Release notes

nevisFIDO 7.2402.0.3 - 21.02.2024

Breaking changes

  • CHANGED: The minimum required nevisIDM Admin Service SOAP interface version was increased to v1_46. If a nevisFIDO instance is configured to support FIDO UAF then the credential-repository section of its nevisfido.yml has to be updated. The admin-service-version has to be set to v1_46 and in case the administration-url config parameter value defined a specific version in the URL like /nevisidm/services/v1_42/AdminService then it has to be also updated accordingly to /nevisidm/services/v1_46/AdminService. (NEVISFIDO-2000)

nevisFIDO 7.2311.0.8 - 15.11.2023

Breaking changes

  • REMOVED: We removed the jcan-log and jcan-optrace third-party dependencies. OpTrace logging is replaced by OpenTelemetry. (NEVISFIDO-1583)
  • CHANGED: We switched the logging implementation to Log4j2 from Logback. The logging configuration now must be named /var/opt/nevisfido/<instance>/conf/logging.yml (instead of logback.xml) and the content should be in the log4j2 yaml format.
  • CHANGED: New Jetty version used in nevisFIDO performs more strict validation for TLS connections. The SNI will be checked for matching the hostname in the configured certificate. (NEVISFIDO-1921)

  • NEW: nevisFIDO now records the success or failure of a FIDO UAF Authentication operation as login information for the used credential in nevisIDM. (NEVISFIDO-1930)
  • CHANGED: We now set the java.io.tmpdir system property by default to /var/opt/nevisfido/<instance>/tmp. When nevisfido is started, Jetty requires it at runtime. Originally the system /tmp folder was used for this purpose, however at some cases it can happen that a system cleanup job deletes the Jetty prefixed directories which causes nevisfido to return errors. (NEVISAUTH-4461)
  • NEW: a new configuration property display-name-source has been added to the FIDO2 configuration block, so integrators can better influence what property of the user is displayed during ceremonies. (NEVISFIDO-1913)
  • NEW: Added RHEL 9 support. (NEVISAUTH-4421)
  • NEW: First release of a test client library to support load testing of nevisFIDO UAF ceremonies with Gatling. The related nevisFIDO-test-client-core and nevisFIDO-test-client-gatling Java artifacts are released as ZIP archives. (NEVISFIDO-1902)

nevisFIDO 2.4.1.1 - 28.08.2023

Changes and new features

  • FIXED: We removed an SQL statement from the nevisFIDO code which was incompatible with the older MariaDB version 10.3. Having the script there was a mistake, as the automatic DB schema creation supports setting up the database from scratch. In non-Kubernetes-based setups, any later patches must be applied manually from the release notes here. Note that the ALTER privileges were possibly not granted to your schema user so far. In this case, execute GRANT CREATE, ALTER ON nevisfido.* TO 'schema-user'@'localhost'; (with the appropriate username and host). The release notes of 2.4.0.7 originally did not contain the alter table script for the UAF policy column, which was now added. For non-Kubernetes-based setups, here is the script if you have not run it yet: (NEVISFIDO-1912)
ALTER TABLE uaf_sessions
ADD COLUMN IF NOT EXISTS `policy` VARCHAR(128) NULL AFTER `user_id`;

