Configuring authentication and authorization servers in IAG

Updated: February 10, 2010

Applies To: Intelligent Application Gateway (IAG)

You can require users to authenticate for access to Whale Communications Intelligent Application Gateway (IAG) 2007 portal and application sessions. IAG supports a number of predefined authentication schemes, and you can create custom schemes. Configuring IAG authentication requires you to set up authentication servers against which user credentials are verified.

In addition to user authentication, you can configure authorization settings for specific applications published in a portal. You specify which users and groups can access specific applications, based on users and groups defined on user/group servers used for authorization. Users and groups can be configured on the same server you use for authentication, or you can combine authentication against one type of authentication server with authorization of users and groups in a different authentication scheme.

For more information about session authentication and application authorization, see Planning for IAG authentication and authorization.

This section describes how to configure supported servers that are used for authentication and authorization.
