For the past few weeks, I'm trying to choose one of the Forgerock Identity Management solution and WSO2 Identity server for my IAM solution. These are the features I'm particularly interested in:
  • SSO
  • Policy based access control
  • User identity management
Both of these look good but I'm not sure which one to choose. Can anyone help me?

Hi,

Both
products bring you a inclusive Identity Management platform – having support
for SAML2, OpenID, XACML 3.0, OAuth 2.0, SCIM, WS-Security standards.

Few distinctive
features that I would like to focus on WSO2 Identity Server are…

1.   
Decentralized Federated SAML2 IdPs
(http://blog.facilelogin.com/2012/08/security-patterns-decentralized.html)

2.   
Distributed XACML PDPs

3.   
User friendly XACML PAP wizard

4.   
High scalability (We have a middle-east customer using WSO2 IS
over an user base of 4 million for OpenID support.)

5.   
Cassandra based User Store ( To be used over 800 Million user base
by one of our production customers)

6.   
Light-weight and Very low memory footprint. The stripped down
version of WSO2 IS can be started with 64MB Heap Size and the standard versions
runs with 96MB Heap.

7.   
Highly extensible. The architecture behind WSO2 IS is highly
extensible. You can easily plugin your authenticators, user store, etc…

8.   
Support for multi-tenancy.

9.   
Suport for multiple user stores (AD, LDAP, JDBC)

10. 
Interoperability.

11. 
Part of a proven SOA product platform provided by WSO2.

Also we
are planning to add support for OpenID Connect this year with a set of improved
Identity Management capabilities.

You can also read more about WSO2 Identity Serevr from http://blog.facilelogin.com/2012/08/wso2-identity-server-flexible.html

 

I think
you would be to evaluate both and decide
which one is best as per your requirement.

Thanks & Regrads
