One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions 6.2.0 - Creating custom Credential Store plugins

Plugin modification examples

The following example shows a simple plugin that can return both passwords and private keys based on usernames:

Example: return passwords and username-based private keys
class Plugin(object):
    passdb = {
        "user": ["password"],
    }
    privkeydb = {
        "user1": [('ssh-rsa', """

The following example demonstrates how the predefined hooks can be enhanced with additional logic:

Example: enhance predefined hooks

class Plugin(object):
    passdb = {

        "jack": ["jackspw", ],

                        gateway_username, gateway_password,
                        target_username, target_host, target_port,
                        target_domain=None, gateway_domain=None, gateway_groups=None):

        # Discard "None" parameters, log all other returned parameters
        args = list(inspect.getargvalues(inspect.currentframe()).args)
        logkws = ["{arg}='{value}'".format(arg=arg, value=locals()[arg])
        for arg in args if arg != 'self' and locals()[arg] is not None]

        if "call_count" in cookie:
            call_count = cookie["call_count"]
        else:
            call_count = 0

        logkws.append("call_count='{0}'".format(call_count))

        print ("Retrieving passwords, non-null parameters follow; " + ', '.join(logkws))

        # Return the password list for the user
        pwlist = []
        if target_username in self.passdb:
            pwlist = self.passdb[target_username]
            print "Retrieved passwords;"

            "cookie": {"call_count": call_count + 1}
        }

    def authentication_completed(self, session_id, cookie):
        call_count = cookie["call_count"] if "call_count" in cookie else None

        call_count = cookie["call_count"] if "call_count" in cookie else None
        print ("Received notification about session end; "
            "call_count='{call_count}'").format(call_count=call_count)
        return None

The sample configuration file (default.cfg)

Your plugin .zip file may contain an optional default.cfg sample configuration file. This file serves to provide an example configuration that you can use as a basis for customization if you wish to adapt the plugin to your site's needs.

The only prerequisites for this file are as follows:

  • It must be a UTF-8 encoded text file.
  • The size of the file must not exceed 10 KiB.

Other than these prerequisites, the contents of the file are not restricted in any way.

Plugin troubleshooting

On the default log level, One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS) logs everything that the plugin writes to stdout and stderr. Log message lines are prefixed with the session ID of the proxy, which makes it easier to find correlating messages.

To transfer information between the methods of a plugin (for example, to include data in a log message when the session is closed), you can use a cookie.

If an error occurs while executing the plugin, SPS automatically terminates the session.

NOTE:

This error is not visible in the verdict of the session. To find out why the session was terminated, you have to check the logs.
