The Open Web SSO project (OpenSSO) provides core identity services to simplify the implementation of transparent single sign-on (SSO) as a security component in a network infrastructure. OpenSSO provides the foundation for integrating diverse Web applications that might typically operate against a disparate set of identity repositories and are hosted on a variety of platforms such as Web and application servers. This project is based on the code base of Sun Java System Access Manager.
