Connected Identity: Benefits, Risks, and Challenges

SAML, OpenID, OpenID Connect, WS-Federation all support identity federation – in other words, all of these standards enable cross-domain authentication. Yet, most federation systems today operate in silos - i.e., a SAML federation silo, an OpenID Connect federation silo, an OpenID federation silo, etc. The ability to scale in a given federation silo is challenging given the increasing number of service and identity providers.

A Reference Architecture for Deploying WSO2 Middleware on Kubernetes

Kubernetes is an open source container management system for automating deployment, operations, scaling of containerized applications and creating cluster of containers. It provides advanced platform as a service (PaaS) features, such as container grouping, auto healing, horizontal auto-scaling, DNS management, load balancing, rolling out updates, and resource monitoring, and make container as a service (CaaS). Deploying WSO2 middleware on Kubernetes requires a Carbon membership scheme for Carbon cluster discovery, and Kubernetes artifacts for automating the deployment.
