Flex :: Security - Blaze DS Not Passing OpenSSO Authentication Cookie?

Jun 15, 2010

I have a set of RESTful web services. These services are protected on a Glassfish server by OpenSSO. When I attempt to call the RESTful services directly from a browser, OpenSSO intercepts the request, then forwards the request to the REST service once the user's credentials are authenticated. OpenSSO utilizes a session cookie on subsequent requests (until the session is invalidated) . I'm sure this piece is working correctly.We'd like to call these services from a Flex client. In order to enable PUT and DELETE operations, we set up BlazeDS to proxy the RESTful requests from the flex client to the REST service. When security to the RESTful services is disabled, this piece works great.

Now we're trying to secure the entire application. We've placed the Flex SWF into a war and deploy to Glassfish. We've placed security around this resource and when a user attempts to download the SWF (through an HTML link in the war), OpenSSO intercepts the request, then forwards to the application on successful authorization (just like it does for the RESTful web services).The problem is - the RESTful calls made by the Flex application (via BlazeDS) are failing. OpenSSO seems to be intercepting these requests as well and again asking for the users credentials. It doesn't seem the authentication cookies are being passed to (or maybe by) the BlazeDS proxy.

Actionscript 3 :: Security Sandbox With Flex And AppEngine - Getting Client.Error.MessageSend Channel.Security.Error?

Dec 20, 2009

I'm having trouble with an AS3 AMF RemoteObject request that is hosted on App Engine. I have a crossdomain.xml file in the root of the domain, and also one at the remoting endpoint.Here are the contents of the root crossdomain.xml:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<site-control permitted-cross-domain-policies ="all"/>[code].....

Loading the swf file and testing it on my machine works just fine... I think that may have something to do with me having the debugger version of Flash Player. When I push it up to App Engine to make it public, other clients access it and get a Client.Error.MessageSend Channel.Security.Error error Error #2048 url: http:[url].......I am using Flex 4 beta, and the App Engine Python runtime. I have tried full wildcard in the crossdomain, and even accessing the data endpoint at a relative URL so as to avoid this error.

Flex :: Windows Authentication Is Not Working In Flex

Feb 2, 2011

We have a situation where a web application within an intranet requires windows authentication. This way employees of the company can login to their desktops and have automatic access to the web application and also be identified automatically without having to login because Windowns Authentication takes care of that. The problem is that we've added a Flex module to the web application. The web application comes up fine and authenticates the user can then navigate to the page where we have the Flex application. Which loads fine. The problem is that the Flex application also needs to communicate with the same server about this user but this communication is not working and is prompting the user for a password. Even if the correct user/pass is entered it fails and the Flex application can't talk to the server which requires Windows authentication.

Our expectations was the since the IE browser housing the flex application was already authenticated that all communication from the Flex app would also carry with it the necessary information to enable it to access the server without authentication.

AS3 :: Test Services With Cookie Based Sessions In Flex?

Jul 6, 2011

As the title indicates the question is in regards to the service layer of a flex application. Specifically in a test case class. To call the services the user must first authenticate through an html/CF based page. Once that's done and the authentication has occurred the user is directed to the html page with the flex application embedded in. Once authenticated the server side CF code writes a cookie to the users computer. This cookie is then read by the flex app and is required for the flex app to make calls to the CF services.

The question is: how should this be handled in a test case class for the service class in the flex app? The following steps need to basically take place: use some account data to hit the server and authenticate, the cookie then needs to be written (which it will already), then the test case needs to pick up the session id from the cookie and pass it to the service call within the test case. That just all seems like too much for a test case class.

So, how is this type of thing usually handled. From what I gather it's typical for web service calls to require a session id like this.

Flex :: Avoid Native Authentication Popup In AIR On Mac?

Twitter provides a header (suppress_response_codes=true), which returns any error as a status 200 with the error message. I'm using HTTPService to connect to a service without a header like this. Are there any properties or headers I can send to avoid this popup?

Actionscript 3 :: How To Define Proxy Without Blaze DS

Jan 5, 2012

I have an AIR app that I need to define a proxy for because the services sit behind a firewall. We are not using BlazeDS so I can't define the proxy settings in the proxy-config.xml file. So, how do I do it? I'm guessing that I'm not the first person who has had to work behind a firewall when accessing data so I'm not sure why I can't find any documentation on the web anywhere about this.AIR says it is supposed to automatically know and use the proxy configuration from your system, i.e. default browser. In there, I don't set a manual proxy, I use the 'automatic configuration' and point it to a .dat file. Could this be where the problem is? Does AIR not know how to understand this?There's no way to set a proxy on an HTTPService component unless you are using Blaze DS or LCDS? Is this true? I'd hate to have to add that to my application just so I can get this accomplished.

Flash :: Create Cookie Through Flex / Coldfusion That Is Readable By Another Template?

Feb 4, 2010

Inside a flex app, I have a user login. The login calls a ColdFusion function as a remote object which authenticates the user and, if applicable, returns their id and access level. This works fine, but now I'm at the point where I want to also create a cookie for another ColdFusion template (called from fileReference.upload()) to be able to access later. I have tried several different methods for creating the cookie -- cfcookie, creating a cookie with JavaScript inside the ColdFusion function, and creating the cookie with JavaScript with an external interface once the coldfusion function returns to the flex result handler. All of these have been tried with a plethora of options regarding expiration, path, and domain tags.

Asp.net :: File Upload In Flex When IIS Is Set To 'integrated Windows Authentication'

Dec 8, 2009

I have a flex app that allows the user to upload a file.The flex side uses the FileReference.upload method that goes to an .aspx page that handles the upload. It works only intermittently when I have IIS set to integrated windows authentication.That said, for testing purposes,I wrote a separate aspx page that does a file upload and this always works.I'd like to leverage the file import,though, within the nice looking flex app and not kick off a new webpage for a file upload.In looking at the IIS logs I have a hypothesis as to what's happening, and want to know if someone has full understanding as to why it may only intermittently work and can confirm or deny this: Flex' FileReference upload guts does whatever it does on the client then initiates a POST request to my .aspx page.On the times it failes, the IIS logs state that IE didn't pass the credentials so denies the request then sends a 401 response.

I don't get this 401 response on the flex side even though I'm listening for HTTP status codes (flash bug?).A new request is somehow immediately made to perform the upload again (it's not my code). I'm inferring this by looking at the IIS lgos which shows a second POST right after the previous one, only this time the user credentials are sent through, but the kicker is that the file the user uploaded is not uploaded this time. I infer this by the fact that the IIS logs show 0 bytes are posted, whereas the previous 401 request show a lot of bytes are POSTed.On the times it does work, what happens is that the first request for the HTTP POST the FileReference makes so happens to send the windows credentials along, so the client is not challenged.
