IMPORTANT NOTICE


Potential cross-site scripting vulnerabiltity via macros in event page template files

Some IBM Tivoli Federated Identity Manager page macros might be vulnerable to cross site scripting attacks when their values are not properly encoded. Contact IBM Support for the list of macros that might be subjected to this issue. To remediate this, add the macros provided by IBM Support to the list of comma-separated tokens in the runtime custom property SPS.PageFactory.HtmlEscapedTokens. Add these macro so that their values are HTML-escaped in the template files. For example, if the list of macros provided is:

  • @EXAMPLE_MACRO1@
  • @EXAMPLE_MACRO2@
  • @EXAMPLE_MACRO3@

the value of the runtime custom property SPS.PageFactory.HtmlEscapedTokens with the above macros added can be:

@REQ_ADDR@,@DETAIL@,@EXCEPTION_STACK@,@EXCEPTION_MSG@,@RESPONSE@,@TARGET@,@DETAIL@,@SAMLSTATUS@,@EXAMPLE_MACRO1@,@EXAMPLE_MACRO2@,@EXAMPLE_MACRO3@

NOTE: Other macros that are prone to cross site scripting vulnerability can also be added to SPS.PageFactory.HtmlEscapedTokens. The value of this runtime custom property will be revised periodically and update as needed. For more information regarding the runtime custom property, access http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/tivihelp/v2r1/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.ibm.tivoli.fim.doc_6.2.0%2Freference%2FCustomPropsSPS.html.

Possible security exposure with IBM WebSphere Application Server with WS-Security enabled applications using LTPA tokens (CVE-2011-1377)

The security that the IBM WebSphere Application Server provides might be weaker than expected when using web services security (WS-Security). A user might randomly gain elevated privileges on the provider system. WS-Security might assign the identity of a previously processed LTPA token to a new inbound LTPA token after authentication. This impacts applications using either JAX-WS and JAX-RPC.

Fix pack structure

Federated Identity Manager Business Gateway consists of the following components that can be installed separately:

  • Administration console
  • Management service and runtime component
  • Internet information services (IIS) Web plug-in
  • Apache/IBM HTTP Server Web plug-in
  • IBM Support Assistant plugin

This fix pack applies only to the administration console and management service and runtime components (first two components listed above). These two components must be at the same level. Therefore, if you install a fix pack for either the administration console component or the management service and runtime component, you must install the corresponding fix pack for the other of these two components. If the administration console and management service and runtime components are not at the same fix pack level, they are not guaranteed to interoperate with each other as designed.


APARs and defects fixed

Problems fixed by fix pack 6.2.0-TIV-TFIMBG-FP0009

The following problems are corrected by this fix pack. For more information about the APARs listed here, refer to the Federated Identity Manager Business Gateway support site.

APAR IV01293
SYMPTOM: ClassCastException is thrown when adding a SAML 2.0 Identity Provider as a partner. This problem happens when the metadata of the Identity Provider contains SAML attributes.

APAR IV01314
SYMPTOM: LTPA Token Module is not calculating the expiration date correctly. When a token is renewed, the expiration date is added to the userdata structure expiration array. The new expiration date is the last item added to the array. Tivoli Federated Identity Manager was incorrectly taking the first item on the array.

APAR IV01819
SYMPTOM: ClassCastException is thrown when configuring LDAP alias service using the IBM Tivoli Federated Identity Manager Command Line. This problem happens if at least one LDAP server exists in the system.

APAR IV01295
SYMPTOM: WEBSPHERE APPLICATION SERVER POC CREATE WAS SECURITY CONTEXT WITH INSUFFICIENT UNIQUE ID.

APAR IV01254
SYMPTOM: In some SAML error circumstances, Tivoli Federated Identity Manager returns a NullPointerException when attempting to display an error page or return a SAML error to an artifact retrieval request.

APAR IV01190
SYMPTOM: Empty-valued attributes in an STSUniversalUser XML document are not preserved by the Java implementation when converting from XML to Java and back to XML.

APAR IV01822
SYMPTOM: The value of the attribute "IsDefault" of all assertion consumer services of the SAML 2.0 Service Provider partner is changed to "true" after clicking the button "OK" or "Apply" in the Partner Properties page in the IBM Tivoli Federated Identity Manager Console.

