From Japan, news that Nomura Research Institute (NRI), a consulting and IT solution services company spun off from Nomura Securities, are offering support and services for OpenSSO [Japanese press release] [Google translation to English], including OpenID for cross-enterprise authentication.
As well as being a big endorsement for OpenSSO, this event marks its graduation as an open source project - it's definitely no longer 'just a Sun thing'.
Welcome, NRI! We look forward to your contributions to OpenSSO!
