    Integrating an IBM WebSphere Application Server for z/OS cluster with IBM Tivoli Access Manager is challenging. Tailoring the business this way allows administrators to facilitate the best of both worlds, so they can focus WebSphere Application Server as a Java environment provider and Tivoli Access Manager as a security policy enforcer.

    This IBM Redbooks publication gives you a broad understanding of how you can enforce security for IBM WebSphere Application Server on z/OS, by using IBM Tivoli Access Manager on a distributed platform. It explains how you can achieve security, scalability, and high availability by adding and further configuring resources to a computing environment.

    This book also demonstrates how to configure a WebSphere Application Server for z/OS cluster functioning with Tivoli Access Manager. It exploits high availability scenarios that you can implement in your organization. This book uses the following components for high availability:

    • WebSphere Edge Components Load Balancer for load balancing between security proxies and user registries
    • Sysplex Distributor for Web servers

    Specific products are employed for their functions and strengths. And, basic products are configured to demonstrate their high availability characteristics.
