Oracle Enterprise Single Sign-on (ESSO) tips

Expert Oracle Database Tips by Donald BurlesonDecember 11, 2015

Question:  That is the new Enterprise version of single sign-on, and how is ESSO different from the regular SSO architecture?

Answer:  Oracle Enterprise Single Sign-on (ESSO) is a new way of single password management for Oracle database, Oracle applications (eBusiness suite), operating systems.

ESSO is a complete replacement for the obsolete SSO used by the older Oracle Applications.

The ESSO package was purchased from Passlogix, is part of Oracle's Identity Management Suite (IMS), and an integral part of Oracle's Oracle identity management now covers all areas of Oracle user security including regulatory compliance (HIPAA, GLB, SOX) and reduces management costs of providing a single source for user identity management.

Similar in functionality to the RACF single sign-on tool from the 20th century IBM mainframes, ESSO creates a single place for user log-in's, one place to manage connections to all systems, and the end-user only has to remember a single password.

ESSO is driver via a GUI that replaces the sign-on requirements for the Oracle Database, the Application Server layer (WebLogic), and offers password centralization for many hardware environments, all the way from Windows servers to IBM mainframes.

The ESSO GUI is easily installed and it can be configured using the wizard steps in less than an hour.

To test ESSO in a development environment you can download a non-production copy of ESSO for testing.
