– During the upgrade, they will not get the new features on the custom application or get the changes.
- Copying the application will increase the size of the database.

What are the different types of authentication and their use?
Ans: Siebel Systems has developed an open authentication architecture that integrates with a customer’s selected authentication infrastructure. Siebel Systems supports three primary types of authentication:
Native database authentication
For employee applications, Siebel Systems provides internal mechanisms for credential collection and verification. The default login form collects Siebel username and password credentials. The underlying security systems of the database verify users’ credentials. 

Security Adapters for External Authentication
For employee or customer applications, Siebel Systems includes a preconfigured security adapter interface to allow organizations to externalize credential verification. The interface connects to a security adapter, which contains the logic to validate credentials to a specific authentication service.
Siebel Systems customers can therefore verify user credentials with security standards such as Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) or Active Directory Services Interface (ADSI).

Web Single Sign-On
Siebel Systems offers customers the capability to enable a single login across multiple Web applications—also known as Web Single Sign-On (SSO). Siebel Systems provides a configurable mechanism for communicating with Web SSO infrastructures, identifying users, and logging users into Siebel applications.
With Web SSO, users are authenticated independently of Siebel applications, such as through a third-party authentication service, or through the Web server.
