Prabath Siriwardena - Connected Identity: Benefits, Risks & Challenges

SAML, OpenID, OpenID Connect, WS-Federation all support identity federation – cross domain authentication. But, can we always expect all the parties in a connected environment to support SAML, OpenID or OpenID Connect? Most of the federation systems we see today are in silos. It can be a silo of SAML federation, a silo of OpenID Connect federation or a silo of OpenID federation. Even in a given federation silo how do you scale with increasing number of service providers and identity providers? Each service provider has to trust each identity provider and this leads into the Spaghetti Identity anti-pattern.

Federation Silos and Spaghetti Identity are two anti-patterns that need to be addressed. This talk presents benefits, risks and challenges in a connected identity environment.
