I have just completed a new module for my updated WAS 8.5.5.x course and I thought that it was such an interesting topic that I would post segments about how to configure Federated Repositories using ApacheDS a s the LDAP Server. In this guide I have used CentOS 7, with WAS 8.5.5.x for Developers (No Charge Edition) and so you should be able to learn some fundamental insights into WebSphere Global Security. A new course on automating the installation and upgrade of WAS and manage security will be available in Q2 2015. One of the guides shows how to configure WAS 8.5.5.x for LDAP ie Global security.

The topics covered in this guide are as follows.
