Keycloack might be a good solution. I suggest you also test
FusionDirectory which I often use with LemonLDAP::NG to provide a full
identity management solution : https://www.fusiondirectory.org/

I made a presentation about some free softwares products that can be
used together for identity management :
Sadly it's in french but you have all product names, screenshots and
links to websites.

For information there will be a lot of presentation on this topic at
the next LDAPCon (https://ldapcon.org/2017/). Maybe some people from
Debian community can join us at this event.

Clément Oudot.
