Recently, I've worked on a proof of concept for the use of Oracle Security Token Service (OSTS) in an architecture involving Oracle Fusion Middleware, focused on Oracle WebLogic Server (WLS), Oracle Web Service Manager (OWSM) and Oracle Service Bus (OSB). There are many security scenarios in which OSTS can be used, but the initial objective was to provide single sign-on between WLS and OSB using OSTS to generate Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) tokens. This article describes the steps to implement this solution.

Scenario

The solution was applied on OWSM with OSB 11g (11.1.1.6), Oracle Access Manager (OAM) 11gR2 (11.1.2) and WLS 11g (10.3.6). A Security Token Service (STS) creates and validates security tokens, using protocols such as WS-Trust, acting as a centralizer point in security infrastructure architecture and simplifying identity propagation between heterogeneous environments.

OSTS is an Oracle Identity Management access management solution. For more information on OSTS, consult the following articles by Oracle Fusion Middleware A-Team solution architect Andre Correa:

The proof of concept required a client on WLS accessing a service provided by OSB using SAML. The SAML Assertion should be generated from OSTS.

WLS can use WS-Trust policies and communicate with OSTS, but OSB 11g still doesn't support WS-Trust policies. To work around this issue, configure OSB to trust messages signed by an OSTS certificate. Here is the complete scenario: Read the complete article here.

SOA 11g – Create RESTful Service In Oracle SOA by Vivek Garg

There are two types of web services. SOAP and REST web services. We usually deal with SOAP web services in Oracle SOA but we can also create RESTful web services in SOA.

RESTful web services are built to work best on the Web. Representational State Transfer (REST) is an architectural style. In REST data can be transmitted over a standardized interface (such as HTTP).

This post shows how we can create RESTful web service in Oracle SOA. Follow below steps to create it. We will use below schema for this post.

First create one SOA project. In composite.xml file drag “HTTP Binding” adapter and start configure it. Read the complete article here.

Location Based Offers for Banking

The growth of smart phone adoption and its implications on banking is certainly the most significant trend in banking today. Mobile payment start-ups, like Square, LevelUp, and Dwolla, are introducing new services that offer alternatives to the traditional bank/merchant credit/debit card model. Google, Facebook and Apple all want to be your trusted credential holder and “mobile wallet”, threatening the bank-centric model. Banks have a big advantage here; they have detailed information about customers’ buying habits and banks are more trusted to secure private customer information. Banks have a big opportunity to capitalize on this trend and leverage their advantages as end-to-end payment providers. One example is to leverage their mobile applications and card services capabilities to include location-based offers and mobile wallet mechanisms. Banks are uniquely positioned to provide a complete, end-to-end offer presentment and payment solution that is both more personalized to the needs of the consumer and tied to the existing merchant and payment ecosystems banks dominate today.

Showcase Description
This demonstration showcases Oracle and NGData’s solution for analysis of customer data, merchant-provided offers, geolocation and consumer data to make real time offers. This solution demonstrates how big data can be used in real time to assess and respond to a variety of conditions about an individual, select the best available offer at their current location, and deliver that offers to a smart phone application.
