The following are examples of capabilities that can be leveraged by using the Client SDK to integrate OpenSSO Enterprise with other applications:
Java or C /C++
Applications can be enabled to directly invoke the Client SDK for authentication, authorization, and auditing services.
This use case is for legacy applications that require the user to submit credentials directly to the application before access to services is allowed.
In this use case, the authentication authority is the application itself. Once the user is authenticated, the remaining security services such as single sign-on, policy evaluation, and identity federation are provided by OpenSSO Enterprise.
