Desktops in the Cloud

Crack Sun identity management field operatives Paul Walker and Joachim Andres have put together an amazing demo of Sun's identity stack working with Sun xVM and Secure Global Desktop to provision (and disable!) 'Desktops in the Cloud' to end users. It's an integration tour de force, bringing together a whole slew of Sun products into a whole that is much more than the sum of its parts. Cool soundtrack too - well worth 12 minutes of your time. Oh - and make sure you view 'full screen', so you can properly see what's happening - there's quite a lot going on!

Sun Secure Global Desktop and OpenSSO Integration

Sun Solution Architect Joachim Andres (aided and abetted by Paul Walker and Andy Hall) has just written up an integration [PDF] of OpenSSO with Sun Secure Global Desktop. Secure Global Desktop (SGD for short) provides secure access to centralized Windows, UNIX/Linux, Mainframe and Midrange applications from a wide range of popular client devices, including Microsoft Windows PCs, Solaris OS Workstations, thin clients and more (can you tell I cut'n'pasted that from the product page? ). One of the most interesting client interfaces to SGD is via a Web browser - you can see it in the demo I recorded with Michael Coté of Redmonk - which brings it into OpenSSO's sphere of control.

This integration is a great example of the use of policy agents with existing applications - the policy agent sets the REMOTE_USER server variable and SGD is configured to pick that up rather than use its own login page. With that, and a tweak to SGD's logout logic to send the browser to OpenSSO's logout page, we have a very neat integration. Check it out [PDF].
