PingFederate empowers administrators to deliver a secure and easy-to-use customer authentication, registration, and profile management solution. This solution leverages the HTML Form Adapter to offer users the options to authenticate via third-party identity providers, self-register as part of the sign-on experience, and manage their accounts through a self-service profile management page.

Like other user-facing screens, administrators can customize and localize both the registration and profile management pages to present a consistent branding experience based on the needs of the users and the organizations.

Furthermore, administrators may allow users to leverage their existing identities from third-party identity providers. Any IdP connection or IdP adapter (such as the LinkedIn Cloud Identity Connector) can be used as an authentication source to a third-party identity provider. This optional capability enables a mapping configuration between the attributes returned by the identity provider and the fields within the registration page, thus streamlining the registration process.

Depending on the requirements and configuration of existing components, the configuration process may involve changes to these configuration components: authentication policy contracts, local identity profiles, HTML Form Adapter instances, and IdP authentication policies.
