I am aware that Cisco Unity 8.x has a SSO checklist that requires:
- Cisco Unity
- MS AD on Win2003/8
- Open AM
- Apache Tomcat 7.0
We already have a single sign-on solution at our organization that uses the Novell Access Manager (NAM). Would we be able to do Federated solution between another SSO product and the OpenAM on the Cisco Unity product. In this architecture all we will do is setup Open AM as Service Provider (SP) fronting the Cisco Unity Apps and then do a SAML 2.0 protocol with an Identity Provider (IdP) which would the NAM.
The idea is that we have single Identity Provider (IdP). I have a difficult time understanding why setting up SSO for Cisco Unity app requires installing a full suite of OpenAM SSO. I imagine most companies have their SSO solutions that have been implemented using products such as Oracle AM, Tivoli etc and all they would need to do is federate with the Cisco App, instead of of setting up a parallel SSO suite.
Thanks in advance!
