ForgeRock Identity Gateway Core Concepts

ForgeRock Identity Gateway Core Concepts - IG-400

The ForgeRock® Identity Gateway Core Concepts course is for students who want to examine core concepts and implement key use cases and features of ForgeRock Identity Gateway (IG) to help extend access to and protect web applications, legacy applications, and application programming interfaces (APIs), 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.

Note that Revision B of this course is built on version 6.5 of ForgeRock Identity Gateway.
