Software AG Infrasructure 10.7 | Setting Up Security | Updating the Single Sign-On System for Your Product
 
Updating the Single Sign-On System for Your Product
The single sign-on (SSO) service issues and parses a signed SAML assertion that can be used as a single sign-on and delegation token. The default implementation uses the SAML 2 assertion issuance, however SAML 1.1 version is supported as well.
The bundles required for the SSO service are available within all Common Platform profiles. The SSO service requires a dynamic configuration properties file in order to work correctly. By default, your installation contains a com.softwareag.sso.pid.properties file in the Software AG_directory /profiles/profile_name/configuration/com.softwareag.platform.config.propsloader directory.
Important:
Software AG strongly recommends changing the default keystore and truststore files in a production environment.
The following table describes the parameters for dynamic configuration of the SSO service.
Parameter
Description

com.softwareag.security.idp.
SSOassertion.lifeperiod

com.softwareag.security.idp.
cache.ttl
Optional. The time for which the issued assertion lives in the cache (in seconds). Default is 120.
com.softwareag.security.idp.
assertion.skew
Optional. The grace period in seconds that is added to the beginning and end of the assertion validity interval. You can use this parameter together with com.softwareag.security.idp.assertion.lifeperiod or com.softwareag.security.idp.SSOassertion.lifeperiod for generation and consumption of assertions. Default is 30.
