First, there are a few Ubuntu configuration options that need to be set in advance.
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):
$ echo "deb http://repository.project-moonshot.org/debian-moonshot wheezy main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/moonshot.list
Install the Moonshot GPG key:
$ wget -O - http://repository.project-moonshot.org/key.gpg | apt-key add -
Add the Moonshot Daily PPA Raring repository to your system. To do this, run the following command (as root, or using sudo):
$ echo "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/moonshot/daily/ubuntu raring main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/moonshot-daily.list
Install the Moonshot daily key:
$ apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys B18F7887
Update the apt cache with the new repository information:
$ apt-get update
Since we've added the Debian and Ubuntu Moonshot repositories, we must tell apt that the Ubuntu repository has precedence.
Create a file called
/etc/apt/preferences.d/moonshot, with the following content:
Pin: release o=LP-PPA-moonshot-daily
Install Older Packages
Ubuntu 14.04 LTS ships with some some versions of packages that are too new to work with the Ubuntu 13.04 packages that we're temporarily using on 14.04 LTS. So, we need to install the older versions alongside the newer.
- Download the following two packages:
- (64 bit) http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/x/xml-security-c/libxml-security-c16_1.6.1-7~build0.13.04.1_amd64.deb
- (32 bit) http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/x/xml-security-c/libxml-security-c16_1.6.1-7~build0.13.04.1_i386.deb
- (64 bit) http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/x/xerces-c/libxerces-c3.1_3.1.1-3_amd64.deb
- (32 bit) http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/x/xerces-c/libxerces-c3.1_3.1.1-3_i386.deb
$ dpkg -i libxml-security-c16_1.6.1-7~build0.13.04.1_*.deb libxerces-c3.1_3.1.1-3_*.deb
You will receive several errors about dependencies. Install the dependencies:
$ apt-get install -f
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:
# Sample mechanism glue configuration for EAP GSS mechanism.
# Any encryption type supported by Kerberos can be defined as the
# last element of the OID arc.
eap-aes128 22.214.171.124.126.96.36.199.1.17 mech_eap.so
eap-aes256 188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206.1.18 mech_eap.so
In the future we hope for this step to be done automatically on installing the software. For now, however, this is a manual step.
Install the Moonshot Client libraries
We’re now ready to install the Moonshot software and its required dependencies. Install the software by running the following command:
$ apt-get install moonshot-gss-eap moonshot-ui
At this point, you now have all of the required Moonshot software on your device, including the Moonshot Identity Selector. Depending on what client application you are using and wish to enable Moonshot authentication for, you job may now be done, or you may need to go and install a Moonshot compatible version of the client software or configure your existing client. Check the section on client compatibility if you are unsure.
