A Solution is a specific combination of Higgins Components that, when assembled and deployed, results in either an infrastructure-level service, or an end-user application.
This section describes the solutions developed by the Higgins team. There are solutions at three different levels:
The Higgins project has developed one example end-user application, called the Identity Selector, based on Higgins components. This app is available in different flavors:
- GTK and Cocoa Selector Solution - for Firefox (or other applications) on Linux, FreeBSD and OSX (client-based native code app)
- RCP Selector Solution - for Eclipse RCP Applications (client-based Java app; requires JRE 1.4 or higher)
- Firefox-Embedded Selector Solution - for Firefox on Windows, Linux, and OSX (Requires hosted I-Card Service Component)
The project has developed these Identity Provider web services:
- STS IdP Solution - WS-Trust Identity Provider (webapp and web service)
- SAML2 IdP Solution - SAML2 Identity Provider (webapp and web service)
As well as this example/test Relying Parity website/service:
- Extensible Protocol RP Website Solution - I-Card enabled Relying Party site (webapp) [supersedes: RP Website Solution]
Higgins has developed the Higgins Global Graph to address the need for data interoperability and portability for identity, profile, preference and social relationship data:
- Higgins Global Graph - Data model of the Higgins Global Graph
- IdAS Solution - Identity Attribute Service (local java component) and Context Provider plugins that implement the Higgins Global Graph.
- XDI4j Solution - General purpose library for XDI (see the Wikipedia page on XDI)
This section lists solutions developed external to the Higgins project, but based on Higgins Components.
- Novell DigitalMe for Linux/Mac - Identity Selectors based on the Higgins GTK/Cocoa Selector Solution (also open source)
- Bandit STS/IdP Solution - STS IdP (also open source)
