This two-part series provides a solution for some unsupported single sign-on (SSO) scenarios when deploying IBM® Security Access Manager for Enterprise Single Sign-On (ISAM ESSO). Learn about the current SSO and operating system alliance model and why, for some software technologies, ISAM ESSO can't provide full integration.
