Sun Net Talk on Access Management and Federation
A recent Sun Net Talk vodcast by Sun senior product line manager Daniel Raskin addresses the aspects of authentication, authorization, administration, and personalization in access management and federation.
The vodcast starts with a description of the problems enterprises face today in resources, federated partnerships, implementation schedules, secure Web services, and scalability. Raskin then elaborates on Sun's standards-based solutions, available in several modules. One of them is Sun Java System Access Manager, a twin of OpenSSO, an open-source project whose ever-growing community now boasts over 700 members.
