This book is a step-by-step tutorial stuffed with practical, real-world examples. It is designed in such a way that if you are already familiar with OpenAM, you can easily skip to a later chapter without missing a beat. You should be able to quickly grasp the basic elements of OpenAM before moving on to the more advanced features and functionality. If you are a security architect or a solution developer responsible for the design and development of web-based enterprise applications that need to provide authentication, authorization, and audit facilities along with SSO capabilities, then this book is for you. You do not require any prior knowledge of OpenAM to read this book. Familiarity with Java will be helpful, but is not essential.
