Introduction

The article describes how you can setup a Single Sign On Zarafa WebAccess with Active Directory domain controller.
This article has been tested on Red Hat Enterprise Linux server 5, but can also be used as basis for other distributions.


Prerequisites

It is assumed the following prerequisites are in place (document has been tested with RHEL 5):

  • Windows Server 2003 R2 or 2008 SP1 which is configured as domain controller
  • Windows XP or Vista client that has joined the Windows domain


The webserver is placed in a different domain in this case. This is no requirement, but this makes the document a bit more clear on howto create the principal (this can be tricky if you have the servers in different domains).

In this example, the following servers and realms will be referenced:

  • AD Server dc.example.com
  • Linux Server zarafa.testdomain.com
  • Kerberos Realm EXAMPLE.COM


Make sure that both servers are reachable via their FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name). Also make sure that the PTR records are working ok.
Make sure that ntp is configured on all machines so that time is synchronized.


A working setup was created by:

  • Created a forward lookup zone in ADS for testdomain.com
  • Added zarafa.testdomain.com to the forward lookup zone (including PTR record).
  • Setup ntp on the linux machine (zarafa.testdomain.com) to sync it's time with the ADS.


Active Directory configuration

  • Add a new user "httpd-linux" to your Active Directory.
  • Make sure that you enable the option "Password never expires".
  • On the account properties for this user enable "Use DES encryption types for this account".
  • After setting this account property RESET the password for httpd-linux.


Install the Windows Support tools which include the ktpass.exe program. See [1] for the download of these tools.


Execute the following command to create a keytab file for the Apache webserver.

 ktpass -princ HTTP/zarafa.testdomain.com@EXAMPLE.COM 
 -mapuser EXAMPLE\httpd-linux -crypto DES-CBC-MD5 -ptype KRB5_NT_PRINCIPAL 
 -mapop set +desonly -pass a  -out c:\keytab

Copy the keytab file to the directory /etc/httpd/conf/ on your Linux server.
You can use a scp client for this, like Winscp.


Apache configuration

Install the mod_auth_kerb Apache module.

yum install mod_auth_kerb


Open the file /etc/httpd/conf.d/auth_kerb.conf. Add the following lines at the end of this file:

Alias /webaccess /usr/share/zarafa-webaccess
#
<Directory /usr/share/zarafa-webaccess>
  AuthType Kerberos
  AuthName "Kerberos Login"
  KrbMethodNegotiate On
  KrbMethodK5Passwd Off
  KrbServiceName HTTP
  KrbAuthRealms EXAMPLE.COM
  Krb5KeyTab /etc/httpd/conf/keytab
  require valid-user
</Directory>


Set the permissions of the keytab file to 400 and change the owner to the Apache user:

 chmod 400 /etc/httpd/conf/keytab 
 chown apache.apache /etc/httpd/conf/keytab  


Open the file /etc/krb5.conf and insert the following lines:

[libdefaults]
       default_realm = EXAMPLE.COM
# 
[realms]
       ZARAFA.LOCAL = {
               kdc = dc.example.com
               admin_server = dc.example.com
       }
#
[domain_realm]
 .example.com = EXAMPLE.COM
 example.com = EXAMPLE.COM

Replace the kdc and admin_server with the FQDN of the Domain Controller.


Restart Apache to activate all changes.

service httpd restart


Zarafa configuration

To setup a Single Sign On environment with Zarafa Collaboration Platform, you need to make a trust between the Apache webserver and the Zarafa Storage Server. The trust is necessary to handle the WebAccess authentication by the Apache webserver and not anymore by the Zarafa Storage Server.

Change the following line in the /etc/zarafa/server.cfg file:

local_admin_users = root apache


To configure the Zarafa WebAccess for Single Sign On change the following option in the config.php file: In this configuration we assume the Zarafa WebAccess is installed on the same server as the Zarafa Storage Server.

define("LOGINNAME_STRIP_DOMAIN", true);


Restart the Zarafa-server processes to activate this change.

service zarafa-server restart


Webbrowser configuration

Before you can use Single Sign On in your browser, configure the following settings:

Firefox

  • Type in the addressbar about:config
  • Filter on auth
  • Change the options: network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris and network.negotiate-auth.delegation-uris to .example.com


Internet Explorer

  • Go to Tools -> Internet options -> Advanced
  • Make sure the option "Enable integrated Windows authentication" is enabled
  • Add the url of the Zarafa server (http://zarafa.example.com) to your "Local Intranet" sites


Restart your browser and open the webaccess via the FQDN (http://zarafa.example.com/webaccess). If the configuration is correctly done, the webaccess will login without typing the username and password.
