35 Configuring WS-Security

This chapter describes how to set up WS-Security for WebCenter Portal applications (including Spaces and Framework applications) and related services and components based on your topology.

This section covers the following configurations:

Within these three topologies, configuration is described for the WebCenter Portal application (Spaces, for example), Oracle WebCenter Portal's Discussion Server, the Worklist service, and WSRP producers. These configurations and the steps for securing applications consuming Spaces APIs are covered in the following sections:

Audience

The content of this chapter is intended for Fusion Middleware administrators (users granted the Admin role through the Oracle WebLogic Server Administration Console). Users with the Monitor or Operator roles can view security information but cannot make changes. See also, Section 1.8, "Understanding Administrative Operations, Roles, and Tools."

Table 35-1 shows the tasks and sub-tasks to configure WS-Security for a simple WebCenter Portal topology.

35.1.2 Setting Up the WebCenter Portal Domain Keystore

The security credentials of the WebCenter Portal application, discussions server, BPEL server, and WSRP producers can be retrieved and managed using a Java Keystore (JKS). A keystore is a file that provides information about available public and private keys. Keys are used for a variety of purposes, including authentication and data integrity. User certificates and the trust points needed to validate the certificates of peers are also stored securely in the wallet or keystore. See the Oracle Fusion Middleware Security and Administrator's Guide for Web Services for information about JKS.

This section contains the following subsections:

35.1.2.1 Creating the WebCenter Portal Domain Keystore

This section describes how to create a keystore and keys using a Java Keystore (JKS). JKS is the proprietary keystore format defined by Sun Microsystems. To create and manage the keys and certificates in the JKS, use the keytool utility that is distributed with the Java JDK 6.

To create the WebCenter Portal domain keystore:

  1. Go to JDK_HOME/jdk/bin and open a command prompt.

  2. Using keytool, generate a key pair:

    keytool -genkeypair -keyalg RSA -dname "consumer_dname" -alias orakey
    
     -keypass key_password -keystore keystore -storepass keystore_password -validity days_valid
    

    Where:

    • consumer_dname is the name of the consumer. This can be any string as long as it's in the correct format (for example, cn=spaces,dc=example,dc=com)

    • key_password is the password for the new public key, (for example, MyPassword1)

    • keystore is the keystore name, (for example, default-keystore.jks)

    • keystore_password is the keystore password, (for example, MyPassword1)

    • days_valid is the number of days for which the key password is valid (for example, 1064).

      Example 35-1 Generating the Keypair

      keytool -genkeypair -keyalg RSA -dname "cn=spaces,dc=example,dc=com" -alias orakey 
      
      -keypass MyPassword1 -keystore default-keystore.jks -storepass MyPassword1 -validity 1064
      

    Note:

    You must use the -keyalg parameter and specify RSA as its value as shown above as the default algorithm (DSA) used by keytool for generating the key is incompatible with Oracle WebServices Security Manager requirements.

  3. Export the certificate containing the public key:

    keytool -exportcert -v -alias orakey -keystore keystore -storepass keystore_password -rfc -file orakey.cer
    

    Where:

    • keystore is the keystore name, (for example, default-keystore.jks)

    • keystore_password is the keystore password, (for example, MyPassword1)

    Example 35-2 Exporting the Certificate Containing the Public Key

    keytool -exportcert -v -alias orakey -keystore default-keystore.jks -storepass MyPassword1 -rfc -file orakey.cer
    
  4. Import the certificate with the alias webcenter_spaces_ws (select Yes when prompted whether to overwrite the existing certificate with the alias orakey):

    keytool -importcert -alias webcenter_spaces_ws -file orakey.cer
    
     -keystore default-keystore.jks -storepass keystore_password
    

    Where:

    • keystore_password is the keystore password

    Example 35-3 Importing the Certificate

    keytool -importcert -alias webcenter_spaces_ws -file orakey.cer -keystore default-keystore.jks -storepass MyPassword1
    
  5. Continue by configuring the keystore using either WLST as described in Section 35.1.2.2, "Configuring the Keystore with WLST," or using Fusion Middleware Control as described in Section 35.1.2.3, "Configuring the Keystore Using Fusion Middleware Control."

    Table 35-2 shows the keystore contents you should wind up with after creating and configuring the keystore.

    Table 35-2 Portal Domain Keystore Contents for a Simple Topology

    Key Alias Description

    orakey

    Key pair used to sign and encrypt outbound messages from Spaces. This key is used by both OWSM (Portlets and Worklist) and Discussions.

    webcenter_spaces_ws

    Certificate containing the public key for the orakey private key used in the WebCenter Portal domain. The certificate is used to encrypt outbound WebService messages from the Workflow application on BPEL Server1 in the WebCenter Portal domain, to the WebService APIs on WebCenter Portal domain.


35.1.2.2 Configuring the Keystore with WLST

After creating the keystore, configure the keystore service and update the credential store so that OWSM can read the keystore and keys correctly. You can do this using either Fusion Middleware control, as described in Section 35.1.2.3, "Configuring the Keystore Using Fusion Middleware Control," or using WLST as described below.

