Hi,

I am not quite sure what document you are looking for, where did you find the reference to such a document?

We do have Guides for the Authentication Service itself (e.g. API, SOAP, WSDL etc.), Guides for deploying VIP, Guides for Installing and Configuring VIP Enterprise Gateway, and so on and so forth...

Let me know, what you are looking for, and I will point you to the right place.

Kind regards, Matthias

I downloaded https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/sites/defa...

, Inside the zip, there is a pdf: VIPAuthOverview.pdf, on chapter 2, the last section, deployment, it mentioned this document.

most of all, I would like to know how existing 1st factor authentication service is integrated with 2nd factor by VIP cloud service, specifically how OAM works with VIP.

I checked and see the document you are referring has been updated. Please log on to your VIP Manager Trial Account and go to the download files section / General Documentation. Here you will find an updated verions of the VIPAuthOverview document and the VIP Enterprise Authentication Deployment Guide, which replaces the VIP AS Admin Guide.

Don't have a trial account? go.symantec.com/viptrial

How does VIP integrate with OAM? Let me know how your current authentication scheme looks like and I can tell you what options you will have.

Kinde regards.

our 1st factor authentication is done through OAM, which consumes a SAML assertion sent from a federation service. So in summary, we do not have user 1st factor credential.

So I am wondering how VIP takes over to authenticate the 2nd factor after 1st factor through OAM. Will VIP user service fully take over 2nd factor registration and also authentication without us managing the mapping between local user id with 2nd factor credential id? Is VIP user service a cloud service?

In that case VIP will integrate with your federation service. The user registration and credential mapping will - depending on the setup of your federation service - be done by the federation service itself or some enterprise directory back-end (e.g. LDAP). In case it is a cloud based federation service chances are high VIP is already integrated.

VIP itself is a cloud service, storing only a minimum of PII in the cloud, meaning a UserID or a hashed reference.

If you want to discuss offline, let me know.
