Abstract

IBM® Tivoli® Access Manager for e-business can manage and enforce access control to Web-based resources located on Web servers or Web application servers. It uses "junctions" to identify and address those servers. When a user wants to access those resources, the browser uses a set of URL links that have to be translated because the back-end Web server uses different links. In this paper we explain how Tivoli Access Manager WebSEAL processes URLs from the back-end server and the client.

This IBM Redpaper™ document is intended to help implementors and system administrators who need to configure Tivoli Access Manager WebSEAL to protect back-end Web servers.
