You can leverage the following services:
- WebSEAL Single Signon (SSO) for authentication
- Protected Object Space and Access Control List Management for authorization
- Global Sign-on (GSO) lockbox credential vault integration
- Automatic user provisioning from Lotus Quickr self-registration to Tivoli Access Manager