nevisFIDO 2.4.0.7 - 16.08.2023

Breaking changes

  • FIXED: We fixed the incorrectly stored system default timezone timestamps in the database. After the fix, only UTC timestamps will be stored. Existing data can be migrated with the following script if required. (in case your nevisFIDO instance was NOT running in UTC, or existing sessions are required to keep consistent) Replace the proper timezone information in the script where nevisFIDO was running! When you check the data, note that mysql or any other client will convert timestamps to the timezone of the session. So in order to see the UTC timestamp values in your sql client you have to change your client's session timezone to UTC in the current session: SET @@session.time_zone = '+00:00';. (NEVISFIDO-1817)
   UPDATE uaf_sessions SET created = CONVERT_TZ(created, 'Europe/Zurich', 'UTC'), status_updated = CONVERT_TZ(status_updated, 'Europe/Zurich', 'UTC'), reap_timestamp = CONVERT_TZ(reap_timestamp, 'Europe/Zurich', 'UTC');
UPDATE token_sessions SET created = CONVERT_TZ(created, 'Europe/Zurich', 'UTC'), status_updated = CONVERT_TZ(status_updated, 'Europe/Zurich', 'UTC'), reap_timestamp = CONVERT_TZ(reap_timestamp, 'Europe/Zurich', 'UTC');
UPDATE webauthn_sessions SET created = CONVERT_TZ(created, 'Europe/Zurich', 'UTC'), status_updated_at = CONVERT_TZ(status_updated_at, 'Europe/Zurich', 'UTC'), reap_timestamp = CONVERT_TZ(reap_timestamp, 'Europe/Zurich', 'UTC');
  • FIXED: Session creation time was incorrectly overwritten during updates, because of the MariaDB behaviour defined here. For non docker based setups the following script should be manually run:
   ALTER TABLE uaf_sessions MODIFY COLUMN `created` TIMESTAMP(6) NOT NULL DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP(6);
ALTER TABLE uaf_sessions MODIFY COLUMN `status_updated` TIMESTAMP(6) NOT NULL DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP(6);
ALTER TABLE uaf_sessions MODIFY COLUMN `reap_timestamp` TIMESTAMP(6) NOT NULL DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP(6);
ALTER TABLE token_sessions MODIFY COLUMN `created` TIMESTAMP(6) NOT NULL DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP(6);
ALTER TABLE token_sessions MODIFY COLUMN `status_updated` TIMESTAMP(6) NOT NULL DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP(6);
ALTER TABLE token_sessions MODIFY COLUMN `reap_timestamp` TIMESTAMP(6) NOT NULL DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP(6);
ALTER TABLE webauthn_sessions MODIFY COLUMN `created` TIMESTAMP(6) NOT NULL DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP(6);
ALTER TABLE webauthn_sessions MODIFY COLUMN `status_updated_at` TIMESTAMP(6) NOT NULL DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP(6);
ALTER TABLE webauthn_sessions MODIFY COLUMN `reap_timestamp` TIMESTAMP(6) NOT NULL DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP(6);
  • FIXED: an unknown username received across nevisFIDO API's have been standardized to return either HTTP 403 Forbidden, UAF statusCode 1403, or in case of dispatching with a new dispatchResult: userNotFound. (NEVISFIDO-1889)
  • CHANGED: The loginId of the user is now stored in WebAuthn sessions in the database. (NEVISFIDO-1877) For non docker based setups, the following script should be run manually:
ALTER TABLE webauthn_sessions
ADD COLUMN login_id VARCHAR(300) NULL;
  • CHANGED: The length of the user_name column of loginId in nevisIDM, now supports up to 300 characters. The error_message column is changed to be able to store text dynamically which allows larger error messages to be stored in the session. (NEVISFIDO-1873) For non docker based setups the following script should be run manually:
ALTER TABLE webauthn_sessions
MODIFY COLUMN user_name VARCHAR(300),
MODIFY COLUMN error_message TEXT;
  • NEW: The user agent information for the FIDO UAF dispatch targets are now stored in nevisIDM using the custom property fidouaf_user_agent upon creation or modification of the dispatch target. This custom property is new, make sure it exists in nevisIdm. The latest nevisIdm migration scripts contain it. (NEVISFIDO-1829)
  • FIXED: Unknown object and array properties in incoming JSON payloads are now properly ignored upon parsing. Additionally, the nested properties of unknown JSON objects and arrays are no longer logged. (NEVISFIDO-1908)
  • NEW: nevisFIDO supports multiple policies. Refer to the concept guide for additional details. For non-Kubernetes-based setups, the following script should be manually run: (NEVISFIDO-1843)
ALTER TABLE uaf_sessions
ADD COLUMN IF NOT EXISTS `policy` VARCHAR(128) NULL AFTER `user_id`;

Changes and new features

  • FIXED: Special characters (á,é, etc) in userFriendlyName fails to create the FIDO2 credential in nevisIDM. (NEVISFIDO-1865)

nevisFIDO 2.3.0.8 - 17.05.2023

Breaking changes

  • REMOVED: We removed the vmargs legacy command in administrative cli. Use the nevisfido <instance> config env to configure the JAVA_OPTS. (NEVISAUTH-3134)
  • UPGRADED: We upgraded the mariadb-java-client third-party dependency to version 3.1.2. In case you used configuration parameters in the JDBC url check the removed options here. Other notable difference is that the driver no longer sets certain properties including the autocommit, check your database configuration and add the ?autocommit=true to your connection url if needed. The new driver also allows better logging options, see here. This release note was missing from the 2022 August release. (NEVISFIDO-1769)
  • CHANGED: We greatly simplified the username mapping in nevisFIDO to avoid integration pitfalls and potential use-case errors. The credential-repository.username-mapper configuration block is now replaced by a single property user-attribute.

