OpenSSO Identity Services

Besides Policy Agent that performs authentication and authorization, OpenSSO offers Identity Services to helps authenticate users who access protected applications.

The Identity Services are accessible via SOAP/WSDL and REST.

Basically, no difference from those offered by Policy Agent:

  • Authentication and Single Sign-on — Verification of user credentials
  • Authorization — Permission for authenticated users to access secured resources
  • Provisioning — Creation, deletion, search, and editing
  • Log — Ability to audit and record operations

The only difference is developers have to code by themselves to achieve the above 4 functionalities.
More flexibility if you look at it positively. Of course, more effort required.
