Configuring ForgeRock® Identity Gateway

The Configuring ForgeRock® Identity Gateway course is for students who want to learn how to configure ForgeRock Identity Gateway (IG) to help extend access to and protect web applications, application programming interfaces (APIs), and devices and things within an access management solution.

This course comprises a mix of instructor-led lessons and demonstrations with plenty of lab exercises to ensure an opportunity to fully understand each of the topics covered. It provides students with the necessary skills to plan, install, configure, and administer an IG deployment. The main goal of the course is to provide a thorough understanding of and hands-on experience with IG, so students can control the most important functions of and manage a successful production deployment.

This course is built on version 5.5 of IG.

Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Describe the role and use cases where IG fits within a ForgeRock Identity Platform™ solution, basic concepts of IG, and how to perform a basic installation and configuration of IG
  • Describe advanced configuration topics and pre-configured default objects in the IG configuration and how to apply the knowledge when building an IG project
  • Use IG as a policy enforcement point (PEP) to protect a given web application, where ForgeRock® Access Management (AM) is the policy decision point (PDP)
  • Extend IG to support logout functionality and the retrieval of user profile attributes
  • Configure IG in the context of OAuth2 and OpenID Connect (OIDC)
  • Configure IG as a Service Provider (SP) in a SAML2 federation context
  • Plan the different phases of an IG project from high-level planning, detailed planning, and implementation
