Higgins 1.0 Released
The Eclipse Foundation today announced the 1.0 release of Higgins, the first real software framework that enables developers to integrate user-centric identity technologies and protocols into their applications. It’s multi-protocol and
platform-agnostic architecture is key in making the process of integrating identity into their applications attractive to developers of web applications.
It’s a big achievement, and the first concrete step towards an identity layer for the internet. My congratulations to Paul, Mary and all the contributors to the Higgins project.
Has Oracle made any announcements if/when their OAM/OIM products will allow one day users to authenticate themselves with an OpenID or Managed InfoCard?
