OpenAM provides core identity services to simplify the implementation of transparent single sign-on (SSO) as a security component in a network infrastructure. It also provides the foundation for integrating diverse web applications that might typically operate against a disparate set of identity repositories and that are hosted on a variety of platforms such as web application servers. Open Source Identity Management Patterns and Practices Using OpenAM 10.x is a condensed, practical guide on installing OpenAM to protect your web applications. This book will teach you how to integrate to different identity sources such as Active Directory or Facebook using two-factor authentications.
