Step 2: Choose Your User Directory
2.1: Setup AD as User Directory
- Log in to miniOrange dashboard from the Admin Console.
- From the Side Menu, Click on User Stores >> Add User Store
- STORE LDAP CONFIGURATION IN MINIORANGE: Choose this option if you want to keep your configuration in miniOrange. If active directory is behind a firewall, you will need to open the firewall to allow incoming requests to your AD.
- STORE LDAP CONFIGURATION ON PREMISE: Choose this option if you want to keep your configuration in your premise and only allow access to AD inside premises. You will have to download and install miniOrange gateway in your premise.
- Enter LDAP Display Name and LDAP Identifier of your choice. Select Directory Type as Active Directory.
- Enter the LDAP Server URL or IP Address against LDAP Server URL field.
- Go to AD FS-> Domain-> respective Users -> Properties-> Attribute Editor. Now copy the value of distinguishedName and paste it against Bind Account DN.
- Enter the valid password for the user from above step.
- Search Base is the location in the directory where the search for a user begins.
- If you want to add extra conditions on user search you can add it in Search Filter. Select a suitable Search Filter from the Drop-Down. To use custom Search Filter select "Custom Search Filter" option and provide the search filter in the input field that shows up.
- You can also configure following options while setting up AD.
Here's the list of the attributes and what it does when we enable it. You can enable/disable accordingly.
||All user authentications will be done with LDAP credentials if you Activate it
|Sync users in miniOrange
||Users will be created in miniOrange after authentication with LDAP
||If LDAP credentials fail then user will be authenticated through miniOrange
|Allow users to change password
||This allows your users to change their password. It updates the new credentials in your LDAP server
|Enable administrator login
||On enabling this, your miniOrange Administrator login authenticates using your LDAP server
|Show IdP to users
||If you enable this option, this IdP will be visible to users
|Send Configured Attributes
||If you enable this option, then only the attributes configured below will be sent in attributes at the time of login
- Click on Save. After this, it will show you the list of User stores. Click on Test Configuration to check whether you have enter valid details. For that, it will ask for username and password.
- On Successful connection with LDAP Server, a success message is shown.
- Click on Test Attribute Mapping.
- Enter a valid Username. Then, click on Test. Mapped Attributes corresponding to the user are fetched.
- After successful Attribute Mapping Configuration, go back to the ldap configuration and enable Activate LDAP in order to authenticate users from AD/LDAP.
2.2: Setup miniOrange as a User Store
- Log in to miniOrange dashboard from the Admin Console.
- There are 3 ways to setup miniOrange as an Identity Source
Step 3: Setup SSO in SAP Netweaver Admin Account.
- Login to SAP NetWeaver Administration (NWA) and navigate to Configuration > Authentication and Single Sign-On > SAML 2.0
- To configure MiniOrange as IDP, navigate to Trusted Providers to configure your IdP.
- Click on the Add button and upload the metadata file downloaded from the miniOrange metadata section. Else select to configure the links manually. Provide an alias for the IdP.
- In case the metadata file is uploaded, the IdP certificate would be uploaded automatically. If that's not the case, manually import the certificate and select the same in Signing Certificate.
- Select the appropriate SSO endpoint from IdP and save the settings.
- Select the IdP configured and click on Edit and go to the Identity Federation tab. Here you will need to identify based on what parameter you will authenticate the user.
- Now Save the settings and activate by clicking on the Enable button.
- Once this is done, the portal can accept SAML 2.0 assertions to authenticate users.
- Now, users can successfully login into SAP Netweaver using miniorange as IdP.
Step 4: Login to your SAP NetWeaver account with miniOrange IdP by either of the two steps:
Using SP Initiated Login
- Go to your SAP NetWeaver URL, enter your credentials then click on Login. Now you will be redirected to miniOrange IdP Sign On Page.
- Enter your miniOrange login credential and click on Login. You will be automatically logged in to your SAP NetWeaver account.
Using IDP Initiated Login
- Login to miniOrange IdP using admin credentials and select the User Dashboard from the right side menu.
- Click on SAP NetWeaver application which you added, to verify your sso configuration.
Step 5: Adaptive Authentication with SAP NetWeaver
5.1: Restricting access to SAP NetWeaver with IP Blocking
5.2: Adaptive Authentication with Limiting number of devices.
Using Adaptive Authentication you can also restrict the number of devices the end user can access the Services on. You can allow end users to access services on a fixed no. of devices. The end users wii be able to access services provided by us on this fixed no. of devices.
You can cofigure Adaptive Authentication with Device Restriction in follwing way
- Login to Self Service Console >> Adaptive Authentication.
- Add a Policy Name for your Adaptive Authentication Policy.
- Select your Action for Behavior Change and Challenge Type for user.
- Scroll down to Device Configuration section and enable Allow User to Register Device option to allow users to register their devices.
- Enter the Number of Devices which are allowed to register in field next to Number of Device Registrations Allowed
- Choose Action if number of devices exceeded (This will override your setting for Action for Behaviour Change.)
Enable option Send email alerts to Users if number of Device registrations exceeded allowed count if you want to alert the user about no of devices exceeding the limit. Save the configuration.
- Challenge: The user needs to verify himself using any of the three methods mentioned in table in step 5.1
- Deny : Deny users access to the system
Add Adaptive Authentication policy to SAP NetWeaver
Login to Self Service Console >> Policies.
Click on Edit option for predefined SAML app policy.
Enable Adaptive Authentication on Policy page and select Device-Id as the Method.
From Select Login Policy dropdown select the policy we created in last step and click on save.
How to add a trusted Device
- When End-user log in to the self service console after the policy for device restriction is on, he is provided the option to add the current device as a trusted device.
More Secure authentication with Two-Factor Authentication
The most practical way to strengthen authentication is to require a second factor after the username/password stage. Since a password is something that a user knows, ensuring that the user also has something or using biometrics thwarts attackers that steal or gain access to passwords.
Traditional two-factor authentication solutions use hardware tokens (or "fobs") that users carry on their keychains. These tokens generate one-time passwords for the second stage of the login process. However, hardware tokens can cost up to $40 each. It takes time and effort to distribute them, tracks who has which one, and replace them when they break. They're easy to lose, hard to use, and users consistently report high levels of frustration with token-based systems.
Your choice of the second factor
miniOrange authentication service has 15+ authentication methods.
You can choose from any of the above authentication methods to augment your password based authentication. miniOrange authentication service works with all phone types, from landlines to smart-phone platforms. In the simplest case, users just answer a phone call and press a button to authenticate. miniOrange authentication service works internationally and has customers authenticating from many countries around the world.
