SSO (Single Sign On) Installation Procedures

Depending on the package used to install the Client, the SSO installation procedure may vary:

Already available with Client package:

  • TAR package - Run script at location /opt/2X/Client/scripts/install.sh.
  • RPM package - Manual installation is required.

Separate package to Client:

  • Debian package - Requires Client pre-installed. Install package using the default package installer.

Manual installation procedure (RPM Required)

  • Install pam_2xclient.so module to have Single Sign On for Client.

    Note - this file is located under /opt/2X/Client/lib/security/pam_2xclient.so no matter the package used.

  • The module always returns true and will use an authentication token that will be provided by a higher authentication module.

    Note: When a higher authentication module has been configured to SUFFICIENT, it will return on success immediately and pam_2Xclient.so won’t be called. Please change SUFFICIENT TO REQUIRED.

  • To install Client PAM module, add two lines to your session manage service (eg. /etc/pam d/gdm):

    auth  optional pam_2xclient.so
    password  optional pam_2xclient.so
    

    Module arguments:

    Debug: Debug trace will be written to /tmp/pam_2xclient.log. If the file cannot be opened, then syslog will be used.

    You can use debug argument with all module types. EG. Session optional pam_2xclient.so debug

  • The module will create an SSO cookie only for well known session services.

  • You can change the list of services to allow: EG. auth optional pam_2xclient.so gdm kde kdm-kde4
