Name        : python-velruse
Product     : Fedora 18
Version     : 1.0.3
Release     : 3.fc18
URL         : http://pypi.python.org/pypi/velruse
Summary     : Simplify third-party authentication for web applications
Description :
Velruse is a set of authentication routines that provide a unified way
to have a website user authenticate to a variety of different identity
providers and/or a variety of different authentication schemes.

It is similar in some ways to Janrain Engage with the exception of being
open-source, locally installable, and easily pluggable for custom identity
providers and authentication schemes.

You can run Velruse as a stand-alone service for use with your websites
regardless of the language they’re written in. While Velruse itself is
written in Python, since it can interact with your website purely via HTTP

Velruse can:

 - Normalize identity information from varying provider sources (OpenID,
   Google, Facebook, etc.) to Portable Contacts.
 - Simplify complex authentication protocols by providing a simple
   consistent API
 - Provide extension points for other authentication systems, write your
   own auth provider to handle CAS, LDAP, and use it with ease
 - Integrate with most web applications regardless of the language used to
   write the website

Velruse aims to simplify authenticating a user. It provides auth provider‘s
that handle authenticating to a variety of identity providers with multiple
authentication schemes (LDAP, SAML, etc.). Eventually, Velruse will include
widgets similar to RPXNow that allow one to customize a login/registration
widget so that a website user can select a preferred identity provider to
use to sign-in. In the mean-time, effort is focused on increasing the
available auth provider‘s for the commonly used authentication schemes and
identity providers (Facebook, Google, OpenID, etc). Unlike other
authentication libraries for use with web applications, a website using
Velruse for authentication does not have to be written in any particular
