Pinned topic Regarding WebSphere LTPA Based Authentication

‏2013-01-29T15:15:54Z |
Hi,

I have few queries regarding WebSphere LTPA Based Authentication.
Below are the details of my environment:
WL Studio 5.0.5 - Enterprise Edition on Win7
WL Server 5.0.5 - Enterprise Edition on Red Hat Enterprise Linux
(Database - Apache Derby, Application server - WebSphere® Application Server Liberty Profile)

1. My query is whether with the above environment of WL Server and Studio I can implement a LTPA based authentication.

2. In the administration guide I read something like below:
IBM Worklight Server is installed behind a Web SSO acting as a reverse proxy and providing SSL.

I hope point 2 does not mean that we need to install WL Server on a Web Server that we are trying to access, which has Web SSO before it.

Thanks,
Baxi

    Yes, with your current configuration you will be able to implement LTPA authentication just fine.
    2. In the administration guide I read something like below:
    IBM Worklight Server is installed behind a Web SSO acting as a reverse proxy and providing SSL.
    I'm assuming that there is a bit more context to this line... I don't think it applies to your current configuration. If you install Worklight on the environment you have described, you will be able to use LTPA based authentication.
