Learn the ins and outs in a new Sun Developer Network article.
New on Sun Developer Network is an article, Federated Identity Through the Eyes of the Deployer , by identity luminary Eve Maler. The article answers these questions:
- What identity-related challenges do application deployers face?
- What considerations are involved in setting up a single sign-on solution so that users can authenticate elsewhere before accessing your application?
- What are the popular federated identity protocols?
- What questions must you ponder before adopting a standardized solution?
In addition, the article offers tips and guidance to help you make the right choice for an SSO architecture. You're invited to check out OpenSSO , whose "broad coverage addresses many protocol-related concerns in federation and Web access management."
