Is Oracle Access Protocol (OAP) over REST supported with OAM 11g WebGate for Apache ?

Oracle Access Protocol (OAP) over REST- New feature for OAM Server and Webgate

It enables the use of HTTP(S) infrastructure to route and load balance requests. Changing the transport mechanism between WebGate and server has a beneficial impact.

OAP provides an additional layer of security by encrypting, by default the messages sent to the server using RESTPayloadEncryption.

To support HTTP(S) communication, OAM server uses the following:

REST endpoint as server filter deployed on managed server /iam/access/binding/api/v10/oap.
Work Manager components. See Configuring Work Manager for OAP over REST

With this release of Oracle Access Management, OAP over REST is the default way of communication. Whenever you create an SSO agent, the following additional parameters are set, by default.

OAMRestEndPointHostName=<OAM_SERVER>, OAMRestEndPointPort=<HTTP_SSL_PORT>, and OAMServerCommunicationMode=HTTPS
