TriCipher Offers Fast OpenID Support For SaaS Providers

myOneLogin Identity Services now accepts OpenID in addition to SAML, ADFS and other federation protocols
LOS GATOS, Calif., March 11 /PRNewswire/ -- TriCipher, a leading provider of Internet identity services, announced today that myOneLogin Identity Services now accepts OpenID in addition to SAML, ADFS and other federation protocols. Using myOneLogin, Software as a Service (SaaS) providers can quickly become OpenID relying parties, enabling them to accept credentials from OpenID identity providers like Google Apps. In fact the Google Apps Marketplace(TM), Google's recently launched online storefront for cloud applications that integrate with Google Apps, relies on OpenID for single sign-on between applications.

"Businesses providing applications 'in the cloud' are facing demands to support multiple identity federation protocols. While OpenID is the protocol used by Google Apps Marketplace applications, an enterprise customer may require ADFS integration with their enterprise identity solutions," said John De Santis, Chairman and CEO of TriCipher. "Now you don't have to write and maintain multiple interfaces. By supporting multiple protocols and translating between them seamlessly, myOneLogin lets you focus on business relationships rather than protocols."

myOneLogin Identity Services offers multi-protocol federation as an on-demand service in the cloud. This architecture has powerful benefits for application developers and SaaS providers:

-- For applications that already support a federation standard such as SAML, myOneLogin can convert OpenID into supported protocol, enabling participation in OpenID communities without writing new interfaces. -- For applications that do not yet support anyfederation protocols, developers can use myOneLogin to accept OpenID or other federation protocols by writing Web Services calls, for federation in minutes rather than days or weeks. -- SaaS providers can manage and maintain trust relationships with partners using a simple graphical interface, selecting OpenID providers from a list of identity providers (IDPs).

"The myOneLogin service offers application developers a fast path to OpenID-based single sign-on, which makes it possible to take advantage of our new Google Apps Marketplace as well as other sites built to work with OpenID," said Scott McMullan, Google Apps partner lead for Google Enterprise.

All federation functions are enabled using Web services calls that are easily integrated into the application. myOneLogin customers can implement federation and strong authentication in a matter of minutes, not days or weeks.
