Subject [PROPOSAL][RFC] Fediz for the Apache Incubator
Date Tue, 01 Nov 2011 09:22:02 GMT
Hi,

I would like to propose Fediz to be an Apache Incubator project.

Fediz is an implementation of OASIS WS-Federation for Web SSO. The core 
concept is to externalize the authentication process to a centralized 
authentication server (called Identity Provider (IDP)) which can support 
any kind of authentication mechanism. The IDP issues a security token 
like SAML which contains the authenticated entity as well as role 
information and/or other claim data of a user like name, email, others 
which is sent to the application (called Relying Party (RP)).

Here's a link to the proposal on the wiki
http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/FedizProposal

I've also included the initial contents below.

As said in the subject (RFC), so any comments and new mentors are welcome

Thanks
Regards
JB
