Changelogs LinOTP

Warning:

Before updating, please assure, that you have a backup of your encryption key and the database. Having a backup of your linotp.cfg / linotp.ini file is also recommended.

If you want to upgrade from LinOTP 2.12 to LinOTP 3, please refer to to the LinOTP 3 migration guide.

LinOTP 3.2

Enhancements

  • Added grace to license volume exceeding and display accordingly a message in the the web ui.
  • Added extended information in HOTP/TOTP CSV import UI.
  • The CLI now uses a common time format for all backup filenames. The format is configurable via config BACKUP_FILE_TIME_FORMAT.
  • CLI command linotp audit cleanup now writes a backup file of the deleted audit entries by default. Export dir defaults to the LinOTP backup dir. Exporting can be disabled with a new flag --no-export.
  • Added the configuration option for the HttpSmsProvider to define the server certificate verification option.
  • Added a jwt based admin authentication into LinOTP, so that configuring apache to protect admin access to linotp is not needed any more. Linotp therefore uses a special realm, the admin realm, which contains the resolvers that are allowed to adminstrate LinOTP. For bootstraping, an internal reserved managed resolver is used for which users could be added via the linotp command line tool (s. README.md). The Manage-ui and the corresponding interfaces have been extended to indicate if a realm or resolver is used for administration.
  • Prevent overwriting of the local admin resolver via the user import.
  • New linotp admin cli command to set support license, get support info and verify the current support status.
  • Endpoint delRealm does not cause Error if no realm argument is passed
  • Added configuration settings JWT_SECRET_KEY, JWT_SECRET_SALT, and JWT_SECRET_ITERATIONS. The latter two control the PBKDF2 function that is applied to the default secret (the first key from SECRET_FILE) if JWT_SECRET_KEY is not given or is empty. Refer to linotp config explain for details.
  • Email challenge can have a custom message for the user which can be set in the config by the EMAIL_CHALLENGE_PROMPT entry.
  • Extended sms provider logging
  • Added TIMEOUT parameter for all networking providers
  • SMS blocking time is now configurable in the SMS token configuration dialog. The blocking time (in seconds) is the period that needs to pass before another challenge can be triggered by the same user.
  • Admin policies now support resolver defintion for admin users
  • A new API endpoint /manage/context provides context information for logged in Manage-UI users.
  • Reimplement additional getToken safeguard by defining the settings DISABLE_CONTROLLERS and ENABLE_CONTROLLERS - by default the DISABLE_CONTROLLERS contains the 'gettoken' controller.

Breaking Changes

  • The helpdesk controller has been removed.
  • Apache-based admin authentication is no longer supported.
  • Audit Trail export is now ordered descending (latest logs first) when done from the Manage-UI.
  • Admin authentication: 'Cross site scripting request forgery (CSRF)' is no longer handled via the session request parameter. Instead, a CSRF-protection token, which is available via cookies, must be sent in the request header. Non-modifying requests can be requested via 'GET' and do not need to send the CSRF token. The session parameter that was used before should be omitted. API endpoints restricted to accept only via 'POST' must use the new header. See the Migration guide for further details.
  • Some API endpoints are now restricted to the specific HTTP method which they can be used with. Endpoints requiring an admin authentication are now restricted to the POST method if they are modifying data. The allowed HTTP methods are highlighted in the API documentation.
  • Logging has more configurations now whose config variables are starting by LOG like LOG_FOO. Different formatting or log level can be set for the LOG_FILE or the LOG_CONSOLE. Some of the older config variables for logging are renamed for consistency.

Deprecations

  • In the future, all API endpoints will only allow certain HTTP methods. Data-modifying endpoints - that are not restricted yet- will only allow POST requests in the future, and read-only endpoints will only allow GET requests. The now deprecated HTTP methods are also highlighted in the API documentation.

