Sun Java Identity Server 6.1 Offers New Identity Management Features

Sun Java Identity Server 6.1 Offers New Identity Management Features

The new minor release of the Sun Java System Identity Server 6.1 (formerly Sun ONE Identity Server 6.1) is the first commercially available identity management product to support both Liberty v. 1.1 and SAML 1.0, providing enterprises and service providers with the possibility of increased revenues and efficiencies.

New features include:

  • Supports Solaris Operating System 8 (Solaris OS) (SPARCR Platform Edition), Solaris OS 9 (SPARC Platform Edition), Solaris OS 9 (x86 Platform Edition) and Windows 2000 Advanced Server

  • Supports deployment in Sun JavaTM System Application Server 7.0, Professional Edition and Standard Edition, Update 1 and provides API/SDK support for additional JavaTM 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EETM) application servers, primarily BEA WebLogic 6.1 SP4 and IBM WebSphere 4.0.4 Advanced Edition)

  • Offers seamless integration with other Sun Java System products that are part of the Sun Java Enterprise System offering

  • Supports RSA SecurID pluggable authentication module, which gives customers the capability of integrating strong authentication

  • Advanced integration support with C APIs for Authentication and Single Sign-on (SSO) capabilities

  • Enhanced user management and roles assignment using Filtered roles

  • Password self service features support password reset and forgotten password retrieval

  • Resource-based session timeout to support stronger security requirements

    Such features as self service, delegated administration and identity consolidation improve operational efficiencies and simultaneously reduce costs while improving the user experience for customers and productivity for employees. Further opportunities for revenue generation stem from the potential for affinity, loyalty and partnership programs with federated services. At the same time, access management and Liberty architecture materially lower business risk through improved privacy and regulatory compliance.

    Support for filtered roles provides yet another avenue for cost reduction by the simplification of role management. Changes in role membership can be treated automatically and dynamically linked to changes in the user profile attributes.

    Another desirable feature is resource-based session timeout, which enables customers to more effectively manage risk by defining access/authorization policies based on the sensitivity or business value of the resource being accessed.

    New agents are available for additional Web, J2EE. and ERP applications that make it possible for the Sun Java Identity Server to protect a variety of resources in the enterprise environment.
