OpenSSO Fedlet Wins European Identity Award


Fedlet started out as "SAML2 lightweight SDK" 2 years ago with a small prototype with a UI to show levels of integration points. I recall Jamie demonstrating the prototype to customers in Canada and the surprisingly strong positive reactions it got. Congratulations to the Sun Federation team for productizing this into the neat concept it is today, to our friends in Canada (you know who you are) and to our energetic marketing team for coming up with the catchy "Fedlet" name.
I wonder if things would have been the same if we had kept the original "SAML2 lightweight SDK" name; likely not !! My lesson on how it takes a entire team to make anything successful.

Virtual Federation

Thanks to Marina Sum for a great Q&A session on Virtual Federation as part of the "From the Trenches at Sun Identity" series. Read about it here
Its amazing how a very simple concept goes a long way in removing barriers in adopting Federation technologies.
FAM Sr. Product Manager Daniel Raskin has already been blogging about it and several other cool features being added to OpenSSO and the upcoming FAM 8.0 release. Will be posting some howtos in upcoming blogs.

Learn the Power of Federation in 5 days

Sun's Training Team has put together an excellent course on Federation : Federation Boot Camp. Its quite comprehensive starting with basic concepts to hands on labs for the cool "a-ha!" experience.
The best part is that its not a dull protocols and xml exercise - its designed around real customer use cases and actually helps you decide which of the several possible deployments are most applicable for your particular situation.
And ofcourse its all based on what I do in my day job : SJS Access Manager and Federation Manager. Please feel free to request enrollment for the next session and for more info : fm-bootcamp AT sun dot com.
