How To - Identity Propagation for REST using OWSM - 12.1.2

This is a follow up to my previous blog post, in that post I provided step by step instructions on how to secure a REST service and client built using Jersey JAX-RS technology that ships with Weblogic.

In this post I am providing a pointer to a detailed step-by-step instructions on how to do identity propagation for REST.

I strong encourage people read up on the previous How Tos covered in the following blog posts before attempting the How to provided in this post:

How To - OWSM 12.1.2 Installation

As I mentioned in my previous blog post FMW 12.1.2 was released today. There are a few things that are different in terms of installation for OWSM in 12.1.2 compared to 11g. So I have created a fairly detailed Install How-To with screen shots. This complements the 12.1.2 Install guide.

Note: The How To does not describe all scenarios/topologies. It is mainly intended for demo installs and to give you a quick overview of key steps.

FMW 12.1.2 released!

FMW 12.1.2 was just released! This a major release for Fusion Middleware components.

The release basically includes the following Fusion Middleware components:

OWSM 12.1.2 documentation can be found here.

This release includes a lot of new features as described here

Here are key ones from my perspective:

REST security support for services and  clients.

This includes support for LPA and GPA in terms of policy attachment. You can do Policy Attachment in JDeveloper, EM, WLST. Monitoring, Auditing, etc.

Support for WS-SecureConversation, WS-Trust 1.3, Web Service Federation

Enhanced Kerberos, SPNEGO support including credential delegation

Support for securing SOAP over JMS

I hope to cover many of these features in more detail in the subsequent posts!
