Secure Global Desktop 4.40 Administration Guide > Applications, Documents, and Application Servers > Can I Give Users Access to Web Applications Through SGD?
Yes. A web application is simply a web page (in fact, any URL) that requires the user to supply a user name and password for access. To give users access a web application, you create a document object that links to the URL of the web application.
Unlike passwords for application servers, SGD cannot cache the user names and passwords for accessing web applications. However, you can configure web server authentication so that users can access SGD from a web application without having to log in again. Alternatively, you can authenticate SGD users to the web application.
When accessing web applications, use a secure (HTTPS) web server so that all communication is encrypted using SSL before transmission.
