NetIQ’s Sentinel product is a SIEM solution that provides the ability to capture events from any number of event sources, and of any type, into a system that normalizes the data, finds meaning in a barrage of nonsense (needle in a haystack), and includes incidents management based on custom workflows as defined by each customer….
Introduction Many organizations need or desire to do SAML SSO to AWS. AWS supports identity federation using SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language 2.0), an open standard used by many identity providers. This feature enables federated single sign-on (SSO), which lets users log into the AWS Management Console or make programmatic calls to AWS APIs. Using…
This document explains the process of troubleshooting claims sent in SAML messages through the WS Federation protocol in a Federated App (hosted in MS Azure) using IDP servers as an Identity Service in Access Manager 3.1.4 and later. Basically by following this quick and dirty process you will be able to see how the values configured in an attribute set are being sent from Access Manager to the Microsoft Azure App.
This article explains how to retrieve, manipulate, and send data in a SAML assertion that is not available from the configured user store in a SAML assertion – “external data”.
This cool solution will show you how to integrate ServiceNow into your NAM implementation using a federated authentication via SAML 2.0. By using SAML 2.0, your users authenticate to NAM as they typically do using their existing LDAP credentials provided by your corporate directory. The service-now.com application then authenticates users via SAML without the need to synchronize passwords with service-now.com.
We recently sat down with Martin Stroud, Deputy CIO of Owens Community College which offers more than 200 online courses, and attracts a web-savvy student body and Matt Weisberg, Vice President and CIO of Weisberg Consulting, Inc. “The better online service we deliver, the more in demand our school becomes,” said Stroud. “It’s critical that…
Gaurav Vaidya explains how to configure SAML based SSO from NetIQ Access Manager to Novell Service Desk.
This article by Alan Weber and Neil Cashell explains how to configure a Novell Access Manager 3.1 SAML 1.1 Identity provider so that it integrates seamlessly with a Vertex SAML 1.1 Service Provider using the Intersite transfer URL.
When debugging the most common SAML setups with Novell Access Manager, the Authentication Request and response including the assertion are sent via the browser using the POST or Redirect profile. HTTP header output on the browser can be used to view these SAML request/responses, but the content is both URL and base64 encoded and therefor not very legible. Here’s a tip from Neil Cashell on how to use a new SAML plugin for Firefox that will make it faster to troubleshoot and more legible.
Using Novell Access Manager (NAM) with salesforce.com allows your users to use their existing LDAP credentials for single sign-on access to salesforce.com as well as any web applications protected by NAM.
This cool solution will show you how to add salesforce.com to your NAM implementation using a federated authentication via SAML 2.0. By using SAML 2.0, your users authenticate to NAM as they typically do using their existing LDAP credentials provided by your corporate directory. salesforce.com then authenticates users via SAML without the need to synchronize passwords with salesforce.com. Once configured, your users will have SSO access to all your web resources protected by NAM through either the Access Gateway or using federation protocols. Unfortunately, salesforce.com does not support federated provisioning, so you will still need create users in salesforce.com. If you would like to automatically provision, deprovision, and manage the salesforce.com identities, you can use Novell Identity Manager, but that is out of scope for this article.