To configure the credential store:

  1. Go to the <DOMAIN_HOME>/config/fmwconfig directory, and open the file jps-config.xml in an editor.

  2. Locate the <serviceInstance node for the keystore.provider Provider:

    <serviceInstance name="keystore" provider="keystore.provider" location="./default-keystore.jks">
    <description>Default JPS Keystore Service</description>
    
  3. Make sure that the default-keystore.jks keystore file is copied to the <DOMAIN_HOME>/config/fmwconfig directory, and that the location is specified as ./default-keystore.jks:

    <serviceInstance name="keystore" provider="keystore.provider" location="./default-keystore.jks">
    <description>Default JPS Keystore Service</description>
    
  4. Use the following WLST commands to update the credential store:

    updateCred(map="oracle.wsm.security", key="keystore-csf-key", user="owsm", password=keystore_password, desc="Keystore key")
    updateCred(map="oracle.wsm.security", key="enc-csf-key", user="orakey", password=private_key_password, desc="Encryption key")
    updateCred(map="oracle.wsm.security", key="sign-csf-key", user="orakey", password=private_key_password, desc="Signing key")
    

    Where:

    Example 35-4 Updating the Credential Store

    updateCred(map="oracle.wsm.security", key="keystore-csf-key", user="owsm", password="MyPassword1", desc="Keystore key")
    updateCred(map="oracle.wsm.security", key="enc-csf-key", user="orakey", password="MyPassword1", desc="Encryption key")
    updateCred(map="oracle.wsm.security", key="sign-csf-key", user="orakey", password="MyPassword1", desc="Signing key")
    
  5. Restart all servers.

35.1.2.3 Configuring the Keystore Using Fusion Middleware Control

After creating the keystore, configure the keystore service and update the credential store so that OWSM can read the keystore and keys correctly. You can do this using either WLST, as described in Section 35.1.2.2, "Configuring the Keystore with WLST," or using Fusion Middleware control as described below.

To configure the keystore provider:

  1. Ensure that the default-keystore.jks keystore file is copied to the <DOMAIN_HOME>/config/fmwconfig directory, and then specify the location as ./default-keystore.jks.

  2. Open Fusion Middleware Control and log in to the WebCenter Portal domain.

    For information on logging in to Fusion Middleware Control, see Chapter 6, "Starting Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control."

  3. In the Navigation pane, expand the WebLogic Domain node and click the WebCenter Portal domain (wc_domain by default).

  4. From the WebLogic Domain menu, select Security -> Security Provider Configuration.

    The Security Provider Configuration page displays.

  5. Expand the Keystore section on the Security Provider Configuration page.

  6. Click Configure.

    The Keystore Configuration page displays.

  7. Use the following settings to specify the location of the keystore that contains the certificate and private key, and the signature key and encryption key aliases:

    • Keystore Path: ./default-keystore.jks

    • Password: Enter and confirm the password for the keystore.

    • Key Alias: orakey

    • Signature Password: Enter and confirm the password for the signature key.

    • Crypt Alias: orakey

    • Crypt Password: Enter and confirm the password for the encryption key.

  8. Click OK to save your settings.

  9. Restart the Administration server for the domain.

35.1.3 Configuring the Discussions Server for a Simple Topology

In a simple topology, the discussions server is in the same domain as Spaces and consequently no extra keystore configuration is needed since the keystore configured for the WebCenter Portal domain is used for the Discussions service as well. However, for production environments you should protect the Discussion service Web service endpoints with an OWSM policy and configure the discussions server connection settings. These configuration steps are described in the following subsections:

Note:

Discussions-specific Web Services messages sent by WebCenter Portal applications to the Oracle WebCenter Portal's Discussions server are not encrypted. For message confidentiality, the discussions server URL must be accessed over Secure Socket Layer (SSL). For more information, see Chapter 34, "Configuring SSL."

35.1.3.1 Attaching Security Policies for Spaces and Discussions Web Service Endpoints

In a new or patched WebCenter Portal instance, the assigned security policy configuration is set to "no security policy." You must attach Oracle Web Services Manager (OWSM) security policies for the Spaces Web service endpoint and the Discussions authenticated Web service endpoint. For a production environment, continue by hardening the security by following the steps in Section 35.1.3.2, "Securing the Discussions Service Endpoints."

Note:

In a patched WebCenter Portal instance, you must determine the policy names before you patch, then attach the policies after you patch. For required steps, see "Patching Oracle WebCenter Portal" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Patching Guide.

To attach the Web service security policy configuration in a new instance:

Note:

For clustered environments, repeat these steps for each of the managed servers where Spaces and Discussions are deployed.

  1. Ensure that the WC_Spaces and WC_Collaboration managed servers are running.

  2. Run the following WLST command to attach an OWSM policy on the Spaces Web service endpoint:

    attachWebServicePolicy(application='webcenter', moduleName='webcenter', moduleType='web', serviceName='SpacesWebService',
    subjectName='SpacesWebServiceSoapHttpPort', policyURI='oracle/wss11_saml_token_with_message_protection_service_policy')
    
  3. Run the following WLST command to attach an OWSM policy on the Discussions Web service endpoint:

    attachWebServicePolicy(application='owc_discussions', moduleName='owc_discussions', moduleType='web', serviceName='OWCDiscussionsServiceAuthenticated',
    subjectName='OWCDiscussionsServiceAuthenticated', policyURI='oracle/wss10_saml_token_service_policy')
    
  4. Restart the WC_Spaces and WC_Collaboration managed servers.

35.1.3.2 Securing the Discussions Service Endpoints

The WebCenter Portal's Discussions service's Web service endpoints require user identity to be propagated for calls originating from Spaces. For a production environment, the Web service endpoints must be secured with OWSM policies to ensure that messages are not tampered with, and can't be viewed by others while in transit. To do this, both the public access Web service endpoint and authenticated user access endpoint should be secured with the appropriate OWSM policies using either Fusion Middleware Control or WLST.

