I'm simply looking for a high-level overview of how CA SSO supports Docket today -- and possibly in R12.8.
I've browsed a few discussions and it looks one can run CA SSO and CA Access Gateway in a container. I've seen a request (with numerous votes from the community) for CA SSO agents to run in containers. Is this a fair summary?
The reason I ask is that we have a pressing need to run Apache/JBoss in containers. If web agents will be able to run in containers in say R12.8 -- that would be nice to know.
We currently don't use CA Access Gateway -- but I'm wondering if we need to consider deploying this if this product is our only option to support SIteMinder-protected Apache/JBoss applications on Docker.
Any high-level guidance on how a company should support Docker/CA SSO Agents today -- and in the future -- would be tremendously appreciated!
For CA SSO Agents in Docker :
New Features - CA Single Sign-On - 12.7 - CA Technologies Documentation
Use Web Agent in Dynamically Scaled Environments - CA Single Sign-On - 12.7 - CA Technologies Documentation
Using CA SSO Agents in a Dynamic environment (Docker/Openshift)
CA SSO Policy Server & CA AG is currently not supported on Docker, but refer the links below.
Siteminder support for Docker instances Apache
CA SSO (SiteMinder) Support on Docker Container Platforms
Thanks for your quick response! As our immediate need is for web agents -- this is exactly what I was looking for.
Aside, my comments regarding the policy server and CA Access Gateway came from the announcement below.
Glad to be of help.
Availability of a technology preview of CA SSO as a software appliance
This is only available in validation site I believe. This is not available for GA release outside of validation.
We have successfully used the 12.52 sp1 cr6 Web Agent in a Docker container on a Windows Server 2016. We were able to install it and configure it with no issues.
