Anyconnect authentication using Microsoft ADFS SAML

Hello,

I'm trying to authenticate Anyconnect (or Clientless VPN) using Microsoft ADFS, but I can't get it to work.

I'm especially clueless on how to configure the ADFS side.

I've done this to authenticate an ISE Sponsor portal, it's very easy, ISE provides a nice XML configuration file that I can import into ADFS, but there's nothing like it on the ASA documentation, not even how to do it manually.

Is there anyone who can help me?

Thanks,

Silla Rizzoli

Hello,

https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/security/asa/asa97/configuration/vpn/asa-97-vpn-config/webvpn-configure-users.html…

"Show the ASA's SAML SP metadata:

You can get the ASA's SAML SP metadata from https://172.23.34.222/saml/sp/metadata/cloud_idp_onelogin. In the URL, cloud_idp_onelogin is the tunnel group name."

Here is an example from a lab we had a couple years ago using PingFederate as the IDP

10.1.100.254 is the ASAv

https://10.1.100.254/saml/sp/metadata/saml  <<  the last saml is the name of my tunnel group in the lab

HTH

Best regards,

Paul

Hello Paul,

thank you for your very quick and useful answer! Using the XML I got from the ASA, now I get redirected to the IdP, and if I input a set of correct credentials I get redirected back to the ASA, however I cannot login.

I activated "debug webvpn saml 255" and "debug webvpn 255" and I get the following error messages:

[SAML] consume_assertion: The identifier of a provider is unknown to #LassoServer. To register a provider in a #LassoServer object, you must use the methods lasso_server_add_provider() or lasso_server_add_provider_from_buffer().

[saml] webvpn_login_primary_username: SAML assertion validation failed

I edited the Claim Rules on ADFS to send to the ASA the NameID attribute, which I tried to populate with the User-Principal-Name, samAccountName, Given-Name, but none worked.

Do you have any other suggestions? Are there other debug commands that I can use to understand what's going on?


Thanks again,

Silla

Such failures usually due to a wrong value specified for idp-entityID.

Configure a SAML 2.0 Identity Provider (IdP) says,

...

Step 1 Create a SAML identity provider in webvpn config mode and enter saml-idp sub-mode under webvpn.

[no] saml idp idp-entityID

idp-entityID— The SAML IdP entityID must contain 4 to 256 characters.

...

...

We may find the entityID element by downloading the metadata XML from ADFS @ https://<ADFS-SPN>/federationmetadata/2007-06/federationmetadata.xml

Or, check the tool "AD FS Management" > Federation Service Properties > Federation Service identifier.

And that did it! Thank you hslai for the ADFS tip!

Thank you both very much!

How did you get the xml file from the ASA?

Can anyone provide some screenshots of the ADFS configuration? I get the error consumer "association: status code is not success" when debuging the saml auth on the tunnel-group. Looks for me that the Claim rule si not correct. What has to be in der NameID Claim Rule regarding LDAP attributes?

Thank you so much

 

I can answer my question myself by now The Attribute "SAMAccountName" need to be mapped to the predefined "Name ID" attribute in the Claim Chain. So both attributes are to be found in the Drop Down.  Hope this helps the next one.