Bug Fixes:

  • License limits are now enforced during userservice token enrollment.
  • Prevent creating or importing OATH (HOTP, TOTP, Ocra2) tokens with malformatted seeds.
  • License monitoring shows license usage for user-based licenses.
  • User-based license reporting now filters for date and realm correctly and supports wildcards in realm and status.
  • In a Debian environment with a MySQL database, it is not anymore required to set the charset=utf8 parameter as otherwise, resolvers would not correctly display imported users if they contain utf-8 characters. Using flask- mysqlalchemy connection solved this problem.
  • License exception messages are improved and in case of the user service the message suggests asking the system administrator.
  • Comprehensive message after importing tokens.
  • Adjusted functional_special tests to become regular tests.
  • Porting issue for radius token with forwarding transactions.
  • Reply to sms challenge with pin+otp.
  • User import now always deletes users in the correct managed resolver.
  • The linotp support cmd can now install demo licenses.
  • The linotp cli commands would not break anymore if localization is involved.
  • Resolver names are now always treated case-sensitive.
  • setConfig is now called from the UI only once to save all parameters in one api call.
  • Audit key verification errors solved by using newer version of pycryptodomex.

Dependencies:

  • Update jQuery and jQuery-Migrate

Packaging

  • The linotp package now Suggests: python3-smpplib.

LinOTP 3.1

Enhancements

  • ManageUI policy editor utilizes full window width for improved layout.
  • Inform the admin via audit log if there is a challenge integrity error.
  • Userservice allows enrollment of HOTP tokens with the webprovisionGOOGLE policy.
  • Userservice allows enrollment of TOTP tokens with the webprovisionGOOGLEtime policy.
  • RestSMSProvider allows access to nested JSON request data structure items by path.
  • Use database config value to enable get_otp feature
  • Simplify the HMAC acountname and tokenissuer fallback rules for a more predictable behavior in the google authenticator url.
  • Token monitoring now better sanitizes the status parameter
  • Improved Manage-UI error message if something fails in the initial config load phase.
  • sqlite can be used as audit database - the response of audit/search now skips streaming the response data for sqlite audit databases.
  • The server now checks whether the audit table exists or not on start.

Breaking changes

  • No longer support AUDIT_POOL_RECYCLE configuration setting.
  • Sqlite audit databases can no longer share the same file with LinOTP. If configured to share the same file, LinOTP will add a suffix to the audit database file name.
  • Audit database timestamp is now ISO 8601 formatted. The timestamp is saved in UTC timezone instead of server local time.

Bug Fixes

  • mOTP tokens can now be used in challenge response mode
  • Adjust yubico token config text to make it clear that a dedicated API key from yubico is required.
  • An error message is now shown in the Manage UI if a token import fails
  • API /admin/testconnection accepts only the name of an existing resolver as parameter. Other parameters are ignored. This fixes the ability to submit unauthorized ldap connection requests.
  • Manage-UI no longer hangs on failed resolver save requests.
  • Token monitoring now correctly counts tokens that are assigned to multiple realms only once in mysql and sqlite databases.
  • Dynamic user data (e.g. e-mail addresses and phone numbers) are always refreshed during resolver lookups triggered by the authentication workflow. The policies sms_dynamic_mobile_number, dynamic_email_address, and voice_dynamic_mobile_number therefore directly reflect external user data changes.
  • Legacy Selfservice now correctly recognizes type=yubikey tokens in MFA login.
  • Manage-UI no longer gets stuck in the interface initializtaion if the logged in user is missing required system permissions. Now, it is guaranteed that a logout is always possible.
  • support the assignment of multiple tokens within one request to prevent race conditions for example with token_count policies
  • getotp view is now working with python3
  • Token validity period (stored in UTC) is now compared against current time in UTC instead of the server's timezone.
  • Log username, realm, serial and token type in audit table when performing a validate/check_status request.
  • Fix padding of crypted data by migrating to pkcs7 padding via the linotp init database command.
  • Validate no longer wrongly references autoenrollment for users that do not own any tokens as the error message.

