New White Paper: Federated Identity & Single Sign-On Using Layer 7

Identity Federation White PaperIncreasingly, enterprise IT is characterized by SaaS, Cloud, SOA and all sorts of other technologies that bridge organizational boundaries and – consequently – identity domains. When users from various domains have diverse collections of credentials for systems spanning the extended enterprise and Cloud, management and security concerns inevitably arise.

Identity federation is the key to addressing these concerns. A lot of people assume identity federation is the same thing as Single Sign-On (SSO), where a single identity is used to authenticate a user across multiple services, applications and platforms. In fact, SSO is just one piece of the identity federation puzzle, albeit an important one.

Our new white paper, Federated Identity & Single Sign-On Using Layer 7, examines all the key pieces of this puzzle. It takes a detailed overview of the technologies that can be used to merge separate “identity silos” into a centralized, authoritative identity store (SAML, STS, OAuth etc.) It also explains how our products can be used to implement these technologies.
