The Policy Agent provides these capabilities:
Retrieve and map an OpenSSO Enterprise user session attribute (UserToken), to an Identity Manager attribute (sois_user), so that Identity Manager can perform the single sign-on from OpenSSO Enterprise.
Access protection for the Identity Manager pages in addition to the protection offered by the specific capabilities that can be explicitly assigned to a user from the Identity Manager administrator interface.
The sois_user is the authentication property in Identity Manager that is used during single sign-on between OpenSSO Enterprise and Identity Manager. The name sois_user given to the property was an abbreviation for Sun ONE Identity Server User. The Sun ONE Identity Server product was a predecessor to OpenSSO Enterprise.
