Industry Analysts and Open Source Identity Management
The goal of the Bandit project:
- enable application access to identity stores
- support multiple and pluggable authentication methods and user-managed authentication credentials
- provide a simple API for role-based access control
- simplify auditing and reporting for compliance based on open standards and specifications.
I wonder how this will align with Project Higgins? Anyway, large enterprises nowadays are being forced to spend lots of bucks on items that make them compliant but generally don't have any business return on investment. Seeing commoditization of such products ultimately benefits IT as a profession and frees up monies for more important undertakings...
