Goal

How to accomplish Oracle Access Manager 11g r1 (OAM11.1.1.5) x509 fallback authentication

There is no OOB solution for x509 fallback authentication

Support/BDE/SE have no certified/supported solution/step by step documentation on how to accomplish this.

Enhancement Request <BUG:14828896> NEED X509 FALLBACK AUTHENTICATION OOB,  was filed for this, but closed as a duplicate of <Bug:14687932> - CHAINED AUTHENTICATION SUPPORT FOR OOB PLUGINS.

There are some theoretical paths that can be followed, but how or if they will work have not been documented, ie...

a. Custom Plugin... <Note: 1386478.1> OAM 11g: If primary authentication fails how to revert to another authentication

b. Failure URL… that points to a resource protected by another authentication scheme Known issues/limitations … <Note: 1452035.1> Redirect To Custom Page From Custom OAM 11g Authentication Plug-In

c. In OAM 11gr2 11.1.2, there may be more ways to possible accomplish this with respect to Multi-factor Authentication:http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E27559_01/admin.1112/e27239/register.htm#CHDJCBAE

To find a solution to fit your needs would require resources outside of Support, like Oracle consulting.
