Authenticating Users With Identity Services in OpenSSO
New on Sun Developer Network is Part 1 of an article series on securing applications with identity services in OpenSSO, Sun's open Web access management project based on Sun Java System Access Manager. Citing the example of a client application built with the NetBeans IDE, this first segment describes how to configure OpenSSO so as to authenticate users by means of its identity-service interfaces that enable Web services through SOAP/WSDL or REST. Just a few steps and you're done.
Parts 2, 3, and 4 will address the role of OpenSSO's identity services in authorization, profiling, and logging. I'll spotlight them here for sure. Stay tuned!
