Sun OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 Deployment Planning Guide

Considering Assumptions, Dependencies, and Constraints

This chapter describes the conceptual integration between the two access management products. However, in real deployments the use cases will vary. In all the deployment architecture examples, the common data store is shared between two products when they are co-located. This document focuses on mutual validation of user sessions. However, mutual validation can be extended to attributes and other state information. The sessions are managed independently, and managing session timeouts are outside the scope of this document. Also, this document assumes the logout is relatively simple and involves invalidating both sessions as POST Logout process. For federation single sign-on, this document assumes SAMLv2 protocols. However, similar functionality can be achieved using other federation protocols such as ID-FF, WS-Federation, and SAML1.
