Stephen Shankland reports on Sun’s release of Identity Server 6.0.
Wells Fargo has been using the test version to handle authentication on several parts of its online banking site, Barco said. Liberty makes sure a customer signed on to the online banking system, for example, can get to the bill payment system or the brokerage system without having to log in to each one.
Sun expects customers initially will use Liberty to join together separate services within the same company. Later, Sun believes, companies will join with business partners–for example, an airline and car rental company–to ease login hassles.
