  2. 2. ChallengeSolutionA leader in Internet Identity Management technologies needed to develop astandalone application that implements a Security Token Service to extend IdentityManagement to web services.To facilitate development and accelerate time-to-market the client sought apartner who could seamlessly integrate with its core development team andsupport standard processes based on the agile approach. The client was lookingfor a partner who would co-development the solution from step one.Luxoft was chosen for its ability to provide a highly qualified team ready to work asan extension of the client’s product development and testing teams.Collaborating closely with the client, the Luxoft team helped architect, design anddevelop the standalone Security Token Server - PingTrust. The solution creates andvalidates security tokens that are bound into SOAP messages compatible with theWeb Services Security (WSS) standard. The result brings standards-based, trusted,user identity to Web Services and Service-Oriented Architectures (SOAs).PingTrust builds on two open security standards that set the stage for trueinteroperability and a solution that scales. OASIS Web Services Security 1.0(formerly WS-Security) enables the embedding of security tokens in SOAPmessages, while WS-Trust establishes a mechanism for obtaining and validatingtokens from a Security Token Service (STS). PingTrust supports both .NET and Javaapplications, and Web-based and rich clients. PingTrust can operate on the WebServices Client-side, Provider-side, or on both sides of a Web Service transaction.PingTrust is a lightweight, standalone, modular product that:uu Provides out-of-the-box support for several token types including SAML 1.1and SAML 2.0, x.509, Kerberos and username/password, and is extensible tosupport custom tokensuu Provides a Web-based console for 100% GUI configurationuu Moves identity-related security and cryptography code out of applications byconsolidating token security token processing into a centralized, shared serveruu Aggregates trust management to dramatically simplify administrationuu Does not require a heavyweight identity management system02Luxoft - Case Study
  3. 3. Benefitsuu By supporting WS-Trust, PingTrust provides a Security Token Service that canparticipate in the Identity Metasystem.uu PingTrust enables identity information to be exchanged using industrystandard Web services regardless of the underlying platforms.03Luxoft - Case StudySAML 1.1SAML 2.0KERBEROSX.509USERNAME/PASSWORDCUSTOMPINGTRUSTTOKENINPUTSTrustedClaimsTOKENOUTPUTSSAML 1.1SAML 2.0CUSTOMRESULT
