WebLogic JaasLounge SSO support coming up


The JaasLounge team wishes you a happy new year!

We have great plans for 2010.
First of all, the WebLogic module for JaasLounge SSO is currently being deployed and tested for thousands of users and will be available to you very soon on the Subversion repository.
Secondly, as you noticed, JaasLounge gets a new fresh skin thanks to the migration to Maven.
Last but not least, we are going to implement the JSR 196 included in Java EE 6 and start migrating our SSO modules into JSR 196 compliant modules.

JaasLounge SSO for Oracle


We are pleased to announce that an new JaasLounge SSO module for Oracle Application Server has just been committed to the SVN repository.

The new authentication API provided by Oracle, the Pluggable Identity Management Framework, is being used as the underlying mechanism.
Thus, the minimum requirement is version of OC4J.

As said previously, this module introduce the new JaasLounge libraries. These aim to provide better handle of token deconding and include the parsing of Microsoft PAC data.
PAC (Privilege Attribute Certificate) takes place as part of authorization data of a Keberos Ticket when using Active Directory as a Kerberos Key Distribution Center.
It contains the group membership list and much more information about the user account.

PAC decoding in JaasLounge SSO


JaasLounge used to offer SSO against Active Directory at container level.  We now go further and support PAC decoding!
PAC (Privilege Attribute Certificate) is some data that takes place in the authorization data slots of a Keberos Ticket when using Active Directory as a Kerberos Key Distribution Center.
It contains the group membership list and much more information about the user account.
See more at MSDN.

In previous implementations, JaasLounge was using jCIFS to handle GSS negotiation stuff.
The new JaasLounge modules now implement this and even more by decoding SPNego token and Kerberos ticket to extract the PAC information.

These new modules have been developped under the new project model established for JaasLounge and particular efforts have been made to ensure enterprise quality at every level.
Check them and provide feedback as much as you can. Once again, do not hesitate to post in forums!

First use of these new libs will be done in the next supported server for JaasLounge SSO: Oracle Application Server coming soon.

JaasLounge migrating...


Due to recent activity and new project objectives, JaasLounge needs to adopt up-to-date technologies.

Thus, first, current CVS repository will be replaced by a SVN one. Old source code will still be available with some little refactoring.

Then, the structure of code itself will be changed to be more accessible, more usable and modre maintainable.
We will progressivly use Maven 2 in all subprojects, including brand new ones to be announced.

To be continued...
