Website Login Credentials

Post#1 by Andy » 12 Aug 2013, 08:35

Hi Everybody,

The Startsite on my Kiosk should be a Intranet-Site of our Company.
This Site needs Credentials do login. Is it possible to save this Credentials in Firefox in the .iso so that the Login Dialog disappears?

Thanks for the help!

Andy

Hi,

You could extract the cache from a vanilla firefox install (preferably Firefox on latest Porteus) and past it into kiosk one to let it use the cache for any new connections.

Cheers!

kiosk starts in 'private mode' by default (so personal data are not saved anywhere) so you have to change following options in 003-settings.xzm/home/guest/.mozilla/firefox/c3pp43bg.default/prefs.js:

Code: Select all

user_pref("browser.privatebrowsing.autostart", true);

Code: Select all

user_pref("signon.rememberSignons", false);
now you can add required files (like signons.sqlite - maybe something else) to 003-settings.xzm/home/guest/.mozilla/firefox/c3pp43bg.default/ folder -> recreate 003-settings.xzm module -> build new ISO.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

Great! thank you for your patience!
Now my last question. How I can get the new 003-settings.xzm into the iso? The Kiosk Wizard takes every time the old 003-settings.xzm instead of my new.

hi Anady,

for security purpose kiosk kernel supports only is09660 filesystem which read only by design so you have to:
a) unpack the ISO
b) modify files
c) create new ISO with 'make_iso.sh-org'
d) burn on usb

Login screen?! You seems to have forgotten the cookies that save the session cookie. No cookie, no session.

not sure if i follow you... do you want to autologin to this site? is it possible that you could take a screenshot of the site you want to enter and share so we would know what kind of authorization is needed (maybe cookies could help as suggested by hamza?)

do you mean a firefox config? if yes then you could run the wizard once again and enable 'file://' protocol then apply your customizations and create new ISO. i would recommend to always test in Virtualbox (faster than burning on usb, rebooting PC, etc).
once you boot kiosk just type 'file://' in the address bar and navigate to /home/guest/.mozilla/firefox/c3pp43bg.default then check prefs.js

So you need the database of logins (signon) + the cookies that are generated by this dialog box.

The Startsite on my Kiosk should be a Intranet-Site of our Company.
If i understand correctly, Andy wants the homepage to be a local site from his intranet. This will require saving database & cookie files however these are stored in the user folder which is over written every time firefox restarts.
How do i become super user?
Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.
