Can CA Access Gateway replace WSS Agent ?

    We are evaluating a migration from the WebAgent/Option Pack towards CA Access Gateway; in our infrastructure the WSS-Agent is also present; Is CA Access Gateway able to deal with WS-Security ?


    The only scenario we have covered with the WSS Agent does a couple of things:

    - Validate the SOAP Request signature

    - Extract the certificate's CN from within the SOAP Request and validates if over a User Directory.


    The product documentation doesn't mention this so I'm wondering if it is supported 


    The thing is, WSS Agent is stuck at the version 12.52 SP1 (like standard WebAgent) , while the Access Gateway is currently following the PS Release.
