Changelog

v0.5.2

Fixed

  • Route sessions match the upstream identity provider's expiry. GH-416

v0.5.1

Fixed

  • Fixes forward-auth configurations for nginx and traefik.

v0.5.0

New

  • Session state is now route-scoped. Each managed route uses a transparent, signed JSON Web Token (JWT) to assert identity.
  • Managed routes no longer need to be under the same subdomain! Access can be delegated to any route, on any domain.
  • Programmatic access now also uses JWT tokens. Access tokens are now generated via a standard oauth2 token flow, and credentials can be refreshed for as long as is permitted by the underlying identity provider.
  • User dashboard now pulls in additional user context fields (where supported) like the profile picture, first and last name, and so on.

Security

  • Some identity providers (Okta, Onelogin, and Azure) previously used mutable signifiers to set and assert group membership. Group membership for all providers now use globally unique and immutable identifiers when available.

Changed

  • Azure AD identity provider now uses globally unique and immutable ID for group membership.
  • Okta no longer uses tokens to retrieve group membership. Group membership is now fetched using Okta's HTTP API. Group membership is now determined by the globally unique and immutable ID field.
  • Okta now requires an additional set of credentials to be used to query for group membership set as a service account.
  • URLs are no longer validated to be on the same domain-tree as the authenticate service. Managed routes can live on any domain.
  • OneLogin no longer uses tokens to retrieve group membership. Group membership is now fetched using OneLogin's HTTP API. Group membership is now determined by the globally unique and immutable ID field.

Removed

  • Force refresh has been removed from the dashboard.
  • Previous programmatic authentication endpoints (/api/v1/token) has been removed and is no longer supported.

Fixed

  • Fixed an issue where cookie sessions would not clear on error.GH-376

Security

  • The user's original intended location before completing the authentication process is now encrypted and kept confidential from the identity provider. GH-316
  • Under certain circumstances, where debug logging was enabled, pomerium's shared secret could be leaked to http access logs as a query param. GH-338

Fixed

  • Fixed an issue where CSRF would fail if multiple tabs were open. GH-306

Changed

  • The healthcheck endpoints (/ping) now returns the http status 405 StatusMethodNotAllowed for non-GET requests.
  • Authenticate service no longer uses gRPC.
  • The global request logger now captures the full array of proxies from X-Forwarded-For, in addition to just the client IP.
  • Options code refactored to eliminate global Viper state. GH-332
  • Pomerium will no longer default to looking for certificates in the root directory. GH-328

DOCUMENTATION

v0.0.3

FEATURES

  • Authorization : The authorization module adds support for per-route access policy. In this release we support the most common forms of identity based access policy: allowed_users, allowed_groups, and allowed_domains. In future versions, the authorization module will also support context and device based authorization policy and decisions. See website documentation for more details.

  • Group Support : The authenticate service now retrieves a user's group membership information during authentication and refresh. This change may require additional identity provider configuration; all of which are described in the updated docs. A brief summary of the requirements for each IdP are as follows:

    • Google requires the Admin SDK to enabled, a service account with properly delegated access, and IDP_SERVICE_ACCOUNT to be set to the base64 encoded value of the service account's key file.
    • Okta requires a groups claim to be added to both the id_token and access_token. No additional API calls are made.
    • Microsoft Azure Active Directory requires the application be given an additional API permission, Directory.Read.All.
    • Onelogin requires the groups was supplied during authentication and that groups parameter has been mapped. Group membership is validated on refresh with the user-info api endpoint.
  • WebSocket Support : With Go 1.12 pomerium automatically proxies WebSocket requests.

CHANGED

  • Added LOG_LEVEL config setting that allows for setting the desired minimum log level for an event to be logged. GH-74
  • Changed POMERIUM_DEBUG config setting to just do console-pretty printing. No longer sets log level. GH-74
  • Updated generate_wildcard_cert.sh to generate a elliptic curve 256 cert by default.
  • Updated env.example to include a POLICY setting example.
  • Added IDP_SERVICE_ACCOUNT to env.example .
  • Removed ALLOWED_DOMAINS settings which has been replaced by POLICY. Authorization is now handled by the authorization service and is defined in the policy configuration files.
  • Removed ROUTES settings which has been replaced by POLICY.
  • Add refresh endpoint ${url}/.pomerium/refresh which forces a token refresh and responds with the json result.
  • Group membership added to proxy headers (x-pomerium-authenticated-user-groups) and (x-pomerium-jwt-assertion).
  • Default Cookie lifetime (COOKIE_EXPIRE) changed from 7 days to 14 hours ~ roughly one business day.
  • Moved identity (authenticate/providers) into its own internal identity package as third party identity providers are going to authorization details (group membership, user role, etc) in addition to just authentication attributes.
  • Removed circuit breaker package. Calls that were previously wrapped with a circuit breaker fall under gRPC timeouts; which are gated by relatively short timeouts.
  • Session expiration times are truncated at the second.
  • Removed gitlab provider. We can't support groups until this gitlab bug is fixed.
  • Request context is now maintained throughout request-flow via the context package enabling timeouts, request tracing, and cancellation.

FIXED

  • http.Server and httputil.NewSingleHostReverseProxy now uses pomerium's logging package instead of the standard library's built in one. GH-58
