■Oracle Virtual Directory, an LDAP version 3 enabled service that provides virtualized abstraction of one or more enterprise data sources into a single directory view. Oracle Virtual Directory provides the ability to integrate LDAP-aware applications into diverse directory environments while minimizing or eliminating the need to change either the infrastructure or the applications. It supports a diverse set of clients, such as Web applications and portals, and it can connect to directories, databases, and Web services.■Oracle Identity Federation, a self-contained federation solution that provides the infrastructure that enables identities and their relevant entitlements to be propagated across security domains—this applies to domains existing within an organization as well as between organizations.■Oracle Web Services Manager, which provides a way to centrally define and manage policies that govern Web services operations, including access control (authentication and authorization), reliable messaging, Message Transmission Optimization Mechanism (MTOM), WS-Addressing, and Web services management. Policies can be attached to multiple Web services, requiring no modification to the existing Web services.■Oracle Platform Security Services (OPSS), which provides enterprise product development teams, systems integrators, and independent software vendors See Also:Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle Web CacheSee Also:Oracle Fusion Middleware Integration Overview for Oracle Identity Management SuiteSee Also:Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle Internet DirectorySee Also:Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle Virtual DirectorySee Also:Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle Identity FederationSee Also:Oracle Fusion Middleware Security and Administrator's Guide for Web Services
Understanding Key Oracle Fusion Middleware Concepts1-4Oracle Fusion Middleware 2 Day Administration Guide(ISVs) with a standards-based, portable, integrated, enterprise-grade security framework for Java Standard Edition (Java SE) and Java Enterprise Edition (Java EE) applications.OPSS provides an abstraction layer in the form of standards-based application programming interfaces (APIs) that insulate developers from security and identity management implementation details. With OPSS, developers do not need to know the details of cryptographic key management or interfaces with user repositories and other identity management infrastructures. Using OPSS, in-house developed applications, third-party applications, and integrated applications benefit from the same uniform security, identity management, and audit services across the enterprise.
