Subject [jira] [Commented] (WSS-508) When using "add inclusive prefixes" and EXC C14N - signature cannot be validated
Date Thu, 21 Aug 2014 17:47:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/WSS-508?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14105670#comment-14105670

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

This is the "redo" for the comment that was deleted... That's an interesting note. In general
people talk about prefixes as a "throw away" thing - the only thing that matters is the namespace
they reference. On the other hand, if an attribute value has a prefix name in it, many things
will break if your stack re-names prefixes during serialization. I do not think this is what
is happening in my case - but it is another thing to look out for. Thanks for the tip, Andreas.

>             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.
>            Assignee: Colm O hEigeartaigh
>         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.
