Open Source IdM Implementation

Kepak, a European Food Giant (well, 2000 folks doesn't qualify as a giant, does it?) has asked the Open Source gurus at Sirius Corporation to deploy " OpenLDAP-based Identity Management solution...".

The article doesn't mention which vendors were selected, although they do describe it as "...a secure, standards-based platform that will authenticate Windows users to all network services."

Who could they have selected? Don't know, but its probably somewhere in this Identity Management Open Source map put together by Jim Yang and the folks at Identyx. I love this thing. I wish someone would put together another one for vendors outside the open source space...any takers?

Technorati tags: , , Jim Yang, Identyx, Sirius, Kepak

Any European barbeque fan will have eaten Kepak burgers. From moo to patty in about 10 mins.

This is an open source deployment, not vendor-centric. The press release refers to the usual suspects of Sun and Microsoft. OpenLDAP, a free OSS project, was preferred.

So what's the status of this anyway? I did a little googling and nothing interesting turned up, although I'm sure I missed something obvious..
