This page provides an overview of what's being developed or has already been developed for Higgins 1.1. Many of the items on this page have been pulled from the overall long term wishlist here: Higgins Backlog and sub-backlog pages linked from it (e.g. Website Backlog, etc.).

Contents

Process (revised 7-July-2009)

Bugzilla (NOT this page NOR the milestone pages) is the authoritative tracking system.

Process:

  • We write up task descriptions on this page and discuss them on the list and on weekly calls. The idea is to comb through this page looking for items to schedule (put into Bugziilla). In some ways this page is really a Higgins 1.1 wish list, because anything that doesn't have a bugzilla item isn't "real" (isn't scheduled).
  • We create bugzilla items for each and copy the descriptions into the bugzilla entry (often embedded links to wiki pages). The bugzilla entry tags them as to milestone

This page and the milestone pages:

  • What remains on this page are just a one-liners with a link to the bugzilla description.
  • If desired, we can copy this one liner to the dedicated milestone page (e.g. Higgins1.1M7

Overview

Higgins Selector

AIR Selector 1.1

Done:

IPhone Selector 1.1

1.1:

Done:

Android Selector 1.1

Unsupported

During the course of Higgins 1.1 development we experimented with the following selector variants, but in each case decided not to make them an official part of Higgins 1.1:

  • GTK Selector 1.1-Win - basically complete. Work done includes:
  • AIR Selector 1.1-Win - early version, relies on hosted I-Card Service
  • Cocoa Selector 1.1 - never started
  • GTK Selector 1.1-Linux - never started
  • GTK Selector 1.1-FreeBSD - never started
  • RCP Selector 1.1 - never started. Required tasks include:

Selector Supporting Services

Cloud Selector 1.1

Unscheduled:

  • Add second factor for auth --preferably LOA 3. Examples:
    • OTP (One time password) sent to the user's phone
    • OTP generator app on the phone

I-Card Service 1.1

Unscheduled:

CardSync Service 1.1

Unscheduled:

Identity Services

STS IdP

Done:

SAML2 IdP

Done:

  • Enhance so that in addition to authenticating users against a Higgins IdAS Context, it can also authenticate users with an information card. Note that it does not yet issue cards.

Identity Services: RP

Done:

Authentication Service 1.1

Unscheduled:

  • Implement it

Attribute Services

IdAS Solution 1.1

Unscheduled:

  • Dust off 1.0 code and wiki; make sure it builds and runs

XDI4j 1.1

Done.

Components

Higgins Browser Extension Component

Deferred:

  • un/pw login
  • Microsoft's new CardTile option
  • Work with Axel to integrate his new XRD discovery code
  • Merge IDIB code (if possible), else recode in HBX -- depends on what we want to show at RSA 2009 interop
  • Experimental: Password Cards - includes "PWMgr" a proposed enhancement to the Higgins Browser Extension (initially its own extension)

Higgins Selector Switch Component

Questions:

  • Have we checked in this work from Corisecio?
    • Windows platform: option to use DLL instead of TCP socket/server method of connecting the HBX (for IE & FF) to use a DLL connection instead
  • Need to review this table on the components 1.1 page. Does it correctly captures the number of separate implementations of HSS that have been developed. That is, are there really only two implementation project/folders? Windows and Mac?

Done:

Org.eclipse.higgins.ontology

This component holds the schemas/ontologies used by Higgins. Done:

Configuration

Scheduled:

IdAS Component

Higgins 1.1M8:

Unscheduled:

  1. 284644: Higgins/ModelAPIs
  2. 284645: Access Control in IdAS
  3. 238374: IdASRegistry: Support for dynamic updates - Greg/IBM
  4. IdAS Authentication: With Higgins 1.1, there were some changes to the IdAS Authentication Materials. The goals of these changes were (1)To have identifiers for Authentication Material types, in order to be able to discover this information via UDI Resolution and (2) To be able to easily (de)serialize Authentication Materials. The changes made include the following:
    • Introduce a marker interface IAuthnMaterials, which all Authentication Materials classes implement
    • Define string constants for the common kinds of Authentication Materials that we have
    • Reduce Authentication Materials classes to simple Java Beans (i.e. remove business logic, and reference to IContext in constructor)

Done:

IdAS Context Providers

Unscheduled:

Done:

  • Google Contacts CP 
  • RDF CP
  • JNDI/LDAP CP

Infrastructure & Cross-cutting Improvements

Higgins 1.1M8:

Unscheduled:

  • Breaking every jar into its own Eclipse project (relationship to Orbit)
  • Internationalization of certain CPs - done
  • Evaluate how could internationalization the clients so that can outsource creating localized versions.
  • Galileo - need to create a prioritized list of "to do"s even though we will not be part of Galileo so that we'll be in better shape for next year.
