Credential caching and proxying
is a two-phase security approach that asks users
to enter their credentials once to access their secured web applications. By leveraging this
technology, users request access to the secured back-end web server. After that occurs, Access
Policy Manager creates a user session and collects the user identity based on the access policy.
When the access policy completes successfully, the user identity is saved (cached) in a session
database. Access Policy Manager subsequently reuses the cached identity to seamlessly log the
user into the secured web applications, thus providing the user with a single sign-on experience.
