JBoss SSO (or JBoss Federated Single Sign-On) is a product from the JBoss SOA suite to allow single sign-on and sign-offs and federated access to multiple applications and computing resources across the network and the Internet.
Among the many features of JBoss SSO include :
- Interaction between applications and modules are based on industry standards such as Security Assertion Markup Language (or SAML).
- A decentralized approach is used as compared to the more traditional hub and spoke method.
- JBoss SSO is able to connect to different identity storage systems from different vendors through its versatile Identity Connector framework.
- Interfaces seamlessly with other JBoss products such as JBoss Portal.
- Separates between framework authentication and application authentication.
There are three main components of JBoss SSO:
- Federation server, to securely propagate the security token among different security domains
- Token marshalling framework, which serves to marshall the security token to and from. It is a pluggable Java API.
- Identity connector framework, which connects to different identity storage systems. It is a pluggable Java API.
