SSOCircle Goes Live

Hu Liu, a regular on the OpenSSO IRC channel (#opensso on freenode), has just launched SSOCircle - a SAML 2.0 identity provider (IdP), based on the Open Federation code (part of the OpenSSO project). Quoting from the home page, SSOCircle's mission is:

  • Identity Provider for everyone
  • JumpStart SingleSignOn/Federation deployments
  • Leverage federation for Web 2.0 apps
  • Providing ready-to-use solutions
  • SAML 2.0 standard based testing platform
  • Exchange of information/experience
  • Building the SSOCircle of Trust

I just registered, logged in and tried out SAML 2.0 SSO with the sample service provider site (based on Sampo Kellomäki of Symlabs' ZXID) and it all works nicely. At last there is an easy to use, public site to play with SAML 2.0.

As soon as I get a chance I'm going to add SSOCircle as the default IdP in Lightbulb and write a how-to for getting your first service provider up and running.

Thanks, Hu, and best of luck!

Right from the very inception of OpenSSO, the most frequently asked question has been "When are you open sourcing the federation code?". Well, today, the answer is... "Today!" Here is the text of the announcement:

The OpenSSO project is pleased to announce the availabilty of the Java source code for the identity federation and web services framework of the Sun Java System Access Manager and Sun Java System Federation Manager. The name of this effort is Open Federation.

Following is a list of links to help you get started:

The OpenSSO project and code will be updated constantly with bug fixes, new features, modules and accompanying documentation. Please check back often. In fact, OpenSSO is a growing community of developers, both inside of, and outside of, Sun. Be a part of OpenSSO and sign up at https://opensso.dev.java.net.

Go grab it, play with it, and build cool stuff!
