Chapter 1. Identity Management Overview

The basics behind identity management and identity stores are covered in the Single Sign On (SSO) section of the Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 Security Architecture guide document. These concepts can also be applied to providing security for the JBoss EAP 6 management interfaces and web applications outside of SSO. More specifically, this document covers configuring different identity stores for identity management in JBoss EAP 6 for securing the management interfaces (LDAP) as well with security domains (LDAP, Database, and Filesystem).