APAR IV01319
SYMPTOM: SAML 2.0 STS Module fails to validate the subject confirmation method correctly when the assertion is received as part of the SAML 2.0 Single Sign On operation. The specification requires that an assertion that is generated as part of a Single Sign On flow should at least include one of the subject confirmation methods of value urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:cm:bearer.

APAR IV01315
SYMPTOM: SAML 2.0 SPS Module is setting the Destination attribute on LogoutReponse message when the request is received through SOAP binding at the Identity Provider and there is more than one Service Provider session that was authenticated based on the Identity Provider session. The Destination field might have the url for the incorrect partner that is not the one that sent the LogoutRequest.

APAR IV01318
SYMPTOM: The Tivoli Federated Identity Manager LTPA STS module support code is not thread safe. The code uses an static instance of a JDK class that is not thread safe causing undetermined results while verifying or generating the ltpa token signature on environments with high volume of transaction.

APAR IV03231
SYMPTOM: KERBEROS STS MODULE TO ENFORCE TOKEN ONE TIME USE.

APAR IV03050
SYMPTOM: Security update for the Tivoli Federated Identity Manager Management Console.

APAR IV01824
SYMPTOM: ClassCastException is thrown when adding and modifying LDAP host using the IBM Tivoli Federated Identity Manager Command Line. This problem happens if the parameter "hostPort" is not 389, or the parameter "minConnections" is not 2, or the parameter "maxConnections" is not 10.

APAR IZ03616
SYMPTOM: The SAML specification allows the Identity Provider not to include an issuer value on the SAMLResponse as long as the assertion includes the value. The Tivoli Federated Identity Manager SAML module was expecting for the issuer on the SAML Response to always be included. Such expectation was causing a Null Pointer Exception when the values was not included.

APAR IZ72928
SYMPTOM: Opening a Tivoli Federated Identity Manager page or portlet from WebSphere Application Server (WAS) ISC causes a JNDI exception of the type NameNotFoundException to be logged in the WAS server log.

APAR IZ91976
SYMPTOM: Tivoli Federated Identity Manager generates a NullPointerException when the SAMLResponse received from the Identity Provider does not include a Issuer value though the Issuer value is included in the assertion.

APAR IZ92245
SYMPTOM: Duplicate STS chain mappings are created when adding a SAML 2.0 Service Provider as a partner. This problem happens if the metadata of the Service Provider contains at least three distinct assertion consumer services with at least three distinct URLs.

APAR IZ94653
SYMPTOM: Ability for IVCRED STS Module to return error (default) or map to special user account for unauthenticated user token.

APAR IV01175
SYMPTOM: The SAML 2.0 SPS module invokes the alias service during a Single Logout operation on the Service Provider side although the email name ID format is used to single sign on the user. While the Single Logout Operation is successful, an error is included on the logs although the alias operation is not required.

APAR IZ96477
SYMPTOM: Mapping from single logout URL to protocol is deleted from the configuration file after clicking the button "OK" or "Apply" in the Federation Properties page in TFIM Console. This problem happens if the single logout bindings that are enabled are only HTTP-Redirect and SOAP. The missing mapping causes single logout operation to fail.

APAR IV01201
SYMPTOM: CommandException is thrown when exporting a key from a keystore using IBM Tivoli Federated Identity Manager Command Line. This problem happens if the parameter "exportPrivateKey" is specified with no value or with value "true".

APAR IV01202
SYMPTOM: ChainableRuntimeException is thrown when exporting a key from a keystore using the IBM Tivoli Federated Identity Manager Console. This problem happens if the IBM Tivoli Federated Identity Manager is deployed in certain WebSphere Application Server versions (e.g., WebSphere Application Server 7 Fix Pack 11).

APAR IV03048
SYMPTOM: Security update for the Tivoli Federated Identity Manager Management Console.

APAR IV03074
SYMPTOM: Security update for the Tivoli Federated Identity Manager Runtime.

Prerequisites

The following software must be installed before installing this fix pack:

Installation Instructions

Be aware of the following considerations before installing this fix pack:

Installation path specification for the Windows Server 2008 platform
This preinstallation item applies only to installations on a 64-bit Windows platform like Windows Server 2008.

