Issue/Introduction



One application is looking for a Step-up authentication every time an user access back a dedicated URI in the same application. It is just one URL but different URIs.

Environment

Version: any

Resolution

SiteMinder can prompt a user the first time they access a part of an application protected by a higher level auth scheme and the users existing session is at a lower level auth - but as long as that session is valid after stepping up, they would not be prompted again.
