The Fedlet – Sun Identity Buzz Episode


Smoking Monkey

Last week, I was co-host once again with Sun’s Brandon Whichard on the Identity Buzz podcast. We talked with Daniel Raskin about The Fedlet, which is a small, light-weight way to get identity federation setup with Sun tools. Check out Daniel’s screencast.

I had the chance to ask Daneil about different use-cases for this federation stuff and how it fits together (or doesn’t) with OpenID, OAuth, and other Identity 2.0 stuff. From the demo I saw ahead of time, it looks like they’ve thrown together a quick and easy way to wire up SAML-based trust between two end-points.
