DEPLOYMENT GUIDE

Oracle Access Manager (BIG-IP v11: APM)

This F5 deployment guide describes how to configure the BIG-IP APM for Oracle Access Manager when you are looking to offload the WebGate functionality. This simplifies the OAM deployment by eliminating WebGate Agents from the application servers and consolidating the proxy layer onto the network infrastructure.

In this deployment guide, we demonstrate an architecture where Oracle Access Manager provides authorization services to an application. Allowing BIG-IP APM to offload the 10g WebGate functionality simplifies the Oracle OAM deployment by eliminating WebGate Agents from the application servers and consolidating the proxy layer onto the network infrastructure.

The BIG-IP system is first configured to provide access to the application. Once this configuration is completed and tested, the addition of OAM functionality is then added to provide restricted access to the application. The APM module functions as a WebGate which connects to the OAM server and enforces web access policies that have been defined by the OAM administrator.

The following diagram shows the logical configuration example described in the deployment guide after the BIG-IP APM has been implemented.
