WebKDC::WebRequest

(Encapsulates a request to a WebAuth WebKDC)

SYNOPSIS

    use WebKDC::WebRequest;

    my $req = WebKDC::WebRequest->new;
    $req->user ($user);
    $req->pass ($password);
    $req->request_token ($RT);
    $req->service_token ($ST);

DESCRIPTION

A WebKDC::WebRequest object encapsulates a request to a WebAuth WebKDC, representing a login attempt for a particular WebAuth Application Server. It is used by the WebLogin server as the argument to make_request_token_request. The object has very little inherent functionality. It's mostly a carrier for data.

CLASS METHODS

new ()

Create a new, empty WebKDC::WebRequest object. At least some parameters must be set using accessor functions as described below to do anything useful with the object.

INSTANCE METHODS

authz_subject ([USER])

Retrieve or set the requested authorization identity. This is an identity that the user wishes to assert for authorization purposes to the remote site. It must be vetted by the WebKDC and will be included in the id or proxy token if asserting that authorization identity is permitted.

device_id ([ID])

Retrieve or set the ID of the device used for second factor authentication. This attribute is required if neither otp() nor pass() are set. It is used primarily to indicate a device with which the user is performing an out-of-band second factor authentication that doesn't involve a password or an OTP code.

local_ip_addr ([ADDR])
local_ip_port ([PORT])
remote_ip_addr ([ADDR])
remote_ip_port ([PORT])

Retrieve or set information about the network connection that is attempting authentication. If one of these values is set, all of them should be set. The remote_* parameters are the IP address of the remote client that is attempting to authenticate, and the local_* parameters are the local interface and port to which that client connected.

otp ([CODE])

Retrieve or set the one-time password sent by the user. This, pass(), or device_id() should be set, but otp() and pass() cannot both be set.

otp_type ([CODE])

Retrieve or set the one-time password type sent by the user. Despite the name, this can also be used with device_id() to specify the factor type used for out-of-band device authentication, even if it doesn't involve OTP. This should be a WebAuth factor code corresponding to the type of one-time password that this login token represents. It may be left unset if the caller doesn't know.

login_state ([STATE])

Get or set the login state of the request. This field can contain any data the implementer chooses to place and will be passed, by the WebKDC, to the user information service as part of an OTP validation. It is usually used in conjunction with multifactor authentication to provide some additional data about the type of multifactor being used. It may be left unset if unneeded.

pass ([PASSWORD])

Retrieve or set the password sent by the user. Either this or otp should be set, but not both.

proxy_cookie (TYPE[, COOKIE, FACTOR])

Retrieve or set a proxy cookie of a particular type. If COOKIE and FACTOR are given, sets a cookie of the given TYPE with value COOKIE and session factor FACTOR. Returns the cookie value of the given TYPE or undef if no such cookie is available.

proxy_cookies ([COOKIES])

Retrieve or set a hash of all cookies. If the COOKIES parameter is provided, it must be a hash of cookie types to anonymous hashes, with each value hash having two keys: cookie, whose value is the cookie value, and session_factor, whose value is the session factors for that cookie. Returns a hash of cookie types to values without the factor information.

proxy_cookies_rich ([COOKIES])

Retrieve or set a hash of all cookies including session factors. If the COOKIES parameter is provided, it must be a hash of cookie types to anonymous hashes, with each value hash having two keys: cookie, whose value is the cookie value, and session_factor, whose value is the session factors for that cookie. Returns a hash in the same structure as the COOKIES argument.

remote_user ([USER])

Retrieve or set the remote username, as determined by some external authentication system such as Apache authentication. This is not currently used.

request_token ([TOKEN])

Retrieve or set the request token from the WebAuth application server that prompted this authentication request. This must be set to create a valid WebKDC::WebRequest.

service_token ([TOKEN])

Retrieve or set the service token provided by the WebAuth application server, which contains the key used to decrypt the request token. This must be set to create a valid WebKDC::WebRequest.

factor_token ([TOKEN])

Retrieve or set the factor token, which contains a token given to the user's device in an earlier login to denote a successful multifactor login with that device.

user ([USER])

Retrieve or set the username of the authenticating user. This must be set to create a valid WebKDC::WebRequest.
