IBM® Tivoli® Federated Identity Manager provides an implementation of the WS-Trust specification. This implementation uses a chain of responsibility pattern to modify security tokens on both inbound and outbound requests. Federated Identity Manager provides out-of-the-box support for several different types of security tokens. However, enterprises may require custom trust modules for their environment. This article details the process behind building and deploying a custom trust module. We assume the custom module will be deployed using Tivoli Federated Identity Manager 6.0, Fix Pack 1 or later (all code related to a custom module must run under JDK 1.4.2).
