21.5 Introduction to WebLogic Server Domain Agent

The WebLogic Server Domain Agent, referred to as Domain Agent in this chapter, provides out-of-the-box access protection for applications deployed in a WebLogic administration domain. This agent is enabled, by default. The agent is suitable for Oracle Identity Management environments where access protection of external applications or partners is not necessary.

The out-of-the-box agent provides the following features for applications deployed in a WebLogic domain:

  • Authentication policy enforcement

  • Authorization policy enforcement

  • Front-channel authentication

  • Identity assertion

  • Back-channel anonymous authentication

  • Session validation

  • Logout
