Issue:

We're running Federation with one of our partners. When the Service Provider generates an SAML 2.0 AuthnRequest over HTTP-POST and the user takes more than 3 minutes to complete the authentication process, the transaction fails with a 400 error. Why ? How can we fix this ?

Environment:
Policy Server Version: 12.52 SP1 CR5 Policy Server OS: RHEL 6.8 SPS Version: 12.52 SP1 SPS OS: RHEL 6.8
Cause:

For POST Authnrequest Bindings, we generate a persistent GUID cookie. By default, we set this cookie expiration time to 3 minutes. Once the expiration time has passed, we end up with an error.

Resolution:

This is fixed in Policy Server, Policy Store structure ( FedObjects.xdd, FssSmObjects.xdd ), Web Agent Option Pack and AdminUI 12.52SP1CR08. You have to upgrade all these components to get the functionality from this fix.

> Added new text field with name "GUID Cookie Validity Durartion (Seconds), in SAML2, IDP-SP Partnership, to provide value, when AuthnRequest POST Binding is selected. This value should be >=180 and <=9999.

Please help us improve!
