Writing a Network Security plug-in

ZIETrans provides a Network Security plug-in for Tivoli® Access Manager. If you decide not to use these plug-ins, you can create your own.

The function of the Network Security plug-in is to acquire the user's network ID, which can be gleaned from the HTTP header that is found on the incoming HTTP request object. The details of how to acquire the network ID are specific to your network security application. Refer to your network security application's documentation for more information.
