service SSOManagerFactory
Description
represents a starting point for Single Signon interactions.

The Single Signon ( SSO ) apis provide UNO based access to underlying SSO implementations ( e.g. Kerberos ). The aim of the SSO apis is to enable authentication ( possibly mutual ) between a client ( source or initiator ) and a network service ( target or acceptor ). This is achieved via. the creation and processing of security tokens sent between the two parties. The steps which should be followed to successfully use the SSO apis are as follows:

  • Create an XSSOManagerFactory instance
  • Use this factory to create/retrieve an XSSOManager instance.
  • Depending on whether your code is acting as SSO source or target, you should use the XSSOManager instance to create an initiator security context, XSSOInitiatorContext or an acceptor security context, XSSOAcceptorContext respectively.
  • On the initiator side, use the previously created context to process security tokens received from the acceptor side and to create security tokens to send to the acceptor side. On the acceptor side, use the previously created context to process security tokens received from the initiator side and to create security tokens to send to the initiator side.
