Tremolo Security's CTO, Marc Boorshtein, gives you an introduction to Identity Management for modern applications and a deep dive on deploying and integrating OpenUnison on OpenShift. Marc also gives a tour de force demo of OpenUnison running on OpenShift 3 and walks thru a number of Identity Management scenarios. It's a great introduction to the topic of Identity Management and sets the stage for a number of upcoming OpenShift Commons Briefings on the topic.
OpenUnison provides identity management functionality as a J2EE application rather then a virtual appliance. OpenUnison is lightweight enough to deploy alongside J2EE and non-J2EE projects, while still being powerful enough to provide the identity features enterprise applications need.
OpenUnison combines web access management, authentication, provisioning, and identity virtualization in a single system that can be deployed onto any J2EE container. When performing web access management and authentication services OpenUnison sits between your application running on OpenShift and users using Last Mile modules to secure the connection without a bulky agent that needs to “call home” to validate tokens.
For provisioning services, OpenUnison provides a REST- like set of services that can either be called from Scale, Tremolo Security’s self-service user interface for Unison provisioning capabilities, or directly from your own application. Finally, OpenUnison integrates MyVirtualDirectory for identity virtualization, providing the ability to work with multiple identity sources such as LDAP, Active Directory, cloud services, and more.

What happens in an OpenShift update vs. an upgrade? Changes with Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform can happen regularly, so we deploy a new version, which can be a bit scary because no one wants ...
