With none of the fanfare that accompanied that Open Source Java announcement earlier this week, Sun Microsystems’ OpenSSO project quietly announced the Open Federation effort, including, “the availabilty of the Java source code for the identity federation and web services framework of the Sun Java System Access Manager and Sun Java System Federation Manager.”

The Open Federation architecture document states, “Open Federation provides a robust framework for implementing federated identity infrastructures and for deploying web services. Multiple industry standards, such as OASIS SAML, Liberty ID-FF, ID-SIS, IDWSF, are supported in the Open Federation system.”

This is another step forward in Sun’s effort to expand the federation software developer community and accelerate the implementation of federation systems in the world.
