ActivIdentity 4TRESS Authentication Module for OpenSSO/Access Manager

ActivIdentity logo

More OpenSSO/Access Manager goodness at Sun Developer Network this week - regular Identity Management technical author Marina Sum and Sun ISV Engineer Michelle Cope just published an article on integrating Sun Java System Access Manager with ActivIdentity 4TRESS Authentication Server.

Complete source code is available as an OpenSSO Extension - the first time we've done this for an authentication module. OpenSSO Extensions are sub-projects that integrate with OpenSSO in some way - there are SAML implementations in PHP and Ruby, an OpenID Provider and more. If you have an idea for an OpenSSO Extension, then signup to OpenSSO and drop us a line on one of the mailing lists.

You can find more information on the 4TRESS integration in my blog entry at Superpatterns, and in the article itself.
