Burton Group Tech Watch podcast: Adoption and State of the Federation Market

Gerry Gebel of The Burton Group kindly invited me to participate in their most recent podcast, on the topic 'Adoption and State of the Federation Market', along with Patrick Harding of Ping Identity and David Miller of Covisint. Do Patrick and I come to (verbal) blows? Listen in and find out! [MP3]

FAMTalk 02: Federation

I just uploaded the second FAMTalk podcast - this time, I have the host's seat, presenting 'Federation', with a particular focus on SAML 2.0. You can download a PDF plus MP3 or AAC files from FAMTalk.org, or simply subscribe to FAMTalk via iTunes or RSS.

We had some frustrating technical problems recording this episode - the Sony USB headset (UAB-260) I was using developed an annoying crackle about halfway through the program. Unplugging, replugging, rebooting - nothing made it work for more than a few minutes at a time. After wrestling with it for an hour, we decided to just record the outro segment together and I ordered a Griffin iMic to replace the Sony USB Audio box (the headset itself seemed ok) to fill in the gap on my own.

The funny thing was, I got a bit of a cold between the first recording and the second, so the transitions between the different segments are quite obvious - you can hear me get sick and recover, all within an hour

Introducing FAMTalk

As Terry Sigle blogs today, FAMTalk (feed) went live this week. FAMTalk is a monthly podcast focusing on federation and access management (the FAM of the title) and their implementation in Sun Java System Federated Access Manager (the forthcoming next version of Access Manager) and OpenSSO. Your regular hosts will be Tim Campbell (Sun Partner Enablement), Steven Jarosz (Sun Americas Software SE - Federal), Terry (Sun Americas Software SE - Telco) and me (OpenSSO 'community guy').

In episodes 1a and 1b (we split the original 1hr 40mins or so in two), Tim presents Access Manager 101. You can download a PDF plus MP3 or AAC files from FAMTalk.org, or simply subscribe to FAMTalk via iTunes or RSS. Apparently the AAC files include the slides, which should play in sync with the audio on many iPods. I need to go check it out on my iPhone and see how it looks...

Web 2.0 Meets Directory

Friday lunchtime is my slot for catching up with podcasts. Today I listened to Trey, Don and Brandon discussing the OpenDS project and its Atom/LDAP offshoot - 'Web 2.0 Meets Directory'. Good stuff and quite funny as they rib Trey a little over James Governor's assessment of the Atom/LDAP mashup as "the coolest work at Sun Microsystems right now". Of course, I would submit that OpenDS and Atom/LDAP are actually just a little way off being the coolest project at Sun. But then, I would, wouldn't I?

New Podcast Posted - OpenSSO: Bridging the Gap

Catching up on the blogging - it's amazing how time flies by when you're doing 'real work'!

Last Friday, Brandon Whichard, Don Bowen and I recorded a podcast in Sun's Identity Management Buzz series. There was no agenda - Brandon, Don and I just chatted about what's new, including OpenSSO, its Extensions sub-project and OpenID. As the podcast was recorded on St Patrick's Eve, we even get to the subject of leprechauns and their gold...

Podcasting and Webcasting

It's been quite a week already and it's only Wednesday night! Yesterday, I was interviewed by Aldo CastaƱeda for 'The Story of Digital Identity' - Aldo's regular podcast. The conversation centered on Project Lightbulb (a sub-project of OpenSSO) - the PHP implementation of SAML 2.0. We covered a lot of ground, looking at the motivation behind Lightbulb and what I'm working on right now - figuring out how we can bring together some aspects of OpenID with SAML 2.0. There are some interesting synergies here, and I'm looking forward to talking about them at IIW2006b next week in Mountain View. If you're not too interested in digital identity, you can always skip to about 47"50' to hear all about single malt Scotch whisky

This was my first podcast experience and a lot of fun it was, much less intense than a webcast (no slides!). Aldo is doing a great job, and I felt quite honored to be a part of 'STODID'. This series of podcasts really is required listening if you want to keep up with what's going on in digital identity.

By the way, you'll need iTunes or Quicktime to play the podcast. I didn't have any luck with Windows Media Player or RealPlayer. Other players might also work - feel free to leave a comment.

Today's event was a webcast for the Liberty Alliance, again focusing on Project Lightbulb, but this time with slides and a demo. In the demo I show how to SAML 2.0 enable a simple PHP application by dragging in the Lightbulb files and editing 4 PHP scripts. I fall off the high wire one time , but recover quite gracefully

The webcast is archived (you might need to scroll down a bit - look for 'Open Source Identity for the Web 2.0 Era'), but you have to download the Webex player to watch it.

I wonder what the rest of the week will bring...
