Identity federation governance

Catalyst for the identity ecosystem

In the Identity Federation Governance report see how governance schemes that have been built around federated trust frameworks are being formulated to provide the needed structure for identity federations.

About the report

Although in the secure identity and credential market, we still see large Identity Providers in the commercial sector that set their own rules to electronically collaborate with their business partners (e.g., supply chains), companies and organizations that need to collaborate outside their immediate environment have aligned to federation trust frameworks. This report focuses primarily on secure identity and credentials; however, to the extent that non-secure credential schemes illustrate the migration toward identity federation.

The target audiences are:

  1. Companies and organizations considering participation in an identity federation to facilitate the use of secure credentials
  2. Companies and organizations looking to stand up and operate an identity federation
  3. Government entities that operate applications requiring secure authentication
