Oracle SSO with Third party SSO

  • Oracle’s Single Sign-On Server was part of Oracle Application Server till version 10.1.2.0.2
  • Oracle SSO now is part of Oracle Identity Management (10.1.4) which is part of Oracle Fusion Middleware family.
  • Various third party Access Management solution which you can integrate with Oracle SSO Server are Netegrity Site Minder, Oblix COREid (now Oracle Access Manager), Sun Java Access Manager
  • If you wish to integrate any Oracle Application (E-Business Suite/Apps, SOA, BI .. ) with third party access management, you have to first integrate Application with Oracle SSO and in turn integrate Oracle SSO with third party access management server.
  • Oracle SSO User repository is stored in Oracle Internet Directory (Oracle LDAP Server) so if third party access management user repository is in third party LDAP server (Microsoft’s AD, Sun’s iPlanet ) then you must synchronize users from third party LDAP Server to Oracle Internet Directory (Oracle’s LDAP Server)   * If you are on OID 10.1.4.X and higher you can use Server Chaining feature of OID
