Secure your API used an API connector in Azure AD B2C

When integrating a REST API within an Azure AD B2C user flow, you must protect your REST API endpoint with authentication. The REST API authentication ensures that only services that have proper credentials, such as Azure AD B2C, can make calls to your endpoint. This article will explore how to secure REST API.

Prerequisites

Complete the steps in the Walkthrough: Add an API connector to a sign-up user flow guide.

You can protect your API endpoint by using either HTTP basic authentication or HTTPS client certificate authentication. In either case, you provide the credentials that Azure AD B2C will use when calling your API endpoint. Your API endpoint then checks the credentials and performs authorization decisions.

HTTP basic authentication

HTTP basic authentication is defined in RFC 2617. Basic authentication works as follows: Azure AD B2C sends an HTTP request with the client credentials (username and password) in the Authorization header. The credentials are formatted as the base64-encoded string username:password. Your API then is responsible for checking these values to perform other authorization decisions.

To configure an API Connector with HTTP basic authentication, follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to the Azure portal.
  2. Under Azure services, select Azure AD B2C or search for and select Azure AD B2C.
  3. Select API connectors, and then select the API Connector you want to configure.
  4. For the Authentication type, select Basic.
  5. Provide the Username, and Password of your REST API endpoint. Providing basic authentication configuration for an API connector.
  6. Select Save.

Add REST API username and password policy keys

To configure a REST API technical profile with HTTP basic authentication, create the following cryptographic keys to store the username and password:

  1. Sign in to the Azure portal.
  2. Make sure you're using the directory that contains your Azure AD B2C tenant. Select the Directories + subscriptions icon in the portal toolbar.
  3. On the Portal settings | Directories + subscriptions page, find your Azure AD B2C directory in the Directory name list, and then select Switch.
  4. Choose All services in the top-left corner of the Azure portal, and then search for and select Azure AD B2C.
  5. On the Overview page, select Identity Experience Framework.
  6. Select Policy Keys, and then select Add.
  7. For Options, select Manual.
  8. For Name, type RestApiUsername. The prefix B2C_1A_ might be added automatically.
  9. In the Secret box, enter the REST API username.
  10. For Key usage, select Encryption.
  11. Select Create.
  12. Select Policy Keys again.
  13. Select Add.
  14. For Options, select Manual.
  15. For Name, type RestApiPassword. The prefix B2C_1A_ might be added automatically.
  16. In the Secret box, enter the REST API password.
  17. For Key usage, select Encryption.
  18. Select Create.

Configure your REST API technical profile to use HTTP basic authentication

After creating the necessary keys, configure your REST API technical profile metadata to reference the credentials.

  1. In your working directory, open the extension policy file (TrustFrameworkExtensions.xml).
  2. Search for the REST API technical profile. For example REST-ValidateProfile, or REST-GetProfile.
  3. Locate the <Metadata> element.
  4. Change the AuthenticationType to Basic.
  5. Change the AllowInsecureAuthInProduction to false.
  6. Immediately after the closing </Metadata> element, add the following XML snippet:
    <CryptographicKeys>
        <Key Id="BasicAuthenticationUsername" StorageReferenceId="B2C_1A_RestApiUsername" />
        <Key Id="BasicAuthenticationPassword" StorageReferenceId="B2C_1A_RestApiPassword" />
    </CryptographicKeys>
    

The following XML snippet is an example of a RESTful technical profile configured with HTTP basic authentication:

<ClaimsProvider>
  <DisplayName>REST APIs</DisplayName>
  <TechnicalProfiles>
    <TechnicalProfile Id="REST-GetProfile">
      <DisplayName>Get user extended profile Azure Function web hook</DisplayName>
      <Protocol Name="Proprietary" Handler="Web.TPEngine.Providers.RestfulProvider, Web.TPEngine, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null" />
      <Metadata>
        <Item Key="ServiceUrl">https://your-account.azurewebsites.net/api/GetProfile?code=your-code</Item>
        <Item Key="SendClaimsIn">Body</Item>
        <Item Key="AuthenticationType">Basic</Item>
        <Item Key="AllowInsecureAuthInProduction">false</Item>
      </Metadata>
      <CryptographicKeys>
        <Key Id="BasicAuthenticationUsername" StorageReferenceId="B2C_1A_RestApiUsername" />
        <Key Id="BasicAuthenticationPassword" StorageReferenceId="B2C_1A_RestApiPassword" />
      </CryptographicKeys>
      ...
    </TechnicalProfile>
  </TechnicalProfiles>
</ClaimsProvider>

