TAI - Trusted Association Interceptor for Websphere


Hi all!

I use TAI module, from Novell (version 0.0-59 from 18 Jul 2008), to
pass user credentials to Websphere Application Server ('click to view
documentation'
(http://www.novell.com/documentation/novellaccessmanager31/agentshelp/data/b7wwlp0.html#bpydrec)).
Before you ask I can't use J2EE native client because the Websphere is
running at HPUX operating system 😉

As I saw in Websphere trace and systemout logs, the problem is happen
because secret-value is null. I'd like to know if there are a newer
version of this TAI module and if someone had developed a custom TAI
module, using JASS ans Websphere APIs.

Thank you so much!

You have to make sure that the secret-value is being passed on from
Access Manager to WebSphere. This is a shared-secret type configuration.
So, configure a custom header injection with a static string. Next, put
the header name into the "Secret-Header" configuration parameter of the
TAI and the header content (the static string) into the "Secret-Value"
configuration parameter.