This section contains the following subsections:

35.1.3.2.1 Securing the Discussions Server Endpoints Using Fusion Middleware Control

To secure the Discussions service endpoints using Fusion Middleware Control, follow the steps below:

  1. Log in to Fusion Middleware Control and from the Navigation pane, expand WebCenter> Portal> Discussions and click Discussions (WC_Collaboration).

    The Discussions home page displays (see Figure 35-3).

    Figure 35-3 Discussions Home Page

  7. Click OK.

  8. Return to the Web Services page and click the OWCDiscussionsServicePublic endpoint.

  9. Attach oracle/wss11_message_protection_service_policy so that the public user Web service endpoint is also secured.

  10. Click OK.

35.1.3.2.2 Securing the Discussions Server Endpoints Using WLST

To secure the discussions server endpoints using WLST, detach the wss10_saml_token_service_policy and attach the wss11_saml_token_with_message_protection_service_policy using the following WLST commands:

detachWebServicePolicy(application='owc_discussions', moduleName='owc_discussions', moduleType='web', serviceName='OWCDiscussionsServiceAuthenticated', subjectName='OWCDiscussionsServiceAuthenticated', policyURI='oracle/wss10_saml_token_service_policy')

attachWebServicePolicy(application='owc_discussions', moduleName='owc_discussions', moduleType='web', serviceName='OWCDiscussionsServiceAuthenticated', subjectName='OWCDiscussionsServiceAuthenticated', policyURI='oracle/wss11_saml_token_with_message_protection_service_policy')

35.1.3.3 Configuring the Discussions Server Connection Settings

You must supply the WS-Security client certificate information within the discussions server connection that is configured for Spaces or your WebCenter Portal application, as described in Section 14.3, "Registering Discussions Servers."

35.2.2 Setting Up the WebCenter Portal Domain Keystore

The security credentials of a WebCenter Portal application, discussions server, BPEL server (in a separate domain), and WSRP producers can be retrieved and managed using a Java Keystore (JKS). A keystore is a file that provides information about available public and private keys. Keys are used for a variety of purposes, including authentication and data integrity. User certificates and the trust points needed to validate the certificates of peers are also stored securely in the wallet or keystore. See the Oracle Fusion Middleware Security and Administrator's Guide for Web Services for information about JKS.

This section contains the following subsections:

35.2.2.1 Creating the WebCenter Portal Domain Keystore

This section describes how to create a keystore and keys using a Java Keystore (JKS). JKS is the proprietary keystore format defined by Sun Microsystems. To create and manage the keys and certificates in the JKS, use the keytool utility that is distributed with the Java JDK 6.

To create the WebCenter Portal domain keystore:

  1. Go to JDK_HOME/jdk/bin and open a command prompt.

  2. Using keytool, generate a key pair:

    keytool -genkeypair -keyalg RSA -dname "consumer_dname" -alias webcenter -keypass key_password -keystore keystore -storepass keystore_password -validity days_valid
    

    Where:

    • consumer_dname is the name of the consumer (for example, cn=spaces,dc=example,dc=com)

    • key_password is the password for the new public key, (for example, MyPassword1)

    • keystore is the keystore name, (for example, webcenter.jks)

    • keystore_password is the keystore password, (for example, MyPassword1)

    • days_valid is the number of days for which the key password is valid (for example, 1064).

      Example 35-5 Generating the Keypair

      keytool -genkeypair -keyalg RSA -dname "cn=spaces,dc=example,dc=com" -alias 
      
      webcenter -keypass MyPassword1 -keystore webcenter.jks -storepass MyPassword1 
      
      -validity 1064
      

    Note:

    You must use the -keyalg parameter and specify RSA as its value as shown above as the default algorithm (DSA) used by keytool for generating the key is incompatible with Oracle WebServices Security Manager requirements.

  3. Export the certificate containing the public key:

    keytool -exportcert -v -alias webcenter -keystore keystore 
    
    -storepass keystore_password -rfc -file webcenter_public.cer
    

    Where:

    • keystore is the keystore name, (for example, webcenter.jks)

    • keystore_password is the keystore password, (for example, MyPassword1)

    Example 35-6 Exporting the Certificate Containing the Public Key

    keytool -exportcert -v -alias webcenter -keystore webcenter.jks 
    
    -storepass MyPassword1 -rfc -file webcenter_public.cer
    
  4. Continue by configuring the keystore using either WLST, as described in Section 35.2.2.2, "Configuring the Keystore Using WLST," or Fusion Middleware Control, as described in Section 35.2.2.3, "Configuring the Keystore Using Fusion Middleware Control."

    Table 35-4 shows the keystore contents you should wind up with after creating and configuring the keystore.

    Table 35-4 WebCenter Portal Domain Keystore Contents for a Typical Topology

    Key Alias Description

  7. Click OK to save your settings.

  8. Restart the Administration server for the domain.

35.2.3 Configuring the Discussions Server for a Typical Topology

Configuring the discussions server for a typical topology is exactly the same as for a simple topology. For more information, see Section 35.1.3, "Configuring the Discussions Server for a Simple Topology."

