Security and authentication are key elements in a production environment. Learn about single sign-on and the security available out of the box.
Security must always be enabled, except when configuring security.
- When you are ready to configure security for your environment, you must decide if you will use a federated LDAP directory, a database user registry, or a customer-supplied custom user registry for authentication. To plan appropriately for security configuration, read the topics in the Configuring security section before you install and configure the server.
Planning for security: qp85
This section provides an overview of information to plan security for your IBM® Lotus Quickr for WebSphere Portal environment because Lotus Quickr and IBM WebSphere® Application Server require some form of user registry.
This section describes what authentication is and the methods for login and authentication.
Single signon: qp85
Single sign-on allows you a secure method of authenticating a user one time within an environment to provide access to other applications, systems, and networks.
The HTTP Basic Authentication Trust Association Interceptor: qp85
The HTTP Basic Authentication Trust Association Interceptor (TAI) can be used to authenticate incoming requests using the HTTP Basic Authentication Protocol described in RFC 2617. This authentication can be useful for clients that are not capable of doing HTTP form based authentication.
