since the issue is fully disclosed anyway.

Started work on SP enhancements and fixes scheduled for 2.6, slow going while I re-learn C++.

No word on either my proposed Xerces fixes or from the expected fuzzing on xmlsec. Think we should consider allocating time to build and run SP with Google's address sanitizing library built in to RH7. My expectation is the results will be very, very bad. Will be very time consuming.

Grant SoW proposal sent to Stina, no feedback as of yet.

Data point: 32-bit JVM is now unable to reload InCommon metadata when running fully loaded with that metadata plus a few local sources that are a few megs in size and under some load. Guessing more sites may be hitting that soon.
