  • An understanding of identity and access management (IAM)


  • System administrators

OpenAM is an open source identity and access management server platform that features federation and single sign-on (SSO) services. It also provides APIs (Java, C and RESTful) that enable developers to access and integrate authentication, authorization, and identity services to web applications.

This instructor-led, live training (online or onsite) is aimed at system administrators and developers who wish to use OpenAM to manage identity and access controls for web applications.

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Set up the necessary server environment to start configuring authentication and access controls using OpenAM.
  • Implement single sign-on (SSO), multi-factor authentication (MFA), and user self-service features for web applications.
  • Use federation services (OAuth 2.0, OpenID, SAML v2.0, etc.) to extend identity management securely across different systems or applications.
  • Access and manage authentication, authorization, and identity services through REST APIs.

Format of the Course

  • Interactive lecture and discussion.
  • Lots of exercises and practice.
  • Hands-on implementation in a live-lab environment.
