CA SSO Extensions
Optimize your CA Single Sign-On implementations with plugins from IDF Connect
CA SSO Extensions include the following plugins:
The Tomcat Plugin for CA Single Sign-On enables you to bring your Tomcat applications into your Single Sign-On and Authentication/Access Control solution. It directly integrates the Tomcat container with CA Single Sign-On, allowing you to define authentication and access policies in CA Single Sign-On that are enforced within Tomcat. Your application can use J2EE native security in the Tomcat container — such as isUserInRole and getUserPrincipal — and the results will be based upon the identity authenticated by CA Single Sign-On. Declarative security can also be utilized within your deployment descriptor, and whether a user meets your role definitions are determined by the CA Single Sign-On identity.
The JBoss Plugin for CA Single Sign-On enables you to easily integrate your J2EE applications into your Single Sign-On and Authentication/Access Control solution. It directly integrates the JBoss server with CA Single Sign-On, allowing you to define authentication and access policies in CA Single Sign-On that are enforced within JBoss. The JBoss plugin propagates the CA Single Sign-On identity into the JBoss web application and further into the EJB container.
Mac OS X Apache Plugin
If you have Mac OS X servers integrated into your CA Single Sign-On infrastructure, you have needed to implement additional infrastructure — such as reverse proxies — to integrate Apache HTTP Server on Mac OS X with CA Single Sign-On. This is because CA does not offer out-of-the-box functionality for a CA Single Sign-On Plugin on Mac OS X server.
With the ID Foundry Mac OS X Apache Plugin, you won’t need to deploy additional hardware and software to integrate your Mac OS X server in your CA Single Sign-On infrastructure. ID Foundry’s Mac OS X Apache Plugin easily installs directly onto your Mac OS X servers to provide SSO with CA Single Sign-On
Advanced Desktop Integration
Advanced Desktop Integration for CA Single Sign-On extends the capabilities of Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA) beyond a pure Windows environment — providing a seamless fallback from IWA to custom forms-based authentication for CA Single Sign-On-protected applications.
