Secure Federated Identity 

Secure_fed_id2.pngIdentity has become an essential business need to modernize capability and adapt to the evolving landscape of computing. The focus to achieving secure Identity often revolves around product solutions that attempt to solve identity with agents, adapters, and rip-and-replace environment disruption. Forum Systems provides a different vision and proven capability to achieve secure identity federation.

In this paper, we will discuss how to achieve secure API identity in a landscape of existing IdM systems, repositories, directory services, and other user information stores by unifying these capabilities via a federation services architecture tier. We will show how an enterprise can architect an identity solution to expose standards-based identity capabilities while leveraging existing architecture to reduce cost, and reduce the burden of actual implementation and deployment. Additionally, we will explore the necessary aspects of protecting the identity components of the architecture as a core part of our solution approach.

In this paper you will learn:

  • Key technology foundations of Identity Federation
  • Agentless vs Agent-based solution approaches
  • Leveraging existing solutions rather than building new ones
  • How to achieve a more secure approach to identity
