Apache Linux Integration Kit 4.1.1 – August 2022

  • Fixed an issue that could cause an error with specific string length for the cookie name.

Apache Linux Integration Kit 4.1 – June 2022

  • Reimplemented fragment preservation with a new approach.

Apache Linux Integration Kit 4.0 – January 2022

  • Added support for:
    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8

Apache Linux Integration Kit 3.3.5 – November 2021

  • Improved the way the adapter handles browser cookie attributes and expired cookies.
  • Removed the OpenToken Adapter from the .zip archive. The latest version is available in the Java Integration Kit. See Updating the OpenToken Adapter.

Apache Linux Integration Kit 3.3.4 – September 2020

  • Fixed an issue that could insert bad characters into legacy cookie names.

Apache Linux Integration Kit 3.3.3 – January 2020

  • Added support for the SameSite cookie flag in web browsers.

Apache Linux Integration Kit 3.3.2 – July 2018

  • Read cookie HTTP request header case insensitively.
  • Remove module info from Server HTTP response header.

  • Resolved issue retrieving session token.

Apache Linux Integration Kit 3.2 – January 2017

  • Query Parameters are encoded properly.
  • Added support for the HttpOnly flag on cookies. HttpOnly prevents the cookie from being intercepted or manipulated. This mitigates a significant portion of vulnerabilities like cross-site scripting (XSS) that the cookie would otherwise be susceptible to. In addition, this ensures the Apache Agent's behavior and security considerations are consistent with behavior for other adapters and agents. Refer to the PingFederateCookieHttpOnly option in the provided sample configuration mod_pf.conf.
  • Added support for disabling virtual hosts by port value.
  • Added support for Ubuntu 16.10.

  • (Bug Fix) The Apache Agent properly handles directories containing spaces.

Apache Linux Integration Kit 2.3 – December 2011

  • Added ability in agent configuration file (mod_pf.conf) to disable the Apache Agent for specified Virtual Hosts.
  • Added ability in mod_pf.conf to specify the Cache-Control HTTP header value.

  • Added ability to expose attributes as HTTP request headers.
  • SAML subject is logged in the Apache access_log.
  • Updated the OpenToken library to support password obfuscation.
  • Updated the OpenToken library to support the POST Transport Method.
  • (Bug fix) Cancel URLs no longer need to be contained in a protected resource.
  • (Bug fix) Cookie domain no longer validated against the agent-configuration file if query or POST is used as the initial transport method.

Apache Linux Integration Kit 1.1 – October 2008

  • Added support for dynamic TargetResource.
  • Simplified configuration by removing several items not needed for the PingFederate implementation.
  • Added support to filters to use the full request URL, including query parameters, to determine if a resource is to be protected.
  • (Bug fix) OpenToken session now uses the cookie-domain property out of mod_plaa.conf rather than the agent configuration file, which would result in failure for the module to start up if the transport mode was set to Query Parameter in the OpenToken adapter setup.
