The Fedlet - 'Best Innovation' Award Winner at the European Identity Conference

Sitting next to The Smoking Monkey here at Sun's Open IAM day in Brussels, I just got word that the Fedlet last night won the 'Best Innovation' award at the European Identity Conference 2009. In Kuppinger Cole's words:

In the category “Best innovation”, the award went to the OpenSSO initative, founded and supported by Sun Microsystems. Their project, OpenSSO Fedlet has provided a lean solution for the Identity Federation.

This capped a fantastic week for us at EIC2009 - our second OpenSSO Community Day, hosted here on Tuesday, was a great success, with about 50 attendees coming together for a full day of presentations and discussions centering on OpenSSO. I've started uploading slides to the event wiki page - more will arrive over the next few days as I receive them from the presenters.

Felix Gaehtgens managed to corner me on the Sun booth on Wednesday - here's what I had to say about the OpenSSO Community Day and the latest Fedlet news:

OpenSSO Tab Sweep - Apr 17 2009

A celebration this week and events over the next month in the world of OpenSSO...


So - there you have it - a packed few weeks in OpenSSO-land, and evidence that the OpenSSO community is as active IRL (in real life) as on IRC (Internet relay chat)

OpenSSO Tab Sweep - Mar 27 2009

As always, a bumper crop of OpenSSO news from the last couple of weeks...

That wraps things up for another week - I'm off to jump in the Patmobile and brave 101. See you next time!

A Grand OpenSSO Community Day Out in New York

Many thanks to all who attended (I counted at least 50) and spoke at our very first OpenSSO Community Day this past Tuesday in New York City, and to NYU for making available such an excellent facility.

We had a range of speakers: some from the OpenSSO product team, some from other parts of Sun, and even one SI partner - Mike Schwartz from ID-Vault. As promised, we assembled the agenda at the start of the day, and managed to fit in nine 40 minute sessions covering pretty much every aspect of OpenSSO. Almost all the slides are online at the event wiki page (slides, please, Brad!).

If you attended the community day, please complete the Meetup survey - we'd love to have your rating and comments.

The next stop for the OpenSSO Community Day roadshow will be Munich, on May 5. Remember, if you're also planning to attend the European Identity Conference (hosts for our event), you can get 20% off your registration fee by quoting the discount code OPENSSO.

Watch this space for news of OpenSSO Community Day 3.0 - to be held in San Francisco, around the time of CommunityOne West/JavaOne.

Attend an OpenSSO Community Day, Save €€€!

As Daniel just blogged, attendees at our second OpenSSO Community Day, to be held at the Deutsches Museum in Munich on May 5 2009, can get a 20% discount off their registration for the European Identity Conference 2009, which is kindly hosting us during their conference week. Just quote OPENSSO when you register and you'll get the discount. As Daniel says "We will be passing an attendance list to Kuppinger-Cole so you need to show-up to our community day to get this discount".

Meanwhile, looking at our first OpenSSO Community Day, in New York City, on March 17 (yes, St Patrick's Day; no, that wasn't intentional - honest!) we blew past our original estimate of one man and a dog and had to move it to a bigger room. We're now in the Shorin Performance Studio on the 8th floor of the Kimmel Center.

Currently leading in the unofficial "furthest travelled attendee" contest for New York looks to be Kimimasa, flying in from Japan. Can anyone beat that? Any OpenSSO community members in Perth, Australia?

OpenSSO Community Day 2.0 - Munich - May 5 2009

You asked, we listened... the next OpenSSO Community Day is in Europe!

After I announced the NYC OpenSSO Community Day, one of the most frequently asked questions was "Can we do an OpenSSO community day near me?", with many requests coming from the other side of the Atlantic. So... we got together with our friends at Kuppinger Cole and are pleased to announce... OpenSSO Community Day 2.0!!!

Hosted by the European Identity Conference 2009 at the Deutsches Museum in Munich, Germany, and sponsored by Sun Microsystems, this is another opportunity for OpenSSO contributors, deployers and users to come together in an informal 'unconference' setting.

Being an unconference, the only rigid item on the agenda will be to decide at 9am on the sessions for the rest of the day. You can show up and talk about any OpenSSO-related topic you like. Maybe you have an interesting deployment, a new extension or a nagging question - sessions can be discussions as much as presentations. Now, that doesn't mean that there need be zero preparation - if you have a session in mind, go to the wiki and add it there, so folks can get an idea of the likely content ahead of time. We've already posted a few ideas.

All are welcome, attendance is free, and lunch will be provided. We'll likely adjourn to a nearby bar at the end of the day to continue the conversation

We're using meetup.com to manage the registration process - just join the OpenSSO group and RSVP!

OpenSSO+Spring - an Open Source Community in Action

On Friday morning, Jim Gellman of the Institute for Systems Biology asked a question on the OpenSSO Users mailing list about OpenSSO/Spring Security (formerly known as Acegi) integration:

We'd like to use opensso with an app that's using Spring Security currently, but we don't have the resources at the moment to develop a module to do this.

Instead we're hoping we can use Spring Security's container adapter for tomcat along with the OpenSSO agent. Does anyone know for sure whether this is a reasonable approach?

Just a few minutes later, Robert Dale of CALGB replied:

I actually have code based on acegi-security 1.0.3 that provides an AuthenticationProvider, LogoutHandler, AuthenticationProcessingFilter, and AuthenticationProcessingFilterEntryPoint. I would be more than happy to donate to OpenSSO extensions if they want it.

How can you refuse an offer like that? Actually, it turns out that Robert had also done some work with Seraph (Atlassian's security framework, used by Jira and Confluence). So, this morning I created two new 'Authentication Provider' OpenSSO Extensions - one for Spring and one for Seraph - and Robert checked in his code. If you've been scratching your head, wondering how to integrate OpenSSO with Spring or Seraph, go check 'em out!
