Configuring Oracle Unified Directory as an Identity Store for Access Manager 11gR2 (11.1.2)

Hi all, Mike here. Today I'm writing about configuring and using OUD as a data source for OAM to store our identities.   First, we need to configure the directory instance to prepare it for OAM.

It will ask for entry & re-entry of the desired password ...

It’s Been a While, RISE and 2-Way (Client Authenticated) SSL

It's been a while since we were back at the blog.  I wish we had a better excuse but to be honest we've been packed with client work.  Everything from leading a few large identity and access projects to building some custom mobile applications.  More on the latter in a few weeks.
