Oracle Adaptative Access Manager. Setting up the Identity Context.

Oracle Adaptive Access Manager (OAAM) provides real-time and batch risk analytics to combat fraud and misuse across multiple channels of access. OAAM automates reviews of access and transaction events to detect fraud and misuse resulting in saved time and money. Read this technical post on how to set up OAAM alongside OAM Identity Context policies.

The Identity Context feature is helpful in securing access to resources using traditional security controls (such as roles and groups) as well as dynamic data established during authentication and authorization (such as authentication strength, risk levels, device trust and the like).
