Canonical open sources Launchpad and Ubuntu Single Sign On code
Canonical, sponsor of the Ubuntu project, has announced that its Canonical Identity Provider code is now available as open source. The CIP Single Sign On (SSO) authentication software is a component that was not made available last July when Launchpad, the site and software that drives Canonical's open source and project collaboration, was open sourced. Canonical Identity Provider is part of Canonical Identity Systems, which is a series of projects to support Canonical's OpenID-based SSO platform, and is currently used by both the Launchpad and Ubuntu Single Sign On facilities.
More details about the Canonical Identity Provider can be found on the project's Launchpad page (login required). Canonical Identity Provider code is released under version 3 of the GNU Affero General Public License (AGPLv3).
