THE .NET FEDLET APPROACHES! (Make spooky sounds as you read)



What's less than 1.5MB, SAML2 compliant and allows for super lightweight federation between an Identity Provider and a .NET Service Provider application? Yup . . . you guessed it! The .NET version of our game changing Fedlet. My .NET nerd friend and colleague, Giuseppe (also known as Gui), has just blogged about an updated prototype of the .NET Fedlet for people to try.

The key benefit of the Fedlet is that it's an appliance killer. Yup. I said it. An appliance killer! How you ask? Well the key reason we get requests for an appliance is because customers are searching for a simple way to enable partner federation with little effort. This is due to the fact that they want as little overhead as possible when trying to onboard a new partner.

Well, if you ask me having to maintain a federation deployment and infrastructure is still too high of a baseline and implies cost, cost, cost. The Fedlet is truly light and requires no hardware, maintenance, upgrades or license. That's right. I said no license. When you buy OpenSSO Enterprise you can provide as many Fedlets as you want to partners at no additional cost. In fact, Fedlets can also be enabled for multi-partner federation. Partners are covered under your OpenSSO license and can receive support at no extra charge. How's that for impacting Total Cost of Ownership?

The Fedlet will be officially supported in OpenSSO Express Build 8, which will be available July 2009.
