Securing Access to SaaS Apps with GSMA Mobile Connect

Webinar Slides

Mobile Connect is an initiative by GSM Association (GSMA). GSMA represents the interests of mobile operators worldwide, uniting nearly 800 operators with more than 250 companies in the broader mobile ecosystem. The Mobile Connect initiative focuses on building a standard for user authentication and identity services between mobile network operators and service providers.

SAML, OpenID Connect and WS-Federation have become the most popular ways of implementing identity federation and single sign-on (SSO) for many service providers. This webinar will explore an approach to help service providers migrate from their existing protocols to Mobile Connect in a zero-code-change approach, with the WSO2 Identity Server. It will also discuss how to secure access to your most precious SaaS applications with Mobile Connect.
