Gluu releases first version of OpenXDI (OX)
Open source software provides secure, privacy protecting technology to enable sharing of personal data by implementing proposed OASIS XDI 1.0 standard.
July 1, 2011, Bulverde, TX – Gluu announced today the release of OpenXDI (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, 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. XRI 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.
OX software is open source; the latest code and documentation is posted on the project wiki at http://ox.gluu.org
Gluu provides IT services to large organizations to help them design, build, and operate authentication and authorization (AA) systems to secure web and mobile applications using open source software. Gluu leverages open standards such as OAuth 2.0, SAML, and RADIUS to enable organizational strong authentication, single sign-on (SSO), and web access management (WAM). The OX open source project, maintained by Gluu, implements two profiles of Oauth2: OpenID Connect for authentication and UMA for authorization. Gluus OX management service enables organizations to quickly deploy an AA service for their Internet domain, on the IAAS platform of their choice.