HTTPS client certificate authentication

Client certificate authentication is a mutual certificate-based authentication, where the client, Azure AD B2C, provides its client certificate to the server to prove its identity. This happens as a part of the SSL handshake. Your API is responsible for validating the certificates belong to a valid client, such as Azure AD B2C, and performing authorization decisions. The client certificate is an X.509 digital certificate.

Important

In production environments, the certificate must be signed by a certificate authority.

Create a certificate

To create a certificate, you can use Azure Key Vault, which has options for self-signed certificates and integrations with certificate issuer providers for signed certificates. Recommended settings include:

  • Subject: CN=<yourapiname>.<tenantname>.onmicrosoft.com
  • Content Type: PKCS #12
  • Lifetime Acton Type: Email all contacts at a given percentage lifetime or Email all contacts a given number of days before expiry
  • Key Type: RSA
  • Key Size: 2048
  • Exportable Private Key: Yes (in order to be able to export .pfx file)

You can then export the certificate.

Option 2: prepare a self-signed certificate using PowerShell module

If you don't already have a certificate, you can use a self-signed certificate. A self-signed certificate is a security certificate that is not signed by a certificate authority (CA) and doesn't provide the security guarantees of a certificate signed by a CA.

On Windows, use the New-SelfSignedCertificate cmdlet in PowerShell to generate a certificate.

  1. Run the following PowerShell command to generate a self-signed certificate. Modify the -Subject argument as appropriate for your application and Azure AD B2C tenant name such as contosowebapp.contoso.onmicrosoft.com. You can also adjust the -NotAfter date to specify a different expiration for the certificate.

    New-SelfSignedCertificate `
        -KeyExportPolicy Exportable `
        -Subject "CN=yourappname.yourtenant.onmicrosoft.com" `
        -KeyAlgorithm RSA `
        -KeyLength 2048 `
        -KeyUsage DigitalSignature `
        -NotAfter (Get-Date).AddMonths(12) `
        -CertStoreLocation "Cert:\CurrentUser\My"
    
  2. On Windows computer, search for and select Manage user certificates

  3. Under Certificates - Current User, select Personal > Certificates>yourappname.yourtenant.onmicrosoft.com.

  4. Select the certificate, and then select Action > All Tasks > Export.

  5. Select Next > Yes, export the private key > Next.

  6. Accept the defaults for Export File Format, and then select Next.

  7. Enable Password option, enter a password for the certificate, and then select Next.

  8. To specify a location to save your certificate, select Browse and navigate to a directory of your choice.

  9. On the Save As window, enter a File name, and then select Save.

  10. Select Next>Finish.

For Azure AD B2C to accept the .pfx file password, the password must be encrypted with the TripleDES-SHA1 option in the Windows Certificate Store Export utility, as opposed to AES256-SHA256.

Configure your API Connector

To configure an API Connector with client certificate authentication, follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to the Azure portal.
  2. Under Azure services, select Azure AD B2C.
  3. Select API connectors, and then select the API Connector you want to configure.
  4. For the Authentication type, select Certificate.
  5. In the Upload certificate box, select your certificate's .pfx file with a private key.
  6. In the Enter Password box, type the certificate's password. Providing certificate authentication configuration for an API connector.
  7. Select Save.

Perform authorization decisions

Your API must implement the authorization based on sent client certificates in order to protect the API endpoints. For Azure App Service and Azure Functions, see configure TLS mutual authentication to learn how to enable and validate the certificate from your API code. You can alternatively use Azure API Management as a layer in front of any API service to check client certificate properties against desired values.

