Assumptions and Prerequisites
This guide assumes you have an up-to-date Ubuntu 12.04 LTS based system (a minimal install will do) and that you have a Moonshot RP Proxy (this could be a Moonshot IdP) available to connect to.
Assumptions & Prerequisites
This guide assumes you have root access to the Linux device. This is required as new software needs to be installed system-wide.
1. System Preparation
First, there are a few Ubuntu configuration options that need to be set in advance.
1.1. Add the Moonshot Repository
Add the Moonshot Debian Wheezy repository to your system. To do this, run the following command (as root, or using sudo):
Install the Moonshot GPG key:
Update the apt cache with the new repository information:
1.2. Install updated font-config packages
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS ships with versions of fontconfig-config and libfontconfig that are a little too old for Moonshot. We need to update these packages with newer versions.
- Download the following two packages:
1.3. Moonshot GSS Mechanisms
Create a new file at
/usr/etc/gss/mech (you will likely need to create the
/usr/etc/gss directory) with the following content:
In the future we hope for this step to be done automatically on installing the software. For now, however, this is a manual step.
2. Install Moonshot
We’re now ready to install the Moonshot software and its required dependencies. Install the software by running the following command:
3. Next Steps
3.1. Configure your Moonshot Libraries to connect to an RP Proxy
The Moonshot GSS-EAP mechanism needs to connect to a local Moonshot RP Proxy (RADIUS server) via RADIUS or RadSec in order to create the first hop between the service and the user's home IdP to allow authentication to happen. See the Configure a Linux Server to Connect to an RP Proxy page for instructions on how to do this.
3.2. Configure your Application/Service to use Moonshot
Finally, you may have to install/configure that application/service as necessary.
