Radiant Logic announced the release of RadiantOne VDS 6, a federated identity service. Designed to provide one logical access point for enterprise identities, VDS 6 enables authentication and authorization across multiple identity sources and authentication protocols. VDS 6 is built to address the demands of single sign-on (SSO) and authorization for the cloud and federations in high-volume, heterogeneous environments.
RadiantOne VDS 6 enables authentication and authorization for a range of users—including internal, external, and mobile users—across multiple security protocols, identity stores, and usage patterns. By federating identity from different identity silos—such as AD, LDAP and SQL—VDS 6 keeps the centralized virtual hub up-to-date.
The product features a set of tools, including identity remapping, aggregation, correlation, and automated synchronization code to link the identity sources to the global hub. A collection of wizards simplifies the work of creating a global identification system.
The newest release features a federated identity wizard based on virtualization technology to guide users through the process of creating an identity hub out of heterogeneous source. It also includes a group builder wizard, a groups migration wizard, and a directory merge tree wizard.
RadiantOne VDS 6 has improved code for defining virtual views and the virtualization layer radically simplifies the design of a global identity and profile views. The improved automated caching system keeps the image in sync with the underlying identity stores. The cache is a fully scalable LDAP directory, so the global virtual identity system can be replicated across multiple sites. VDS 6 ships with an open source directory acting as a cache, but any LDAP-compliant directory such as Oracle, Sun, or Red Hat can also be used.
RadiantOne VDS 6 is available in two versions. VDS Standard Edition advances virtual directory technology from a proxy-driven routing and remapping engine to a model-driven virtualization solution. VDS Context Edition delivers SQL access, enables contextual views for attribute-driven authorization and personalization, and comes with real-time cache refresh for synchronization.
