Play it Again, SAML

I had to integrate SAML authetication on a Laravel application, so I composer required the laravel-saml2 package (actually, the remove_mcrypt branch. You know: mcrypt has been dropped in PHP 7.2...) and configured it to attach to the SimpleSAML-PHP instance I recently deployed. Of course nothing worked out of the box, so my experience is worth a blog post. On the server side (SimpleSAML-PHP): the standard response for authentication includes the password attribute. With the user's password hash in binary format. And, aside the security implications of this, the…

Check the Checkbox

I often use the "add and remove rows from a grid" pattern to permit handling groups of data, but today I had to manage a particular use case. Given a simple table <table> <tr> <td> <input type="text" name="firstname[]"> </td> <td> <input type="text" name="lastname[]"> </td> <td> <input type="email" name="email[]"> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <input type="text"…

Map Drop

I wanted to recreate the Flickr's feature to drop photos on a map to geolocalize them. Like this: So, hacking on a MapBox canvas, I obtained that: Here we have a <div id="map"> used to instance the MapBox map many <div class="thumb">, each containing the img to geolocalize a few CSS and JS The important part of CSS is the "overlay modal" effect generated around the dragged image when over the map, obtained with a little padding, a blank background, and the evergreen trick…

SAMLStorm

SandStorm is a cool solution to host simple web services and let users use them easily. It can be installed with a few commands, but still has an issue that bothered me: it is not possible to have a publicly accessible instance, as all of the involved login methods imply some kind of explicit authorization or explicit invitation from the administrator. The only viable way I've found to publish a public SandStorm instance has been to setup a SAML Identity Provider, implement there new users' registration flow, and activate that…
