On the customer front — Express Scripts has deployed Sun’s Identity Management Portfolio to implement a centralized identity management solution that automates provisioning for more than 100 systems based on an employee’s job function or operational role. The solution has created a centralized identity directory that maps multiple corporate identities on disparate systems that are each associated with a single employee.
Here’s a link to the customer success story

Last week I had the opportunity to record an IDM Buzz Podcast with Michael Cote of Redmonk and Jamie Nelson, Sun’s Director of Engineering for OpenSSO.
In this episode we discuss the latest OpenSSO Express 9 launch and our new Fine-Grained Authorization (FGA) capabilities. We also explain why we chose a Resource Oriented Architecture when designing our FGA solution and did some therapy with Cote to help him deal with his exposure to a shaved, punk rock cat (we’re hoping his health care covers the session).
Also, if you missed our webinar last week on the OpenSSO Fine-Grained Authorization capabilities check out the replay here. Enjoy!
There’s a couple of nice technical articles available that demonstrate how to integrate EJBCA and OpenSSO. EJBCA is an enterprise class PKI Certificate Authority built on J2EE technology. It is a robust, high performance, platform independent, flexible, and component based CA to be used stand-alone or integrated in other J2EE applications. EJBCA provides users with digital certificates for strong authentication and digital signatures. OpenSSO uses these credentials to provide single sign-on and authorization. Check out the articles.
