OpenAM

NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
This blip is not on the current edition of the radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the radarUnderstand more

When Oracle ceased development on Sun’s OpenSSO—an open source access management platform—It was picked up by ForgeRock and integrated into their Open Identity Suite. Now named OpenAM, it fills the niche for a scalable, open-source platform that supports OpenID Connect and SAML 2.0. However, OpenAM’s long history has resulted in a sprawling codebase whose documentation can be inscrutable. Hopefully, a slimmed-down alternative with better support for automated deployment and provisioning will emerge soon.

When Oracle ceased development on Sun’s OpenSSO—an open source access management platform—It was picked up by ForgeRock and integrated into their Open Identity Suite.  Now named OpenAM, it fills the niche for a scalable, open-source platform that supports a variety of federated identity standards, including OpenID Connect and SAML 2.0.  These standards are a necessary enabler for secure microservice implementations.
