Understanding single sign-on (SSO) between IBM Lotus Domino and IBM WebSphere Portal

This white paper provides an in-depth explanation of how the single
sign-on (SSO) feature works between IBM Lotus Domino and IBM WebSphere Portal.
Learn the basics of how cookies are written to―and used in―Internet browsers,
how the cookies are used to enable SSO, and exactly what is in the token and
why it’s needed for SSO between two servers. Included are specific details of
where the WebSphere Portal and Lotus Domino servers configure each part of the
cookie used for SSO, the LTPAToken. Editor’s Note: This white paper is the
first in a three-part series on SSO to be published over the next few months.
See the second paper, “Configuring single sign-on (SSO) between IBM WebSphere
Portal and IBM Lotus Domino.”
