Federated Identity Management

Federated identity management enables identity information to be developed and shared among several entities and across trust domains. Tools and standards permit identity attributes to be transferred from one trusted identifying and authenticating entity to another for authentication, authorization and other purposes, thus providing “single sign-on” convenience and efficiencies to identified individuals, identity providers and relying parties.
