API Gateway service as a reverse-proxy protected by SiteMinder

  • 1.  API Gateway service as a reverse-proxy protected by SiteMinder

    Posted 04-10-2019 06:41 AM

    A customer would like to use the API Gateway infrastructure to create a specific service (a specific path serves by the API Gateway) to expose a web application and protect it with CA Single Sing-On (aka SiteMinder).

    In particular, following the requirements:

    1. the API Gateway acts as a reverse-proxy only for a particular served path (e.g. https://<api-gtw-fqdn>/app123) 

    2. the API Gateway acts as a SiteMinder WebAgent for the same path to autheticate the user access to that resource with CA Single Sign-On and proxy the unreached HTTP header with SiteMinder responses

     

    Is is possible? In case, any doc and/or assertion pack still exists?

     

    KR,

    Gabriele

    Dear Gabriele,

    API gateway is quite good at those tasks.

    For reverse proxy, please refer to,

    Publish Reverse Web Proxy - CA API Gateway - 9.4 - CA Technologies Documentation 

     

    For SSO siteminder, please refer to,

    Working with CA Single Sign-On - CA API Gateway - 9.4 - CA Technologies Documentation 

     

    The implementation details would rely on your env.

     

    Regards,

    Mark
