Selling Trust

Brad Cox, a regular in the OpenSSO IRC channel just came out with a line that, I think, perfectly encapsulates the spirit of open source at Sun:

"Sun used to sell bits. Now you're selling trust. Interesting times!"
Interesting times indeed!

Gartner: Sun IAM & Open Source - STRONG POSITIVE

Via Tatsuo Kudo - Gartner recently published their latest vendor rating for Sun. The overall picture is, well, sunny, if you'll pardon the pun, but I'm particularly pleased with their ratings in the areas of Identity and Access Management and Open Source - 'Strong Positive'\* for both, which means that OpenSSO and OpenDS must be doubly blessed

\* Strong Positive: Is viewed as a provider of strategic products, services or solutions:

  • Customers: Continue with planned investments.
  • Potential customers: Consider this vendor a strong choice for strategic investments.

The fabulous Bianca Botello (our Marketing Programs Manager for identity management - if you've marvelled at Sun's hospitality suites at the Burton Catalyst conference then you've seen Bianca's work) is now blogging at Identity Management Buzz. Get all the latest news on Sun's identity management user group meetings, our latest identity management podcast and even Rainn Wilson ('The Office's Dwight Schrute) hosting Saturday Night Live.

Sun and Microsoft Interoperate for Web Authentication, Part 1

In between all the talk of federation, PHP and web services, we sometimes lose sight of the fact that bread-and-butter single sign-on and access control still has huge value in improving both security and the user experience. Over at the Sun Developer Network, Marina Sum and I just published an article - Sun and Microsoft Interoperate for Web Authentication, Part 1 - focusing on how Sun Java System Access Manager and its policy agents integrate with Microsoft IIS to provide both single sign-on and access control - right down to Windows ACLs on files on disk.

As the article mentions, some functionality (specifically, the basic authentication plugin - from the 'Configuration of the Policy Agent for HTTP Basic Authentication' heading to the end - sorry, there is no handy name anchor in there to link to) will be released in AM Policy Agent for IIS 2.2-Hotpatch6 sometime in the next few weeks. I'll post here as soon as this is available; at that point you will be able to work through the entire article. In the meantime, much of it works with the current policy agent, so you can get started straight away.

Sun OpenSSO/AM Bloggers

I posted an entry yesterday listing the 5 (so far!) bloggers from Access Manager engineering. I realized that there are a load more folks in Sun, but outside AM engineering, blogging about AM and OpenSSO. Here is a list that I will update as and when. There is a fuzzy boundary here - if you are in the list and you don't think you should be, then let me know. Similarly, if someone is not in the list and they should be, then let me know. Comments or email are fine. I'm including folks' functional area so that readers have some idea of what to expect from the different blogs - for instance - the field folk tend to have a wider focus than AM engineering :-)

UPDATE - all of the below blogs are aggregated at Planet OpenSSO.
