Bulk Federation

I have just completed the implementation for bulk federation. The code is under review now. Here is an abstract of a paper that I have written with the help of my co-workers
A typical process of federating a user between an identity provider and a
service provider is

   1. The user authenticates to his service provider;

   2. He/she chooses an identity provider and authenticates with it.

    Once this is done, a name identifier is created and it is used to
identify this user in both providers. Both providers keep this name identifier
in the user's profiles to make the federation non transient. This name
identifier is removed from the user's profiles when defederation happens.
In this paper, we describe two sub commands in Command Line tool that
helps an organization to federate users between an identity provider (IDP) and
a service provider (SP) on their behalf.

Open Federation

We have just open sourced the Federation and Web Services code base under the OpenSSO project. As of today, OpenSSO has the following products
  • Access Manager
  • Open Federation
  • J2EE Agents for Sun Application Server 8.x
  • Web Agents for Apache Server

The nightly builds for Open Federation are at http://download.java.net/general/opensso/nightly/openfm/ and http://download.java.net/general/opensso/nightly/fedlibrary/

Note: You may need to get more jar files into opensso/products/extlib after you sync up your workspace with OpenSSO CVS and after building your workspace. Please read the README under opensso/products directory.
