Fine-Grained Authorization with Sun Java System Access Manager
By superpat on Jan 18, 2008
Following on from last June's Sun Developer Network article on Basic Authorization with Sun Java System Access Manager, Robert Skoczylas of Indigo Consulting and Sun tech author Marina Sum recently published a second article, Developing Secure Applications with Sun Java System Access Manager, Part 2: Advanced Authorization.
This time, Robert and Marina look at how Sun Java System Access Manager can be used as a general purpose policy store, and, with some customization, can provide fine-grained authorization for UI elements rendered by both Java and .NET web applications. This is a great article to read if you've wondered how Access Manager can be used to authorize access to resources other that the usual web page URLs.
