The WSO2 Identity Server is an enterprise-ready, fully-open source, lean, component-based identity and entitlement management server. It facilitates security and identity management of enterprise web applications, services, and APIs and carries support for OpenID, Information Cards, XACML, and SAML 2.0.
Based on the award-winning WSO2 Carbon platform, the WSO2 Identity Server is lean, lightweight and consists of only the required components for efficient functioning. Since its features are developed as pluggable Carbon components, provisioning the server requires a simple point-and-click installation of required features in the WSO2 feature repository.
This is the official, released WSO2 Identity Server Documentation, hosted at: http://docs.wso2.org/identity-server. The purpose of this documentation is to provide you with information for setting up, configuring and implementing the WSO2 Identity Server.
