Description Simo Sorce 2016-06-07 10:07:46 UTC
This option is required by the upcoming IdM (ipa-server) release

Comment 1 Petr Vobornik 2016-06-07 10:36:07 UTC
I'll add more info, from pull request<https://github.com/modauthgssapi/mod_auth_gssapi/pull/87/commits/03d965e57abddc0eed2b4987c866b049921d06d7>:

### GssapiImpersonate

This option can be used even if AuthType GSSAPI is not used for given
Location or LocationMatch, to obtain service ticket for a user that was
already authenticated by different module.

The principal of the user is retrieved from the internal r->user
identifier which typically holds the username from the authentication

Make sure the server principal is set to allow to acquire forwardable
tickets to itself from arbitrary users, for use with constrained
delegation, for example with the option +ok_to_auth_as_delegate.

- **Enable with:** GssapiImpersonate On
- **Default:** GssapiImpersonate Off

It is needed for bug 1317377 - IdM,  Web UI: allow Federated authentication.

Please provide steps to verify this.

Comment 8 Jan Pazdziora 2016-08-29 11:15:21 UTC
I could likely be tested as part of the smart card / x509 feature testing:

Please see the page Jan posted.

FYI, I do see that option on an IPA server being used for testing IPA Web UI authentication with smart cards.
