WSPL-AM-3508-D: OpenSSO Deployment
Submitted by Paul OwensSUN on Wed, 08/06/2008 - 14:10.
Deploying OpenSSO servers in a simple environment is trivially easy. But throw secure sockets layer (SSL), load balancers, multiple servers, session failover, and Policy Agents into the mix, and deployment becomes a little more complex.
The OpenSSO Deployment course - a series of five downloadable, self-paced labs - takes you through a complex OpenSSO deployment. You deploy two Apache Tomcat servers, SSL-enable them, install a software load balancer, install OpenSSO into the environment, and configure OpenSSO for session failover. Then you install an example web server and an example application server, and install Policy Agent software to see how OpenSSO protects web sites and JavaTM 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EETM) applications.
This course uses OpenSSO Build 4.5, which provides identical functionality to OpenSSO Express Build 5. Other deployment components include Apache Tomcat version 6.0.14, Sun Java System Web Server version 7.0, and GlassFishTM application server version 2.
To run the OpenSSO Deployment labs, you must be able to start a Solaris Operating System (Solaris OS) terminal window and run commands from the command line.
