This blog describes the enhanced features for the login modules and the policy configurations in Application Server (AS) Java and gives a link to a Wiki page that shows some good practical examples.
The login modules allow administrators to define how the user will log into the system. It can be done through a username or password by using the BasicPasswordLoginModule or through a certificate by using the ClientCertLoginModule. In these login module configurations the administrator can specify what part of the certificate or what identifier the system must use for locating the user in its database.
In the policy configuration properties, by setting a regular expression filter the administrators can define which users are allowed to log into the system, and what part of the identifier the system to use for further processing. Furthermore, by setting a property for creating tickets the administrators can allow users to log into AS ABAP systems.
I am looking forward to getting any feedback from you. Please give me your opinion of how this blog looks and how to improve it. Don’t forget to look at the linked Wiki page that will help you understand the main principles. Do you find the scenarios interesting? Feel free to add any comments or questions.
