2 4 June 2002© 2001-2 TrueTrust Ltd2 Traditional Applications Authentication and Authorisation are Internal to the Application UserName/ Password Lists Access Control Lists Multiple passwords Multiple usernames Confusion!! Multiple Administrators High cost of administration No overall Security Policy

3 4 June 2002© 2001-2 TrueTrust Ltd3 Enter PKI Authentication is External to the Application Access Control Lists One password or pin to access private key Happy Users! Multiple Administrators High cost of administration No overall Security Policy Digital Signature Public Key Infrastructure Application Gateway

4 4 June 2002© 2001-2 TrueTrust Ltd4 Enter PMI Authentication and Authorisation are External to the Application One password or pin to access private key Happy Users! Fewer Administrators Lower cost of admin Overall Security Policy Digital Signature Public Key Infrastructure Application Gateway Privilege Management Infrastructure

8 4 June 2002© 2001-2 TrueTrust Ltd8 PERMIS PMI Components Privilege Policy Schema/DTD –This defines the rules that govern the creation of the Privilege Policy (Access Control Policy) Privilege Allocator –This tool allows an administrator to create and sign Attribute Certificates, including a Policy AC (this is a signed version of the Privilege Policy), and store them in an LDAP directory The PERMIS PMI Implementation –This grants or denies Initiators access to resources, based on the Privilege Policy and the ACs of the Initiator. The ADF is accessed via the PERMIS API

9 4 June 2002© 2001-2 TrueTrust Ltd9 Application Specific Components The Access Enforcement Function –Its task is to ensure the Initiator is authenticated by the PKI, then to call the ADF, and give access to the target if allowed The PKI –Any standard conforming PKI can be used Java PKCS#11-like Interface to the PERMIS PMI The Privilege Policy in XML –This must be written according to the schema/DTD LDAP Directory –To store the Policy and Initiator ACs

11 4 June 2002© 2001-2 TrueTrust Ltd11 PERMIS X.509 PMI RBAC Policy Role Based Access Control Policy written in XML Initiators are given Role Assignment ACs A role is loosely defined as any Attribute Type and Attribute Value Role values can form a hierarchy, where superiors inherit the privileges of their subordinates e.g. CTO>PM>TL>TM ACs can be issued by any trusted AA Access is based on the Roles

12 4 June 2002© 2001-2 TrueTrust Ltd12 An Example Set of Roles Chartered Architect ISO 9000 Chief Architect SOA= Royal College of Architects SOA= BSI Architect Junior Architect SOA= Company Managing Director

19 4 June 2002© 2001-2 TrueTrust Ltd19 An Example Role Assignment Policy

20 4 June 2002© 2001-2 TrueTrust Ltd20 Target Access Policy Components Target Policy –Specifies the target domains covered by this policy, using LDAP subtrees Action Policy –Specifies the actions (operations) supported by the targets, along with their allowed operands Target Access Policy

21 4 June 2002© 2001-2 TrueTrust Ltd21 Target Access Conditions A condition comprises: –a comparison operator –the LHS operand(variable), described by its source, name and type, and variable source is the action or the environment Eg. Source Read action, Name filename, Type string Eg. Source environment, Name time of day, Type time –a series of one or more variables or constant values against which the LHS operand is to be compared Conditions may be combined using AND, OR, NOT

23 4 June 2002© 2001-2 TrueTrust Ltd23 An Example Target Access Policy

24 4 June 2002© 2001-2 TrueTrust Ltd24 An Example Condition Statement

25 4 June 2002© 2001-2 TrueTrust Ltd25 Creating Your Own Policy If an XML expert, simply use your favourite text editor Or use an XML tool such as Xeena from IBM Alphaworks

26 4 June 2002© 2001-2 TrueTrust Ltd26 The Privilege Allocator A tool for creating Attribute Certificates

27 4 June 2002© 2001-2 TrueTrust Ltd27 The PERMIS API Three Simple Methods: getCreds, decision, finalize and a Constructor Written in Java and based on the OpenGroups AZN API Constructing the API object –Pass the name of the administrator, the OID of the policy and the URLs of the LDAP repositories –During construction, the API reads in the Policy AC and verifies its signature and OID

28 4 June 2002© 2001-2 TrueTrust Ltd28 The PERMIS API (cont) GetCreds –Pass the authenticated name (LDAP DN) of the subject –Pull mode, GetCreds retrieves the subjects ACs –Push mode, ACs are passed to GetCreds –ACs are validated and roles extracted Decision –Pass the target name, the action, and the parameters of the subjects request –Decision checks the request against the policy and returns Granted or Denied Finalize –Terminates the use of this policy

29 4 June 2002© 2001-2 TrueTrust Ltd29 Privilege Allocator LDAP directory Attribute Certificates + ACRLs SOA Remote Application User Privilege Policy INTERNET INTRANET PKI Certifies PK Certs+ PKCRLs Authorises Putting it altogether - Allocating Privileges LDAP directory

30 4 June 2002© 2001-2 TrueTrust Ltd30 Privilege Creation Steps SOA defines Privilege Policy using Privilege Allocator Privilege Policy is stored in LDAP directory as self signed Attribute Certificate SOA allocates privileges to user, in accordance with the Privilege Policy SOA can revoke user privileges SOA can update Privilege Policy

31 4 June 2002© 2001-2 TrueTrust Ltd31 E- Commerce Application Server LDAP directory Privilege Policy ACs + ACRLs + PK CRLs Remote Application User Digitally Signed Request (SSL or S/MIME) Privilege Verifier INTERNET INTRANET Granting User Access Application Gateway Accesses using privileges granted the user LDAP directory
