## Overview

28
29
30
31
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.
32
33
34

## Module Description

35
36
37
38
39
40
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.
41

42
43
44
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.

47
## Usage
48

49
This module provides several classes and defined types which take parameters.
50

51
### Classes
52

53
#### `freeradius`
54

55
56
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
57
58
of the global settings to increase flexibility. Patches are welcome.

59
##### `control_socket`
60
Enable the `control-socket` virtual server. See also the `radmin` program. Default: `false`
61
62
63
64
65
66
67
68

##### `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`
69
Install support for MySQL. Note this only installs the package. Use `freeradius::sql` to configure SQL support. Default: `false`
70
71
72
73
74
75
76
77
78
79

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

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

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

80
##### `wpa_supplicant`
81
82
Install wpa_supplicant utility. Default: `false`

83
##### `winbind_support`
84
Add the radius user to the winbind privileged group. You must install winbind separately. Default: `false`.
85

86
87
##### `syslog`
Add a syslog rule (using the `jgazeley/syslog` module). Default: `false`.

#### `freeradius::cert`

Install certificates as provided. These are installed in `/etc/raddb/certs`

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

##### `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`.

130
131
132
133
#### `freeradius::client`

Define RADIUS clients as seen in `clients.conf`

135
136
freeradius::client { "wlan-controller01":
  ip        => '192.168.0.1',
137
  secret    => 'testing123',
Jonathan Gazeley's avatar

138
  shortname => 'wlc01',
139
  nastype   => 'other',
Jonathan Gazeley's avatar

140
141
142
  port      => '1645-1646',
  firewall  => true,
}
143
144
```

145
##### `ip`
146
The IP address of the client.  For IPv6, use `ipv6addr`. `ip` and `ip6` are mutually exclusive but one must be supplied. Default: `undef`.
147
148

##### `ip6`
149
The IPv6 address of the client. `ip` and `ip6` are mutually exclusive but one must be supplied. Default: `undef`.
150
151

##### `shortname`
152
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.
153
154

##### `secret`
155
The RADIUS shared secret used for communication between the client/NAS and the RADIUS server. Required.
156
157

##### `virtual_server`
158
The virtual server that traffic from this client should be sent to. Default: `undef`.
159
160

##### `nastype`
161
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`.
162
163

##### `netmask`
164
The netmask of the client, specified as an integer, e.g. `24`. Default: `undef`.
165
166

##### `port`
Jonathan Gazeley's avatar
Jonathan Gazeley committed
167
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`.
168

169
170
##### `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`.
171
172
173
174
175

#### `freeradius::config`

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

176
```puppet
177
178
179
180
181
freeradius::config { 'realm-checks.conf':
  source => 'puppet:///modules/site_freeradius/realm-checks.conf',
}
```

182
183
184
185
186
187
188
189
190
191
#### `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',
}
```

192
193
#### `freeradius::instantiate`

freeradius::module { 'buffered-sql':
  source => 'puppet:///modules/site_freeradius/buffered-sql',
}
```

#### `freeradius::policy`

Install a policy from a flat file.

214

215
216
217
218
219
220
221
222
223
224
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.

225
```puppet

226
227
228
229
230
freeradius::site { 'myperlscript.pl':

}
```

231
232
#### `freeradius::site`

Jonathan Gazeley's avatar
Jonathan Gazeley committed
233
Install a virtual server (a.k.a. site) from a flat file. Sites are installed directly
234
235
into `/etc/raddb/sites-enabled`

236
```puppet
237
238
239
240
241
freeradius::site { 'inner-tunnel':
  source => 'puppet:///modules/site_freeradius/inner-tunnel',

268
#### `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.

##### `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.

##### `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)))`.

269
270
271
272
273
274
275
276
##### `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.

277
278
279
280
281
282
283
284
285
286
```puppet
freeradius::sql { 'mydatabase':
  database  => 'mysql',
  server    => '192.168.0.1',
  login     => 'radius',
  password  => 'topsecret',
  radius_db => 'radius',
}
```

287
288
289
290
291
#### `freeradius::statusclient`

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

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

##### `secret`
required. The RADIUS shared secret used for communication between the client/NAS and the RADIUS server.

##### `port`
Default: `undef`. The UDP port that this virtual server should listen on. Leave blank if this client is not tied to a virtual server.

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

## Limitations

310
This module is targeted at FreeRADIUS 2.x running on CentOS 6. It has not been tested
311
312
on other distributions, but might work. Likely sticking points with other distros are
the names of packages, services and file paths.
313

314
315
316
317
318
319
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.
320
321
322

## Development

323
324
325
326
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.
