SHLIBERTY : Liberty Alliance

With Identity Management, Federation etc being the buzzwords of this gen, I believed that having a strong open source federated identity platform to develop from would be a great gift. First it was Andre Durand with SourceID. and now, Steven Carmody, The "Mr. Shibboleth Of All" gave an introductory presentation on Shibboleth, an inter-institutional approach to federated authentication. Shibboleth targeted at the eduction sector is showcased on internet2. Mr. Carmody also pointed out that Shibboleth is poised for a real wide-scale adoption. NSF would be adopting Shibboleth for its fastlane service on July 30th as part of the United States Government's e-Authentication initiative. Shibboleth is Internet2's access control architecture which complements cas. Renee Woodten Frost, Internet2's Associate Director of Middleware and Security, provided an introduction to Shibboleth, during the Midwest Regional Conference. Then there's Guanxi, the JAVA implementation of the SAML Spec and complies with the Shibboleth Profile extensions developed as part of an Internet2 project. The next release os CAS may use Shibboleth. I shall be following developments on both CAS and Shibboleth. It would be nice if you folks contributed to information gathered on this topic by commenting on this post, as it would make aggregation of the subject matter easier. I shall keep you posted on this forefront as I keep learning more. Cheers for now. UPDATE: Please Read my post on Federated Security: A Shibboleth Approach