LinOTP 3.0

Enhancements

  • LinOTP is ported from Python 2.7 to Python 3.6.
  • LinOTP is ported from Pylons to Flask.
  • Managed resolvers (Internally stored users) now use the LinOTP database connection session to work with replicated databases and after db restores on different database connection parameters.
  • New Token Selfservice user interface is installed as a recommended dependency for "/selfservice". The existing SelfService is deprecated but still available under /selfservice-legacy.
  • New config value SITE_ROOT_REDIRECT allows to customize the redirect path if the user requests the site root path ("/"). If not set, the browser is redirected to the legacy selfservice. The new Selfservice will pick priority over the deprecated Selfservice if installed.
  • Support reencoding of LinOTP 2 databases from ISO 8859-1 (Latin1) to UTF-8 via the LinOTP CLI. Latin1 used to be the default for Python 2 against mysql but is no longer valid for Python 3.
  • Selfservice supports testing tokens after enrollment via the policy verify. This feature only works in the new Selfservice.
  • Selfservice improved handling of expired sessions.
  • A new 'linotp' CLI installed on the path provides:
    • admin - administrative commands to manage the linotp application server.
    • audit - administrative commands to manage the audit log.
    • backup - manage database backups.
    • config - configuration file diagnostics.
    • dbsnapshot - Manage system-independent database 'snapshots'.
    • init - key generation and database initialisation/migration.
    • ldap-test - extensive testing of LDAP backends.
    • routes - show the available URL endpoints of LinOTP.
    • run - run a development server.
    • shell - run a shell in the app context.
  • Settings can now be configured using environment variables LINOTP_<SETTING_NAME>.
  • Improved config file handling via LINOTP_CFG environment variable:
    • LINOTP_CFG env allows to set a custom search path for config files.
    • /usr/share/linotp/linotp.cfg contains distribution default settings.
    • Support for wildcard paths.
    • By default, /etc/linotp/linotp.cfg and /etc/linotp/conf.d/*.cfg are configured for adminsistrator configuration overrides.
    • LINOTP_CFG env treats directory /foo like /foo/*.cfg.
    • Read config file list from file if LINOTP_CFG doesn't exist.
  • Support for SoftHSMv2.
  • Migration of standalone scripts to linotp CLI subcommands:
    • linotp-backup is now available as linotp backup create.
    • linotp-restore is now available as linotp backup restore.
    • linotp-create-enckey is now available as linotp init enc-key.
  • Improved path settings. See DEVELOP.md on how the new options ROOT_DIR, CACHE_DIR, DATA_DIR, and LOGFILE_DIR are used and how they are configured by default.
  • Improved error code separation to differentiate between different problems preventing token enrollment.
  • The /userservice/enroll API now honors default values for hotp and totp tokens defined by the folowing selfservice policies:
    • hmac_otplen, totp_otplen: for the number of digits of an OTP.
    • hmac_hashlib, totp_hashlib: the HMAC hashing algorithm used.
    • totp_timestep: the time stepping for totp tokens.
  • Customization of Selfservice information fields via policies:
    • footer_text: Can be used to display e.g. copyright notices.
    • imprint_url: URL to an imprint/ legal notice page.
    • privacy_notice: URL to a privacy notice page.

Removed and no longer supported

  • Apache 2.2 configuration.
  • linotp.ini configuration file format.
  • non-systemd init script.
  • OCRA token.
  • Vasco token.
  • OSIAM SCIM UserIdResolver.
  • The following tools scripts are no longer part of LinOTP:
    • linotp-auth-radius
    • linotp-convert-gemalto
    • linotp-convert-token
    • linotp-convert-xml-to-CSV
    • linotp-create-ad-users

    • linotp-sql-janitor
    • linotp-token-usage
    • linotp-tokens-used
    • testRadiusChallResponse.sh
    • totp-token

Breaking changes

  • Translations fr, it, es, and zh are removed because of their bad state.
  • LinOTP no longer accepts custom LDAP trusted certificates in the UserIDREsolver interface. Instead, it now fully relies on the system trusted certificates.
  • LDAP resolver connections to "ldap://" URLs with encryption switched off no longer attempt "stealth" encryption behind the user's back with an optional fallback to a plain connection. Instead, the encryption state can be explicitly controlled. (In the UI, the LDAP resolver dialog now defaults to "use STARTTLS" when an "ldap://" URL is specified, but if the user deselects this then TLS will not be used at all.)
  • LinOTP 3.0 removes all existing audit log entries during automatic database migrations because signatures from old audit log entries - written in LinOTP 2.x (using Python 2) - can not be validated with python 3.
  • Replace unmaintained mysql driver with mysqlclient driver.
  • LinOTP no longer works with ISO 8859-1 (Latin1) encoded databases. LinOTP provides a migration path if it detects a database that might require reencoding.
  • LinOTP no longer initilizes all required data automatically on startup to increase server speed. Instead, the server now only performs a simple database check at startup; the linotp init database command must be run manually if the database check fails. The postinst script will still initialize the database though.

