The KuppingerCole conference is being held April 17-20, 2012 at the Dolce Ballhaus Forum in Munich, Germany. Extending Identity and Access Management into the Cloud Increasingly enterprises face the challenge of ensuring identity management across multiple software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications as well as their on-premise systems. In the process, organizations are realizing that they must adhere to open standards such as SAML2 Web single sign-on, OpenID, OAuth authentication and authorization, and XACML, to preserve interoperability and facilitate fine-grained authorization in a policy-driven manner. This session will examine the existing open standards that best address common cloud identity management challenges. It also will explore complex issues such as cross-domain authentication, provisioning, multi-tenancy, delegation and security. Additionally, the session will cover simple cloud identity management (SCIM), which serves as the latest emerging standard for provisioning.