35.2.4 Setting Up the SOA Domain

This section describes how to set up the SOA domain keystore and contains the following subsections:

35.2.4.1 Creating the SOA Domain Keystore

This section describes how to create a SOA domain keystore and keys using a Java Keystore (JKS).

To create the SOA domain keystore:

  1. Go to JDK_HOME/jdk/bin and open a command prompt.

  2. Create a keystore by importing the public certificate (webcenter_public.cer) from the WebCenter Portal domain:

    keytool -importcert -alias webcenter_spaces_ws -file webcenter_public.cer
    
     -keystore bpel.jks -storepass keystore_password
    

    Where:

    • keystore_password is the keystore password, (for example, MyPassword1)

    • Example 35-8 Importing the Public Certificate

      keytool -importcert -alias webcenter_spaces_ws -file webcenter_public.cer -keystore bpel.jks -storepass MyPassword1
      
  3. Using keytool, create a keypair to be used in the SOA domain for signing and encrypting messages:

    keytool -genkeypair -keyalg RSA -dname "consumer_dname" -alias bpel
    
     -keypass key_password -keystore keystore -storepass keystore_password
    
     -validity days_valid
    

    Where:

    • consumer_dname is the name of the consumer (for example, cn=bpel,dc=example,dc=com)

    • key_password is the password for the new public key, (for example, MyPassword1)

    • keystore is the keystore name, (for example, bpel.jks)

    • keystore_password is the keystore password, (for example, MyPassword1)

    • days_valid is the number of days for which the key password is valid (for example, 1064).

      Example 35-9 Generating the Keypair

      keytool -genkeypair -keyalg RSA -dname "cn=bpel,dc=example,dc=com" -alias bpel 
      
      -keypass MyPassword1 -keystore bpel.jks -storepass MyPassword1 -validity 1064
      

    Note:

    You must use the -keyalg parameter and specify RSA as its value as shown above as the default algorithm (DSA) used by keytool for generating the key is incompatible with Oracle WebServices Security Manager requirements.

  4. Export the certificate so it can be imported in the WebCenter Portal domain using the orakey alias:

    keytool -exportcert -v -alias bpel -keystore keystore -storepass keystore_password -rfc -file orakey.cer
    

    Where:

    • keystore is the keystore name, (for example, webcenter.jks)

    • keystore_password is the keystore password, (for example, MyPassword1)

    Example 35-10 Exporting the Certificate Containing the Public Key

    keytool -exportcert -v -alias bpel -keystore bpel.jks -storepass MyPassword1 -rfc -file orakay.cer
    
  5. Import the certificate with a different alias (select Yes when prompted whether to overwrite the existing certificate with the alias orakey):

    keytool -importcert -alias orakey -file orakey.cer -keystore webcenter.jks -storepass keystore_password
    

    Where:

    • keystore_password is the keystore password

    Example 35-11 Importing the Certificate

    keytool -importcert -alias orakey -file orakay.cer -keystore webcenter.jks -storepass MyPassword1
    

35.2.4.2 Configuring the Keystore Using WLST

Table 35-5 shows the tasks and sub-tasks to configure WS-Security for a complex WebCenter Portal topology.

35.3.2 Setting Up the WebCenter Portal Domain Keystores

The security credentials of Spaces, discussions server, BPEL servers (in separate domains), and WSRP producers (also in separate domains) can be retrieved and managed using a Java Keystore (JKS). A keystore is a file that provides information about available public and private keys. Keys are used for a variety of purposes, including authentication and data integrity. User certificates and the trust points needed to validate the certificates of peers are also stored securely in the wallet or keystore. See the Oracle Fusion Middleware Security and Administrator's Guide for Web Services for information about JKS.

This section contains the following subsections:

35.3.2.1 Creating the WebCenter Portal Domain Keystores

This section describes how to create the keystores and keys using a Java Keystore (JKS). JKS is the proprietary keystore format defined by Sun Microsystems. To create and manage the keys and certificates in the JKS, use the keytool utility that is distributed with the Java JDK 6.

To create the WebCenter Portal domain keystores:

  1. Go to JDK_HOME/jdk/bin and open a command prompt.

  2. Using keytool, generate a key pair for the webcenter keystore:

    keytool -genkeypair -keyalg RSA -dname "consumer_dname" -alias webcenter -keypass key_password -keystore keystore -storepass keystore_password -validity days_valid
    

    Where:

    • consumer_dname is the name of the consumer (for example, cn=spaces,dc=example,dc=com)

    • key_password is the password for the new public key, (for example, MyPassword1)

    • keystore is the keystore name, (for example, webcenter.jks)

    • keystore_password is the keystore password, (for example, MyPassword1)

    • days_valid is the number of days for which the key password is valid (for example, 1064).

      Example 35-12 Generating the Keypair

      keytool -genkeypair -keyalg RSA -dname "cn=spaces,dc=example,dc=com" -alias webcenter -keypass MyPassword1 -keystore webcenter.jks -storepass MyPassword1 -validity 1064
      

    Note:

    You must use the -keyalg parameter and specify RSA as its value as shown above as the default algorithm (DSA) used by keytool for generating the key is incompatible with Oracle WebServices Security Manager requirements.

