Configuring Secure Communications for Security Adapter
Secure communications for the Siebel security adapter can be implemented in the following authentication strategies:
- Security adapter authentication: LDAP, ADSI, custom (not database authentication)
- Web SSO authentication
You can encrypt the communications between the Siebel LDAP or ADSI security adapter and the directory using SSL. The setup you must do differs depending on whether you implement the LDAP or ADSI security adapter.
To configure SSL for the LDAP security adapter
To configure SSL for the ADSI security adapter
- Set up an enterprise certificate authority in your domain.
- Set up the public key policy so that the Active Directory Server automatically demands a certificate from that certificate authority.
