/PRNewswire/ --
ForgeRock is pleased to announce the general availability of OpenAM
10.0, one of the key product in the I
3
Open Platform. ForgeRock
strengthens OpenAM Authentication, Authorization and Federation
capabilities by adding OAuth 2.0, Risk Based Authentication and the
Open Identity Gateway. In addition, several key enhancements to
security, performance, reliability and replication have been
implemented.
The OpenAM 10.0 release is a major upgrade and it sets the stage for a
modern architecture and introduces many new important features, general
improvements to the core product, as well as to the agents. A large amount of
the code base has been audited and cleaned up, and as a result the overall
quality has been improved. Since the initial release of OpenAM more than a
thousand bugs, security issues and improvements have been resolved.
OpenAM 10.0 is the result of several months of intensive research and
development work at ForgeRock combined with input and feedback from the
flourishing OpenAM open source community and our customers. This release
significantly strengthens the security and integration capabilities of the
standards based I
3
Open Platform. It includes improvements in the areas of
Federation with SAML 2.0 and OAuth 2.0, application integration, Risk Based
Authentication, and key enhancements in security, reliability, performance and
the underlying replication architecture.
The release features the following industry-leading capabilities:
Open Identity Gateway (OpenIG): A high performance identity proxy that expedites the
integration of web applications into a Single Sign-On environment without touching the
application. Ideal for legacy applications where changes to the security model are
contraindicated. OpenIG also extends the SAML 2.0 Service Provider capabilities of the
OpenAM offering.
Risk Based Authentication: Measure the risk associated with an authentication event
and challenge with additional stronger credentials if the need arises. This is now part of
the authentication framework and includes capabilities such as geographic location
evaluation, time since last login, number of authentication failures check, ip address
history check, cookie associated with a device check and attribute profile check, among
others.
OAuth 2.0 authentication: Users can now federate their accounts from Google,
Facebook, MSN, and any OAuth 2.0 provider with OpenAM.
SAML 2.0 Identity Provider enhanced capabilities that ease the interaction with end-
users for several tasks such as approval of attribute release to service providers. This is
implemented as an additional hook into the SAML 2.0 framework.
ForgeRock's OpenDJ is now the embedded configuration store.
OpenAM comprises in one single product the features and capabilities usually
found in several products. The latest version can be obtained from the
downloads area .
