Getting Started with Oracle Access Manager (OAM) WebGate

Oracle Access Manager, or OAM for short, is a system that allows you to allow or deny users access to resources. In other words, OAM is the authorization part of AAA (authentication, authorization, accounting).

As an example, let's say only certain users should be permitted to access When navigating to, users can be presented with a basic authentication form. After the user provides a valid username and password (authentication), the user can either be allowed or denied access to (authorization). In this example, the user was denied access (not authorized).
