OpenSSO Extensions Launched Today

Paul Bryan

Following on from last week's entry on OpenID on OpenSSO, we rolled the new OpenID code into OpenSSO over the weekend and are today announcing OpenSSO Extensions (more detail in my blog entry at Superpatterns) - an incubator for OpenSSO. The OpenID code is there, as is the existing 'Lightbulb' SAML 2.0 PHP and a new Client SDK for OpenSSO implemented in PHP.

The idea is that, if you have an idea for a cool extension to OpenSSO, maybe a new authentication module or identity repository plugin, you can work on it in the OpenSSO community, with the code hosted in a 'sandbox' under the opensso/extensions tree. As extensions mature we'll look at migrating them into the OpenSSO core.

Switch on SAML for PHP with Project Lightbulb

Lightbulb

As I just mentioned over at Superpatterns, Marina Sum and I just published an article on the Sun Developer Network (SDN) - Switch on SAML for PHP with Project Lightbulb. The article walks through some of the Project Lightbulb code, following the single sign-on process. If you want to work with the Lightbulb code, or you just want a better idea of how SAML 2.0 works, this article is for you.
