Information in this document applies to any platform.
Oracle Access Manager 10.1.4.x Integrated Windows Authentication ( IWA )
Oracle Access Manager 11.1.1.x Windows Native Authentication ( WNA )
This feature is called Integrated Windows Authentication ( IWA ) in OAM 10.1.4 and Windows Native Authentication ( WNA ) in OAM 11.1.1.x.
The basic concept for both implementations is to configure OAM to trust the Windows Domain Authentication. This means users authenticated to a Windows Domain are not challenged again when accessing an OAM protected resource.
Information about prerequisites for IWA and WNA could be found in the OAM documentation:
