Novell Access Manager is a comprehensive access management solution that provides secure access to Web and enterprise applications. Access Manager also provides single sign-on across technical and organizational boundaries, and uses Secure Assertions Markup Language (SAML) and Liberty Alliance protocols.
You can use the Novell Enhanced Smart Card Method (NESCM) to authenticate to Access Manager.
The following prerequisites apply:
Be able to authenticate to eDirectory.
Install the Novell Enhanced Smart Card Method. For information on how to install NESCM, see Section 2.2, Installing the Method. These instructions require you to install the method on the eDirectory server and on the client workstation, and assume that a functioning smart card reader is already installed. Follow instructions from your manufacturer and verify the workstation's ability to read data from your card.
Configure the NESCM server by following the guidelines presented in Section 3.0, Configuring the Server.
Properly provision your smart card according to your company policy.
Make sure you have a basic Access Gateway configuration with a protected resource that you want to protect with a smart card. For more information, see the Novell Access Manager Installation Guide and the Novell Access Manager Setup Guide.
To integrate NESCM as an authentication agent to Novell Access Manager, complete the tasks described in the Novell Access Manager Administration Guide.
