Introduction

Use this guide to enable Service Provider (SP)-initiated 2-Factor Authentication and Single Sign-on (SSO) access via SAML to Blue Jeans Video Conferencing Service.

For SecureAuth IdP-initiated integration, refer to Blue Jeans (IdP-initiated) Integration Guide.

Prerequisites

1. Have an Enterprise Tier Blue Jeans account

2. Ensure that SAML SSO is enabled through an administrator account

3. Create a New Realm in the SecureAuth IdP Web Admin for the Blue Jeans integration

4. Configure the following tabs in the Web Admin before configuring the Post Authentication tab:

  • Overview – the description of the realm and SMTP connections must be defined
  • Data – an enterprise directory must be integrated with SecureAuth IdP
  • Workflow – the way in which users will access this application must be defined
  • Registration Methods – the 2-Factor Authentication methods that will be used to access this page (if any) must be defined
SecureAuth IdP Configuration Steps
Data

 

1. In the Profile Fields section, map the end-user's email address attribute (e.g. mail) to a SecureAuth IdP Profile Property (e.g. Email 1)

Click Save once the configurations have been completed and before leaving the Data page to avoid losing changes

 

2. In the SAML 2.0 Service Provider section, set the SP Start URL to http://samlsp.bluejeans.com 

Click Save once the configurations have been completed and before leaving the Workflow page to avoid losing changes

Post Authentication

 

3. In the Post Authentication section, select SAML 2.0 (SP Initiated) Assertion Page from the Authenticated User Redirect dropdown

4. An unalterable URL will be auto-populated in the Redirect To field, which will append to the domain name and realm number in the address bar (Authorized/SAML20SPInit.aspx)

User ID Mapping

 

5. Select Authenticated User ID from the User ID Mapping dropdown (default)

6. Select urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:nameid-format:persistent from the Name ID Format dropdown

7. Select False from the Encode to Base64 dropdown

SAML Assertion / WS Federation

 

8. Set the SAML Recipient to https://bluejeans.com/sso/SAML2/

9. Set the SAML Audience to http://samlsp.bluejeans.com

10. Select True from the Sign SAML Assertion dropdown

No configuration is required for the WSFed/SAML Reply To Target URL, SAML Consumer URL, or WSFed/SAML Issuer fields

11. Leave the Signing Cert Serial Number as the default value, unless there is a third-party certificate being used for the SAML assertion

If using a third-party certificate, click Select Certificate and choose the appropriate certificate

12. Download the Assertion Signing Certificate, which is used in the Blue Jeans Configuration Steps

SAML Attributes / WS Federation

 

13. Set the Name of Attribute 1 to Email

14. Select Email 1 (or an alternate SecureAuth IdP Profile Property to which the end-user's email address is mapped) from the Value dropdown

15. Set the Name of Attribute 2 to userid

16. Select Authenticated User ID from the Value dropdown

Click Save once the configurations have been completed and before leaving the Post Authentication page to avoid losing changes

Forms Auth / SSO Token

 

17. Click View and Configure FormsAuth keys / SSO token to configure the token/cookie settings and to configure this realm for SSO

These are optional configurations

 To configure this realm's token/cookie settings, follow these steps:
Forms Authentication


1. If SSL is required to view the token, select True from the Require SSL dropdown

2. Choose whether SecureAuth IdP will deliver the token in a cookie to the user's browser or device:

  • UseCookies enables SecureAuth IdP to always deliver a cookie
  • UseUri disables SecureAuth IdP to deliver a cookie, and instead deliver the token in a query string
  • AutoDetect enables SecureAuth IdP to deliver a cookie if the user's settings allow it
  • UseDeviceProfile enables SecureAuth IdP to deliver a cookie if the browser's settings allow it, no matter the user's settings

3. Set the Sliding Expiration to True if the cookie remains valid as long as the user is interacting with the page

4. Set the Timeout length to determine for how many minutes a cookie is valid

No configuration is required for the Name, Login URL, or Domain fields

Machine Key

5. No changes are required in the Validation field, unless the default value does not match the company's requirement

If a different value is required, select it from the dropdown

6. No changes are required in the Decryption field, unless the default value does not match the company's requirement

If a different value is required, select it from the dropdown

No configuration is required for the Validation Key or Decryption Key fields

Authentication Cookies

 

7. Enable the cookie to be Persistent by selecting True - Expires after Timeout from the dropdown

Selecting False - Session Cookie enables the cookie to be valid as long as the session is open, and will expire once the browser is closed or the session expires

No configuration is required for the Pre-Auth Cookie, Post-Auth Cookie, or the Clean Up Pre-Auth Cookie fields

Click Save once the configurations have been completed and before leaving the Forms Auth / SSO Token page to avoid losing changes

To configure this realm for SSO, refer to SecureAuth IdP Single Sign-on Configuration

To configure this realm for Windows Desktop SSO, refer to Windows Desktop SSO Configuration Guide

2. Select Admin from the top menu, then Group Settings, and open the Security tab

6. Set the Login URL to the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) of the SecureAuth IdP appliance, followed by the Blue Jeans-integrated realm, e.g. https://secureauth.company.com/secureauth2/

7. Set the Password Change URL to the SecureAuth IdP Password Reset Realm to enable easy password reset (optional)

8. Set the Logout URL to any URL to where end-users are redirected upon logging out (optional)

9. Set the User Id field to userid
