Siteminder - Adding authentication to applications
Applications can be protected with SiteMinder by installing and configuring a SiteMinder agent on the application server.
When an application is protected by a SiteMinder agent, it will require the user to authenticate before accessing the protected application. SiteMinder will also identify the authenticated user to the protected application. This identification occurs by providing HTTP headers that can be read by the protected application.
