White Paper: Federate ID for Cloud-Based Applications
Enabling Claims-Based Identity Services: Federate Identity for Cloud-Based Applications and Provide SSO Across AD Domains & Other Identity Stores.
The growing adoption of federation standards and protocols, such as SAML 2.0, WS-Federation, and OpenID, and claims-based systems, such as WS-Trust, all point to the emergence of a new, more flexible identity infrastructure. But such standards and systems push the thorny problem of final authentication to the edge of the network—what we call “the last mile.” This new system will require some form of virtualization to unify, route, and authenticate against scattered, siloed identity repositories. Read this white paper for more information about the new system and how end users and enterprises will benefit from it.
