IBM WebSEAL | Web Server | Tivoli Access Manager | Reverse Proxy

IBM WebSEAL is a powerful multithreaded web server that applies fine-grained security policies to the web object space protected by Tivoli Access Manager. It acts as a reverse proxy, forwarding requests from web clients to the appropriate back-end server and enforcing the security policies set by the Tivoli Access Manager administrator.

The web server is typically used to secure web-based applications and services and can integrate with a variety of authentication methods, including LDAP, Kerberos, and certificate-based authentication.

IBM WebSEAL enables a system administrator to apply fine-grained security policies to Web-based applications and services. This means that the administrator can control who has access to certain resources and under what conditions they can be accessed. For example, the administrator can require users to authenticate with a specific type of credentials (such as a username and password) before they are allowed to access certain resources, or can restrict access to specific IP addresses or geographic locations.

WebSEAL can be deployed in a variety of environments, including large enterprises, government agencies, and educational institutions. To use WebSEAL, an organization must have a valid license for the software, as well as the appropriate hardware and infrastructure.

BITS experts have used WebSEAL as well as related tools in a variety of projects. A selection of case studies and references can be found below.
