Sun Java System Access Manager 7 2005Q4 Technical Overview

Access Manager Policy Agents

You install an Access Manager Policy Agent on a protected resource to enforce the policy decisions determined by the Policy Service. The policy agent intercepts requests from applications, and redirects the requests to Access Manager for authentication. Once the user is authenticated, the policy agent communicates with the Policy Service. The policy agent allows the user access or denies the user access depending upon the result of policy evaluation.
