White Paper on Sun's Approach to Identity Management

Posted by marinasum on April 3, 2009 at 10:13 PM PDT

Sun has a practical approach for identity management, as described in a recent white paper (in PDF) on, Keeping It Simple: A Pragmatic Approach to Identity Management. The paper first defines the importance of identity in Web applications and summarizes the subsequent chapters. Four chapters then follow, which focus on—

  • The requirements for an effective identity infrastructure
  • The pragmatic approach taken by Sun
  • Sun's identity solutions
  • Real-life examples

Reading a high-level writeup like that gives one a wide perspective. I enjoyed it.
