Active Directory-Based Single Sign-On for IBM HTTP Server

Extending Active Directory authentication to IBM HTTP Server applications running on Debian, HP-UX, IBM AIX, Microsoft Windows, Novell SUSE, Red Hat, Sun Solaris and Ubuntu servers

The Centrify Suite for IBM HTTP Server delivers Active Directory-based web single sign-on for both intranet and extranet applications hosted both on Microsoft Windows and on popular UNIX and Linux systems.

  • For intranet applications, Centrify enables Active Directory-based web SSO via Kerberos and LDAP.
  • For extranet applications, Centrify leverages Microsoft Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) to provide federated identity management for both business-to-business and business-to-customer web applications.

A single DirectControl web module supports both authentication methods, and snaps seamlessly into the DirectControl Agent that is installed on the host server. This provides organizations with a single, integrated architecture to secure and manage access to host systems and the applications running on them. DirectControl leverages the organization's Active Directory infrastructure, accounts and groups for seamless integration into existing management processes. No additional servers or software are required.
