Project Open Provisioning ToolKit (OpenPTK) is now officially open for business as an official Open Source project on java.net.

The brainchild of Sun Micrsosystems employees Terry Sigle, Derrick Harcey and Scott Fehrman, this project grew out of many customer-focused Identity Management Proof of Concept projects conducted by these three, resulting in a formal Open Source project unveiled at the Sun Customer Engineering Conference (CEC) held this week in Las Vegas, NV.

As stated on the OpenPTK website, “Project Open Provisioning ToolKit (OpenPTK) is as an open source User Provisioning Toolkit exposing API’s, Web Services, HTML Taglibs, JSR-168 Portlets with user self-service and administration examples. The architecture supports several pluggable back-end services including Sun’s Identity Manager, Sun’s Access Manager and LDAPv3.”

Answering real-world demand for exposing Identity Management functionality as web services, this project provides an innovative method for accessing and integrating functionality in Sun’s suite of Identity Management products: Identity Manager, Directory Server, Access Manager and Federation Manager.

Congratulations, guys, for your innovation and drive to bring this to reality. I invite all of you out there in Identity Management land to join the project and collaborate with this excellent team.
