Hi Steven,

I can see that Netegrity Siteminder was a part of integration of third-party authentication systems with Oracle Single Sign-On. May I know does the HP Siteminder authentication systems was supported as well with in Oracle SSO integration?

Hi, Zen,

I've just returned from a multiweek vacation. In case you haven't tracked down the answer yet:

Yes, it's technically possible to integrate other third-party authentication systems with Oracle SSO. I'm not personally familiar with HP's Siteminder product, but if it can be configured handle header variable-based security tokens, then this should be feasible. It might be worth contacting HP Support to see whether they have any whitepapers on integrating their product with Oracle Single Sign-On.

If you encounter any obstacles with that, drop me a line and I can connect you with our Oracle Consulting group that specializes in these types of security integrations.

Regards,
Steven
