The Difference Between Access Manager 10g and 11g Webgates

A common question we get is what is the difference between Access Manager 10g and Access Manager 11g webgates.

My colleague Yagnesh who covers webgates put together a simple list:

Here is 11g features:

  • Oracle Universal Installer for platform. Generic for all platforms
  • Host-based cookie
  • Individual WebGate OAMAuthnCookie_ making it more secure
  • A per agent key, and server key, are used. Agent key is stored in wallet file and Server key is stored in Credential store
  • One per-agent secret key shared between 11g WebGate and OAM Server One OAM Server key
  • OAM 11g supports cross-network-domain single sign-on out of the box. Oracle recommends you use Oracle Identity Federation for this situation.
  • Capability to act as a detached credential collector
  • Webgate Authorization Caching
  • Diagnostic page to tune parameters
  • Has separate install and configuration option. Hence, single install and multiple instance configuration is supported.

And 10g:

  • InstallShield and One installer per platform
  • Domain-based cookie
  • ObSSOCookie (one for all 10g Webgates)
  • Global shared secret stored in the directory server only (not accessible to WebGate)
  • There is just one global shared secret key per OAM deployment which is used by all the WebGates
  • OAM 10g provides a proprietary multiple network domain SSO capability that predates Oracle Identity Federation. Complex configuration is required.
  • One Web server configuration supported per WebGate. Need to have multiple WebGates for multiple instances.
