Sun Java System Access Manager 7 2005Q4 Administration Guide

Response Providers

Response providers are plug-ins that provide policy-based response attributes. The response provider attributes are sent with policy decisions to the PEP. Access Manager includes one implementation, the IDResponseProvider. Custom response providers are not supported in this version of Access Manager. Agents, PEPs, typically pass these response attributes as headers to applications. Applications typically use these attributes to personalize application pages such as a portal page.
