Symptoms

You are running web applications using the Oracle Containers for J2EE (OC4J) component of Oracle Application Server 9.0.4.x or 10.1.2.x and have these applications and other applications (such as Oracle Portal) secured using Oracle Single Sign On (SSO).

When you invoke the SSO "global logout" mechanism, you are successfully logged out from other applications such as Portal and a user seeking to access portal pages requiring security is immediately asked to re-authenticate via single sign on. However, after "global logout" users are still able to access secured pages for your custom web applications without being redirected to the SSO login page.
