Fedlet comes out with a (Head) Bang

OpenSSO is maturing at a rapid pace with a fantastic new feature addition released today, the Fedlet! Watch the video below to see the Instant federation for a partner in action with OpenSSO. This video is proof that federation can be fun (or at least that Daniel can make it fun).

I get involved in all types of identity discussions (provisioning, identity compliance, access management, federation, etc.) in my travels, recently (Tuesday), I had the opportunity to talk to Sun customers and potential customer about Federated Access Management at The Sun Identity Roadshow in Dallas. There was a lengthy Q&A after the session and some of the questions were related to asking when it will be easier to create federation agreements and enable smaller partners. I answered by describing the Federation configuration wizards in OpenSSO make configuration of federation simple, and the fedlet will make it easy to enable a partner to federate with you. The video above shows exactly how easy these tasks can be.

Project OpenPTK launched!

Project Open Provisioning ToolKit (OpenPTK) provides a bridge between Identity Solutions and specialized user interfaces or access points. It is hosted on the Identity Management community on java.net.

Project Open Provisioning ToolKit (OpenPTK) is an open source User Provisioning Toolkit exposing API's, Web Services, HTML Taglibs, JSR-168 Portlets with user self-service and administration examples. The architecture supports several pluggable back-end services including Sun's Identity Manager, Sun's Access Manager and LDAPv3.

Available now are several sample applications which demonstrate the features of the OpenPTK. These samples are preconfigured to connect to a hosted Identity Management infrastructure. This infrastructure includes Sun Identity Manager and it's SPML interface. The applications include:
  • User Management Lite - a sample java web application which provides simple User Management in a remote interface, user self service, and user registration / forgotten password services. This leverages the OpenPTK's provisioning tag library.
  • Provisioning Web Service - This JAX-RPC web service provides the a .wsdl interface to define specific user management tasks. This leverages the OpenPTK's java api.
  • OpenPTK Command line interface - this provides a command line interface to access a remote provisioning infrastructure . This leverages the OpenPTK's java api.
  • Coming soon: JSR 168 Portlets for User Admnistration, Self Service, and Forgotten Password services. This leverages the OpenPTK's provisioning tag library and the java api.

Coming soon will be documentation to deploy these sample applications to connect to your Identity infrastructure, followed closely by full access to the source code for the OpenPTK framework.

This project was started last year by 3 Sun Systems Engineers (Scott Fehrman, Terry Sigle, and myself) to demonstrate the power and flexibility of Sun's Identity Management suite of products in new and flexible ways. Due to the demand and flexibility of the solution, this open source project was launched to enable others to extend the value of their Identity Management infrastructures. It is designed to be completely complementary to existing deployments of Identity Management infrastructures.
