SecureAuth IdP Configuration Steps
Data

This step is for Active Directory data stores only; if using different directory, the values will need to be mapped appropriately in the data store

1. In the Profile Fields section, map the userPrincipalName (UPN) to the SecureAuth IdP Property, e.g. Aux ID 1

2. Map the distinguishedName (DN) to the SecureAuth IdP Property, e.g Aux ID 12

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

Post Authentication

 

3. Select iOS Exchange Provision from the Authenticated User Redirect dropdown in the Post Authentication tab in the Web Admin

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/iOSExchange.aspx)

User ID Mapping

 

5. Select Authenticated User ID from the User ID Mapping dropdown

iPhone / Android

 

6. Click Choose File to upload the 3.0 Template, and select the iOS Exchange Profile file from the iOS Configuration Steps

iOS Profile Provision for Microsoft Exchange

 

7. Select Aux ID 1 (or the Property to which the userPrincipalName is mapped) from the UPN Mapping dropdown

8. Select Aux ID 2 (or the Property to which the distinguishedName is mapped) from the DN Mapping dropdown

9. Provide any DC Exclusions to simplify the user ID, e.g. DC=com,DC=local, making the user ID domain/username

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

Forms Auth / SSO Token

 

10. Click View and Configure FormsAuth keys/SSO token to configure the token / cookie properties of this realm

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 CookiePost-Auth Cookie, or the Clean Up Pre-Auth Cookie fields

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