Changes and new features

  • FIXED: The nevisfido-server CLI not properly parsing multiple options specified in the JAVA_OPTS. (NEVISFIDO-1786)
  • FIXED: Dispatch token issue with push dispatching in the OutOfBandFidoUafAuthState where the dispatcher property was set as auth state property but the dispatchTargetId was not provided. (NEVISFIDO-1855)
  • UPGRADED: We updated the Checker Framework third-party dependency to version 3.32.0. (NEVISFIDO-1833)
  • UPGRADED: We updated the Jackson third-party dependency to version 2.15.0. (NEVISFIDO-1761)

  • UPGRADED: We upgraded Spring third-party dependencies to version 5.3.27. (NEVISFIDO-1833)
  • UPGRADED: We updated the Webauthn4j third-party dependency to version 0.21.1.RELEASE. (NEVISFIDO-1833)
  • UPGRADED: We updated the Woodstox-core third-party dependency to version 6.5.1. (NEVISFIDO-1844)
  • NEW: The Fido2AuthState now supports usernameless authentication. Note, that this is not yet supported in the Admin4 patterns. (NEVISFIDO-1789)

nevisFIDO 2.2.1.0 - 17.05.2023

  • FIXED: Dispatch token issue with push dispatching in the OutOfBandFidoUafAuthState where the dispatcher property was set as auth state property but the dispatchTargetId was not provided. (NEVISFIDO-1855)

nevisFIDO 2.2.0.8 - 15.02.2023

Breaking changes

  • CHANGED: The nevisFIDO AuthStates delivered in the nevisfidocl package use the HttpClient introduced in nevisAuth. This means that the configuration of the key material for the AuthStates has changed.
    • Instead of trustStoreRef use httpclient.tls.trustStoreRef.
    • Instead of keyStoreRef and keyObjectRef use httpclient.tls.keyObjectRef. If the previous keyObjectRef was unique, you can drop the value in keyStoreRef. Otherwise, use the value in the new property like the following: value of keyStoreRef / value of keyObjectRef

Changes and new features

  • NEW: The OutOfBandFidoUafAuthState now supports the Usernameless Authentication scenario. We recommend configuration of this use case using nevisAdmin4 patterns. (NEVISFIDO-1765)
  • FIXED: The session reaper does not fail with an ERROR_REAPING_SESSIONS_FROM_SQL_STORAGE error when FIDO2 is not configured. (NEVISFIDO-1748)
  • UPGRADED: We upgraded Apache HttpClient third-party dependencies to version 5.2.1. (NEVISFIDO-1735)
  • UPGRADED: We upgraded jcan-sectoken to not use jcan-commons. jcan-commons is no longer shipped. (NEVISAUTH-3861)
  • UPGRADED: We upgraded Spring Boot third-party dependencies to version 2.7.7. (NEVISFIDO-1734)
  • UPGRADED: We updated the Checker Framework third-party dependency to version 3.29.0. (NEVISFIDO-1734)

Changes and new features

  • FIXED: The nevisIDM user lookup was broken when using FIDO UAF only in the configuration. The use-case connects to nevisIDM using the soap interface where the detail level was incorrectly set to exclude. The detail level is now reset to low to fix the issue. (NEVISFIDO-1742)

nevisFIDO 2.1.0.3 - 16.11.2022

Changes and new features

  • UPGRADED: We upgraded Spring Boot third-party dependencies to version 2.7.3. (NEVISFIDO-1707)

  • FIXED: The client-id of the credential-repository is now parsed as a string, instead of as an integer. (NEVISFIDO-1715)
  • FIXED: We decreased the detail level of the username lookup query to nevisIDM using username-mapper. The fix affects UAF only, and provides performance increase on nevisIDM side. (NEVISFIDO-1665)
  • FIXED: Double query of nevisIDM credentials in case of UAF authentication is now reduced by request-scoped caching. (NEVISFIDO-1673)
  • FIXED: The expected position of extId inside username-mapper in the configuration is now validated at startup time. (NEVISFIDO-1701)
  • FIXED: From now on, REST query to nevisIDM is not sent to look up the extId if an empty or missing username is received from the client in the JSON request. (NEVISFIDO-1701)

nevisFIDO 2.0.1.6 - 17.08.2022

Changes and new features

Breaking changes

  • NEW: FIDO2 is now supported by the component. For more information, see Nevis FIDO2 / WebAuthn Concept and Integration Guide.
  • NEW: FIDO2 uses the nevisIDM REST API, configure the rest-url property for the credential-repository.
    • FIDO UAF still uses the SOAP endpoint, which requires administration-url to be configured.
  • CHANGED: Configuring FIDO2 and FIDO UAF leads to the following changes in the nevisFIDO instance configuration YAML file:
    • Both the fido2 and fido-uaf blocks have a Boolean property enabled.
      • For backwards compatibility, the change for fido-uaf is not mandatory, and if the enabled property is missing, then the deciding factor is whether the fido-uaf configuration block is present.
    • The top-level configuration block authorization is now present under the fido-uaf and fido2 blocks.
    • The top-level configuration block dispatchers is now present under the fido-uaf block.
    • Instead of deprecated the top-level configuration block dispatch-target-repository, use credential-repository instead.
  • UPGRADED: We upgraded the mariadb-java-client third-party dependency to version 3.1.2. In case you used configuration parameters in the JDBC url check the removed options here. Other notable difference is that the driver no longer sets certain properties including the autocommit check your database configuration and add the ?autocommit=true to your connection url if needed. The new driver also allows better logging options, see here. (NEVISFIDO-1769)

