Oracle Access Manager

With 11gR2, Oracle Access Manager has grown into a common platform that provides a myriad of authentication (and authorization) services that can help enterprise with
  1. Web Single Sign On (Access Manager) - primarily a technology that allows user to access different applications after single login. This typically reduces the number of id and password that user has to remember and also provides a more seamless user experience as user transitions from one web application to another within the enterprise as part of their daily work by reducing the login they need to perform on each application.
  2. Federated Single Sign On (Identity Federation) - is the core technology based on standards like SAML, OpenID, OAuth, etc, that allows end user to login to a site using their identity on another site. For example you can use google identity to login to stackoverflow.
  3. Access Control (Access Manager, OAuth) - is a technology is geared towards ensuring that resources (specifically the web resources in context of OAM) are available to user if and only if they are authorized through one or more policy
  4. Token Service (Security Token Service) - is a standard service that can be used to translate a token (e.g. Kerberos, SAML, OAuth) from one form to another 
  5. REST Based API for identity management (Mobile and Social) - allows applications to manage users in directory through simple interface. Please note that at this time this is a proprietary interface and not based on a standard like SCIM
  6. Mobile Authentication and Authorization (Mobile and Social) - allows mobile applications to use pre-packaged libraries to manage identification and strong authentication capabilities.
