IssueHow to set up Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA) mode for RSA ClearTrust protected resource
When setting up Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA) mode for an RSA ClearTrust protected web site, the authentication process is successful, but the browser remains presenting the ct_home.asp screen, rather than providing automatic redirection to the contents of the protected resource
CauseMicrosoft Internet Explorer for the sites zone is configured for "high" security which excludes redirection using the META refresh
ResolutionIn Microsoft Internet Explorer, select the Tools menu, click Internet Options, and select the Security tab. There are 4 categories of security settings: Internet, Local Intranet, Trusted Sites, Restricted Sites. If there is a requirement for the security level to be high, rather than medium, then customize the high security level so that the particular flag "allow meta refresh" is enabled. Within the ct_home.asp source code, the redirection invocation uses meta refresh entry as follows:

    <META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" CONTENT="0;url=<%redirectURL.toString()%>">
