Zebra Copy: A Reference Implementation of Federated Access Management

Li, Jun; Karp, Alan H.


Keyword(s): Services Oriented Architecture; SOA; web services; access control; Federated Identity Management; FIdM

Abstract: Federated Identity Management (FIdM) is being applied to Services Oriented Architecture (SOA) deployments that cross enterprise boundaries. These systems have been found to be inflexible, unscalable, and difficult to use, manage, and upgrade. We contend that a major reason for these difficulties is that FIdM solves the wrong problem. Specifically, FIdM says nothing about federating access policies. What is needed instead of FIdM is a system for Federated Access Management (FAccM). This report demonstrates the benefits of FAccM over FIdM for SOA deployments and includes a step-by-step explanation of code needed to deploy, manage, and use a sample service.
