Subject [jira] [Commented] (WSS-508) When using "add inclusive prefixes" and EXC C14N - signature cannot be validated
Date Thu, 21 Aug 2014 17:25:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/WSS-508?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14105631#comment-14105631

Gene B. commented on WSS-508:
-----------------------------

Thanks for the comment, Andreas. I do not think this issue you're describing is what's affecting
us. The IBM issue talks about prefix names should appear the same as required by the C14N.
I think they are confusing prefix names with whitespaces - those are required to be preserved
for signature to validate. Prefix names should not matter. In my case - the whitespaces are
in fact preserved, and the digest checksums are validated Ok. It's something to do with the
Inclusive namespaces list - hopefully Colm could shed some light on it.

>             Project: WSS4J
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: WSS4J Core
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.0, 2.0.1
>         Environment: WAS 7.x, IBM JDK 1.6, WebSphere JAX-WS stack, MS Windows.
>            Reporter: Gene B.

>         Attachments: log 01 - signature verification failed with InclusiveNamespaces
PrefixList.txt, log 02 - signature verification ok - signed by SOAP UI.txt, request1-printedby-provider-signedby-soapui.xml,
request1-printedby-provider-signedby-wss4j.xml

> Security implemented using WSS4J securement/validation action approach. We are trying
to sign the body.
> The provider is a JAX-WS service running on WebSphere JAX-WS stack. Custom handler uses
WSS4j to validate security. 
> The consumer is a WebSphere JAX-WS dispatch client – also attaching custom security
handler.
> Signature can be validated on the provider side when EXC C14N canonicalization is specified
with BST compliance flag relaxed. That is because when we chose to add “InclusiveNamespaces”
“PrefixList” on the consumer side, verification fails. When the same test is done with
the SOAP UI – signature verifies Ok – so I am blaming the consumer – the signing process
- not verification process.
> I am attaching a log file which shows verification failure when the InclusiveNamespaces
option is used. If not for this option – this verification would’ve been a success.
