Simple oauth2 subrequest handler for nginx

Project description

https://travis-ci.com/cheshirekow/oauthsub.svg?branch=master https://readthedocs.org/projects/oauthsub/badge/

Simple oauth2 subrequest handler for reverse proxies

Purpose

The goal of oauthsub is to enable simple and secure Single Sign On by deferring authentication to an oauth2 provider (like google, github, microsoft, etc).

See the examples in the documentation for ideas on how best to use it.

Installation

Install through pip:

pip install oauthsub

or see the documentation for more options.

Usage

usage: oauthsub [-h] [--dump-config] [-v] [-l {debug,info,warning,error}]
                [-c CONFIG_FILE] [-s {flask,gevent,twisted}]
                [--rooturl ROOTURL] [--flask-debug [FLASK_DEBUG]]
                [--flask-privkey FLASK_PRIVKEY]
                [--response-header RESPONSE_HEADER]
                [--allowed-domains [ALLOWED_DOMAINS [ALLOWED_DOMAINS ...]]]
                [--host HOST] [--port PORT] [--logdir LOGDIR]
                [--route-prefix ROUTE_PREFIX]
                [--session-key-prefix SESSION_KEY_PREFIX]
                [--bypass-key BYPASS_KEY] [--custom-template CUSTOM_TEMPLATE]
                [--enable-forbidden [ENABLE_FORBIDDEN]]

This lightweight web service performs authentication. All requests that reach
this service should be proxied through nginx. See:
https://developers.google.com/api-client-library/python/auth/web-app

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  --dump-config         Dump configuration and exit
  -v, --version         show program's version number and exit
  -l {debug,info,warning,error}, --log-level {debug,info,warning,error}
                        Increase log level to include info/debug
  -c CONFIG_FILE, --config-file CONFIG_FILE
                        use a configuration file
  -s {flask,gevent,twisted}, --server {flask,gevent,twisted}
                        Which WGSI server to use
  --rooturl ROOTURL     The root URL for browser redirects
  --flask-debug [FLASK_DEBUG]
                        Enable flask debugging for testing
  --flask-privkey FLASK_PRIVKEY
                        Secret key used to sign cookies
  --response-header RESPONSE_HEADER
                        If specified, the authenticated user's ``username``
                        will be passed as a response header with this key.
  --allowed-domains [ALLOWED_DOMAINS [ALLOWED_DOMAINS ...]]
                        List of domains that we allow in the `hd` field of
                        thegoogle response. Set this to your company gsuite
                        domains.
  --host HOST           The address to listening on
  --port PORT           The port to listen on
  --logdir LOGDIR       Directory where we store resource files
  --route-prefix ROUTE_PREFIX
                        All flask routes (endpoints) are prefixed with this
  --session-key-prefix SESSION_KEY_PREFIX
                        All session keys are prefixed with this
  --bypass-key BYPASS_KEY
                        Secret string which can be used to bypass
                        authorization if provided in an HTTP header
                        `X-OAuthSub-Bypass`
  --custom-template CUSTOM_TEMPLATE
                        Path to custom jinja template
  --enable-forbidden [ENABLE_FORBIDDEN]
                        If true, enables the /forbidden endpoint, to which you
                        can redirect 401 errors from your reverse proxy. This
                        page is a simple message with active template but
                        includes login links that will redirect back to the
                        forbidden page after a successful auth.

Configuration

oauthsub is configurable through a configuration file in python (the file is exec``ed). Each configuration variable can also be specified on the command line (use ``oauthsub --help to see a list of options). If you’d like to dump a configuration file containing default values use:

oauthsub --dump-config

Which outputs something like:

.. dynamic: config-begin
# The root URL for browser redirects
rooturl = 'http://localhost'

# Enable flask debugging for testing
flask_debug = False

# Secret key used to sign cookies
flask_privkey = 'KALJE0Unas2dd8ao3p/T55htwbL5RrKX'

# If specified, the authenticated user's ``username`` will be passed as a
# response header with this key.
response_header = None

# List of domains that we allow in the `hd` field of thegoogle response. Set
# this to your company gsuite domains.
allowed_domains = ['gmail.com']

# The address to listening on
host = '0.0.0.0'

# The port to listen on
port = 8081

# Directory where we store resource files
logdir = '/tmp/oauthsub/logs'

# Flask configuration options. Set session config here.
flaskopt = {
  "PERMANENT_SESSION_LIFETIME": 864000,
  "SESSION_FILE_DIR": "/tmp/oauthsub/session_data",
  "SESSION_TYPE": "filesystem"
}

# All flask routes (endpoints) are prefixed with this
route_prefix = '/auth'

# All session keys are prefixed with this
session_key_prefix = 'oauthsub-'

# Secret string which can be used to bypass authorization if provided in an HTTP
# header `X-OAuthSub-Bypass`
bypass_key = None

# Dictionary mapping oauth privider names to the client secrets for that
# provider.
client_secrets = {}

# Path to custom jinja template
custom_template = None

# If true, enables the /forbidden endpoint, to which you can redirect 401 errors
# from your reverse proxy. This page is a simple message  with active template
# but includes login links that will redirect back to the forbidden page after a
# successful auth.
enable_forbidden = True

# Which WGSI server to use (flask, gevent, twisted)
server = 'flask'


# This is not used internally, but is used to implement our user lookup
# callback below
_user_map = {
    "alice@example.com": "alice",
    "bob@example.com": "bob"
}

# This is a callback used to lookup the user identity based on the credentials
# provided by the authenticator.
def user_lookup(authenticator, parsed_response):
  if authenticator.type == "GOOGLE":
    # Could also use `id` to lookup based on google user id
    return _user_map.get(parsed_response.get("email"))

  return None

Testing the service

Test the service directly on localhost, put your client secrets in a configuration file and (assuming you’ve enabled http://lvh.me:8081/auth/callback as an authorized redirect on google) run with:

oauthsub --flask-debug \
         --config /path/to/your/config.py

And then navigate to http://localhost:8081/auth from your browser.

See the documentation for more detailed testing instructions including how to test with NGINX.
