Sun Microsystems has started shipping version 6.0 of its Sun One Identity Server.
The product is the first to ship commercially which supports the Liberty Alliance 1.0 specification allowing single sign-on to authenticate users across multiple websites and services.
Sun explained that Identity Server, based on Security Assertion Markup Language, will appeal to corporates trying to simplify and consolidate identity authentication across diverse internet-based applications and services.
Identity Server incorporates a web access manager, an identity manager and single sign-on features. It is priced at $10 per user, with discounts available for large installations.
The vendor confirmed that a service pack would be issued for Identity Server in a few months which would add support for the latest Liberty 1.1 standard.
The Liberty Alliance released its first specs for a single sign-on standard in July and updated it in November.
