This chapter provides information about Sun Java System Policy Agent 2.2 as it pertains specifically to IBM Lotus Domino 6.5.4.
While the individual web agents tend to be similar in terms of installation and configuration, they can have unique characteristics that allow them to interact with unique characteristics in the underlying deployment container, such as a web server or proxy server. Therefore, this chapter describes characteristics that are unique to this agent, Sun Java System Access Manager Policy Agent 2.2 for IBM Lotus Domino 6.5.4, and that are unique to just the deployment container, IBM Lotus Domino 6.5.4. This chapter also summarizes specific tasks you might need to perform because of the unique characteristics of the deployment container.
The following sections provide information about the supported platforms of Policy Agent 2.2 for IBM Lotus Domino 6.5.4 as well as the compatibility of this agent with Access Manager.

This section describes characteristics that are unique about this specific web agent.
You can configure Agent for IBM Lotus Domino 6.5.4 to check if each user name that the agent authenticates exists in the Lotus Domino directory. A simple configuration step is required, which involves editing the web agent AMAgent.properites configuration file as described in All Systems: Using the Lotus Domino Database with Agent for IBM Lotus Domino 6.5.4.
Be aware that Policy Agent 2.2 for IBM Lotus Domino 6.5.4 does not support cross domain single sign-on (CDSSO). The IBM Lotus Domino 6.5.4 deployment container does not allow the agent to change the method type from POST to GET, which is necessary for cross domain single sign-on.
This technology for passing user authentication information between servers is supported by Agent for IBM Lotus Domino 6.5.4. For information on which properties in the web agent AMAgent.properties configuration file affect the configuration of this technology, see Configuring Agent for IBM Lotus Domino 6.5.4 with Lightweight Third-Party Authentication (LTPA).
