SSOCircle Federating to Google Apps

As my colleague Pat Patterson reported earlier today, we are holed up in a windowless conference room in the Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas for the FAMFest 2008 event. There is immense brain power in this room!

During a few minutes of downtime, Pat showed me the good work done by SSOCircle in leveraging OpenSSO to establish federated linkages to a wide variety of service providers. To test the system, I established an SSOCircle account and linked directly to the suite of Google apps as “mgd@ssocircle.com.” OpenSSO handled all the heavy lifting behind the scenes.

I verified that I could send and receive email as “mgd@ssocircle.com” via Google email and link my ssocircle.com calendar to my personal Google calendar. Great little demonstration of the power of federation to provide SSO to multiple SaaS applications.
