Authentication Module and Authentication  Chain in OpenAM are one of its most striking features.

In this article is exposed, how to provide a step-by-step testing approach to validate a realm using an an authentication chain and module.

1. Authentication Module

openAM provides out of the box 24 authentication module types
The scope of authentication module can be a given realm

2. Authentication Module Test

When creating an authentication module, it is good practice to test that the realm can be authenticated using the module considered

The way to test it is:

  • <hostname>:port/openam?realm=<realm_name>&module=<module-name>
3. Authentication Chain

An Authentication Chain is made up of authentication modules.
For each authentication module part of the authentication chain, shall be indicated the status  (sufficient, requisite, required)

  • Sufficient
  • Requisite
  • Required
4. Authentication chain test

The way to test it is:

  • <hostname>:port/openam?realm=<realm_name>&service=<authentication-chain>
5. Realm test when using authentication chain

You should first configure the default authentication chain for the considered realm.

Once done, the way to test it is:

The way to test it is:

  • <hostname>:port/openam?realm=<realm_name>