  3. Export the certificate containing the public key:

    keytool -exportcert -v -alias webcenter -keystore wecenter.jks -storepass keystore_password -rfc -file webcenter_public.cer
    

    Where:

    • keystore_password is the keystore password, (for example, MyPassword1)

    Example 35-13 Exporting the Certificate Containing the Public Key

    keytool -exportcert -v -alias webcenter -keystore webcenter.jks -storepass MyPassword1 -rfc -file webcenter_public.cer
    
  4. Import the orakey certificate:

    keytool -importcert -alias orakey -file orakey.cer -keystore webcenter.jks -storepass keystore_password
    

    Where:

    • keystore_password is the keystore password, (for example, MyPassword1)

    Example 35-14 Importing the orakey Certificate

    keytool -importcert -alias orakey -file orakey.cer -keystore webcenter.jks -storepass MyPassword1
    
  5. Continue by configuring the keystore using either WLST, as described in Section 35.3.2.2, "Configuring the Keystore Using WLST," or using Fusion Middleware Control, as described in Section 35.3.2.3, "Configuring the Keystore Using Fusion Middleware Control."

    Table 35-6 shows the keystore contents you should wind up with after creating and configuring the keystore.

    Table 35-6 WebCenter Portal Domain Keystore Contents for a Complex Topology

    Certificate containing public key for the external owc_discussions private key used in the external Discussions domain that hosts the Discussions application. This certificate is used by Spaces and WebCenter Portal applications make WebService calls to the Discussions WebService.


35.3.2.2 Configuring the Keystore Using WLST

After creating the WebCenter Portal domain keystore, configure the keystore service and update the credential store so that OWSM can read the keystore and keys correctly.

To configure the keystore service:

  1. Go to the <DOMAIN_HOME>/config/fmwconfig directory, and open the file jps-config.xml in an editor.

  2. Locate the <serviceInstance node for the keystore.provider Provider

  3. Ensure that the webcenter.jks keystore file is copied to the <DOMAIN_HOME>/config/fmwconfig directory, and then specify the location as ./webcenter.jks.

  4. Use the following WLST commands to update the credential store:

    updateCred(map="oracle.wsm.security", key="keystore-csf-key", user="owsm", password="MyPassword1", desc="Keystore key")
    updateCred(map="oracle.wsm.security", key="enc-csf-key", user="webcenter", password="MyPassword1", desc="Encryption key")
    updateCred(map="oracle.wsm.security", key="sign-csf-key", user="webcenter", password="MyPassword1", desc="Signing key")
    
  5. Restart all servers.

35.3.2.3 Configuring the Keystore Using Fusion Middleware Control

After creating the keystore, configure the keystore service and update the credential store so that OWSM can read the keystore and keys correctly.

To configure the keystore provider:

  1. Open Fusion Middleware Control and log in to the WebCenter Portal domain.

    For information on logging in to Fusion Middleware Control, see Chapter 6, "Starting Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control."

  2. In the Navigation pane, expand the WebLogic Domain node and click the WebCenter Portal domain (wc_domain by default).

  3. From the WebLogic Domain menu, select Security -> Security Provider Configuration.

    • Keystore Path: ./webcenter.jks

    • Password: Enter and confirm the password for the keystore.

    • Key Alias: webcenter

    • Signature Password: Enter and confirm the password for the signature key.

    • Crypt Alias: webcenter

    • Crypt Password: Enter and confirm the password for the encryption key.

  7. Click OK to save your settings.

  8. Restart the Administration server for the domain.

35.3.3 Configuring the Discussions Server for a Complex Topology

In a complex topology, the discussions server is in a different domain than Spaces and consequently you will need to create and configure a keystore for the discussions server and export the certificate containing the public key and import it into the WebCenter Portal domain. For production environments you will also need to protect the Discussion service Web service endpoints with an OWSM policy and configure the discussions server connection settings. These configuration steps are described in the following subsections:

Note:

Discussions-specific Web services messages sent by Framework applications to the WebCenter Portal's Discussions Server are not encrypted. For message confidentiality, the discussions server URL must be accessed over Secure Socket Layer (SSL). For more information, see Chapter 34, "Configuring SSL."

35.3.3.1 Securing the Discussions Service Endpoints

The WebCenter Portal's Discussions service Web service endpoints require user identity to be propagated for calls originating from Spaces. Follow the steps in Section 35.1.3.2, "Securing the Discussions Service Endpoints" to secure the endpoints using either Fusion Middleware Control or WLST.

35.3.3.2 Creating the Discussions Server Keystore

This section describes how to create a keystore for the discussions server that contains the key pair used by OWSM, and export the certificate containing the public key so it can be imported into the WebCenter Portal domain.

To create the owc_discussions keystore:

  1. Go to JDK_HOME/jdk/bin and open a command prompt.

  2. Using keytool, generate a key pair for the owc_discussions keystore:

    keytool -genkeypair -keyalg RSA -dname "consumer_dname" -alias owc_discussions -keypass key_password -keystore keystore -storepass keystore_password -validity days_valid
    

    Where:

    • consumer_dname is the name of the consumer (for example, cn=owc_discussions,dc=example,dc=com)

    • key_password is the password for the new public key, (for example, MyPassword1)

    • keystore is the keystore name, (for example, owc_discussions.jks)

    • keystore_password is the keystore password, (for example, MyPassword1)

    • days_valid is the number of days for which the key password is valid (for example, 1064).

