The Linux Foundation has announced the Janssen Project, a cloud native identity and access management software platform that prioritizes security and performance for our digital society.

Based on the latest code that powers the Gluu Server–which has passed more OpenID self-certification tests then any other platform, Janssen starts with a rich set of signing and encryption functionality that can be used for high assurance transactions.

Engineers from IDEMIA, F5, BioID, Couchbase and Gluu will make up the Technical Steering Committee.

Having shown throughput of more than one billion authentications per day, the software can also handle the most demanding requirements for concurrency thanks to Kubernetes auto-scaling and advances in persistence.

The Janssen Project Technical Steering Committee (“TSC”) will help govern priorities according to the charter.

The initial TSC includes: Michael Schwartz, TSC Chair, CEO Gluu; Rajesh Bavanantham, Domain Architect at F5 Networks/NGiNX; Rod Boothby, Head of Digital Trust at Santander; Will Cayo, Director of Software Engineering at IDEMIA Digital Labs; Ian McCloy, Principal Product Manager at Couchbase; and Alexander Werner, Software Engineer at BioID.
