Open Source Identity for the Web 2.0 Era

Nov 29, 2006, 5:00 am – Nov 29, 2006, 6:00 am

Web 2.0 has been defined as a global platform of reusable services and data with data consumption and remixing from all sources, particularly user generated data. Part and parcel of this movement is the goal of continuous and seamless updating of software and data, often very rapidly with rich and interactive user interfaces. It also offers an architecture of participation that encourages user contribution. As such, it's no surprise that with the rise of interest in Web 2.0 there has been a rise of interest in Open Source. This webcast offers an overview of the open source projects in and around identity, with specific focus on OpenSSO, an Open Source project gaining momentum that implements Liberty Federation and Liberty Web Services as well as WS-I BSP and Lightbulb, a sub-project of OpenSSO that implements a SAML 2.0 service provider in the PHP language. Pat will show how a simple PHP application can be SAML 2.0-enabled in just a few minutes.

If you or your organization has interest in Open Source work to achieve identity-based solutions that capitalize on the Web 2.0 movement, this webcast is for you.
