Although my use case for certificate based authentication is pretty basic, the existing documentation for Access Manager/OpenSSO/OpenAM is somewhat scarce and requires gathering information from various, often unrelated sources. For that reason, I have summarised the process in this article.
I prepared one more article about OpenAM, now it is about OpenAM Web Policy Agent. This article is an example how to use OpenAM to protect resources on a Web Server.
In my previous article “How to deploy OpenAM with DAUI” I wrote down steps how to install complete architecture where DAUI is configured with OpenAM. To keep it simple, I used only plain non-encrypted communication between individual components, however in the real world, many deployments require some more security and encrypted cryptography is a basic requirement. This article is based on previous one and it adds steps to install full architecture with SSL encryption.
