Passport-SAML

This is a SAML 2.0 authentication provider for Passport, the Node.js authentication library.

The code is based on Michael Bosworth's express-saml library.

Installation

$ npm install passport-saml

Usage

Configure strategy

This example utilizes the Feide OpenIdp identity provider. You need an account there to log in with this. You also need to register your site as a service provider.

The SAML identity provider will redirect you to the URL provided by the path configuration.

passport.use(new SamlStrategy(
  {
    path: '/login/callback',
    entryPoint: 'https://openidp.feide.no/simplesaml/saml2/idp/SSOService.php',
    issuer: 'passport-saml'
  },
  function(profile, done) {
    findByEmail(profile.email, function(err, user) {
      if (err) {
        return done(err);
      }
      return done(null, user);
    });
  })
));

Provide the authentication callback

You need to provide a route corresponding to the path configuration parameter given to the strategy:

app.post('/login/callback',
  passport.authenticate('saml', { failureRedirect: '/', failureFlash: true }),
  function(req, res) {
    res.redirect('/');
  }
);

Authenticate requests

Use passport.authenticate(), specifying saml as the strategy:

app.get('/login',
  passport.authenticate('saml', { failureRedirect: '/', failureFlash: true }),
  function(req, res) {
    res.redirect('/');
  }
);
