How Applications Use Siteminder
How do applications use siteminder?
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.
