Nulli showcased our views on IM KISS - "Keep IAM Simple Stupid" demo at the ForgeRock Open Identity Summit. Presenting identity management in a visible and open format with nothing to hide is a key principle of the open community that Nulli and ForgeRock support. The demo highlighted a rapidly deployed suite of the ForgeRock Open Identity Stack running on 4 Raspberry Pi computers.

A few hundreds of dollars in equipment was all that was needed for Nulli to be able to demonstrate the use of OATH2 credentials from Google, Amazon and Facebook for accessing protected apps, provision accounts using the OpenIDM workflow engine and providing directory failover using OpenDJ. All of this neatly packaged in a picture frame illustrating the process flow and server interaction.
It does run on Solaris 10 & GlassFish 2.1.1!
I’m a big fan of the ForgeRock suite of products for various reasons. One is the flexibility they give you when it comes to infrastructure. Since OpenAM is open you’ll find it will run on just about anything. The downside to this wonderful fact is that you have to often figure out for yourself how to make it work. In this blog posting I am providing some OpenAM memory configuration options that I have researched and hope you find useful.
I met with Lasse Andresen, CEO of ForgeRock while at RSA and was really pleased to have had the opportunity to catch-up with him on all things ForgeRock.
The big news was that ForgeRock has secured $7 million of Series “A” funding from Accel Partners of Palo Alto, California, USA. I see this as yet another vote of confidence for the direction that ForgeRock is leading the Identity and Access Management (IAM) community.
I spoke to Lasse about how Nulli continues to see the ForgeRock OpenDJ and OpenAM products as highly reliable and easy to deploy solutions for our customers. The subscription based license model has been extremely well received and is one of many differentiators that ForgeRock offers its’ partners and clients.
