Portal and IBM Worklight V6.0, Part 3: Implementing
automatic single sign-on with Worklight and WebSphere
More and more, enterprises are providing multi-channel support to their web channel communities. This article explains how IBM WebSphere Portal and IBM Worklight V6.0 enable enterprises to create Worklight applications capable of automatically logging a user in upon startup, while also using single sign-on (SSO) to log the user into a WebSphere Portal server on the same host at the same time. This makes it easy for mobile apps to display portal pages customized to the user from within the application.

|New security APIs in WebSphere Portal
This article gives a detailed introduction, usage scenarios, guidelines, and samples to three new security APIs: the portlet login service, the remember me cookie portlet service, and the authentication filter model. The portlet login service, available since IBM® WebSphere® Portal V6.0.1, allows triggering of a login by username and password from a portlet. The remember me cookie portlet service enables you to use the new remember me cookie functionality introduced with WebSphere Portal V6.1 from your portlet. Third, the authentication filter model provides six plug-points to add custom code to the WebSphere Portal login, logout, and session handling flows.
