IBM will no longer host IBM Security Verify containers on Docker Hub after December 31st, 2022
All containers should be sourced from the IBM Cloud Container Registry, see Software Downloads > Containers for more information.
This may be a breaking change to any automated deployment processes.
The IBM Application Gateway (IAG) provides a containerized secure Web Reverse proxy which is designed to sit in front of your application, seamlessly adding authentication and authorization protection to your application.
Defining the Environment
At a high level, when starting the IAG container you need to define:
- The identity source for the environment. The container is able to protect applications by acting as an OIDC Relying Party, and protect API's using OAuth token introspection;
- The applications which are to be protected. For each application you might potentially need to define:
- The Web servers which host the application;
- The authorization policy for the application resources;
- Any rate limiting rules to help manage access to the application;
- Any transformations which should take place on either the HTTP request or response.
The specific documentation which will assist in getting you started includes:
- IAG Overview
- IAG Concepts, specifically:
- How to deploy the container into different container environments, for example:
- Example YAML configuration files, for example:
