The project, part of Sun’s Java System Access Manager, now has a roadmap to being completely open source.

Single Sign On (SSO) promises a reduction in complexity to users who juggle multiple passwords as they navigate from one computer system to another, or even from one role to another within the same system.

Sun’s Open Web SSO Project aims to offer transparent single sign on functionality as an infrastructure security component.

This implementation will offer authentication, session, and logging services, all necessary pieces of the SSO puzzle. Sun touts this project for the web tier as one that will seamlessly integrate applications across identity repositories, regardless of the operating system running a particular web or application server.

As with its many other projects, like Open Solaris, Sun will provide this project under terms of its Common Development and Distribution License.

The current project roadmap calls for architectural documents and user cases for the project by August, with buildable sources entering the repository in the coming months. That would lead to complete open source availability for all sources in April of ’06.
