Single sign-on concept for


the last two weeks I worked on some topics around One part was to start with some implementation for the repository, and further to work on a SSO concept for all the related services, namely the main page, the wiki, the bugzilla and Gforge. The challenge is to keep the existing architecture as far  and the changes as small as possible. I have added the result as a first draft into the wiki. You can find the entry following this link. Comments, suggestions or hints based on your experiences with SSO concepts are of course welcome. Feel free to contact me in here, post in the developer forum or let me know in IRC. 


Short Introduction

Hi all,

as some of you already know, a week ago I started my new position in Nokia and in this scope I will be acting as an interface between the Open Source community and the Nokia internals from the technical point of view to support Quim Gil in this role. With this entry I want to introduce myself and give some overview what I am actually planning to do.

My name is Daniel Wilms, coming from the RWTH Aachen, and I started working for Nokia in 2007 as a Trainee in Nokia Research Bochum. There I worked on a Python-based prototype for the Internet Tablets and some back-end web service implementations. In spring 2008 I came to Nokia Research Helsinki and worked on back- and front-end implementations for location based services (LBS) for mobile devices and wrote my Diploma Thesis on this topic.

The first week in the new team I used to find some topics where I can jump in and where I will be active in the future. The most important task for me is to support developers in any kind of technical questions and wishes and to support Quim in his work on that. Further I want to let you know what I am doing. Therefore, I want to use those blog entries frequently to share what I am working on and what is going on on the Nokia side. Last week in the sprint meeting I promised to take over some small parts in the repository management, and further, to work on a SSO-concept for the components. Besides this I try to participate actively in an Open Source project. I am still looking around what could be interesting for me. As soon as I have decided and found something I will let you know. If anyone knows a project, which would need some support, preferably in Python, please let me know.

I’m looking forward to supporting you with needed information and being active in the community. If you have further questions don’t hesitate to contact me in IRC (danielwilms).
