IBM has release a RedBook Draft titled “Federated Identity Management and Web Services Security with IBM Tivoli Security Solutions. We at Peningo Systems strongly recommend this RedBook for any Tivoli Security Consultant, as well as, any security officers, administrators and architects who are considering implementing and deploying Federated Identity Management solution, or wish to understand and implement Web Services security and Federated Identity Management.
Federated Identity Management for many businesses is essential as it enable companies to optimally pursue business automation goals that best align with their business model, IT policies, security and privacy goals and requirements. For companies that have not implemented a Federated Identity Management solution, they have is no way in today’s world to trust identities belonging to their partners, suppliers, contracts and their outsourcers. This lack of trust means companies end-up creating online identities (and passwords) for all users. This approach is very costly, inefficient, and creates user frustration with multiple accounts and registrations for each Web Site. Federation is the set of business and technology agreements as well as policies that enable companies to optimally pursue business automation goals that best align with their business model, IT policies, security and privacy goals and requirements.
This book takes a close look at the trust infrastructure over which business federations are implemented. This RedBook covers important aspects of utilizing the Tivoli integrated Identity management architecture in order to build and deploy the Tivoli Federated Identity Management and Web Services Security components, which consist of Tivoli Federated Identity Manager, IBM WebSphere Application Server, and the IBM Integrated Solutions Console.
