Authentication Architectures In Oracle ADF

Oracle ADF without Single Sign On (SSO)

Secured ADF application can use Weblogic Server Authentication Providers. Providers can be directory servers like OUD (Oracle Unified Directory), AD (Active Directory) etc..

Oracle ADF with Own SSO

Implementing your own single sign-on solution for Oracle ADF applications is a proven path to failure

  • Failure to keep authenticated user session state (OTN forum reports) 
  • Performance problems coded into your applications 
  • Insecure token and credential sharing 

Oracle ADF With Single Sign-On Using OAM

ADF Security works well with Oracle Access Manager (OAM) for single sign-on.Think Out of the box :)

When user wants to connect to the application, OAM Web Gate redirects user to SSO login page and user validates username and password.

Then login page creates OAM session with query for OID and OAM_ID is generated.

And Web Gate uses ID and cookie file for authenticated user to application.