      Example 35-15 Generating the Keypair

      keytool -genkeypair -keyalg RSA -dname "cn=owc_discussions,dc=example,dc=com" -alias owc_discussions -keypass MyPassword1 -keystore owc_discussions.jks
      -storepass MyPassword1 -validity 1064
      

    Note:

    You must use the -keyalg parameter and specify RSA as its value as shown above as the default algorithm (DSA) used by keytool for generating the key is incompatible with Oracle WebServices Security Manager requirements.

  3. Export the certificate containing the public key:

    keytool -exportcert -v -alias owc_discussions -keystore owc_discussions.jks -storepass keystore_password -rfc -file owc_discussions_public.cer
    

    Where:

    • keystore_password is the keystore password, (for example, MyPassword1)

    Example 35-16 Exporting the Certificate Containing the Public Key

    keytool -exportcert -v -alias owc_discussions -keystore owc_discussions.jks -storepass MyPassword1 -rfc -file owc_discussions_public.cer
    
  4. Import the webcenter_public certificate:

    keytool -importcert -alias webcenter_public -file webcenter_public.cer -keystore owc_discussions.jks -storepass keystore_password
    

    Where:

    • keystore_password is the keystore password, (for example, MyPassword1)

    Example 35-17 Importing the webcenter_public Certificate

    keytool -importcert -alias webcenter_public -file webcenter_public.cer -keystore owc_discussions.jks -storepass MyPassword1
    
  5. Import the owc_discussions_public certificate:

    keytool -importcert -alias owc_discussions_public -file owc_discussions_public.cer -keystore webcenter.jks -storepass keystore_password
    

    Where:

    • keystore_password is the keystore password, (for example, MyPassword1)

    Example 35-18 Importing the owc_discussions_public Certificate

    keytool -importcert -alias owc_discussions_public -file owc_discussions_public.cer -keystore webcenter.jks -storepass MyPassword1
    
  6. Continue by updating the credential store using WLST as described in Section 35.3.3.3, "Updating the Credential Store."

35.3.3.3 Updating the Credential Store

After creating the WebCenter Portal domain keystore, configure the keystore service and update the credential store so that OWSM can read the keystore and keys correctly.

To configure the keystore service:

  1. Go to the <DOMAIN_HOME>/config/fmwconfig directory, and open the file jps-config.xml in an editor.

  2. Locate the <serviceInstance node for the keystore.provider Provider:

    <!-- KeyStore Service Instance -->
    <serviceInstance name="keystore" provider="keystore.provider" location="./default-keystore.jks">
    <description>Default JPS Keystore Service</description>
    
  3. Make sure that the webcenter.jks keystore file is copied to the <DOMAIN_HOME>/config/fmwconfig directory, and then specify the location as ./webcenter.jks.

    <serviceInstance name="keystore" provider="keystore.provider" location="./webcenter.jks">
    <description>Default JPS Keystore Service</description>
    
  4. Use the following WLST commands to update the credential store:

    updateCred(map="oracle.wsm.security", key="keystore-csf-key", user="owsm", password="MyPassword1", desc="Keystore key")
    updateCred(map="oracle.wsm.security", key="enc-csf-key", user="owc_discussions", password="MyPassword1", desc="Encryption key")
    updateCred(map="oracle.wsm.security", key="sign-csf-key", user="owc_discussions", password="MyPassword1", desc="Signing key")
    
  5. Restart all servers.

35.3.3.4 Configuring the Discussions Server Connection Settings

You must supply the WS-Security client certificate information within the discussions server connection that is configured for Spaces or your Framework application, as described in Section 14.3, "Registering Discussions Servers." Figure 35-15 shows example connection detail settings for the Edit Discussions and Announcement Connection page.

35.3.4 Setting Up the First SOA Domain

This section describes how to set up the SOA domain keystore and contains the following subsections:

35.3.4.1 Creating the SOA Domain Keystore

This section describes how to create a SOA domain keystore and keys using a Java Keystore (JKS).

To create the SOA domain keystore:

  1. Go to JDK_HOME/jdk/bin and open a command prompt.

  2. Create a keystore by importing the public certificate (webcenter_public.cer) from the WebCenter Portal domain:

    keytool -importcert -alias webcenter_spaces_ws -file webcenter_public.cer
    
     -keystore bpel.jks -storepass keystore_password
    

    Where:

    • keystore_password is the keystore password, (for example, MyPassword1)

    • Example 35-19 Importing the Public Certificate

      keytool -importcert -alias webcenter_spaces_ws -file webcenter_public.cer -keystore bpel.jks -storepass MyPassword1
      
  3. Using keytool, create a keypair to be used in the SOA domain for signing and encrypting messages:

    keytool -genkeypair -keyalg RSA -dname "consumer_dname" -alias bpel -keypass key_password -keystore bpel.jks -storepass keystore_password -validity days_valid
    

    Where:

    • consumer_dname is the name of the consumer (for example, cn=bpel,dc=example,dc=com)

    • key_password is the password for the new public key, (for example, MyPassword1)

    • keystore_password is the keystore password, (for example, MyPassword1)

    • days_valid is the number of days for which the key password is valid (for example, 1064).

      Example 35-20 Generating the Keypair

      keytool -genkeypair -keyalg RSA -dname "cn=bpel,dc=example,dc=com" -alias bpel 
      
      -keypass MyPassword1 -keystore bpel.jks -storepass MyPassword1 -validity 1064
      

    Note:

    You must use the -keyalg parameter and specify RSA as its value as shown above as the default algorithm (DSA) used by keytool for generating the key is incompatible with Oracle WebServices Security Manager requirements.

