Module to install/manage simpleid. Currently installs Apache+PHP for using puppetlabs-apache.

##Module Description

Module to install/manage simpleid. Currently installs Apache+PHP for using puppetlabs-apache.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This module currently sets up Apache to serve the password login page via HTTPS, then the actual authentication over HTTP, as OpenID does not support self-signed certs. If you want a more secure setup or your own certs, please set $manage_apache to false and set up your own webserver config.

Currently supported:


Future support:

RHEL 5 Debian 6 and 7 Ubuntu 12.04


###What [eshamow-simpleid] affects

  • By default, downloads simpleid package
  • Uses nanliu-staging to expand this archive into a parameterized path
  • Drops conf files in Apache fragments dir and can generate identity files under simpleid/identities directory

###Setup Requirements

  • Expects puppetlabs-apache and nanliu-staging
  • Nothing about this other than convention makes it Apache-only - would be easy to put in conditionals/support/templates for other webservers

###Beginning with [eshamow-simpleid]

Classify node with simpleid
