OpenSSO Tab Sweep - Dec 12 2008

It's been a while since the last tab sweep - lots of news since then, such as the OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 release, that's kept me busy both here on the blog and 'in real life' (if there is such a thing any more!). Anyway, here are some of the titbits I've been saving for a tab sweep blog post:

Well - that wraps things up for this week. Don't forget to vote for OpenSSO in the SOA World Readers' Choice Awards!!!

OpenSSO Authentication Modules - Hitachi Finger Vein Biometric, Verisign Identity Protection, RSA Access Manager

I've blogged before on OpenSSO Extensions - useful modules that do not fit into the OpenSSO 'core'. Among the various categories of extension are 'authentication modules' - one of the most common customizations for OpenSSO and Access Manager. An authentication module supports a particular mechanism for collecting and verifying a user's credentials - common mechanisms that are supported out-of-the-box include username/password against LDAP, client certificates (encompassing browser certs and smartcards) and Windows Desktop SSO (aka SPNEGO, aka Kerberos).

Of course, technology refuses to stand still, and new authentication mechanisms are constantly being developed and deployed - new biometrics, hardware tokens, even whole new authentication protocols. Over the past few months, we've seen a clutch of new authentication modules in OpenSSO, so it's time to take a look at what's new...

So, three very different authentication modules. Maybe you have an idea for a fourth?
