Today Cozmanova and Magic Choice announce the project Asimba, the next generation of OpenASelect. This open source application is the foundation for many access management solutions. With the introduction of Asimba, a SMS/OneTimePassword authentication module will also be released for as part of the distributed features of the Asimba application.

A-Select exists since 2004 as Open Source project, enabling it to be used as Identity and Access Management component in eGoverment projects. This application was originally based on the A-Select application that was developed by Alfa & Ariss. Later, Alfa & Ariss developed the open-source OpenASelect software. Since Vasco has incorporated Alfa & Ariss in 2011, the OpenASelect website is no longer hosting the application site.

Since the OpenASelect website was given an "under construction"-status, neither the sources, the binaries nor the documentation are available. Because Cozmanova and Magic Choice are actively using OpenASelect as part of multiple projects, it was first decided that some of the source- and binary packages were made available. Beyond that both companies have now decided to continue the project under its new name, Asimba!

Asimba delivers a modular approach to identification and authentication. Because of this modularity, each actual deployment is customized and independent from the applications that make use of authenticated identities. The Asimba Access Management application supports standards like SAML, A-Select and OpenID. Authentication and authorization are dealt with using protocols like A-Select, SAML SP, Radius and LDAP. The open source approach of Asimba provides all the flexibility to integrate SAML, A-Select or eHerkenning protocols into existing IT-components of an organization. An example is DigiD, which was created using the A-Select protocol.

The start of Asimba will also release an authentication module for SMS/OneTimePassword-authentication technology. This module supports multiple SMS gateways, among which is the CM-gateway, known for (amongst others) the Park Line project.

With the launch of the project, there is also a website dedicated to the project, which can be found at asimba.org. This website will receive many updates to get the project up to spec. Please visit asimba.org for the latest updates.
