OpenID RP support in MARS-IAM

Today Cozmanova releases support for OpenID in MARS-IAM. The OpenID-support is both for assisting the registration procedure, as well as delegating authentication to an OpenID-provider of a user's choice.


The implementation is based on the RegistrationService serving as OpenID Relying Party. When a user enters his (or her) wish to make use of his (or her) OpenID, an OpenID-identification process is started. The RegistrationService makes use of this occasion to also request some of the user's profile-attributes. This way the signup-procedure can focused on the attributes that are relevant for the domain signup-procedure.

When the signup-procedure has finished, MARS-IAM can let a user authenticate through an OpenID Provider.