Renewing certificates

It's recommended you set reminder alerts for when your certificate will expire. You will need to generate a new certificate and repeat the steps above when used certificates are about to expire. To "roll" the use of a new certificate, your API service can continue to accept old and new certificates for a temporary amount of time while the new certificate is deployed.

To upload a new certificate to an existing API connector, select the API connector under API connectors and click on Upload new certificate. The most recently uploaded certificate which is not expired and whose start date has passed will automatically be used by Azure AD B2C.

Providing a new certificate to an API connector when one already exists.

Add a client certificate policy key

  1. Sign in to the Azure portal.
  2. Make sure you're using the directory that contains your Azure AD B2C tenant. Select the Directories + subscriptions icon in the portal toolbar.
  3. On the Portal settings | Directories + subscriptions page, find your Azure AD B2C directory in the Directory name list, and then select Switch.
  4. Choose All services in the top-left corner of the Azure portal, and then search for and select Azure AD B2C.
  5. On the Overview page, select Identity Experience Framework.
  6. Select Policy Keys, and then select Add.
  7. In the Options box, select Upload.
  8. In the Name box, type RestApiClientCertificate. The prefix B2C_1A_ is added automatically.
  9. In the File upload box, select your certificate's .pfx file with a private key.
  10. In the Password box, type the certificate's password.
  11. Select Create.

Configure your REST API technical profile to use client certificate authentication

After creating the necessary key, configure your REST API technical profile metadata to reference the client certificate.

  1. In your working directory, open the extension policy file (TrustFrameworkExtensions.xml).
  2. Search for the REST API technical profile. For example REST-ValidateProfile, or REST-GetProfile.
  3. Locate the <Metadata> element.
  4. Change the AuthenticationType to ClientCertificate.
  5. Change the AllowInsecureAuthInProduction to false.
  6. Immediately after the closing </Metadata> element, add the following XML snippet:
    <CryptographicKeys>
       <Key Id="ClientCertificate" StorageReferenceId="B2C_1A_RestApiClientCertificate" />
    </CryptographicKeys>
    

The following XML snippet is an example of a RESTful technical profile configured with an HTTP client certificate:

<ClaimsProvider>
  <DisplayName>REST APIs</DisplayName>
  <TechnicalProfiles>
    <TechnicalProfile Id="REST-GetProfile">
      <DisplayName>Get user extended profile Azure Function web hook</DisplayName>

OAuth2 bearer authentication

Note

This feature is in public preview.

Bearer token authentication is defined in OAuth2.0 Authorization Framework: Bearer Token Usage (RFC 6750). In bearer token authentication, Azure AD B2C sends an HTTP request with a token in the authorization header.

Authorization: Bearer <token>

A bearer token is an opaque string. It can be a JWT access token or any string that the REST API expects Azure AD B2C to send in the authorization header. Azure AD B2C supports the following types:

  • Bearer token. To be able to send the bearer token in the Restful technical profile, your policy needs to first acquire the bearer token and then use it in the RESTful technical profile.
  • Static bearer token. Use this approach when your REST API issues a long-term access token. To use a static bearer token, create a policy key and make a reference from the RESTful technical profile to your policy key.

Using OAuth2 Bearer

The following steps demonstrate how to use client credentials to obtain a bearer token and pass it into the Authorization header of the REST API calls.

Define a claim to store the bearer token

A claim provides temporary storage of data during an Azure AD B2C policy execution. The claims schema is the place where you declare your claims. The access token must be stored in a claim to be used later.

  1. Open the extensions file of your policy. For example, SocialAndLocalAccounts/TrustFrameworkExtensions.xml.
  2. Search for the BuildingBlocks element. If the element doesn't exist, add it.
  3. Locate the ClaimsSchema element. If the element doesn't exist, add it.
  4. Add the following claims to the ClaimsSchema element.
<ClaimType Id="bearerToken">
  <DisplayName>Bearer token</DisplayName>
  <DataType>string</DataType>
</ClaimType>
<ClaimType Id="grant_type">
  <DisplayName>Grant type</DisplayName>
  <DataType>string</DataType>
</ClaimType>
<ClaimType Id="scope">
  <DisplayName>scope</DisplayName>
  <DataType>string</DataType>
</ClaimType>

Acquiring an access token

You can obtain an access token in one of several ways: by obtaining it from a federated identity provider, by calling a REST API that returns an access token, by using an ROPC flow, or by using the client credentials flow. The client credentials flow is commonly used for server-to-server interactions that must run in the background, without immediate interaction with a user.

