IC96065: AAA POLICY DOES NOT WORK WITH GENERATED LTPA TOKEN
Fixes are available
Closed as program error.
An AAA policy does not work with generated LTPA token when running 22.214.171.124 while the same policy works when running 126.96.36.199. When this fails, a space (e.g.' ') is added to the distinguished name(DN) when generating the LTPA token. For example: <LTPAUserID>cn=9E1744, ou=swsapins, ou=ssa, o=u.s.government, c=us</LTPAUserID> The DN should not have any spaces. For example: <LTPAUserID>cn=9E1744,ou=swsapins,ou=ssa,o=u.s.government,c=us</ LTPAUserID>
As a workaround, apply a simple XPath in the map credentials where the XPath points to the 'entry' element. The map credential step changes the 'entry' attribute 'type' to 'xpath', but still pass along the entry value. This should prevent the name from being formatted with spaces. To implement the workaround, go to the AAA policy's ?credential mapping? tab: 1) Select ?Apply XPath expression? for the Method. 2) Enter The following: /*[local-name()='credentials']/*[local-name()='entry'] for the XPath expression. Here is an example of how this alters the AAA info: AU <credentials xmlns:dp="http://www.datapower.com/schemas/management" xmlns:env="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" > <entry type="xmlfile"> <OutputCredential xmlns="http://www.datapower.com/AAAInfo" >admin</OutputCredential> </entry> </credentials> MC <mapped-credentials type="xpath" au-success="true" xmlns:dp="http://www.datapower.com/schemas/management" xmlns:env="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" > <entry type="xpath">admin</entry> </mapped-credentials> In this example, the <OutputCredential> from the AAA info file is removed, and it takes the data defined by the element, but not the elements themselves, and then adds this data to the output of the entry type="xpath".
A user's DN might be formatted with spaces during the generation of an LTPA token. The spaces in the DN might cause a valid user to be rejected from a WebSphere Application Server.
