The new module allows management of auditing (reports), policies, roles, users, tasks and entitlements. At present UForge uses this embedded IDM service for authentication and role-based access control (RBAC) authorization through special entitlements. The persistence store behind the IDM service is an SQL store and there is a resource connector, connecting to an LDAP V3 Service, for storage of roles, users and entitlements information, in an ldap store.
The IDM service is deployed inside a Glassfish (v3) web and application server container.
This IDM Service can be extended. Either to provide wider identity and access management (IAM) integration, for existing enterprise or corporate IAM systems, using the UForge REST APIs and or UForge's Java APIs. Or by integration into brand new standards compliant IAM systems, by using Apache Syncope's open source industry standard resource connectors.
The UShareSoft UForge Online platform uses this Identity management system for RBAC services to manage thousands of "free and subscription based" online user accounts and is also part of the UShareSoft UForge enterprise product offerings.
Founded in 2008 in Grenoble in the heart of the French Alps, UShareSoft is now a global leader in hybrid IT application delivery and migration. We help enterprises build, migrate and govern applications for their clouds and data centers. We were acquired by the Fujitsu Group in late 2015, and we now also lead Fujitsu’s European cloud software R&D center.
Our mission hasn’t changed since we joined Fujitsu. We’re still aiming to make software delivery easier and faster, whatever OS you’re developing on and whatever deployment environment you’re using: cloud, containers, bare metal, VMs…take your pick. We’re built for sharing and for the future: ready for any cloud, 100% API coverage, integration with DevOps tools, integrated sharing and collaboration, support for containers and open source tools.
The Open Source selection resulted in Apache Syncope and Tirasa, which provided ts activities to support the Army staff in building the best IdM system possible, for their own specific needs.
After a PoC built by Tirasa and based on Apereo CAS and Apache Syncope, the Institute decided to proceed on this path by engaging Tirasa itself to realize the whole infrastructure.
Provisioning is involved with managing the internal data sources and external via specific connectors for representation of users, groups and attributes. This component often needs to be tailored to meet the requirements of a specific deployment. The enterprise support of Tirasa, gave us the manageability, scalability and flexibility to connect and protect millions of consumers at enterprise customers
Currently the whole infrastructure, based on Apache Syncope, manages about 5.000 users, periodically synchronized with HR.
We choose Apache Syncope to carry out the provisioning and account management role as part of our authorization platform, due to its simplicity and flexible adoption to the product needs. Another important consideration was the knowledge and excellent support provided by the Tirasa team
Tirasa provided timely support and always followed up to ensure that all issues were resolved to satisfaction.
Stichting Bibliotheek.nl is very content with Apache Syncope as a product and intends to extend its services based on it.
SURFnet is currently planning how to include Syncope it in its identity management and collaboration middleware for provisioning / deprovisioning needs.
SWM is very satisfied with both the community and the commercial support of Tirasa.
We have had a few years to get to know Apache Syncope and have gained some in-depth knowledge of its use. For this, the support provided by Tirasa has been a vital aid. We have received help in the form of, for instance, code examples providing a preview of the implementation, as well as solutions to configuration problems and quick fixes to any errors we have discovered.
Users can log in via SPID, thanks to the functional extension developed by Tirasa.
Currently, the U.Porto is the most international of Portugal’s universities thanks to its active cooperation with hundreds of higher education institutions worldwide. The ambition now is to establish the U.Porto as one of the top 100 universities in the world by 2020.
