Gluu Server includes a variety of components, each of which serves a different purpose. You can use any or all of the following:
- oxShibboleth - an open-source, single sign-on server used by more than 5,000 organizations
- gluu-Asimba - a platform that allows you to consolidate Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) authentication and Identity Provider (IDP)
- oxAuth - Gluu’s IDP and User-Managed Access (UMA) authorization server
- Gluu LDAP - Gluu’s version of OpenDJ, an open-source directory service
- oxTrust - Gluu’s server administrator app used to manage and configure sign ons, authentication, access, and scripts
- OXD - is a mediator, a service demon that listens on localhost, providing easy APIs that can be called by a web application to simplify using an OpenID Connect Provider, like Google or the Gluu Server, for authentication or authorization. oxd is not a proxy--sometimes it makes API calls on behalf of an application, but other times it just forms the right URLs and returns them to the application.
