Jamf Connect 1.19.1 Release


Jamf Connect Configuration 1.9.0: N/A
Jamf Connect Login 1.11.3:
• [PI-008086] Fixed an issue that sometimes caused Jamf Connect Login to create an invalid keychain item for Jamf Connect Sync or Verify when Jamf Connect received user information from Jamf Pro’s Enrollment Customization settings during account creation.

• [PI-008131] Fixed an issue that allowed end users to bypass multifactor authentication (MFA), when enabled, and use local authentication, if the MFA prompt timed out.

Jamf Connect Sync 1.4.3: N/A

Jamf Connect Verify 1.5.2: (Documentation Only) The “Configuring Jamf Connect Verify” section of the admin guide now includes OneLogin and IBM Cloud Identity as configurable IdPs. Note: OneLogin and IBM Cloud Identity are not included in the Jamf Connect Verify app Preferences menu. Use Jamf Connect Configuration, Jamf Pro, or a text editor to create a configuration profile.

It seems that the /usr/local/lib/pam/pam_saml.so.2 file disappeared from this release :

Perhaps it's normal because if I copy the file from an older release of Jamf Connect Login pacakge (1.11.0), it works as expected on the Mac
But, when I'm logged into the Mac thru SSH, I can gain root access without authentication :

Last login: Mon Jun 1 15:01:22 on ttys001 The default interactive shell is now zsh. To update your account to use zsh, please run chsh -s /bin/zsh. For more details, please visit https://support.apple.com/kb/HT208050. netomac95:~ emmanuel$ ssh ladmin@ Password: Last login: Mon Jun 1 15:06:31 2020 from ladmin@MacBook-Air ~ % sudo -s root@MacBook-Air ~ # whoami root root@MacBook-Air ~ #

Here is a copy of my /etc/pam.d/sudo file on macOS 10.15.4 :

# sudo: auth account password session auth required pam_saml.so auth sufficient pam_smartcard.so # auth required pam_opendirectory.so account required pam_permit.so password required pam_deny.so session required pam_permit.so

And the result of authchanger -print :

PS : by using

auth required pam_saml.so auth required pam_opendirectory.so

in /etc/pam.d/sudo, it works as expected with SSH : the password is asked.
But you have the option to bypass IdP authentication locally on the Mac :-(.

@ecanault We have noticed this and will be releasing a new version of the Jamf Connect that fixes this problem as well as a few other problems. This release is planned for June 6.

Hi @david.engum ,

Thanks for the feedback.
This update will also address the security issue regarding the remote SSH connection ?
