OpenEdge Authentication Gateway

The OpenEdge Authentication Gateway is a key component of a centralized authentication and authorization service for database connections. It is an implementation of a Security Token Service (STS) that creates and seals the client-principal tokens that are passed to a web server for single sign-ons.
It is supported by other OpenEdge components, including:
*Utilities to configure OpenEdge databases to access OpenEdge Authentication Gateway services
*Tools to maintain and monitor OpenEdge database activity when using the Authentication Gateway
*ABL functions, handle attributes and methods, and class properties that support OpenEdge Authentication Gateway services
Note: In addition to ABL database connections, the OpenEdge Authentication Gateway also supports authentication for SQL database connections.
The Authentication Gateway is a secured Progress Application Server (PAS) for OpenEdge instance where the OESTS web application (oests.war) is deployed. The Authentication Gateway requires domain configuration and access to an authentication provider (for example: OS Local, LDAP, Active Directory, etc.) to be able to create and seal client-principal tokens.
