You have to work with multiple heterogeneous user stores, authentication protocols , legacy systems, and more. Standards like SAML, OpenID, OpenID Connect, and WS-Federation all support identity federation and cross-domain authentication. But can we expect all parties in a federation use case to support these standards?
In addition, most federation systems we see today are in silos. It can be a silo of SAML federation, a silo of OpenID Connect federation or a silo of OpenID federation. It’s difficult to communicate between silos and this is a common challenge in identity and access management.
Given these challenges, it’s important that your IAM system can provide authentication that’s high in usability, security, and convenience for your users.
We will discuss how to break identity silos, build an identity federation, and secure your enterprise using adaptive authentication with WSO2’s open source Identity Server in this workshop.
