EIC / Munich: Secure Identity Federation

At EIC 2016 Dirk Krafzig speaks about Identity Federation which has become an essential business need to modernize IT landscapes. The focus to achieving Identity Federation often revolves around product solutions that attempt to solve identity federation with agents, adapters, and rip-and-replace environment disruption.

The session demonstrated how to achieve identity federation 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. It shows how an enterprise can architect a federation solution to expose standard-based identity capabilities while leveraging existing architecture to reduce cost, and to reduce the burden of actual implementation and deployment.
