Integrating (ForgeRock) LDAP with MuleSoft

Introduction We continue exploring MuleSoft software and we wanted to know, how easy it is to integrate an LDAP Directory that is not documented by MuleSoft at the moment. It should be easy, right? It is just the same LDAP protocol. We gave a try to ForgeRock (OpenDJ). You can find a short intro to the MuleSoft platform in our previous blog. So in below article you will see what you need to do to connect MuleSoft Anypoint studio, using LDAP connector, with ForgeRock OpenDJ ldap server, what you need…

I am going to show how to integrate two impressive technologies: 1. Sencha Web Application Manager (SWAM), that is an application platform for deploying and managing web and mobile apps and 2. ForgeRock OpenDJ open-source LDAP directory server. Sencha SWAM is an enterprise software product for deploying and managing HTML 5 applications, which are accessible from Windows Desktop, iOS, Android and Windows Phone clients. Most of today's enterprises use web and mobile applications to support their business. Deployment and management of these apps easily becomes a nightmare, when considering the number of browsers, desktop…

SeaFile Storage authentication via ForgeRock OpenDJ

Welcome to this blog post. I will describe and explain how to set up own storage with file synchronization across multiple computers and platforms. Having a distributed and safe file storage is a fundamental requirement for enterprises of all sizes small, medium size or big. Seafile is nice in that it allows you to scale from small to big over time. The goal of my project was to set-up an internal storage system that will serve tens of users. All of them should be able to share their files via the storage safely and…

profiq just announeced strategic partnership with ForgeRock for system integration of open-source and standard-based Access and Identity Management (IAM) products. This is a fundamental milestone in fulfilling profiq's system integration and system testing strategy. We have spent the last 8+ years with deploying and testing ForgeRock products and their predecessors and looking forward to offering an extended service to customers in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary with ForgeRock.

A simple OpenAM realm scenario

A Realm is an OpenAM concept and a feature which is used to group and organise the information and configuration parameters. OpenAM has a top level realm which contains all other, user-defined, realms. We will try here to demonstrate the realm functionality on a simple but practical scenario where realms will be used to separate administration entities. Let's imagine a hypothetical service provider company (Example.com) which has a centralised directory for all of it’s clients, and a separate branch per client: suffix: dc=example,dc=com Client1: o=client1,dc=example,dc=com Client2: o=client2,dc=example,dc=com Example.com would like to…

This is the first article in the series where we would like to focus on the integration of Red Hat Certificate System (RHCS) and ForgeRock OpenDJ. We will start with the simplest use case - using OpenDJ as a publishing directory for RHCS Certificate Authority (CA). When you are running a Certificate Authority, the certificates have to be published typically in a LDAP directory which stores user information. The scenario would be: the company has a corporate LDAP directory running on OpenDJ which stores the information about the employee and…

How to upgrade OpenAM

In my previous articles [1] and [2] I explained how to install simple OpenAM architecture. Now I wrote one more article related to this architecture. This article provides detailed steps how to do an upgrade of this architecture from OpenAM 9.0 to OpenAM 9.5.4. (more…)

How to deploy OpenAM with DAUI using SSL

In my previous article "How to deploy OpenAM with DAUI"  I wrote down steps how to install complete architecture where DAUI is configured with OpenAM. To keep it simple, I used only plain non-encrypted communication between individual components, however in the real world, many deployments require some more security and encrypted cryptography is a basic requirement. This article is based on previous one and it adds steps to install full architecture with SSL encryption. (more…)

How to deploy OpenAM with DAUI

Internet is full of tutorials and steps how to install and configure individual tools, but sometimes there are required steps to connect these tutorials together. Sure, there are some deployment guides for complex architectures, but they are typically very complex. The goal of this article is to provide complete, but simple steps how to install and configure ForgeRock's OpenAM access manager and DAUI (Distributed Authentication User Interface) for authentication. This solution uses also ForgeRock's OpenDJ directory server as configuration and user data store. (more…)