  4. Export the certificate so it can be imported in the WebCenter Portal domain using the orakey alias:

    keytool -exportcert -v -alias bpel -keystore bpel.jks -storepass keystore_password -rfc -file orakey.cer
    

    Where:

    • keystore_password is the keystore password (for example, MyPassword1)

    Example 35-21 Exporting the Certificate Containing the Public Key

    keytool -exportcert -v -alias bpel -keystore bpel.jks -storepass MyPassword1 -rfc -file orakay.cer
    
  5. Import the certificate to the WebCenter Portal domain again with a different alias (select Yes when prompted whether to overwrite the existing certificate with the alias orakey):

    keytool -importcert -alias orakey -file orakey.cer -keystore webcenter.jks -storepass keystore_password
    

    Where:

    • keystore_password is the keystore password (for example, MyPassword1)

    Example 35-22 Importing the Certificate

    keytool -importcert -alias orakey -file orakay.cer -keystore webcenter.jks -storepass MyPassword1
    
  6. Import the certificate to the into the SOA domain:

    keytool -importcert -alias soa_server3_public_key -file soa_server3_public_key.cer -keystore webcenter.jks -storepass keystore_password
    

    Where:

    • keystore_password is the keystore password (for example, MyPassword1)

    Example 35-23 Importing the Certificate

35.3.5 Setting Up the Second SOA Domain

This section describes how to set up a second SOA domain keystore and contains the following subsections:

35.3.5.1 Creating the SOA Domain Keystore

This section describes how to create a SOA domain keystore and keys using a Java Keystore (JKS).

To create the SOA domain keystore:

  1. Go to JDK_HOME/jdk/bin and open a command prompt.

  2. Using keytool, create a keypair to be used in the SOA domain for signing and encrypting messages:

    keytool -genkeypair -keyalg RSA -dname "consumer_dname" -alias soa_server3
    
     -keypass key_password -keystore soa_server3.jks -storepass keystore_password
    
     -validity days_valid
    

    Where:

    • consumer_dname is the name of the consumer (for example, cn=soa_server3,dc=example,dc=com)

    • key_password is the password for the new public key, (for example, MyPassword1)

    • keystore_password is the keystore password, (for example, MyPassword1)

    • days_valid is the number of days for which the key password is valid (for example, 1064).

      Example 35-24 Generating the Keypair

      keytool -genkeypair -keyalg RSA -dname "cn=soa_server3,dc=example,dc=com" -alias 
      
      soa_server3 -keypass MyPassword1 -keystore soa_server3.jks -storepass MyPassword1 
      
      -validity 1064
      

    Note:

    You must use the -keyalg parameter and specify RSA as its value as shown above as the default algorithm (DSA) used by keytool for generating the key is incompatible with Oracle WebServices Security Manager requirements.

  3. Export the certificate so it can be imported in the WebCenter Portal domain using the orakey alias:

    keytool -exportcert -v -alias soa_server3 -keystore soa_server3.jks
    
     -storepass keystore_password -rfc -file soa_server3_public_key.cer
    

    Where:

    • keystore_password is the keystore password, (for example, MyPassword1)

    Example 35-25 Exporting the Certificate Containing the Public Key

    keytool -exportcert -v -alias soa_server3 -keystore soa_server3.jks 
    
    -storepass MyPassword1 -rfc -file soa_server3_public_key.cer
    
  4. Import the certificate to the WebCenter Portal domain with a different alias (select Yes when prompted whether to overwrite the existing certificate with the alias soa_server3_public_key):

    keytool -importcert -alias soa_server3_public_key -file soa_server3_public_
    
    key.cer  -keystore webcenter.jks -storepass keystore_password
    

    Where:

    • keystore_password is the keystore password (for example, MyPassword1)

    Example 35-26 Importing the Certificate

    keytool -importcert -alias soa_server3_public_key -file soa_server3_public_key.cer 
    
    -keystore webcenter.jks -storepass MyPassword1
    
  5. Import the soa_server3_public_key certificate:

    keytool -importcert -alias soa_server3_public_key -file soa_server3_public_key.cer -keystore webcenter.jks -storepass keystore_password
    

    Where:

    • keystore_password is the keystore password, (for example, MyPassword1)

    Example 35-27 Importing the soa_server3_public_key Certificate

    keytool -importcert -alias soa_server3_public_key -file soa_server3_public_key.cer -keystore webcenter.jks -storepass MyPassword1
    
  6. Import the producer_public_key certificate:

    keytool -importcert -alias producer_public_key -file producer_public_key.cer -keystore webcenter.jks -storepass keystore_password
    

    Where:

    • keystore_password is the keystore password, (for example, MyPassword1)

    Example 35-28 Importing the producer_public_key Certificate

    keytool -importcert -alias producer_public_key -file producer_public_key.cer -keystore webcenter.jks -storepass MyPassword1
    
  7. Import the external_webcenter_custom_public_key certificate:

    keytool -importcert -alias external_webcenter_custom_public_key -file external_webcenter_custom_public_key.cer -keystore webcenter.jks -storepass keystore_password
    

    Where:

    • keystore_password is the keystore password, (for example, MyPassword1)

    Example 35-29 Importing the external_webcenter_custom_public_key Certificate

    keytool -importcert -alias external_webcenter_custom_public_key -file external_webcenter_custom_public_key.cer -keystore webcenter.jks -storepass MyPassword1
    
  8. Continue by configuring the keystore using either WLST, as described in Section 35.3.5.2, "Configuring the Keystore Using WLST," or using Fusion Middleware Control as described in Section 35.3.5.3, "Configuring the Keystore Using Fusion Middleware Control."

