WSO2 Launches CardSpace ID Solution

WSO2 debuts identity solution to simplify authentication across Web applications, protect users from attacks

COLOMBO, Sri Lanka and MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- WSO2, the open source SOA company, announced today the launch of the WSO2 Identity Solution (IS) to help customers address the challenges of managing user identities in Web applications and protect against attacks, such as phishing. Providing an easy-to-use management console, the highly interoperable WSO2 IS removes the barriers to implementing consistent identity management across the many applications, data sources and services that comprise a service-oriented architecture (SOA).

The WSO2 IS enables LAMP1 and Java websites to provide strong authentication based on the new interoperable Microsoft CardSpace technology, which is built on the open standards Security Assertion Mark-up Language (SAML) and WS-Trust. WSO2’s new open source security offering features an easy-to-use Identity Provider that is controlled by a simple Web-based management console and supports interoperability with multiple vendors’ CardSpace components, including those provided by Microsoft .NET. The WSO2 IS also works with enterprises’ current identity directories, such as those based on the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) and Microsoft Active Directory, allowing them to leverage their existing infrastructure.

WSO2 Open Source Approach to Identity Metasystem

CardSpace is Microsoft’s approach to the Identity Metasystem, an interoperable architecture for digital identity that has emerged to address the growing problem of securely maintaining and managing identities across extended spaces, including large enterprises and the Web. WSO2’s Identity Solution offers customers a new open source alternative that works with popular open source and Java websites while supporting the new CardSpace approach found in Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 7.0 browser and Mozilla’s Firefox.
