Authentication in an OBIEE context.

A user is authenticated if the USER system variable is set. Then an init block can authenticate a user.

The goal of the authentication configuration is to get a confirmation of the identity of a user based on the credentials provided.

In OBIEE, the credentials provided are hold in this two variables:

In 10g, the authentication process is managed by the BI Server, 11g, the authentication process is managed by the weblogic server.



OBIEE 10G - Authentication

Login/Authentication Process between Oracle BI Server and Oracle BI Presentation Services

The Oracle BI Server and Oracle BI Presentation Services client support industry-standard security for login and password encryption.

When an end user enters a login and password in the Web browser, the Oracle BI Server uses the Hyper Text Transport Protocol Secure (HTTPS) standard to send the information to a secure port on the Oracle BI Presentation Services.

From the Oracle BI Presentation Services, the information is passed through ODBC to the Oracle BI Server, using Triple DES (Data Encryption Standard). This provides a high level of security (168 bit), preventing unauthorized users from accessing data or Oracle BI metadata.
