Cross Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) support in OpenAM

I just saw a commit for CORS support in OpenAM. I was told by Andy, Product Manager of OpenAM, that CORS will be available in OpenAM 12. 

It's a feature required by one of my customers. There are similar requests from ForgeRock's customers as well.

So.. watch out for OpenAM 12!

IRM versus IAM - 2 very different worlds!

A picture says it all.

To put it simply, IAM is all about compliance (authentication + identity management + governance) within an enterprise security parameter with a population size usually less than 50,000. In fact, a figure of >30,000 workforce with partners are not usually seen.

IRM goes beyond an enterprise and it's about the Internet of Things. It is usually sized to support a population of more than a million. It's a totally different playing ground.

That's fun! :)
