We are trying to integrate OAAM with citrix.Do you have any idea about it, Is it feasible.Are there any docs available on it?


Atul Kumar says December 3, 2008

VJ as OAAM comes with two subcomponents strong authenticator and adaptive risk manager (online or offline) how you are planning to implement.

There is no straight doc with citrix but implementation is not difficult either.

Check with architect about design solution and then implement accordignly.

Hi Atul.

I’m trying to integrate one application with OAAM.
But i’m really confused about the UIO instalation option.

The SA have a communication with the database of my application?
How can I pass the data of my app to SA authentication?

I have a dummy password in the, but when i remove this dummy password, i’m unable to access the SA.
Where the OAAM request the userName and password for authentication?

How can i configure, in production enviroment, the images and phases for KeyPad, pinPad, questionPad, etc…

Hi Atul,

We are currently doing a study of OAAM features from deployment point of view? Can you please tell if there are any services or features of OAAM specifically aimed at mobile devices? If yes, what are they? Also if there are any features that can be integrated with mobile devices.

Can you provide any documentation on setting up Citrix and OAM. Oracle support wasn’t able to help. We even have an Oracle OAM person that helped us implement it to the rest of the environment but him nor his colleges have set it up with Citrix. Can you give us some detail or direction on this comment? I would really appreciate it.
