I am using Shibboleth for single user authentication and it needs a ssl configuration which facilitates the user authentication process. Before it was working fine but now I am facing a SSL handshake failure error and the secure connection is being ignored. Here is the detailed error message on browser(firefox) screen:

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.mydomain.com.

SSL peer was unable to negotiate an acceptable set of security parameters.

(Error code: ssl_error_handshake_failure_alert)

Steps to see the error live: : Goto this page > click on Login > then click on "Identification par carte d'identité électronique." > error message (the login is secured by shibbolet)

Note: I have done all the browser setting , even installed latest browser.There is problem with ssl config I believe and I have synced the clock but its not helpful.

To me it seems a synchronization problem (maybe a timezone configuration problem) between the IdP and the gateway. You error log state explicitly that a message was delivered late, go check if the <Conditions NotBefore="2012-09-20T13:10:43.494Z" NotOnOrAfter="2012-09-20T13:15:43.494Z"> and the timestamps in the logs does correspond. –  guido Sep 23 '12 at 3:15
    
If timestamp in the log does not match then how to fix it ? –  Subhransu Sep 23 '12 at 6:57

you seem to be in timezone GMT+2; try setting message validity from 5 minutes to 2 hours and 5 minutes. If that fixes the problem, confirms it's a synchronization problem. (this is not a fix, you we'll need to solve the problem in an other way, it's just a way to prove what the problem is) –  guido Sep 23 '12 at 7:36
    
security.stackexchange.com/questions/20449/… anyway, you should not crosspost –  guido Sep 23 '12 at 7:42
    
I am sorry for crosspost. But could you tell me how to "set message validity". –  Subhransu Sep 24 '12 at 18:07

1 Answer 1

Based on what I see, it looks like the SSL certificates for both domains have good certificate chains.

Try testing using CURL:

curl -d "testing[ssl]=Test" https://inami-riziv.dokeosnet.com/Shibboleth.sso/SAML/POST

I get a page, so the SSL connection looks fine to me.

Since you're using Single Sign-on, check that all IP's use an SSL certificate - specifically the primary IP's of the servers.

How to confirm that all IP use SSL certificate ? –  Subhransu Sep 22 '12 at 7:10
    
The problem will usually be with the primary IP address, so you can browse to the IP or use an SSL tester. –  taco Sep 24 '12 at 21:48
    
The certificate is ok, I believe I need to change the "message validity". But how to do that ? –  Subhransu Sep 25 '12 at 9:22
