Portals provide a personalized single point of access to applications, content, people and processes through a Web interface. They also provide underlying services for these applications, such as security, search, collaboration and workflow.

This IBM Redbook will focus on the security aspect of Portal’s single access point. It is intended to help IT architects, IT specialists, security architects and security administrators understand and implement portal security using a secure portal solution. This solution will be built on WebSphere Portal Server V5.0.1 and Tivoli Access Manager V4.1.

The secure portal is designed to be a portal application that is integrated to a centralized security access manager. Both client authentication and page/portlet authorization will be managed in this one central repository.
