Administering SPNEGO within WebSphere Application Server: Tips on using Kerberos service principal names
   

I am adding this to my required reading list for projects where Kerberos and SPNEGO are used to deliver desktop Single Sign-On with WebSphere Application Server: -

Summary:  The Simple and Protected GSS-API Negotiation (SPNEGO) trust association interceptor (TAI) in IBM® WebSphere® Application Server V6.1 and in the SPNEGO Web Authentication feature in WebSphere Application Server V7.0 can be a powerful tool to achieve a seamless single sign-on environment between Microsoft® Windows® desktops and WebSphere-based servers. However, some users have trouble configuring service principal names when using SPNEGO. This article describes some best practices for configuring Microsoft Active Directory when using SPNEGO with WebSphere Application Server. (Updated for WebSphere Application Server Versions 6.1 and 7.0.)


This paragraph is especially useful: _

• Users with WebSphere Application Server Version 5.1.1.x and 6.0.x can obtain a custom service offering solution from IBM Software Services for WebSphere (ISSW). This solution comes with the source code, and you maintain the custom code yourself. To obtain more information about the ISSW SPNEGO TAI services offering for WebSphere Application Server V5.1.1 and V6.0, contact IBM Software Services for WebSphere.

• WebSphere Application Server Version 6.1 ships a TAI based upon the ISSW version mentioned above, which is a fully supported product code. However, you do not get the source code with this version.

• WebSphere Application Server V7.0 includes SPNEGO function via a new SPNEGO Web Authentication. (V7.0 still ships, but has deprecated, the SPNEGO TAI.)

as I'd previously assumed that WAS did not include native SPNEGO support until 7.0.0.9. In fact, we shipped SPNEGO in WAS 6.1, but have moved to a new SPNEGO Web Authentication module in v7.

All good stuff …..

Will add this to my existing presentation for WAS and SPNEGO ( as delivered at Social Connections II in Cardiff last year )

IBM Redbooks: using Open Source with Liberty profile

The IBM Redbooks publication, Configuring and Deploying Open Source with WebSphere Application Server Liberty Profile was published last month and recently updated. For anyone new to the Liberty profile, the book provides an introduction to its capabilities. It then explains how you can install, customise, and configure several open source technologies to deploy to a Liberty profile server. It uses a simple "Todo" sample application to demonstrate the use of multiple open source frameworks or [read] Keywords: ibm apple application development integration profile server websphere

IBM Business Monitor - Unable to delete BusinessSpaces
Tue, Apr 8th 2014 8:25a   Dave Hay
One of my clients hit an interesting issue with IBM Business Monitor 8.0.1.1, that'd likely affect any product using BusinessSpace, including Business Process Manager. This was a newly minted environment, and we were quite able to create Business Spaces, but we were unable to delete them. There were no obvious exceptions in the WAS logs or in the underlying Oracle database. It was a bit of a puzzler. At my suggestion, the client raised a PMR with IBM Support, which came up trumps. The client me [read] Keywords: access control list acl ibm database oracle tivoli

Integration Throughout and Beyond the Enterprise
Fri, Apr 4th 2014 7:45a   Dave Hay
Abstract Throughout the history of the IT industry, integration has been an important part of most projects. Integration of transactional, integration of data or integration of processes, each has its own challenges and associated patterns and anti-patterns. In an age of Mobile, Social and Cloud, integration is more than important than ever, but the scope of the challenge facing IT projects has changed. Partner APIs, social networks, physical sensors and devices, all of these and more are impor [read] Keywords: ibm application enterprise integration mobile
