Use OpenAM quickly and efficiently to protect your web

OpenAM is a new book from Packt that will help developer's to get the most out of Single Sign-On. Written by Indira Thangasamy, this book will help readers with the implementation of Single Sign-On using OpenAM and obtain support for their OpenAM deployment.

OpenAM provides core identity services to simplify the implementation of transparent single sign-on (SSO) as a security component in a network infrastructure. It provides the foundation for integrating diverse web applications that might typically operate against a disparate set of identity repositories and are hosted on a variety of platforms such as web and application servers.

OpenAM starts off with an introduction to OpenAM and describes the core features as well as the kind of problems that can be solved by OpenAM. It helps user's to build OpenAM from the source and configure it in a high availability scenario using a load balancer. They will also learn how to administer OpenAM using UI and command-line tools as well as create custom privileges for different user levels.

With the help of this book, developer's will be able to integrate Salesforce and Google Apps with OpenAM infrastructure using the SAMlv2 protocol. They can use REST-based identity web services to perform authentication, authorization, and audit as well as perform OpenAM backup and recovery.

Security architects or a solution developer responsible for the design and development of web-based enterprise applications will find this book to be an interesting and benificial read. This book is out now and available from Packt. For more information, please visit:

Packt, pronounced Packed, published its first book Mastering phpMyAdmin for Effective MySQL Management in April 2004 and subsequently continued to specialize in publishing focused books on specific technologies and solutions.
