  • Proxied SAML authentication - Eclipse upgrade, got IdP + Jetty 9.4 java-idp-testbed working.  Now starting on the fun stuff.






  • Refactored more of the CSRF Listener than I said I would ( branch feature/anti-csrf-flowlistener) .
    • Add an includes list alongside the excludes list.  
    • Cleaned up default predicates and config.
    • Added full set of unit tests. 
    • Updated the implementation details Anti-CSRF FlowExecutionListener Implementation
    • Think the implementation is done...until somebody decides it needs more work etc.
  • If included in the IdP, I think the approach would be:
    • Import the implementation
    • Add the config - as by default it is disabled.
    • **Maybe update the important views to include the velocity logic to add the token (or not if no token present).  Hence a clean install will be ready to enable.
    • Document how to enabled it and what needs adding to views if you upgraded etc. (taken from the implementation doc above)
