Well-earned honor for the lightweight service-provider implementation of SAML 2.0.
As pointed out by Sun's Pat Patterson and Daniel Raskin , OpenSSO's Fedlet won the Best Innovation Award at the recently held European Identity Conference. The Fedlet, in Pat's words, is "a lightweight service-provider implementation of SAML [Security Assertion Markup Language] 2.0" that enables federation for both Java and .NET applications. See more details in my March 29 posting .
Pat's posting also includes an interview video, in which he talked about the well-attended OpenSSO Community Day in Munich last week and the impressive contributions of OpenSSO extensions by both Sun and non-Sun folks. He also described the latest OpenSSO capabilities. Sounds like everything is on a roll! Congratulations.
