The identity and access management landscape has evolved rapidly in recent years with a multitude of standards, such as OpenID Connect, eclipsing the world of identity. As a result, there’s an urgent need to re-think identity management (IDM) solutions and ensure that they are able to seamlessly adapt to these changes. Given that acquisitions, mergers and directly on-boarding customers seem to be the trend today, concepts such as bring your own identity, just-in-time provisioning and dynamically discovered federation are real needs of project managers and architects.
WSO2 Identity Server 5.0 takes a rejuvenated approach to successfully eradicate complexities in various identity and access management standards. It abstracts the interactions between an application and an IDM from the perspective of a service provider and identity provider.
This session will discuss the following:
Advantages of the new chained collaborative federation capability in WSO2 Identity Server 5.0
How to configure and govern a set of identity providers, selectively associate them to a set of service providers and carry out federated authentication and provisioning
Chain of control over what each entity in the system can do: propagated from a tenant administrator to an application developer to an end user
