Layer7 SiteMinder Integration Guide Overview

Warning: Pivotal Single Sign-On v1.11 is no longer supported because it has reached the End of General Support (EOGS) phase as defined by the Support Lifecycle Policy. To stay up to date with the latest software and security updates, upgrade to a supported version.

Layer7 SiteMinder (formally known as CA Single Sign-On) is a Web Access Management system that supports advanced authentication, risk-based security policies, and federated identities. This documentation describes how to configure a single sign-on partnership between Layer7 SiteMinder as the identity provider and the Pivotal Single Sign‑On as the service provider.

Single Sign‑On supports service provider-initiated authentication flow and single logout. It does not support identity provider-initiated authentication flow. All Single Sign‑On communication takes place over SSL.


To integrate Layer7 SiteMinder with Single Sign‑On you must have the following:

  • Layer7 SiteMinder v12.52 or later
  • A certificate signed by a certificate authority

Note: To configure SAML, you must have the Pivotal Single Sign-On service broker installed on your PCF deployment. You need to create a plan, grant any plan administrators, and specify any organizations this plan should be the authentication authority for. For help configuring plans, see the Manage Service Plans topic.
