Overview

IWA allows for SSO using the Operating System users credentials.

Prerequisites

LDAP users have been successfully populated from AD; if not please refer to the AD Configuration Guide.

Quick reference

  1. setspn -U -S HTTP/%noodle.domain.tld@DOMAIN.TLD %service_account
  2. Add Noodle to "Microsoft Internet Explorer > Tools > Internet Options > Security > Local intranet > Sites > Advanced"
  3. Use https://yourNoodle.tld/SPNEGO.po

Supported configurations

Browsers

Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome
Note: Microsoft Edge does not support this feature.

Protocols

Kerberos in SPNEGO in GSS-API (RFC 2478)
Note: NTLM, and NegoExts are not supported.

Endpoints

AD, Azure, and F5
Note: Others may work but have not been tested

Server configuration

Define the appropriate SPN for the account which Noodle is using to bind to LDAP.

  • Within the AD Users and Groups snap-in Navigate to Noodle’s service (admin) account and set the follow attribute:
    1. servicePrincipalName = HTTP/%noodle_url
    2. Apply the change
  • This may also be set via command line:
    1. setspn -U -S HTTP/%noodle.domain.tld@DOMAIN.TLD %service_account
  • For Windows server 2008R2 or older command line instead use
    1. setspn -A HTTP/%noodle.domain.tld %service_account

Note:

  • Logins from the AD Kerberos Server itself are not supported because Windows will attempt NTLM.
  • For local installs, non-primary domains can be used with IWA by placing “IgnoreIWADomain = true” into intranet.conf 

Browser configuration

The next step in enabling IWA requires browser configurations to attempt authentication with the Noodle intranet website.

Once the configuration is in place users will need to access Noodle via the SPNEGO.po URL (ie. https://yourNoodle.tld/SPNEGO.po).

The following section of this guide explains this process.

Microsoft Internet Explorer & Google Chrome

Both of these browsers are configured with Microsoft Internet Explorer in "Tools > Internet Options > Security > Local intranet". 

Note:  If a non-default level is in use be sure “Automatic logon only in Intranet zone” is selected in "the Custom Level".

Next we will need to add the URL of your Noodle instance in "Sites > Advanced".

Mozilla Firefox

Enter “about:config” in the address bar, press “Enter”, and click “I Accept the Risk” when prompted.

Next, search for “auth.trusted”, enter your Noodle URL in the attribute entitled “network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris” and select OK.

At this point IWA should be fully operational for your Noodle Intranet site!

Overview

SAML allows for SSO using the Web Browser users credentials.

Noodle Prerequisites

If AD is being used, LDAP users should have already been populated within Noodle.

Quick reference

  1. Save your IdP URL and fingerprint in your SP (Noodle)
  2. Use https://yourNoodle.tld/SAML.po in your IdP settings and Web Browser.

Supported IdPs

Onelogin, Okta, and Azure
Note: Contact us for assistance integrating Other IdPs.

Noodle Configuration

In Noodle navigate to “System Tools > Settings > Single Sign-On”

Both URL & fingerprint will be supplied by your IdP vendor. Your IdP may provide an XML file which contains the URL and certificate, to convert the certificate into a SHA-1 fingerprint there are some online SAML tools:

  1. Format Certificate
  2. Calculate Fingerprint

IdP Configuration

Your IdP will require a location to direct SAML responses, use https://yourNoodle.tld/SAML.po.  Noodle will be compatible with the default settings of most IdPs.

onelogin

  1. Navigate to "Administration > Applications > Add App"
  2. Search for "SAML Test Connector (IdP)"
  3. setting tabs

GDPR checklist;

Local

  • We hold payment information optionally provided by clients, and share it with no one. we use it to charge for our software service.
  • We hold at least one pice of contact information to update payment information.
  • Data is stored on our accounting computer
  • This is our publicly accessible policy
  • We have a DPO
  • Our staff and management is aware of this document
  • We use modern and up to date security.
  • We appoint clients as there own representatives in the EU
  • If ever we become aware of a personal data breach our customers and local authorities will be made aware.
  • customers can verify and update information by simply asking.
  • We review this policy annually or as required.
  • We understand when DPIA is required

Hosted

  • Data is stored-in / removed-from a location of the clients request.

  1. Create a drive key and secret
  2. Put them in "System Tools > Settings > General > Google Drive OAuth"
    1. Note that OAuth requires your Noodle server to be accessed via a public domain
  3. Enable in the "Administration > Properties" of the folder you want to connect.
  4. View the folder and follow the prompts.

Vialect Bug Bounty;

  1. Contact us and let us know you are interested
  2. We will send you an installer or an IP address
  3. Qualification
    • Confine aggressive/damaging testing to the installer/IP we provide
    • Keep your findings confidential until we fix the bug (same day we hope)
    • We pay whenever we make a change as a result of your bug report.
  4. Send us a report with enough information for us to reproduce the bug
  5. We will reward you (You will not be prosecuted)
    • Public credit and thanks
    • Payment (varies by severity of the bug from $1 to $1000 per bug)

postgresql.conf ships with quite modest defaults so be sure to august it for anything more than light use. We recommend for ~4k users;

  • Available Memory = System Memory - OS (1GB for Windows) - Java (100 to 512)
  • effective_cache_size = Available Memory / 2
  • shared_buffers  = effective_cache_size / 4
  • max_locks_per_transaction = 512
  • max_connections =  60
  • checkpoint_segments 30
  • log_min_duration_statement = 10000
  • log_line_prefix =  ''%m: ''

There is a convenient config creator here.
