This article describes a service-based approach to authorization in Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) environments using IBM® Tivoli® Federated Identity Manager (TFIM). This approach extends existing IBM solutions for identity propagation in SOA by leveraging Tivoli Access Manager (TAM) as the authorization policy decision point. A software utility to discover services from the IBM WebSphere® Service Registry and Repository (WSRR) to enable the authorization solution will be provided to simplify and accelerate deployment of this authorization solution.
