Trey has released on Java.net the code of the Atom/APP service that he built for JavaOne and CommunityOne, bringing Identity, authentication and authorization to Atom Publishing Protocol.
It is now a sub-project of OpenDS and you can join it from https://atom.dev.java.net/
Trey has received very nice comments from James Governor from RedMonk as well as from other people… Sincerely, he deserves them.
This is my OpenID as provided by Sun. A cool service leveraging OpenDS for the storage of identities and sessions tokens, as proven by the Universal ID (which is the DN of my entry in the LDAP Directory Server) in the picture below.
