Subject [jira] [Created] (WSS-509) SecurityToken::isExpired: add clock skew option
Date Thu, 28 Aug 2014 09:33:58 GMT
Willem Salembier created WSS-509:

             Summary: SecurityToken::isExpired: add clock skew option
                 Key: WSS-509
             Project: WSS4J
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: WSS4J Core
    Affects Versions: 1.6.16
            Reporter: Willem Salembier
            Assignee: Colm O hEigeartaigh
             Fix For: 1.6.17

We notice race conditions with some of our clients when CXF verifies if SecurityTokens cached
locally are still valid or expired. One reason could be clock desynchronization, another reason
is that while the token was still valid at the moment of request construction, it isn't when
the SOAP message arrives on the server (1s difference suffices).

Is it possible to add a clock skew option to
cfr whats been done in
with the futureTTL property. In SamlAssertionValidator the futureTTl is only used in the validFrom
comparison, but in our case it should be considered also in the validTill comparison.

A possible workaround is to configure our STS to initialize Lifetime>Expires in the RSTR
response to SAMLAssertion > Conditions > NotOnOrAfter - clock skew.