General

  • UPGRADED: Jackson third party dependencies are upgraded to version 2.13.3. (NEVISFIDO-1623
  • UPGRADED: Jetty third party dependencies are upgraded to version 9.4.48.v20220622 (NEVISFIDO-1657)
  • UPGRADED: Google-api-client third party dependency is updated to version 1.35.2. (NEVISFIDO-1623)
  • UPGRADED: Checker framework third party dependency is updated to version 3.22.2. (NEVISFIDO-1623)

  • FIXED: The admin CLI now correctly lists instances located in a symlink directory. (NEVISFIDO-1635)
  • FIXED: Component version in jar manifest files and logs. (NEVISFIDO-1662)

nevisFIDO 1.18.0.4 - 18.05.2022

Breaking changes

  • DEPRECATED: The configuration property dispatch-target-repository is no longer parsed by the server. The configuration of credential-repository is used as the configuration of the dispatch target repository instead. (NEVISFIDO-1444)

We removed the dispatch-target-repository entry because separate configurations for the dispatch and credential repositories provides no added value. You can safely remove the dispatch-target-repositoryentry in the configuration YAML file completely, then the credential-repository configuration block is used. If you keep the dispatch-target-repository,the configuration is ignored and a warning is logged.

  • CHANGED: To address a potential performance bottleneck, we removed the dynamic reloading of the policy JSON configuration file. As a result, a nevisFIDO instance requires restart after changing the policy file. This is classified as a breaking change compared to previous behavior. The feature was not actively used, as nevisAdmin 4 and Kubernetes-based deployments restart the component after a configuration change. (NEVISFIDO-1591)

General

  • FIXED: nvluser, nvbuser, and members of the nevisadmin group could not use the nevisAuth Admin CLI commands. The issue is now fixed. (NEVISFIDO-1577)

nevisFIDO 1.17.0.1 - 16.02.2022

Changes and new features

  • CHANGED: The iOS push notification sent via Firebase explicitly requests the default sound to be played. This fixes an issue where no sound is played on iPhones upon receiving the authentication push message. (NEVISFIDO-1528)

nevisFIDO 1.16.0.8 - 17.11.2021

Changes and new features

  • NEW: The default metadata and policy of nevisFIDO now contains the new Android Nevis Access App biometric authenticator, identified with AAID F1D0#0003.

nevisFIDO 1.15.0.3 - 18.08.2021

Changes and new features

  • NEW: As of this release, jcan.Op logging is available in nevisFIDO. You can use the transaction ID (tID) to correlate log lines between nevisProxy, nevisIDM and nevisFIDO. To enable the jcan.Op logging, add the following snippet to the file /var/opt/nevisfido/<instance>/conf/logback.xml:
    <logger name="jcan.Op" level="INFO" additivity="false">
<appender-ref ref="STDOUT" />
<appender-ref ref="FILE" />
</logger>

The next code snippet shows an example output:

  • CHANGE: From now on, the nevisFIDO API responds with the HTTP error code 405 Method not allowed in the case unsupported HTTP methods such as TRACE, HEAD and OPTIONS are used.
  • FIXED: The link dispatcher of nevisFIDO did not properly handle Custom URL Scheme with x-callback-url query parameters in the generated links, such as x-success, x-error and x-cancel. This bug is now fixed.
  • DEPRECATED: The Admin CLI command syntax is deprecated. The syntax will be standardized to match nevisAuth & nevisLogrend both in syntax and functionality with the November Rolling Release. For more information, see Admin CLI and RPM Installation Changes in 11.2021 RR Release]" on the NEVISDOC homepage. Note that the linked documentation does not mention the different syntax of nevisFIDO and its limited functionality.

nevisFIDO 1.14.0.1 - 05.05.2021

Changes and new features

  • NEW: There is a new configuration attribute: fido-uaf.transaction-confirmation.max-text-length. The default value is "200" (characters), as defined in the FIDO specification. "200" is also the minimum value. The maximum value is "2000".

This new feature allows longer transaction confirmation messages than defined in the FIDO specification ("200"), because in some cases 200 characters may not be enough.

However, note that a maximum text length above "200" is beyond the FIDO specifications, which could lead to incompatibility with other systems. So before you set any other value than the default one, we recommend checking the documentation of the other components in the setup for compatibility.

  • FIXED: When a user wanted to modify an existing dispatch target, and included the current name of this dispatch target in the modify dispatch target request, the system incorrectly returned an HTTP 422 error response. This bug has now been fixed.
