3.3.2 WebSEAL (PDWeb)
Access Manager WebSEAL is a security manager for Web-based resources.
WebSEAL is a high-performance, multi-threaded Web server that applies
fine-grained security policy to the protected Web object space. WebSEAL can
provide single sign-on solutions and incorporate back-end Web application
server resources into its security policy.
As shown in Figure 3-3, WebSEAL runs on top of the Web Security Runtime
component. Like the other components, WebSEAL can be configured using the
pdconfig utility. In addition the configuration tool amwebcfg can be used for
configuration or unconfiguration of a WebSEAL server.
