Develop and Deploy a Secure Portal Solution Using WebSphere Portal V5 and Tivoli Access Manager V5.1

An IBM Redbooks publication


Portals provide a personalized single point of access to applications, content, and processes through a Web interface. Secure portal solutions are needed to address common security challenges such as authentication, authorization, and single sign-on.

This IBM Redbooks publication and sample code will provide IT architects, developers, IT specialists, and administrators with the critical knowledge to design, develop, deploy, and manage a secure portal solution using IBM Tivoli Access Manager V5.1.0.2 and IBM WebSphere Portal V5.0.2.1.

Part 1, "Introduction to secure portal solutions”, introduces key concepts and provides an in-depth look at the secure portal solution architecture, topology selection, design, and integration guidelines.

Part 2, "ITSO working example secure portal solution”, describes how to implement an end-to-end secure portal solution. This part includes a business scenario, requirements, design, implementation of the runtime and development environments, application development and deployment, and administration of the secure portal solution.
