Open Mic Webcast: Configuring an IBM Domino Web Server to use Web federated Login (SAML)

IBM is offering an Open Mic Webcast about configuring SAML authentication on a IBM Domino Web Server.

Abstract

This procedure ensures that an IBM Domino Web server can participate in SAML-based single sign-on (SSO). The Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) standard allows a Domino server to trust an authentication assertion from a specified identity provider (IdP).

After a presentation, attendees will be given an opportunity to ask our panel of experts questions. Throughout the event, attendees will also be encouraged to comment or ask questions in the IBM Connections Meetings Web chat. Follow us on Twitter @IBM_ICSsupport.

Problem

Your IBM Verse for Android applications connect to your on-premises IBM Traveler server using an unencrypted HTTP connection instead of an encrypted HTTPS connection. Since the IBM Traveler server can use unencrypted HTTP connections immediately without any additional setup, some installations may have skipped the HTTPS setup procedures prior to deploying Verse for Android to users. To ensure that all your communications are encrypted, first enable HTTPS either on your IBM Traveler server or on an edge proxy. Then ensure the IBM Verse for Android app begins using the encrypted connection without requiring any manual intervention from your users.
