Fine-Grained Authorization with Sun Java System Access Manager

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.

Basic Authorization with Sun Java System Access Manager

As I reported yesterday at The Aquarium, Robert Skoczylas of Indigo Consulting and Sun tech author Marina Sum just published Developing Secure Applications with Sun Java System Access Manager, Part 1: Basic Authorization at Sun Developer Network. This article, part 1 of a series, presents a case study of implementing authentication, single sign-on, and authorization at a fictional health-care insurance company.

There's some really good stuff in there - Robert and Marina work from a high-level description of the problem right down to specific Access Manager customizations. In particular, the detailed description of customizing Access Manager's policy framework is well worth the read for anyone working with, or evaluating, Sun Java System Access Manager.
