Project Moonshot: federated identity beyond the web-o-sphere!

There has been growing interest in the possibility of exploiting SAML-based federated identity for other applications “beyond Web SSO”. This typically reflects an ambition to extract a greater return on investment and a desire to introduce the benefits of federated identity to other applications.

This session will discuss a strategy to correct this omission in a manner that is independent of the application and authentication protocols, and the type of credentials used; while allowing the participating actors to exchange SAML messages without imposing the usability issues associated with Identity Provider discovery and multiple identities.
