I have quick question about AWS and SiteMinder, I am new to AWS, but not SiteMinder.
I have the runbook for SiteMinder and AWS. Which gives more insight and knowledge on how to integrate AWS with SiteMinder.
If there is an application, I could leverage SiteMinder to provide authentication and authorization, however, if there is a windows server hosted virtually in AWS EC2, will the user be able to login using the internal org AD, through the roles provided?
How could we make the server hosted in AWS EC2 to use the AD users accounts to login to the server, instead of using the locally created accounts?
Please let me know, as this is very urgent.
this might be silly, but considering the amount fo acronym reuse i see, what does AWS stand for?
Amazon Web Services
Amazon webservices - hosting site
My thought from the title was Apache Web Server.
My thought from content was Amazon Web Services.
i remember Steve Lavioe (sp on the last name?) once saying "TLAs always require context"
i remember replying "and the context for TLA there is?"
remember, the problem with [Three Letter] Acronyms is that overuse of acronyms means that until it's been expanded once, you cannot be positive. i wanted to be sure that i knew which one was right or if it might mean something else, that we know what it means.
I just knew cause Christie said Amazon EC2 and that is there elastic compute cloud platform, but you are right, a lot of time acronyms are hard to understand!
Based on the thread: The run book you are referring is a federation where the IDP would be from outside AWS.
If you are using AWS to host policy server with Active directory as a user store (hosted on a corporate network) the policy server will need to have access to the user store similar to being hosted.
Something to look into AWS Directory Service to access your active Directory
Steve et al,
How much of a hybrid cloud solution is possible using on-premise instances of Siteminder (PS and agents), AWS based instances of PS and WA and CA's SaaS Auth/Az solution (CloudMinder)?
