4 Types of Environments for Oracle Identity Management

This chapter describes the most common topologies for Oracle Identity Management 10g and how they compare with equivalent topologies in Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g.

This chapter contains the following sections:

4.1 Summary of the Oracle Identity Management 10g and 11g Components

The following sections describe the Oracle Identity Management components that were included in the Oracle Application Server 10g Release 2 (10.1.2) and Oracle Identity Management 10g (10.1.4) releases:

4.1.1 Identity Management Components Available in Oracle Application Server 10g Release 2 (10.1.2)

In Oracle Application Server 10g Release 2 (10.1.2), the Oracle Identity Management components consists of the following:

  • Oracle Internet Directory

  • Oracle Directory Integration Platform

  • Oracle Single Sign-On

  • Oracle Delegated Administration Services

When you install and configure these 10g Release 2 (10.1.2) components, you can install them all into the same Oracle home (a colocated environment), or you can distribute them in separate Oracle homes (a distributed environment).

For the distributed environment, users typically install the Oracle Internet Directory and Oracle Directory Integration Platform components into one Oracle home and the Oracle Single Sign-On and Oracle Delegated Administration Services components into a second Oracle home.

4.1.2 Identity Management Components Available in Oracle Identity Management 10g (10.1.4)

Oracle Identity Management 10g (10.1.4) provided the following Oracle Application Server Identity Management components:

  • Oracle Internet Directory

  • Oracle Directory Integration Platform

  • Oracle Single Sign-On

  • Oracle Delegated Administration Services

  • Oracle Virtual Directory

  • Oracle Identity Federation

  • Oracle Access Manager

As shown in the previous list, Oracle Identity Management 10g (10.1.4) introduced the Oracle Virtual Directory, Oracle Identity Federation, and Oracle Access Manager components.

In a typical environment, Oracle Virtual Directory and Oracle Identity Federation are separately from the colocated or distributed installations of the other Oracle Identity Management components.

4.1.3 Identity Management Components Available in Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g

Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g provides new versions of the following Oracle Identity Management 10g components:

  • Oracle Internet Directory

  • Oracle Directory Integration Platform

  • Oracle Virtual Directory

  • Oracle Identity Federation

Note that Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g does not include Oracle Single Sign-On or Oracle Delegated Administration Services.

For more information about the Oracle Identity Management components available with 11g, refer to the Oracle Fusion Middleware Integration Guide for Oracle Identity Management.

4.2 Oracle Internet Directory and Oracle Directory Integration Platform Topology

Oracle Identity Management 10g Release 2 (10.1.2) and 10g (10.1.4) supported two main types of Oracle Identity Management environments. The following sections describe these environments and compare them with an equivalent environment in Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g:

4.2.1 Upgrading a Colocated Identity Management Environment

Figure 4-1 compares a typical colocated Oracle Identity Management environment in 10g Release 2 (10.1.2) or 10g (10.1.4) with a similar topology in Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g.

4.2.2 Upgrading a Non-Colocated Identity Management Environment

Figure 4-2 compares a typical non-colocated Oracle Identity Management environment in Oracle Application Server 10g Release 2 (10.1.2) or 10g (10.1.4) with a similar topology in 11g.

4.3 Oracle Virtual Directory Topologies

Oracle Virtual Directory 10g could be installed and configured with Oracle Internet Directory 10g or without Oracle Internet Directory 10g.

Figure 4-3 compares the Oracle Virtual Directory 10g and Oracle Virtual Directory 11g topologies when you are not using Oracle Internet Directory.

4.4 Oracle Identity Federation Topologies

Figure 4-4 compares a typical Oracle Identity Federation topology in Oracle Application Server 10g (10.1.4) with a similar topology in Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g.