Acquiring an Azure AD access token

The following example uses a REST API technical profile to make a request to the Azure AD token endpoint using the client credentials passed as HTTP basic authentication. For more information, see Microsoft identity platform and the OAuth 2.0 client credentials flow.

Before the technical profile can interact with Azure AD to obtain an access token, you need to register an application. Azure AD B2C relies the Azure AD platform. You can create the app in your Azure AD B2C tenant, or in any Azure AD tenant you manage. To register an application:

  1. Sign in to the Azure portal.
  2. Make sure you're using the directory that contains your Azure AD B2C tenant. Select the Directories + subscriptions icon in the portal toolbar.
  3. On the Portal settings | Directories + subscriptions page, find your Azure AD or Azure AD B2C directory in the Directory name list, and then select Switch.
  4. In the left menu, select Azure Active Directory. Or, select All services and search for and select Azure Active Directory.
  5. Select App registrations, and then select New registration.
  6. Enter a Name for the application. For example, Client_Credentials_Auth_app.
  7. Under Supported account types, select Accounts in this organizational directory only.
  8. Select Register.
  9. Record the Application (client) ID.

For a client credentials flow, you need to create an application secret. The client secret is also known as an application password. The secret will be used by your application to acquire an access token.

  1. In the Azure AD - App registrations page, select the application you created, for example Client_Credentials_Auth_app.
  2. In the left menu, under Manage, select Certificates & secrets.
  3. Select New client secret.
  4. Enter a description for the client secret in the Description box. For example, clientsecret1.
  5. Under Expires, select a duration for which the secret is valid, and then select Add.
  6. Record the secret's Value for use in your client application code. This secret value is never displayed again after you leave this page. You use this value as the application secret in your application's code.

Create Azure AD B2C policy keys

You need to store the client ID and the client secret that you previously recorded in your Azure AD B2C tenant.

  1. Sign in to the Azure portal.
  2. Make sure you're using the directory that contains your Azure AD B2C tenant. Select the Directories + subscriptions icon in the portal toolbar.
  3. On the Portal settings | Directories + subscriptions page, find your Azure AD B2C directory in the Directory name list, and then select Switch.
  4. Choose All services in the top-left corner of the Azure portal, and then search for and select Azure AD B2C.
  5. On the Overview page, select Identity Experience Framework.
  6. Select Policy Keys and then select Add.
  7. For Options, choose Manual.
  8. Enter a Name for the policy key, SecureRESTClientId. The prefix B2C_1A_ is added automatically to the name of your key.
  9. In Secret, enter your client ID that you previously recorded.
  10. For Key usage, select Signature.
  11. Select Create.
  12. Create another policy key with the following settings:
    • Name: SecureRESTClientSecret.
    • Secret: enter your client secret that you previously recorded

For the ServiceUrl, replace your-tenant-name with the name of your Azure AD tenant. See the RESTful technical profile reference for all options available.

<TechnicalProfile Id="REST-AcquireAccessToken">

  </CryptographicKeys>
  <InputClaims>
    <InputClaim ClaimTypeReferenceId="grant_type" DefaultValue="client_credentials" AlwaysUseDefaultValue="true" />
    <InputClaim ClaimTypeReferenceId="scope" DefaultValue="https://graph.microsoft.com/.default" AlwaysUseDefaultValue="true" />
  </InputClaims>
  <OutputClaims>
    <OutputClaim ClaimTypeReferenceId="bearerToken" PartnerClaimType="access_token" />
  </OutputClaims>
  <UseTechnicalProfileForSessionManagement ReferenceId="SM-Noop" />
</TechnicalProfile>

Note

If you use the grant_type or scope claims in other technical profiles, we recommend that they also specify DefaultValue and use AlwaysUseDefaultValue="true" to avoid potential conflicts in binding against the incorrect value.

