## Overview

31
32
33
34
This module installs and configures [FreeRADIUS](http://freeradius.org/) server
on Linux. This module was written for use with FreeRADIUS 2.x and has not been
tested with FreeRADIUS 3.x. It was designed with CentOS in mind but should
work on other distributions.
35
36
37

## Module Description

38
39
40
41
42
43
This module installs FreeRADIUS from a distro-provided package and installs a
number of customised config files to enable flexibility. It then provides some
helpers to allow you to easily configure virtual servers (sites), modules, clients
and other config items. Most of these items accept a flat config file which you
supply either as a static file or a template - similar to the `source` and `content`
parameters in Puppet's `file` resource.
44

45
46
47
This module is designed to make it more straightforward for RADIUS administrators to
deploy RADIUS servers using Puppet. This module does not serve as a wizard and does
not avoid having to have an understanding of FreeRADIUS.

50
## Usage
51

52
This module provides several classes and defined types which take parameters.
53

54
### Classes
55

56
#### `freeradius`
57

58
59
The `freeradius` class installs the base server. In the early releases, this class does not
have many parameters as most values are hard-coded. I am working on parameterising more
60
61
of the global settings to increase flexibility. Patches are welcome.

62
##### `control_socket`
63
Enable the `control-socket` virtual server. See also the `radmin` program. Default: `false`
64
65
66
67
68
69
70
71

##### `max_requests`
The maximum number of requests which the server keeps track of. This should be 256 multiplied by the number of clients. Default: `4096`

##### `max_servers`
Limit on the total number of servers running. Default: `4096`

##### `mysql_support`
72
Install support for MySQL. Note this only installs the package. Use `freeradius::sql` to configure SQL support. Default: `false`
73
74
75
76
77
78
79
80
81
82

##### `perl_support`
Install support for Perl. Default: `false`

##### `utils_support`
Install FreeRADIUS utils. Default: `false`

##### `ldap_support`
Install support for LDAP. Default: `false`

83
##### `wpa_supplicant`
84
85
Install wpa_supplicant utility. Default: `false`

86
##### `winbind_support`
87
Add the radius user to the winbind privileged group. You must install winbind separately. Default: `false`.
88

89
90
##### `syslog`
Add a syslog rule (using the `jgazeley/syslog` module). Default: `false`.

128
129
#### `freeradius::status_server`

The `freeradius::status_server` class installs support for the [status server](http://wiki.freeradius.org/config/Status).

##### `secret`
The shared secret for the status server. Required.

##### `port`
The port to listen for status requests on. Default: `18121`

##### `listen`
The address to listen on. Defaults to listen on all addresses but you could set this to `$::ipaddress` or `127.0.0.1`.  Default: `*`

##### `enable`
Whether to enable the status server. Default: `true`

```puppet
  # Enable status server
  class { 'freeradius::status_server':
    port   => '18120',
    secret => 't0pSecret!',
  }
```

130
131
132
133
134
135
136
137
#### `freeradius::control_socket`

The `freeradius::control_socket` class enables the control socket which can be used with [RADMIN](http://freeradius.org/radiusd/man/radmin.html).
To remove the control socket, do not include this class and the socket will be removed.

##### `mode`
Whether the control socket should be read-only or read-write. Choose from `ro`, `rw`. Default: `ro`.

138
### Resources
139

140
#### `freeradius::attr`
141

Jonathan Gazeley's avatar

142
Install arbitrary attribute filters from a flat file. These are installed in `/etc/raddb/attr.d`

162
163
164
165
166
167
#### `freeradius::blank`

Selectively blank certain stock config files that aren't required. This is preferable to deleting them
because the package manager will replace certain files next time the package is upgraded, potentially
causing unexpected behaviour.

The resource title should be the relative path from the FreeRADIUS config directory to the file(s) you
want to blank. You can pass multiple files in an array.

```puppet
freeradius::blank { 'sites-enabled/default': }

freeradius::blank { [
  'sites-enabled/default',
  'eap.conf',
]: }
```

168
169
#### `freeradius::cert`

170
Install certificates as provided. These are installed in `/etc/raddb/certs`. Beware that any certificates *not* deployed by Puppet will be purged from this directory.
171
172
173
174
175
176
177
178

```puppet
freeradius::cert { 'mycert.pem':
  source => 'puppet:///modules/site_freeradius/mycert.pem',
  type   => 'key',
}
```

179
180
181
182
183
184
185
```puppet
freeradius::cert { 'mycert.pem':
  content => '<your key/cert content here>',
  type    => 'key',
}
```

186
187
188
189
##### `type`

Set file permissions on the installed certificate differently depending on whether this is a private key or a public certificate. Note that the default is to treat the file as a private key and remove world-readable privileges. Allowable values: `cert`, `key`. Default: `key`.

190
191
192
193
#### `freeradius::client`

Define RADIUS clients as seen in `clients.conf`

194
```puppet

195
196
freeradius::client { "wlan-controller01":
  ip        => '192.168.0.1',
197
  secret    => 'testing123',
Jonathan Gazeley's avatar

198
  shortname => 'wlc01',
199
  nastype   => 'other',
Jonathan Gazeley's avatar

200
201
202
  port      => '1645-1646',
  firewall  => true,
}
203
204
```

205
##### `ip`
206
The IP address of the client.  For IPv6, use `ipv6addr`. `ip` and `ip6` are mutually exclusive but one must be supplied. Default: `undef`.
207
208

##### `ip6`
209
The IPv6 address of the client. `ip` and `ip6` are mutually exclusive but one must be supplied. Default: `undef`.
210
211

##### `shortname`
212
A short alias that is used in place of the IP address or fully qualified hostname provided in the first line of the section. Required.
213
214

##### `secret`
215
The RADIUS shared secret used for communication between the client/NAS and the RADIUS server. Required.
216
217

##### `virtual_server`
218
The virtual server that traffic from this client should be sent to. Default: `undef`.
219
220

##### `nastype`
221
The `nastype` attribute is used to tell the `checkrad.pl` script which NAS-specific method it should use when checking simultaneous use. See [`man clients.conf`](http://freeradius.org/radiusd/man/clients.conf.txt) for a list of all options. Default: `undef`.
222
223

##### `netmask`
224
The netmask of the client, specified as an integer, e.g. `24`. Default: `undef`.
225
226

##### `port`
Jonathan Gazeley's avatar
Jonathan Gazeley committed
227
The UDP port that this virtual server should listen on. Leave blank if this client is not tied to a virtual server. Currently the port number is only used to create firewall exceptions and you only need to specify it if you set `firewall => true`. Use port range syntax as in [`puppetlabs-firewall`](https://forge.puppetlabs.com/puppetlabs/firewall). Default: `undef`.
228

229
230
##### `firewall`
Create a firewall exception for this virtual server. If this is set to `true`, you must also supply `port` and either `ip` or `ip6`. Default: `false`.
231
232
233
234
235

#### `freeradius::config`

Install arbitrary config snippets from a flat file. These are installed in `/etc/raddb/conf.d`

236
```puppet
237
238
239
240
241
freeradius::config { 'realm-checks.conf':

}
```

242
243
244
245
246
247
```puppet
freeradius::config { 'realm-checks.conf':
  content => template('your_template),
}
```

248
249
250
251
252
253
254
255
256
257
#### `freeradius::dictionary`

Install custom dictionaries without breaking the default FreeRADIUS dictionary. Custom dictionaries are installed in `/etc/raddb/dictionary.d` and automatically included in the global dictionary.

```puppet
freeradius::dictionary { 'mydict':
  source => 'puppet:///modules/site_freeradius/dictionary.mydict',
}
```

258
259
#### `freeradius::instantiate`

Jonathan Gazeley's avatar

293
294
295
296
freeradius::policy { 'my-policies':
  source => 'puppet:///modules/site_freeradius/my-policies',
}
```

#### `freeradius::script`

Install a helper script, e.g. which might be called upon by a virtual server. These are
placed in `/etc/raddb/scripts` and are not automatically included by the server.

297

}
```

303
304
#### `freeradius::site`

Jonathan Gazeley's avatar
Jonathan Gazeley committed
305
Install a virtual server (a.k.a. site) from a flat file. Sites are installed directly
306
307
into `/etc/raddb/sites-enabled`. Any files in this directory that are *not* managed by
Puppet will be removed.
308

309
```puppet
310
311
312
313
314
freeradius::site { 'inner-tunnel':
  source => 'puppet:///modules/site_freeradius/inner-tunnel',
}
```

315
316
317
318
319
320
#### `freeradius::sql`

Configure SQL connections. You can define multiple database connections by
invoking this resource multiple times. If you are using MySQL, don't forget to
also set `mysql_support => true` in the base `freeradius` class.

321
322
323
324
325
326
327
328
329
330
```puppet
freeradius::sql { 'mydatabase':
  database  => 'mysql',
  server    => '192.168.0.1',
  login     => 'radius',
  password  => 'topsecret',
  radius_db => 'radius',
}
```

331
332
333
334
335
336
337
338
##### `database`

Default: `undef`. Required. Specify which FreeRADIUS database driver to use. Choose one of `mysql`, `mssql`, `oracle`, `postgresql`

##### `server`

Default: `localhost`. Specify hostname of IP address of the database server.

339
340
341
342
##### `port`

TCP port to connect to the database. Default: `3306`.

343
344
345
346
347
348
349
350
351
352
353
354
355
##### `login`

Default: `radius`. Username to connect to the databae.

##### `password`

Default: `undef`. Required. Password to connect to the database.

##### `radius_db`

Default: `radius`. Name of the database. Normally you should leave this alone. If you are using Oracle then use this instead:
`(DESCRIPTION=(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(HOST=localhost)(PORT=1521))(CONNECT_DATA=(SID=your_sid)))`.

356
357
358
359
360
361
362
363
##### `num_sql_socks`

Default: same as `max_servers`. Number of sql connections to make to the database server. 
Setting this to LESS than the number of threads means that some threads may starve, and
you will see errors like "No connections available and at max connection limit". Setting
this to MORE than the number of threads means that there are more connections than necessary.
Leave blank to set it to the same value as the number of threads.

364
365
366
367
368
369
370
371
372
373
##### `lifetime`

Default: `0`. Lifetime of an SQL socket. If you are having network issues such as TCP sessions expiring, you may need to set the socket
lifetime. If set to non-zero, any open connections will be closed `$lifetime` seconds after they were first opened.

##### `max_queries`

Default: `0`. Maximum number of queries used by an SQL socket. If you are having issues with SQL sockets lasting "too long", you can
limit the number of queries performed over one socket. After `$max_qeuries`, the socket will be closed. Use 0 for "no limit".

374
375
376
377
378
379
380
381
382
383
##### `query_file`

Default: `sql/${database}/dialup.conf`. Relative path to the file which contains your SQL queries. By
default, points to the `dialup.conf` specific to your database engine, so leave this blank if you are
using stock queries.

If you need to use custom queries, it is recommended that you deploy your query file using
`freeradius::script` to install the file into `/etc/raddb/scripts/custom_dialup.conf` and then
set `query_file` to `scripts/custom_dialup.conf`.

##### `acct_table1`

If you want both stop and start records logged to the same SQL table, leave this as is.  If you want them in
different tables, put the start table in `$acct_table1` and stop table in `$acct_table2`. Default : `radacct`

##### `acct_table2`

If you want both stop and start records logged to the same SQL table, leave this as is.  If you want them in
different tables, put the start table in `$acct_table1` and stop table in `$acct_table2`. Default : `radacct`

##### `postauth_table`

Table for storing data after authentication

##### `authcheck_table`

##### `groupreply_table`

Default: `radgroupreply`

##### `usergroup_table`

Table to keep group info. Default: `radusergroup`

##### `read_groups`

If set to `yes` (default) we read the group tables. If set to `no` the user MUST have `Fall-Through = Yes`
in the radreply table. Default: `yes`.

##### `deletestalesessions`

Remove stale session if checkrad does not see a double login. Default: `yes`.

##### `sqltrace`

Print all SQL statements when in debug mode (-x). Default: `no`.

##### `sqltracefile`

Location for SQL statements to be stored if `$sqltrace = yes`. Default:
`${logdir}/sqltrace.sql`

##### `connect_failure_retry_delay`

Number of seconds to dely retrying on a failed database connection (per socket). Default: `60`.

##### `nas_table`

Table to keep radius client info. Default: `nas`.

#### `readclients`

Set to `yes` to read radius clients from the database (`$nas_table`) Clients will ONLY be read on server startup. For performance
and security reasons, finding clients via SQL queries CANNOT be done "live" while the server is running. Default: `no`.
448

449
450
451
452
453
#### `freeradius::statusclient`

Define RADIUS clients, specifically to connect to the status server for monitoring.
Very similar usage to `freeradius::client` but with fewer options.

## Limitations

472
This module is targeted at FreeRADIUS 2.x running on CentOS 6. It has not been tested
473
474
on other distributions, but might work. Likely sticking points with other distros are
the names of packages, services and file paths.
475

476
477
478
479
480
481
This module has not been tested on FreeRADIUS 3.x and almost certainly won't work
without modification. FreeRADIUS 3.x support in this module will come onto the roadmap
at the same time that my employer decides to start looking FreeRADIUS 3.x.

This module was written for use with Puppet 3.6 and 3.7, but should be quite agnostic
to new versions of Puppet.
482
483
484

## Development

485
486
487
488
This module was written primarily for internal use - features we haven't needed to
use probably haven't been written. Please send pull requests with new features and
bug fixes. You are also welcome to file issues but I make no guarantees of
development effort if the features aren't useful to my employer.
