The Security Guide is intended for Access Manager administrators, designers, and implementers with several configuration guidelines. These guidelines can be used for enhancing the security of an Access Manager environment. The first half of the guide focuses on tasks for configuring the Access Manager components along with examples and references. The remaining part of the guide provides additional information about the important concepts described in prior sections.
It is recommended that the administrators frequently consult the product documentation (listed in “Other Information in the Library”), Access Manager TIDS, Cool Solutions, and keep up to date on patches and versions of both Access Manager and the host operating system.