35.3.5.4 Configuring the Spaces Worklist Connection for the Second SOA Server

Ordinarily, the Spaces Worklist connections uses the oracle/wss10_saml_token_with_message_protection_client_policy policy to secure outbound SOAP messages to SOA Server. However, in a complex deployment where the WebCenter Portal domain uses two or more Worklist connections simultaneously we need to create an additional OWSM policy and configure it so that the recipient key alias matches the alias of the certificate of the intended SOA server on the Spaces side.

Follow the steps below to use multiple Worklist connections simultaneously:

  1. Export the certificate from the external SOA domain and import it into the WebCenter Portal domain under a new alias (soa_server3_key in the following example).

  2. Use Fusion Middleware Control to create a new OWSM policy, and override the recipient key alias to use the same alias as above.

    1. In Fusion Middleware Control, from the WebLogic domain menu select Web Services -> Policies.

      The Web Services Policies page displays (see Figure 35-18).

      Figure 35-18 Web Services Policies Page

      Description of Figure 35-18 follows
      Description of "Figure 35-18 Web Services Policies Page"

    2. Select a client policy to use as a base for creating the new policy and click Create Like.

      The Create Policy page displays (see Figure 35-19).

      Figure 35-19 Create Policy Page

      Description of Figure 35-19 follows
      Description of "Figure 35-19 Create Policy Page"

    3. Enter a name for the new policy (for example, oracle_wss10_saml_token_with_message_protection_client_policy_soa_server3) and click Save.

      The new policy should now be listed on the Web Services Policies page.

    4. From the Web Services Policy page, select the new policy and click Edit.

    5. On the Edit Policy page, open the Configuration tab and click Edit.

    6. Override the recipient key alias with the value soa_server3_key and click Save.

  3. Create the BPEL connection to set the security policy to the policy created above using the following WLST command:

    setBPELConnection(appName='webcenter', name='WebCenter-Worklist-SOAServer3',url='<your_url>',
    policy='oracle/wss10_saml_token_with_message_protection_client_policy_soa_server3')

Configure the Discussions Server Connection

Supply the WS-Security client certificate information within the discussions server connection that is configured for Spaces or your Framework application, as described in Section 14.3, "Registering Discussions Servers." Also see Section 35.3.3.4, "Configuring the Discussions Server Connection Settings" for example connection detail settings for the Edit Discussions and Announcement Connection page.

35.4 Securing Spaces for Applications Consuming Spaces Client APIs with WS-Security

This section describes the administrator tasks required to configure WS-Security for Spaces so that the communication between the an application exposing Spaces APIs (the consumer) and Spaces (the producer) is secure, and that the identity of the user invoking the APIs is protected.

For information about the developer tasks for developing applications that consume Spaces client APIs, see "How to Set Up Your Framework application to Use the WebCenter Spaces APIs" in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Developer's Guide for Oracle WebCenter Portal.

This section includes the following subsections:

35.4.1 Configuring a Simple Topology for Applications Consuming Spaces Client APIs

If your client application is part of the same domain as Spaces, you only need to specify the following for the GroupSpaceWSContext():

GroupSpaceWSContext context = new GroupSpaceWSContext();
context.setRecipientKeyAlias("orakey");

If your client application is JDeveloper and you have access to the Spaces server's configured keystore, copy the same keystore to JDeveloper's DefaultDomain/config/fmwconfig/dir and configure the JDeveloper domain to use this keystore. The steps here would be exactly same as those in Section 35.1.2.2, "Configuring the Keystore with WLST", and you would then also need to specify the following on your client stub:

GroupSpaceWSContext context = new GroupSpaceWSContext();
context.setRecipientKeyAlias("orakey");

35.4.2 Configuring a Typical Topology for Applications Consuming Spaces Client APIs

If your client application is part of the same domain as Spaces, you only need to specify the following for the GroupSpaceWSContext():

GroupSpaceWSContext context = new GroupSpaceWSContext();
context.setRecipientKeyAlias("webcenter");

If your client application is JDeveloper and you have access to the Spaces server's configured keystore, copy the same keystore to JDeveloper's DefaultDomain/config/fmwconfig/dir and configure the JDeveloper domain to use this keystore. The steps here would be exactly same as those in Section 35.2.2.2, "Configuring the Keystore Using WLST", and you would then also need to specify the following on your client stub:

GroupSpaceWSContext context = new GroupSpaceWSContext();
context.setRecipientKeyAlias("webcenter");

35.4.3 Configuring a Complex Topology for Applications Consuming Spaces Client APIs

If your client application is part of the same domain as Spaces, you only need to specify the following for the GroupSpaceWSContext():

GroupSpaceWSContext context = new GroupSpaceWSContext();
context.setRecipientKeyAlias("webcenter");

If your client application is JDeveloper, copy the same keystore to JDeveloper's DefaultDomain/config/fmwconfig/dir and configure the JDeveloper domain to use this keystore. The steps here would be exactly same as those in Section 35.3.2.2, "Configuring the Keystore Using WLST", and you would then also need to specify the following on your client stub:

GroupSpaceWSContext context = new GroupSpaceWSContext();
context.setRecipientKeyAlias("webcenter");
