5 Installing and Configuring Additional Software

This chapter describes the process of installing and configuring additional software to enhance Oracle Communications Network Integrity.

Overview of Additional Installation Tasks

Install and configure the following additional software:

Installing and Configuring Oracle Internet Directory

The WebLogic Server includes an embedded LDAP store that acts as the default security provider data store for the Default Authentication, Authorization, Credential Mapping, and Role Mapping providers. You manage the embedded LDAP store using the WebLogic console. The Oracle Universal Installer uses this embedded LDAP server by default as the security provider. During installation, you can change the setting to use third party security providers with the Oracle WebLogic server.

See the WebLogic Server documentation for information on the embedded LDAP server.

You also have the option to use an external LDAP store, or security provider, if your requirements are greater and you need more security options than are provided by the embedded LDAP server.

Oracle recommends Oracle Internet Directory as the LDAP store external to the WebLogic server.

You require the following information to install the Oracle Internet Directory:

For information on installing Oracle Internet Directory, see Installing and Configuring Oracle Internet Directory at the Oracle Technology Network.
