ndg-saml 0.7.0

SAML 2.0 implementation for the NERC DataGrid based on the Java OpenSAML library

Package Documentation

SAML 2.0 implementation for use with the Earth System Grid Federation Attribute
and Authorisation Query interfaces. The implementation is based on the Java
OpenSAML libraries. An implementation is provided with ElementTree but it can
easily be extended to use other Python XML parsers.


* add command line script for making attribute and authorisation decision
query client calls.

* added support for SAML 2.0 profile of XACML v2.0
specifically the SAML request extensions: ``XACMLAuthzDecisionQuery`` and
``XACMLAuthzDecisionStatement``. This an alternative to the SAML defined
``AuthzDecisionQuery``. It enables a richer functionality for expressing
queries and authorisation decisions taking advantage of the full
capabilities of a XACML PDP.
* fixed bug in SAML SOAP binding code: ``RequestBaseSOAPBinding`` and derived
classes to act as a query factory, instead of container, for thread

Thanks to Richard Wilkinson for these contributions.

* allow passing a client certificate chain in client HTTPS requests

* fix for ``ndg.saml.saml2.binding.soap.server.wsgi.queryinterface.SOAPQueryInterfaceMiddleware``:
bug in issuerFormat property setter - setting ``issuerName`` value.

* fix for ``ndg.soap.utils.etree.prettyPrint`` for undeclared Nss.

* fix for applying clock skew property in ``queryinterface`` WSGI middleware,
and various minor fixes for ``classfactory`` module and ``m2crytpo`` utilities.

* fix for date time parsing where no seconds fraction is present, fixed
error message for ``InResponseTo`` ID check for Subject Query.

* adds WSGI middleware and clients for SAML SOAP binding and assertion
query/request profile.

It is not a complete implementation of SAML 2.0. Only those components required
for the NERC DataGrid have been provided (Attribute and AuthZ Decision Query/
Response). Where possible, stubs have been provided for other classes.
