System Architecture

The SecurityServer is a standalone tool that integrates very easily into the system landscape via a SecurityServer java API. The diagram below shows the integration in B2B by Practice for single and multi-node systems.

Since the communication between these systems is asynchronously, sockets are created on every system. Therefore the configuration of each B2B node on the same physical server has to cope with blocked ports. The communication is done using an actor framework that is based on messages. These messages are executed via the SecurityServer API. From B2B by Practice this is transparent for administrators, because there are already services that implemented these calls. Multiple SecurityServers can be combined into a SecurityServer cluster.
