Before configuring your PingAccess deployment to protect a web application:


Protecting a web application involves:

  1. Configure a virtual host – A virtual host represents the external face of the site you will protect.
  2. Configure a site – A site contains the internal details of the site you will protect, including its actual location.
  3. Configure a web session – A web session defines the details of how user credential information is retained. This lets the token provider authenticate the user when it is required for a protected application.
  4. Configure a rule – Rules control who can access what content under what circumstances.
  5. Configure an identity mapping – An identity mapping lets you share identity information with the protected application as headers.
  6. Configure an application – An application joins the other pieces together, giving users access to the site according to the configured rules.