Because Federated Identity Manager Business Gateway is a 32-bit application its default path when installing on Windows Server 2008 changes from

C:\Program Files\IBM\FIM

to:

C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\FIM

NOTE: The installation path name change also affects a 32-bit WebSphere Application Server on Windows Server 2008:

C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere

changes to:

C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\WebSphere

Fix pack packaging
This Tivoli Federated Identity Manager Business Gateway 6.2.0-TIV-TFIMBG-FP0009 patch package is provided on the Tivoli Support Web site as a single downloadable zip file for each supported platform. After you select the package that is appropriate for the target platform, download the package and unzip the contents into a target directory, typically the default WebSphere Update Installer directory, either

C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere\UpdateInstaller\maintenance

for Windows or

/opt/IBM/WebSphere/UpdateInstaller/maintenance

for Unix/Linux

You must unzip the downloaded file before you attempt to apply the patch. The unzipped contents are one or more pak files. Each pak file corresponds to one or more product components. For example, a fix pack might contain two pak files: one for the administration console and management service and runtime components, and one for the WSSM component. The full list of product components is described in Fix pack structure.

You use WebSphere Update Installer to apply the fixes of each pak file to the target component on the system that you are updating. Apply all of the pak files that are required by your installation to ensure that the software levels in your environment are identical for all of the components for which a pak file is supplied. The fixes are tested against all affected components; therefore, to minimize any possible issue that can arise from applying a partial fix, ensure the you apply the complete set of files. See Installing the fix pack for specific instructions on using Update installer to apply the fixes.

Automatic creation of a backup directory
The Update Installer saves backup copies of the files that it replaces during the installation. You do not need to manually backup the Federated Identity Manager Business Gateway files.

Preinstallation enablement requirement for installing the fix pack for the first time

If this is the first time you are applying the fix pack to Federated Identity Manager Business Gateway, you must download and install the enablement fix for Tivoli Federated Identity Manager Business Gateway.

NOTE: Perform the following steps only if this is the first time you are applying a fix pack. You will not need to perform these steps for subsequent product updates.
1. Download the enablement fix into the Federated Identity Manager Business Gateway installation directory (typically C:\Program Files\IBM\FIM on Windows systems, or /opt/IBM/FIM on UNIX-based systems) by clicking here.
2. Use the unzip option of the zip program for your operating system to unzip the file. On HP-UX, either use jar -xvf to unzip the file or download an unzip utility from the HPUX Connect site.

NOTE: If you are prompted to overwrite existing files, accept it so that the target files are overwritten.


Installing the fix pack

NOTE: Before installing this fix pack, be sure that you have reviewed the prerequisites in Before installing the fix pack.


Downloading the fix pack

To obtain the fix pack:
1. Go to the IBM Tivoli Federated Identity Manager Business Gateway Support Web site.
2. Click Download. The fix pack (6.2.0-TIV-TFIMBG-FP0009) should be listed under Latest by date. If you do not see this fix pack listed, enter "6.2.0-TIV-TFIMBG-FP0009" in the Search field to access the link to the download window.
3. In the fix pack download window, scroll to the bottom of the window to view a listing of the download packages by platform.
4. Select the platform that corresponds to the target platform where you will apply the fixes. To ensure a secure download, you can select the DD (Download Director) option. If you have not used Download Director before, you will need to configure your browser to use Java security. Click What is DD? for configuration instructions.

Setting the WebSphere security passwords

If security is enabled on the WebSphere Application Server where Federated Identity Manager Business Gateway is installed, you must set the appropriate password values in the fim.appservers.properties file before you can apply the fix pack.

If security is not enabled, you can skip this step.

NOTE: If you add passwords to the fim.appservers.properties file, as described below, you specify these passwords using plain text. However, at the end of the fix pack installation process these passwords are obfuscated and will no longer be available in plain text format.

