Keycloak is an open source software product to allow single sign-on with Identity Management and Access Management aimed at modern applications and services. As of March 2018[update] this JBoss community project is under the stewardship of Red Hat who use it as the upstream project for their RH-SSO product. From a conceptual perspective the tool's intent is to make it easy to secure applications and services with little to no coding.
The first production release of Keycloak was in September 2014, with development having started about a year earlier. In 2016 Red Hat switched the RH SSO product from being based on the PicketLink framework to being based on the Keycloak upstream Project. This followed a merging of the PicketLink codebase into Keycloak.
To some extent Keycloak can now also be considered a replacement of the Red Hat JBoss SSO open source product which was previously superseded by PicketLink. As of March 2018[update] JBoss.org is redirecting the old jbosssso subsite to the Keycloak website. The JBoss name is a registered trade mark and Red Hat moved its upstream open source projects names to avoid using JBoss, JBoss AS to Wildfly being a more commonly recognized example.
Among the many features of Keycloak include :
- User Registration
