Paul Bryan Interviewed at Sun Developer Network

As I just mentioned over at The Aquarium, Marina Sum recently published a short interview with Paul Bryan, in which Paul talks about OpenID, OpenSSO and the fight against phishing and identity theft.

OpenSSO participants and regular readers will recognize Paul's name - he was the very first external committer on the OpenSSO project, back in 2006. Paul went on to write the OpenID Extension for OpenSSO (since deployed at openid.sun.com) before joining Sun in October 2007. While we were sad to 'lose' an external committer, we were very happy to welcome Paul to Sun.

Go read the interview and be sure to leave a comment - this short interview format is new and Marina is looking for your feedback.

New Drop of the OpenSSO OpenID Provider Code

Back in March, Paul Bryan released the first version of the OpenID Extension for OpenSSO, implementing an OpenID Provider for OpenSSO, Sun's open source single sign-on/access control/federation project. You might also recall that, at the beginning of this month, SSOCircle put this into production, enabling OpenID Provider services on their public identity provider.

Last night, Paul announced the second drop of his OpenID provider on OpenSSO's developer mailing list. For those of you not subscribed, here is the full text of his announcement:

Hi all:
I have just checked-in the source to the OpenID provider 1.0 alpha2. The following are excerpts from the README file:

Introduction

The OpenID provider provides a complete OpenID Authentication 1.1 protocol compliant identity provider implementation, complete with full support for OpenID Simple Registration Extension 1.0.

Features

This release includes the following enhancements over 1.0 alpha1:
  • Standalone web application as deployable WAR file
  • OpenID message object model; supports future consumer implementation
  • Trust management user interface (non-persistent trust decisions)
  • Simple Registration Extension user interface
  • On-the-fly l10n and i18n (English, French and German included)
  • Full decoupling from authentication infrastructure through getUserPrincipal
  • Integration with OpenSSO through servlet filter implementation
  • Configurable OpenID identity regular expression pattern
  • Configurable authentication provider principal mapping
  • No more dependencies on OpenSSO internal classes

Roadmap

This is the second release in a planned series of releases. Version 1.0 alpha3 targets to include the following enhancements:
  • Persistent trust decisions (via pluggable persistence SPI)
  • Persistent persona management and associated user interface
  • Integration with other authentication infrastructures
  • Response to errors through published openid.error mechanism
  • Further refinement in preparation for OpenID 2.0 ratification
  • Full supporting documentation
  • Comprehensive logging
For more information, see: As always, any comments and feedback will be most appreciated.

OpenID on OpenSSO

Paul Bryan, one of our 'external' OpenSSO committers, has been hard at work implementing an OpenID identity provider for OpenSSO. You can take a look at his work so far at openid.pbryan.com - by the time you read this, there might even be some test accounts available there to play with. I spent a happy half hour last night logging into Jyte, FirstSSO, OpenID Wiki and more.

Watch for the source appearing at OpenSSO any day now...