To specify security passwords, use the following procedure:
1. Using a text editor, open the file FIM_INSTALL_DIR/etc/fim.appservers.properties.
2. If the was.security.enabled property is present in the fim.appservers.properties file and is set to true then you must add two password properties to the file:

  • the was.admin.user.pwd property with a value of the administrator login password for the WebSphere Application Server where Federated Identity Management Business Gateway is deployed
  • the was.truststore.pwd property with a value of the password for the trust store used for client-side SSL authentication in that WebSphere Application Server
For example,
  • was.admin.user.pwd=was_admin_pw
  • was.truststore.pwd=truststore_pw
3. If the ewas.security.enabled property is present in the fim.appservers.properties file and is set to true then you must add two password properties to the file:
  • the ewas.admin.user.pwd property with a value of the administrator login password for the Embedded WebSphere Application Server where Federated Identity Management Business Gateway is deployed
  • the ewas.truststore.pwd property with a value of the password for the trust store used for client-side SSL authentication in that Embedded WebSphere Application Server
For example,
  • ewas.admin.user.pwd=ewas_admin_pw
  • ewas.truststore.pwd=truststore_pw
4. Save and close the fim.appservers.properties file

Applying the fix pack
1. Unzip the file you downloaded in Downloading the fix pack, preferably into the default WebSphere Update Installer's maintenence directory,
C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere\UpdateInstaller\maintenance

for Windows.or

/opt/IBM/WebSphere/UpdateInstaller/maintenance

for Unix/Linux
2. Ensure that the WebSphere Application Server that hosts the Federated Identity Management Business Gateway runtime and management service component is running.
3. Ensure that the WebSphere Application Server that hosts the Federated Identity Management Business Gateway console component is running.
4. Start the appropriate WebSphere Update Installer (typically located in C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere\UpdateInstaller on Windows systems, or in /opt/IBM/WebSphere/UpdateInstaller on UNIX-based systems).
5. In the Welcome window click Next. Federated Identity Management Business Gateway will not be listed, but is supported.
6. Specify the path to the installation directory for Federated Identity Management Business Gateway (typically C:\Program Files\IBM\FIM on Windows systems, or /opt/IBM/FIM on UNIX-based systems), then click Next.
7. Select Install maintenance in the dialog.
8. Specify the path where the fix pack (.pak) files were unzipped. The Update Installer automatically detects, enables, and displays the FIM fixes (pak files).
9. Determine which product components are installed on the system that you are updating. You should install only the pak files that correspond to the components on the target system. To determine the names and version levels of the product components installed on the target system, view the contents of the FIM_INSTALL_DIR/etc/version.propeties file with a text editor. The following list describes how to interpret the properties in the version.properties file:

itfim.build.version.rte-mgmtsvcs=version
Specifies that the management service and runtime component is installed at the level specified by version.
itfim.build.version.mgmtcon=version
Specifies that the administration console component is installed at the level specified by version.
itfim.build.version.wsprov=version
Specifies that the WS-provisioning runtime component is installed at the level specified by version.
itfim.build.version.wssm=version
Specifies that the Web services security management (WSSM) component is installed at the level specified by version.
itfim.build.version.fimpi=version
Specifies that the Web plug-in (either the Internet information services (IIS) Web plug-in or the Apache/IBM HTTP Server Web plug-in) is installed at the level specified by version.

Apply the fix packs to the product components in the following order:
1. Management service and runtime and administration console>
2. Other components
10. Compare the list of installed components to the list of pak files in the WebSphere Update Installer and select the pak files that correspond to the installed components, then click Next.

Note: The WebSphere Update Installer allows you to select more than one pak file at a time for execution. Select only the pak files that correspond to the components that are installed on the system you are updating. If you accidentally install more pak files than are needed, you can separately uninstall any fix packs for components that are not installed on the target system.
11. If needed (for example, if you need to install multiple pak files on the target system, and you only installed one pak file), repeat the previous step to install any additional pak files on the target system.

Deploying the fix pack runtime component

The fix pack install automatically deploys the newly installed Federated Identity Manager Business Gateway runtime. However, you should verify that the current deployed version is 6.2.0.9.
1. Log in to the console and click Tivoli Federated Identity Manager-> Manage Configuration-> Domain Properties. The details of the components installed in the domain are listed.
2. Review the Runtime Information.
For example:
Runtime Information
----------------------------------------------
Current deployed version 6.2.0.9 [080922a]

Note: The number within the brackets [080922a] might be different from this example.
