To complete the implementation of a federated-identity network, you must integrate PingFederate programmatically with end-user applications and identity management (IdM) systems. Documentation for integration kits is available on the Ping Identity website.
This content provides an overview of the approaches to integrating systems and applications with PingFederate for browser-based single sign-on (SSO).
To enable both the identity provider (IdP) and service provider (SP) sides of this integration, Ping Identity provides integration kits, including various connectors for secure single sign-on (SSO) to software as a service (SaaS) providers. You can download these integration kits from PingFederate Downloads.
PingFederate also includes an SDK that software developers can use to write custom interfaces for specific systems. For more information, see the SDK Developer's Guide, available in the PingFederate distribution sdk directory.
For integration with the PingFederate WS-Trust security token service (STS), we provide a range of token translators. These plugin token processors for an IdP, and token generators for an SP, connect the STS with web service providers and clients for access to identity-enabled web services.
