What are SSO and OpenSSO, and what is the difference? Is OpenID the same as OpenSSO?

Q: What are SSO and OpenSSO, and what is the difference? Is OpenID the same as OpenSSO?

A: SSO steht für Single Sign On. OpenSSO ist eine Open Source Implementation des SSO.

OpenID ist eine Spezifikation von Identity Management ohne Verwendung von SAML. Hat prinzipiell nichts mit OpenSSO zu tun.

Hi Pirkka,

SSO stands for Single Sing-On, a method that allows a user to log into an application once, and removes the necessity to authenticate again when the same user accesses any other application that is federated (linked) and with which the user already has an account. (check http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Single_sign-on for more information)

OpenSSO (https://opensso.dev.java.net/) and OpenId (http://openid.net/) are both open source framework that implement SSO.
