Product Description

Sterling External Authentication Server enhances the security of IBM® Sterling Secure Proxy and IBM Sterling Connect:Direct® Secure Plus.

For example, Sterling External Authentication Server can extract data from the certificate chain and use the CV definition to connect to an LDAP server. It then can validate the certificate subject and determine that a digital certificate has not been revoked. Sterling External Authentication Server uses authentication definitions to authenticate and authorize users. After receiving an authentication or authorization request, Sterling External Authentication Server can access an LDAP directory to determine that a user ID and password are valid to access a destination service or application.
