The document at how to integrate Novell's UserApp program with Novell's Access Manager server using the SAML protocol.

If the IDM User Application is installed, it is often in a larger context. One of the common requirements is to integrate User Application or specific parts into a portal, granting the users a single sign-on experience. Another common requirement is a strong authentication, e.g., via a certificate login to the portal.

Leveraging the power of Novell Access Manager and SAML, the solution described in this article makes true single sign-on capability available to any part of User Application, with any form of authentication method possible.

This document assumes that you are familiar with the Novell Access Manager configuration. If you are not, please refer to the Novell Access Manager documentation at
