CFS enables better service and stronger security when you need to provide all enterprise users with secure and uniform access to cloud applications.
- Step One: Together with RadiantOne virtual directory technology, the Cloud Federation Service acts as an identity provider (IdP) and a secure token service (STS). VDS authenticates identities stored in disparate silos, including multiple Active Directories domains and forests, LDAP, databases, and web services.
- Step Two: Because each application expects a different claim, every attribute—no matter where it comes from—must be remapped according to the application’s requirements. To meet the varying needs of different applications, RadiantOne CFS builds vendor-specific claims configurations, drawing on attributes pulled by the VDS from across the identity infrastructure. The encrypted token is then delivered to the consuming application in a format that application understands.
