Keycloak - Integrated SSO and IDM for browser apps and RESTful web services


Integrated SSO and IDM for browser apps and RESTful web services.  Built on top of the OAuth 2.0, Open ID Connect, JSON Web Token (JWT) and SAML 2.0 specifications.  Keycloak has tight integration with a variety of platforms and has a HTTP security proxy service where we don't have tight integration.  Options are to deploy it with an existing app server, as a black-box appliance, or as an Openshift cloud service and/or cartridge.
