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 which performs a form-based login using user name and password. Then, the EAI posts the user identity using HTTP headers to the 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.


In this lab, you configure HTTP transformation rules in IBM Security Access Manager (ISAM) to modify HTTP requests and responses passing through the Reverse Proxy junctions.
