Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by DavidRecordon:
http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/HeraldryIdentityProposal

The comment on the change is:
Cleanup the proposal section to make the deliverables more clear

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  = Proposal =
- This is a proposal to create a project within the Apache Software Foundation to develop
technologies around the emerging user-centric identity space.
+ This is a proposal to create a project within the Apache Software Foundation to develop
technologies around the emerging user-centric identity space.  The project would utilize Yadis
[1] for URL/XRI-based service discovery and OpenID [2] for web based single-sign-on and the
basis of exchanging profile data.  Yadis is currently being standardized within OASIS as part
of the XRI effort, within a TC committed to creating royalty-free work, and OpenID has emerged
as a de-facto specification.  The two initial components of the project, downloadable perspective,
would be an Identity Provider application and libraries in various languages that implement
Yadis and OpenID.  The initial goal would be to both provide an out-of-the-box application
as well as the required libraries for other developers to integrate Yadis and OpenID into
their existing applications.
  
- The project would start with Yadis [1] for URL/XRI-based service discovery, OpenID [2] for
web based single-sign-on and the basis of exchanging profile data, and integrate with the
Eclipse Higgins project [3] to provide a desktop component.  The project would be tasked with
the further development of these technologies as well as creating a bridge between the light-weight
URL/XRI based identity technologies and the desktop.
- 
- Yadis is currently being standardized within OASIS as part of the XRI effort, OpenID has
emerged as a de-facto specification, and OSIS does not depend on a specification although
the further development of its architecture document would ideally be part of this project.
- 
- Higgins is being actively developed within Eclipse and is a framework that will enable users
and enterprises to integrate identity, profile, and relationship information across multiple
systems. Using context providers, existing and new systems such as directories, collaboration
spaces, and communications technologies (e.g. Microsoft/IBM WS-*, LDAP, email, IM, etc.) can
be plugged into the Higgins framework. Applications written to the Higgins API can virtually
integrate the identity, profile, and relationship information across these heterogeneous systems.
+ To provide some background, the Higgins Project is being actively developed within Eclipse
and is a framework that will enable users and enterprises to integrate identity, profile,
and relationship information across multiple systems. Using context providers, existing and
new systems such as directories, collaboration spaces, and communications technologies (e.g.
Microsoft/IBM WS-*, LDAP, email, IM, etc.) can be plugged into the Higgins framework. Applications
written to the Higgins API can virtually integrate the identity, profile, and relationship
information across these heterogeneous systems.  They current have integration with Microsoft's
CardSpace and we'll be working with them over the next few months to add support for OpenID.
 It hasn't yet been determined, nor does it need to be right now, if the code to tie OpenID
into Higgins will live within Apache or Eclipse.
