30 Enabling Secure Cookies

By default, Oracle Identity Manager can be accessed over HTTP but does not work over Secure Socket Layer (SSL). This is because the cookie-secure flag is disabled by default. The cookie-secure flag tells the Web browser to only send the cookie back over an HTTPS connection. This ensures that the cookie is transmitted only on a secure channel. HTTPS must be enabled for the URL exposed by the application.

To enable Oracle Identity Manager to work over SSL, you must enable the cookie-secure flag. To do so:

  1. Add the <cookie-secure>true</cookie-secure> tag inside the <session-descriptor> element to the following files in the Oracle Identity Manager deployment:

    • OIM_HOME/apps/oim.ear/admin.war/WEB-INF/weblogic.xml

    • OIM_HOME/apps/oim.ear/iam-consoles-faces.war/WEB-INF/weblogic.xml

    • OIM_HOME/apps/oim.ear/xlWebApp.war/WEB-INF/weblogic.xml

  2. Create a new weblogic.xml file for Nexaweb application if it does not exist in its WEB-INF/ directory.

  3. Add the following session descriptor in it:

    <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
    <weblogic-web-app
      xmlns="http://xmlns.oracle.com/weblogic/weblogic-web-app/1.0"
      xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
      xsi:schemaLocation="http://xmlns.oracle.com/weblogic/weblogic-web-app/1.0   http://xmlns.oracle.com/weblogic/weblogic-web-app/1.0/weblogic-web-app.xsd">
     
      <session-descriptor>
        <persistent-store-type>replicated_if_clustered</persistent-store-type>
        <cookie-http-only>false</cookie-http-only>
        <cookie-name>oimjsessionid</cookie-name>
        <cookie-secure>true</cookie-secure>
        <url-rewriting-enabled>false</url-rewriting-enabled>
      </session-descriptor>
     
    </weblogic-web-app>
    
  4. Save weblogic.xml.

  5. Restart the Oracle Identity Manager Managed Servers.
