A White Paper has been released by The Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc. title “Services-Oriented Architecture and Federated Identity Management” which addresses the need that SOA has for Federated Identity Management (FIM). This paper also addresses how the needs for Federated Identity Management can be addressed with IBM Federated Identity Manager.  IBM Tivoli FIM can act as a federated identity middleware bridge between external business partners and SOA security domains. In this role, Tivoli FIM, centralizes operations, enables rapid user provisioning, identity propagation, customizes business rules, and acts as a hub for token mediation, identity mapping, logging and reporting.



We at Peningo Systems strongly recommend this White Paper for any Tivoli Security Consultant / Security Architect who are involved the decision process of selecting and deploying a Federated Identity Management solution in an SOA environment.

About Edward Pellon

About Peningo Systems ( ) Peningo Systems and it founders have been involved in IT Consulting for over 30 years. Our goal is to support the individual IT Consultant by providing an avenue for them to be in contact directly to the end client. By doing this we reduce the many layers and tiers of organizations that are involved with placement of an IT Consultant. By reducing these layers and tiers, cost can be significantly reduced to the end client, while still providing the room for the Consultant to increase their revenues. Peningo is a for profit organization. We have decided to earn our “keep” by advocating, establishing and supporting a “market place” where the IT consultant and the “end client” may function without the interference of tiers of “prestigious” companies that bring to the consulting assignment excessive Markups and very little else. At Peningo we feel that the IT Consultant should be paid adequate rates commensurate with their skills and the personal sacrifice inherent in the life of an IT consultant. These allows us to field capable, motivated consultants that will contribute successfully to the “end client’s” systems development and implementation, while attracting to the IT industry new talent that otherwise would go to more lucrative pursuits. With the elimination of the “prestigious ones” there will be costs savings that will allow for the consultant to be paid a higher rate and for the client to reduce its costs. Both objectives represents Peningo’s Mission.
