BIG-IP system forward proxy chaining and APM benefits

The BIG-IP system supports forward proxy chaining which enables connection to a next hop proxy server. Access Policy Manager (APM®) brings these abilities to forward proxy chaining:
  • Offload authentication from and support authentication to the next hop on the client's behalf.
  • Support single sign-on to the next hop and to resources at the next hop.
  • Select different proxy servers for different requests.
  • Select different SSO configurations for different requests.
