The Oracle OpenSSO STS Administrator's Guide describes the features, architecture, and administration of Oracle OpenSSO Security Token Service (OpenSSO STS). This document also includes detailed installation instructions, including system requirements and other presrequisite information.


This manual is intended for anyone who performs system administration tasks for the OpenSSO STS server. You should be familiar with either the UNIX operating system or the Microsoft Windows NT operating system in order to understand the line-mode commands and examples. You can perform most of the tasks through the OpenSSO STS administration console which is platform-independent.

This documentation is available in HTML format, and contains markup to facilitate access by the disabled community. Accessibility standards will continue to evolve over time, and Oracle is actively engaged with other market-leading technology vendors to address technical obstacles so that our documentation can be accessible to all of our customers.
