OpenSSO Express and Identity Services at SDN
By superpat on Aug 29, 2008
Things have been pretty quiet on the identity front here at The Aquarium over the summer vacation season - time to kick things up a notch with a look at the recent feast of OpenSSO-related articles on the Sun Developer Network's identity pages:
In part 4 of the 'Securing Applications With Identity Services' series: 'Single Sign-On and Logout', Prashant, Aravindan and Marina show how OpenSSO's REST-based identity services can be put to use in integrating a sample Java web application with OpenSSO. This approach was used in Prashant's integration of Liferay with OpenSSO, which also works in WebSynergy.
'Integrating Applications With OpenSSO', by Tatsuo, Aravindan and Marina, covers integration with OpenSSO via policy agents, reverse proxies, the client SDK, and identity services. There's a great worked example of integrating Ruby on Rails with OpenSSO, applying OpenSSO's identity services beyond the world of Java.
The fifth interview 'From the Trenches at Sun Identity' has Marina talking to OpenSSO senior product manager Nick Wooler on Support for OpenSSO, explaining how customers can now buy support for OpenSSO via OpenSSO Express.
Finally, Aravindan Ranganathan talks to Marina about Identity Services for Securing Web Applications. As you can probably tell, identity services is one of the hottest components in OpenSSO right now!
