Dale Olds impressed a lot of folks at IIW leading the session to map out all the different open source identity related code that currently exists and that would be good to have.
DIDW reported today that Novelle launched Bandit.
Bandit is a system of loosely-coupled components to provide consistent identity services.
It implements open standard protocols and specifications such that identity services can be constructed, accessed, and integrated from multiple identity sources. The Bandit system supports many authentication methods and provides user-centric credential management. On this base of a common identity model, Bandit is building additional services needed for Role Based Access Control (RBAC) and for the emission of records to verify compliance with higher level policies.
The Bandit community does not intend to do this in isolation. We are doing our part to build foundational components of the emerging identity fabric. All components of Bandit are Open Source and we will work with industry standards and other open source projects to provide open, interoperable, decentralized, identity services.
