Upcoming z/VM KVM for z Systems Linux on z Systems z/VSE

General Information
IBM offers education on a variety of z/VM, Linux on z Systems, KVM for z Systems and z/VSE topics in the form of "Live Virtual Classes" (LVC). The day of the LVC broadcast, you can see the charts and listen to the speaker "live". In addition, you are able (and are encouraged) to ask questions of the speaker during a Q&A session following the prepared presentation. Please register for the section you wish to attend. Each LVC lasts approximately one hour, including Q&A.

The day following each LVC, we plan to post the the charts here in PDF format. Shortly thereafter we plan to provide a replay where you can read the charts, hear the recording and the Q&As. You are welcome to read the charts or listen to the playbacks when you can't participate 'live' or even if you wish to hear it all again.

Topic: An integrated Single Sign-On Solution with Linux on z Systems, z/OS, and Microsoft Active Directory
Speaker: Marc Beyerle, IBM Mainframe Specialist, Senior Java Performance Engineer IBM Germany
Abstract: In spring 2016, the Client Center Boeblingen performed a complex Proof-of-Concept for a large European bank. One of the primary goals of this project was to realize a fully integrated Single Sign-On (SSO) solution with WebSphere Application Server running on Linux on z Systemsn CICS Transaction Server on z/OS, and Microsoft Active Directory. Besides the SSO requirement, another major goal of this PoC was to demonstrate t the client that this setup is able to provide a full audit trail for their transactions - with User IDs flowing all the way from the WebSphere-based front-end to CICS Transaction Server and z/OS RACF in th back-end. This session will highlight the architecture of this solution, the different technologies included, and how they were integrated in order to address the client's specific needs.
