"A Norwegian startup is assuming responsibility for
maintaining an open source web authentication technology originally
developed by Sun Microsystems, and seemingly neglected by Oracle,
which purchased Sun in January. The company, ForgeRock, has
released a new version of Sun's Open Single Sign On (OpenSSO)
Enterprise software, called OpenAM, that adheres to the OpenSSO
roadmap established by Sun.
""It's a pretty easy migration path for all the customers who
have found themselves stranded on OpenSSO. They can safely migrate
to a current version," said Simon Phipps, chief strategy officer at
ForgeRock, and former chief open source officer at Sun. Phipps was
one of a number of employees who have joined ForgeRock since
Oracle's purchase of Sun."
