Gluu Adds Asimba SAML Platform to Gluu Server Stack

The open source Asimba SAML platform is now included in the Gluu Server to ease single sign-on integrations for application developers.

Austin, Texas (I-Newswire) December 30, 2013 - Gluu announced today that new deployments of the Gluu Server will include the open source Asimba SAML platform. Gluu's main use case for Asimba is to enable websites to use a single IDP for SSO, even when the organization may have a number of IDPs that are trusted.

"Our main goal was to simplify single sign-on configuration for websites and SaaS applications" said Gluu CEO Mike Schwartz. "In many organizations, the list of which organizations are trusted, and what type of technology infrastructure they use, is too complex for website developers to track. The Asimba SAML proxy drives down the cost of SSO integrations by enabling an internal web site or SaaS application to point to a single SAML IDP."

Asimba has additional functionality which may be incorporated into the Gluu Server in the future. Asimba has hooks for authorization, enabling the enforcement of rules that define who can access which websites based on user claims, OAuth2 scopes, or context (for example geo-location and time of day).

"We are very happy to see the Asimba server get additional distribution and use," said Mark Dobrinic, one of the lead developers of Asimba. "Open source software for security is a requirement for many organizations, and will help enable a safer Internet for everyone. This is especially true for high quality tooling in the field of Identity and Access Management, that is an enabler for new and innovative services to build on."
