System Preparation

Turn off SELinux

There are currently no SELinux policies for Moonshot, and SELinux must be run in Permissive mode.

For CentOS SELinux information please refer to the CentOS documentation:

Network configuration

For production deployments, it is recommended that the machine be assigned a static IP address.

For CentOS networking information please refer to the CentOS documentation:

Firewall configuration

The following ports are required to be accessible to the outside world in the local firewall:

  • 2083/tcp (for RadSec connections to other Moonshot entities, including the RP proxy).

Add the required repositories

Moonshot requires three yum repositories to be added to the system - EPEL and the Shibboleth repositories (home of some required dependencies), and the Moonshot repository itself.

  1. Install EPEL by running the following command:

    Code Block
    $ yum install epel-release

    Depending on your platform, the epel-release package is part of one of the optional repositories. On CentOS, it is part of the Extras repository. On RHEL, you must enable both the Optional and Extras repositories. For more information, visit the EPEL homepage.

  2. Install the official Shibboleth repository:

    Code Block
    $ wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/shibboleth.repo
  3. Install the Moonshot repository by creating a new file at /etc/yum.repos.d/moonshot.repo with the following content:

    Code Block
  4. Install the Moonshot GPG key:

    Code Block
    $ wget -O /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/Moonshot

Install Moonshot

We are now ready to install the Moonshot software and its required dependencies. Install the software by running the following command:

Code Block
$ yum install moonshot-gss-eap --disablerepo=security_shibboleth

Next Steps

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.

Configure your Application/Service to use Moonshot

Finally, you may have to install/configure that application/service as necessary.
