The External Authentication Interface (EAI) extends the Reverse Proxy also known as WebSEAL, so that a remote application or service can authenticate Access Manager users.
This lab demonstrates steps to configure IBM Access Access Manager (ISAM) Reverse Proxy to redirect the authentication process to an EAI application. The EAI used in this lab is a simple Perl program test_sso.pl which performs a form-based login using user name and
password. Then, the EAI posts the user identity using HTTP headers to the check_user.pl program which is configured as a trigger URL. The Reverse Proxy uses the HTTP headers posted in the trigger URL to build user credential internally and grant access
to a protected resource.
