Weblogic Accepts Unsigned SAML Assertions

(Doc ID 1544281.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 05, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Weblogic Server - Version 10.3 to 12.1.1.0
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

From an external resource SAML tokens are being generated, which are then signed and sent to a webservice ( Service Provider) which is on WLS 10.3.6

- SAML tokens are consumed and mapped to virtual users
- SAML tokens with invalid signatures are denied
- SAML tokens signed by untrusted signers are denied


However, unsigned SAML tokens are accepted – this is not desired behavior
