Subject [jira] [Created] (CXF-5278) STS Renew returns incorrect lifetime
Date Thu, 12 Sep 2013 19:33:51 GMT
Ethan Wallwork created CXF-5278:

             Summary: STS Renew returns incorrect lifetime
                 Key: CXF-5278
             Project: CXF
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: STS
    Affects Versions: 2.7.6
            Reporter: Ethan Wallwork

SAMLTokenRenewer#renewToken sets the lifetime attribute of the TokenRenwerResponse to the
difference between the NotBefore and NotOnOrAfter attributes of the SAML assertion conditions.
 Later the TokenRenewOperation#createREsponse method creates a Lifetime using the current
timestamp as the Created value and the current timestamp plus the previously calculated difference
as the Expires.

In cases where the NotBefore of the SAML assertion conditions is not the current time this
results in an incorrect lifetime in the response from the renew operation.  For example, if
the NotBefore is a few minutes in the past to work around systems with clock differences then
the lifetime in the response will claim the token expires a few minutes before it actually

This seems to cause issues with caching of tokens on the client side (STSClient) as the token
will be cached for a period shorter than it should be.
