Set up, enable and migrate security
You must address several issues prior to authenticating users, authorizing access to resources, securing applications, and securing communications. These security issues include migration, interoperability, and installation.
After installing WAS, we can determine the proper level of security that is needed for your environment. By default, administrative security is enabled and provides the authentication of users using the WebSphere administration functions, the use of SSL, and the choice of user account repository.
The following information is covered in this section:
- Determine if any migration and interoperability issues might affect the installation.
- Prepare your environment before and after installing WAS.
- Enable security for all the appservers or for specific appservers in the realm.
Next stepsAfter installing WAS and securing the environment, authenticate users. For more information, see Authenticate users.