Bug Fixes

  • /gettoken/getotp now works on tokens that are not in a realm.
  • LinOTP legacy Selfservice authorization is now correctly responding with an "unauthorized" http response instead of an internal server error.
  • After enrollment, Push- and QR-Token enrollment status will stay completed even when these tokens are disabled.
  • CSV user import now works correctly with files using quote escaping.
  • Ensure consistent policy behaviour in all scopes:
    • Specific policies override wildcard policies. This ensures that actions can be restricted for a subset of users.
    • Fix quoting of actions such as sms_text="Hello, your otp='<otp>'".
    • All actions are matched for a given user if some of the actions are less explicitly defined regarding user and realm fields.
  • User based license evaluation now correctly only counts distinct users.
  • Translate maxtoken errors correctly.
  • Changing the TOTP time step for an existing token now adjusts the otp counter to allow the token to keep working. The otp counter is used to prevent replay attacks.
  • Unintentional inclusion of file config values in Config database is removed to not have security critical information API accessible.

Packaging

  • Include README.md in packaging artifacts.
  • Ensure configuration files and generated directories are owned by the linotp service user.
  • Support added to set up linotp with postgres in postinst through migration to dbconfig-common for database setup.
  • Downgrade mysql dependency to Recommends. The system administrator should install the package for their database or allow apt to install recommended packages.

Updating from LinOTP 2.6.1.1 to LinOTP 2.7

LinOTP 2.7 is a major release that contains some big package structure changes.

In our effort to be completely open source we have removed our EE (Enterprise Edition) packages and merged them into the old CE (Community Edition) packages leaving you with packages that contain all the features. The CE/EE terminology is obsolete.

If you had previously edited your linotp.ini to activate the audit trail please update the file and replace:

linotpAudit.type = linotp.lib.Audit.SQLAudit

with:

linotpAudit.type = linotp.lib.audit.SQLAudit

Updating a deb install

If you are updating from one of our repositories simply:

apt-get update && apt-get upgrade

If you previously had a LinOTP Community Edition you may want to additionally install the linotp-smsprovider package:

apt-get install linotp-smsprovider

If you are installing via dpkg you have to remove the obsolete packages first:

apt-get remove linotp-ee linotp-useridresolver-ee
dpkg -i linotp linotp-useridresolver linotp-smsprovider

The LinOTP Admin clients have been renamed:

  • linotp-adminclient-ce is now called linotp-adminclient-cli
  • linotp-adminclient-ee is now called linotp-adminclient-gui

Install them like this:

sudo apt-get install linotp-adminclient-gui linotp-adminclient-cli

Updating a pip install

Before upgrading to LinOTP 2.7 you need to remove the obsolete EE packages:

pip uninstall LinOTP-EE LinOtpUserIdResolverEE

Issue the following command to update your pip installation:

pip install --upgrade LinOTP LinOtpUserIdResolver SMSProvider

After this you need to restart your LinOTP webserver.

To upgrade the LinOTP Admin clients you have to remove the obsolete packages first:

pip uninstall LinOTPAdminClientCE LinOTPAdminClientEE
pip install LinOTPAdminClientCLI LinOTPAdminClientGUI

Changelog

Updating from LinOTP 2.6.1 to LinOTP 2.6.1.1

LinOTP 2.6.1.1 is a patch release for LinOTP 2.6.1

SMSProvider 2.6.1.1 has one new dependency:

  • socksipy, either contained in httplib2 >= 0.7 or from its own package.

Updating a deb install

Install the necessary dependencies:

apt-get install python-socksipy

Unfortunately on Debian and Ubuntu you are forced to install the python-socksipy package because Debian Squeeze does not support python-httplib2 >= 0.7 and therefore requires python-socksipy.

If you have downloaded all packages you need to issue the following command:

dpkg -i linotp_2.6.1.1-1_all.deb \
        linotp-smsprovider_2.6.1.1-1_all.deb \
        libpam-linotp_2.6.1.1-1_all.deb

Updating a pip install

Issue the following command to update your pip installation:

pip install --upgrade linotp pam_py_linotp

A SMSProvider pip installation will need following additional python package:

  • httplib2 >= 0.7 or socksipy.

To upgrade the enterprise edition components you need to download the latest version from the customer portal and issue the commands:

pip install --upgrade /path/to/SMSProvider-2.6.1.1.tar.gz

After this you need to restart your LinOTP webserver.
