Gluu announced the release of open ID connect (OX) version 0.0, an implementation of the XDI 1.0 standard under review by the OASIS XDI Technical Committee. This initial release provides a core Java API for XDI, a graphical browser for displaying XDI graphs, and an XDI server which provides XDI persistence, operations, and messaging. OX leverages XRI 3.0, a separate OASIS proposed standard for persistent and re-assignable naming objects on the Internet.
“The imminent completion of the XDI 1.0 standard represents the culmination of years of hard work by the OASIS XDI Technical Committee. All of us at Gluu are grateful for the opportunity to bring this vision to life in code,” said Michael Schwartz, Founder / CEO of Gluu. “Today, privacy on the Internet is broken. The architects of the Internet did not design the network to address the complex security and privacy requirements that are needed by our society. OpenID connect single sign on and XDI technology is a deep structural solution to empower people and organizations to both share and protect data that is essential for their digital existence,” he continued.
Gluu publishes free open source Internet security software that universities, government agencies and companies can use to enable Web and mobile applications to securely identify a person, and manage what information they are allowed to access. Using a Gluu Server, organizations can centralize their authentication and authorization service and leverage standards such as OpenID Connect, UMA, and SAML 2.0 to enable Single sign on server (SSO) and trust elevation.
