Performance is a key measurement for an API, especially when the API is integrated with services that may not respond quickly. One example of such a service is a complex IBM Cognos Business Intelligence (BI) report. This tutorial describes a solution for a RESTful API design that uses WebSphere DynaCache to help improve response times for performance sensitive API clients, such as a user interface. The tutorial also discusses a few critical factors to effectively build APIs with performance in mind, such as cache key configuration and invalidation rules.

Protecting mobile applications with the ISAM module for IBM DataPower Gateway, Part 2: Creating and applying multi-factor authentication policies using one-time passwords
In Part 1 of this tutorial series, you learned how to deploy the ISAM reverse proxy on IBM DataPower Gateway to enforce access to a mobile application. The reverse proxy was then combined with a Multi Protocol Gateway to provide additional API security and integration functionality. This full solution provides a comprehensive gateway enforcement point and mobile API access on the DataPower platform. In this second part, you will extend the security policy to include enforcement of a one-time password. This policy will require an OTP authentication level step-up when a "high value" transaction is attempted. The enforcement of this policy will be done using the ISAM reverse proxy on DataPower. The policy definition and runtime evaluation will be done using ISAM for Mobile.

Making the move to the Liberty profile, Part 3: Migrating a JBoss application to Liberty
In the third and final installment of this series, you will follow the process discussed in Parts 1 and 2 to migrate a JBoss application to the IBM WebSphere Application Server Liberty profile - without incident. One of the steps will be to use the Liberty Technology Preview to identify any porting issues so you can quickly decide if an application is a good fit for the Liberty lightweight container. The straightforward process enables you to very quickly migrate not only the application code, but also the server configuration required for running that application.

Comment lines: Encrypting WebSphere Application Server system passwords — if you insist
IBM WebSphere Application Server stores system passwords in files that are simply encoded. To support clients who want to implement their own password storage mechanism, WebSphere Application Server has provided a System Programming Interface (SPI) to do so. Encrypting these system passwords can provide some marginal additional security benefits for a specific class of vulnerability (poorly implemented application code), but it cannot provide defense against a malicious programmer or a determined attack. If you insist on implementing a password encryption solution, here is one example of how you could achieve this using the SPI.

Protecting mobile applications with the ISAM module for IBM DataPower Gateway, Part 1: Securing and optimizing mobile workloads using mobile patterns
The IBM Security Access Manager module for IBM DataPower Gateway delivers strong authentication capabilities to protect mobile applications with multi-factor authentication based on contextual data and enforcement using one-time passwords. Enterprises must protect both consumer and employee mobile applications from malicious attackers to avoid data exposures and unauthorized access to mobile applications. Stronger security can be enforced using multiple authentication factors, often based on "something you know", such as a password, and "something you have", such as a mobile device. In this tutorial, you will learn how to use the ISAM module multi-factor security framework to protect applications based on user credentials.

Implementing OAuth on IBM WebSphere DataPower Appliances, Part 3: Form login policies and the role of AAA
Part 3 of this multi-part article series discusses DataPower AAA policies, form login policies, and their role in supporting the OAuth 2.0 protocol. Since the form login policy provides value beyond its OAuth role, a form-based authentication service proxy is implemented with a multi-protocol gateway to demonstrate how the AAA policies and form login polices work together. As mentioned in Part 2, the WTS wizard is employed in a form-based OAuth scenario to demonstrate the automation of many of the manual MPGW steps.

Using block storage in IBM PureApplication System pattern workloads
IBM PureApplication System 2.0 supports a new kind of storage volume called block storage. Unlike storage support in previous versions, block storage decouples storage from the lifecycle of the workload encapsulated in the patterns. The storage persists after the workload is deleted, and can be attached to a different workload. This tutorial shows you how to use block and shared block storage in PureApplication System pattern workloads.
