Oracle Secure Global Desktop Gateway Enables 'Anywhere Access'

A few weeks back, I wrote a blog post on how Catholic Education South Australia leverages Oracle Secure Global Desktop to provide services anytime, anywhere. One of the questions I get asked is what enables Oracle Secure Global Desktop to allow access to applications or services 'anywhere'. The answer lies in one of Oracle Secure Global Desktop's most popular features - the Oracle Secure Global Desktop Gateway (SGD Gateway).

The SGD Gateway comes included (at no additional cost) with purchase of Oracle Secure Global Desktop. The SGD Gateway is a proxy server designed to be deployed in a demilitarized zone (DMZ), which in turn connects to an array of Oracle Secure Global Desktop servers located on the internal network of an organization. Additionally, all connections can be authenticated in the DMZ before any connections are made to the Oracle Secure Global Desktop servers in the array. Connections between client devices and SGD Gateway use port 443. Hence, this does not require administrators to obtain additional approvals for use of non-standard ports in the DMZ. 

The SGD Gateway consists of the following components:

  • Routing proxy: A Java technology-based application that routes Adaptive Internet Protocol (AIP) data connections to an Oracle Secure Global Desktop server. Keystores in the routing proxy contain the certificates and private keys used to secure connections for the SGD Gateway. The routing proxy uses routing tokens to manage AIP connections. A routing token is a signed, encrypted message that identifies the origin and destination Oracle Secure Global Desktop server for a route.
  • Reverse proxy: An Apache web server, configured to operate in reverse proxy mode. The reverse proxy also performs load balancing of HTTP connections.


To learn more about the SGD Gateway, please refer to the Oracle Secure Global Desktop Gateway Administration Guide.

We're Hiring! Oracle VM Product Management

We continue to expand the Product Management team for Oracle VM to deal with the growth and success of the product so we've got an opening on the team.  This would be a Principal Product Manager or possibly Director level individual contributor.  While we're a close team and everyone contributes to driving the product, the person in this role would likely be focused on driving the roadmap and execution in particular with internal- and external partners that are integrating Oracle VM with their products.  So we're looking for someone fairly technical that, today, typically might have a Technical Marketing Manager or Product Manager title.

Ideally, we'd locate this individual either at Oracle HQ in Redwood Shores California or in the Boston area (the campus is actually in Nashua New Hampshire), but other locations may be considered for extremely strong individuals. 

 If you are interested, please go to the Careers site on oracle.com and search by the job requisition number as the "Keyword":  IRC1873887.

 I look forward to reviewing your resume and following up with qualified candidates!
