HxGN EAM Version

Modifications to HxGN EAM include the following:

  • An authentication handler must be written in Java and added to the HxGN EAM deployment.

  • A security handler may optionally be added to the deployment as well.

An SSO server can be integrated with HxGN EAM if it is able to perform the following actions:

  • Handle a browser-based authentication request.

    Since HxGN EAM does not collect authentication credentials from the user, the SSO server must be able to collect from the user whatever information it needs for authentication.

  • Redirect a browser back to HxGN EAM based on a dynamically specified URL (see below).

  • Communicate with the authentication and security handlers.

    These handlers will presumably connect to the SSO server by some means to obtain the information they require. The SSO server must provide the necessary interface.
