  39. 39. How Single Sign-On Works with EBS SSO Security Token User E-Business Suite EBS Application Server • Step 8: User is redirected to E-Business Suite, which accepts the SSO security token as proof of an authenticated user
  40. 40. How Single Sign-On Works with EBS E-Business Suite Application Server E-Business Suite EBS Database (FND_USER) • Step 9: E-Business Suite’s application server checks the user’s authorization (i.e Apps responsibilities) in FND_USER
  41. 41. How Single Sign-On Works with EBS Apps Security Token User E-Business Suite Application Server E-Business Suite Database • Step 10: E-Business Suite issues its own Apps security tokens to the user, redirecting her to the requested Apps module

  43. 43. Oracle Internet Directory Integration DBMS_LDAP Oracle E-Business Suite Internet FND_USER Directory DIP • Oracle Internet Directory and FND_USER must be kept synchronised • Supported synchronisation directions: • From OID to FND_USER (Asynchronous via the Directory Integration & Provisioning Platform) • From FND_USER to OID (Synchronous via dbms_ldap calls) • Bidirectionally • Synchronisation events are raised via the Workflow-based Business Event System whenever users are added or modified
  44. 44. Link Accounts Oracle E-Business Internet Suite Directory (FND_USER) Userid = “Link Account” Userid = “John.Smith” Global Unique Identifier (GUID) “jsmith” One-time User Registration • Done at setup time by system administrator • Optional: can be done by end-user on first logon (“Link on the fly”) • Useful when existing accounts in Oracle Internet Directory 10g or a third- party LDAP directory differ from existing E-Business Suite accounts
  45. 45. Link to Multiple EBS Accounts E-Business Oracle Suite Internet (FND_USER) Directory Userid = “Link Account” Userid = “John.Smith” “jsmith” Userid = “testuser1” Userid = “testuser2” • Note: It’s not possible to link multiple OID accounts to the same EBS account

  51. 51. Passwords Stored in Third-Party LDAP Third-Party Oracle E-Business LDAP Internet Database (optional) Directory (FND_USER) User Password X User Password X User Password • Third-party LDAP: • Handles user authentication, usually with a third-party authentication solution • Commonly considered “Master” source-of-truth • Oracle Internet Directory and E-Business Suite take minimal copies of master user definition -- excluding passwords • E-Business Suite doesn’t maintain user passwords in this configuration

  53. 53. Third-Party Integration Architecture Third-Party LDAP Oracle Third-Party Internet SSO Directory 10g EBS Database (FND_USER) End User Single Sign-On 10g EBS Application Server
  54. 54. User Logs onto Third-Party System Third-Party SSO • Step 1. User provides userid & password to third- party single sign-on system
  55. 55. Third-Party Authenticates User Third-Party LDAP Third-Party SSO • Step 2. Third-party single sign-on sends user’s credentials to third-party LDAP for authentication
  56. 56. Third-Party Grants User Access Third-Party Token Third-Party SSO • Step 3. Third-party single sign-on provides authenticated user with third-party security token
  57. 57. Logged-On User Attempts EBS Access Single Sign-On 10g E-Business Suite • Step 4. User attempts to access E-Business Suite, and is redirected to Oracle Single Sign-On 10g
  58. 58. Oracle SSO Grants User Access SSO Security Token Single Sign-On 10g • Step 5. Oracle Single Sign-On recognizes the third- party security token, then issues its own
  59. 59. EBS Grants User Access Single Apps Sign-On 10g Security Token E-Business Suite • Step 6. User is redirected back to E-Business Suite, which recognizes the SSO security token and issues its own
