Gluu Releases Shibboleth Plugin for OX to Enable Simultaneous OpenID Connect and SAML Sessions
Gluu announced today its Shibboleth Login Handler for the open source OX platform to enable simultaneous OpenID Connect and SAML 2.0 sessions.
Austin, Texas (I-Newswire) October 7, 2013 - Gluu announced today that it has written and published a Shibboleth single sign-on Login Handler for the OX open source cloud identity platform to enable a person to get both an OpenID Connect and a SAML 2.0 session with one login. Additionally, OX custom authentication scripts can now be used by organizations to customize the business logic for multi-factor authentication, and to support a number of strong authentication solutions that were previously unavailable for Shibboleth deployments.
"The Shibboleth Login Handler was a critical feature on our development roadmap, and we're excited to offer customers the first cloud identity platform available for concurrent SAML 2.0 and OpenID Connect sessions," said Gluu CEO Mike Schwartz. "Furthermore, strong authentication is one of the most cost effective ways to increase security, and this plugin allows us to leverage the OX web interface to easily implement unique authentication logic in Shibboleth."
With the plugin deployed, a successful oxAuth authentication creates a new Shibboleth session to provide single sign on server capabilities via SAML 2.0 and OpenID Connect. The dual functionality allows Gluu on demand and open source customers to support and create single sign on relationships with the most important websites and SaaS services today such as Google Apps, Salesforce, and Workday via SAML, while also supporting applications that would prefer to use JSON/REST authentication using the OAuth 2.0 profile OpenID Connect.
Deployed in combination with other open source protocols including RADIUS, SCIM, UMA and LDAP, OX is a fully customizable, standards-based authorization and authentication platform that can run "out-of-the-box" on your existing hardware or a dedicated cloud server provided by Gluu.
The login handler can be found in our public SVN:
