OPSS provides an abstraction layer in the form of standards-based application programming interfaces (APIs) that insulates developers from security and identity management implementation details.
With OPSS, developers don't need to know the details of cryptographic key management or interfaces with user repositories and other identity management infrastructures.
With OPSS, in-house developed applications, third-party applications, and integrated applications all benefit from the same uniform security, identity management, and audit services across the enterprise. OPSS is available as part of WebLogic Server.
- credentials — encrypted passwords for database and other connections used by the data controls in your application
- identities — users who are allowed to use the application and the roles to which they belong
- policies — grants that affect which roles are allow to perform certain operations in your application
