OAuth 2.0 Tutorial 5: Leverage a CA SiteMinder Session in an OAuth 2.0 Handshake

Use CA SiteMinder session tokens to authenticate and authorize users via OAuth

Use CA SiteMinder session tokens to authenticate and authorize users via OAuth

 

The Layer 7 OAuth Toolkit provides a flexible way to meet the requirements of almost any API-based access control scenario. The OAuth Toolkit can use CA SiteMinder session tokens to authenticate and authorize users while acting as an OAuth authorization server, allowing usage of existing identity systems.

This video tutorial shows how the OAuth Toolkit can be used in conjunction with SiteMinder. It provides the example of an exposed API that leverages SiteMinder to authenticate and authorize users. The goal is to extend that authentication to third-party applications using OAuth 2.0, while still utilizing SiteMinder for the user’s initial login and session generation.
