"Among the promises of open source software is that there is no vendor lock-in. It's a promise that new open source startup ForgeRock is aiming to deliver upon by supporting and extending the OpenSSO open source single sign-on and identity management platform formerly supported by Sun Microsystems.

"Many former Sun employees have found a home at ForgeRock, including Simon Phipps, who previously served as Sun's chief open source officer. At ForgeRock, Phipps holds the position of chief strategy officer.

"ForgeRock's goal is not just to support the OpenSSO platform, but to extend it into a complete access management solution. While ForgeRock and some of its technologies have their roots in Sun, the company doesn't necessarily see Oracle, Sun's new owner, as the primary competitive target. (I3) "