Change the REST technical profile to use bearer token authentication

To support bearer token authentication in your custom policy, modify the REST API technical profile with the following:

  1. In your working directory, open the TrustFrameworkExtensions.xml extension policy file.

  2. Search for the <TechnicalProfile> node that includes Id="REST-API-SignUp".

  3. Locate the <Metadata> element.

  4. Change the AuthenticationType to Bearer, as follows:

    <Item Key="AuthenticationType">Bearer</Item>
    
  5. Change or add the UseClaimAsBearerToken to bearerToken, as follows. The bearerToken is the name of the claim that the bearer token will be retrieved from (the output claim from REST-AcquireAccessToken).

    <Item Key="UseClaimAsBearerToken">bearerToken</Item>
    
  6. Ensure you add the claim used above as an input claim:

    <InputClaim ClaimTypeReferenceId="bearerToken"/>
    

After you add the above snippets, your technical profile should look like the following XML code:

<ClaimsProvider>
  <DisplayName>REST APIs</DisplayName>
  <TechnicalProfiles>
    <TechnicalProfile Id="REST-GetProfile">
      <DisplayName>Get user extended profile Azure Function web hook</DisplayName>

API key authentication

Some services use an "API key" mechanism to obfuscate access to your HTTP endpoints during development by requiring the caller to include a unique key as an HTTP header or HTTP query parameter. For Azure Functions, you can accomplish this by including the code as a query parameter in the Endpoint URL of your API connector. For example, https://contoso.azurewebsites.net/api/endpoint?code=0123456789).

This is not a mechanism that should be used alone in production. Therefore, configuration for basic or certificate authentication is always required. If you do not wish to implement any authentication method (not recommended) for development purposes, you can select 'basic' authentication in the API connector configuration and use temporary values for username and password that your API can disregard while you implement proper authorization.

API key is a unique identifier used to authenticate a user to access a REST API endpoint. The key is sent in a custom HTTP header. For example, the Azure Functions HTTP trigger uses the x-functions-key HTTP header to identify the requester.

Add API key policy keys

To configure a REST API technical profile with API key authentication, create the following cryptographic key to store the API key:

  1. Sign in to the Azure portal.
  2. Make sure you're using the directory that contains your Azure AD B2C tenant. Select the Directories + subscriptions icon in the portal toolbar.
  3. On the Portal settings | Directories + subscriptions page, find your Azure AD B2C directory in the Directory name list, and then select Switch.
  4. Choose All services in the top-left corner of the Azure portal, and then search for and select Azure AD B2C.
  5. On the Overview page, select Identity Experience Framework.
  6. Select Policy Keys, and then select Add.
  7. For Options, select Manual.
  8. For Name, type RestApiKey. The prefix B2C_1A_ might be added automatically.
  9. In the Secret box, enter the REST API key.
  10. For Key usage, select Encryption.
  11. Select Create.

Configure your REST API technical profile to use API key authentication

After creating the necessary key, configure your REST API technical profile metadata to reference the credentials.

  1. In your working directory, open the extension policy file (TrustFrameworkExtensions.xml).
  2. Search for the REST API technical profile. For example REST-ValidateProfile, or REST-GetProfile.
  3. Locate the <Metadata> element.
  4. Change the AuthenticationType to ApiKeyHeader.
  5. Change the AllowInsecureAuthInProduction to false.
  6. Immediately after the closing </Metadata> element, add the following XML snippet:
    <CryptographicKeys>
        <Key Id="x-functions-key" StorageReferenceId="B2C_1A_RestApiKey" />
    </CryptographicKeys>
    

The Id of the cryptographic key defines the HTTP header. In this example, the API key is sent as x-functions-key.

The following XML snippet is an example of a RESTful technical profile configured to call an Azure Function with API key authentication:
