INC-135849 · Issue 582939

Encrypted SOAP response token generation updated

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.1

After configuring a SOAP service that used signature and encryption on the response, the response being created was incorrect and could not be decrypted by the receiver. Investigation showed that the API used to generate the SOAP headers was not setting the wsse11:TokenType element, causing receivers which enforce BSP compliance to fail. This has been resolved by modifying the custom webservices-rt-pega2 jar to set the token type in the case of a response encryption policy.

Handling added for samesite cookies with httpOnly

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.1

After enabling samesite cookies on Google Chrome to support Mashup login, intermittent issues were seen with a non-mashup login where entering the OperatorID and password only resulted in a refresh of the login screen. This was traced to a scenario where an httponly cookie attribute was present along with samesite cookie attributes, and has been resolved by adding handling for a condition where samesite is set and httpOnly is enabled.

Null checks added for the presence of roles and dependent roles

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.1

Frequent Null Pointer errors were being generated relating to SecurityAnalysisForSecurityAdministratorsTask.getCurrentSecurityTaskDetails(). Investigation showed that the Origin and Stack trace tabs were empty, leading to the obj-open of the role failing when the role was not available in the system being utilized. This has been resolved by adding a series of null checks for role existence and dependent roles existence.

Additional security for encrypted passwords

Handling and cleanup has been updated for encrypted values to enhance security.

Resolved 400 error on second browser session

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5.1

When accessing application URLs in two tabs of a browser window, logging into the second session was throwing a 400 invalid request. This has been resolved by adding specified activities to an allow list which will bypass URLObfuscation in un-authenticated mode. Non-listed activities will be processed using URLObfuscation if it is enabled.

INC-134046 · Issue 575238

database locking improved for login performance

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5

A slowness issue seen when trying to login to my.pega.com was traced to numerous database locks occurring on the pr_data_saml_authreqcontext table during the SAML flow. Analysis showed that while running Obj-Save on AuthRequestContext with 'OnlyIfNew' as false, the check caused a select query to run on the table to determine if the context was already there and insert it if it was not. To resolve this, the onlyIfNew check will default to true to avoid running the query; if the context is already present it will be overridden. Duplicate key exception handling has also been added to avoid any issues if a resave is done with same key.

CDK key loading modified for better database compatibility

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5

Users were unable to log on to the system and received the error "There has been an issue; please consult your system administrator." Investigation showed the log errors stating "(dataencryption.DataKeyProvider) ERROR localhost - Could not get CDK from systemKeyManagementCache - System CDK is null". This was an issue specific to the MS SQL Server database when there were 6 or more CDKs in the database: CDK keys are loaded from database into Cache using an SQL statement which had the ORDER clause. By default, the ORDER clause treats NULL values differently on different databases, and this caused MS SQL databases to not load a necessary CDK key. To resolve this, the SQL query has been modified so the result will be the same for all supported daatbases (Oracle, Postgres & MS SQL Server).

Resolved OAuth2 mobile app loop

Resolved in Pega Version 8.5

When a Pega OAuth2 authorize endpoint was invoked and the redirect URI contained "app", a loop was created where the system attempted to fetch the app alias from the state parameter value and was redirected back to itself. This could sometimes result in inconsistent mobile app styling. Investigation showed that a certificate with keyword app that was picked for the redirect URI could have the key word assumed to be the app alias context, so a workaround was to remove the app keyword. To resolve the issue, the system has been updated to look for the app alias only in the state parameter rather than performa a string contains check on the entire query string.
