As a federation hub, PingFederate can bridge browser-based single sign-on (SSO) between identity providers and service providers, reducing administrative overhead.
Identity federation refers to the negotiation and management of federation settings with partners. The need to support different federation protocols can hinder application development and SSO implementation. Configuring PingFederate as a federation hub allows you to simplify application development and SSO implementation by extending federated access across partners supporting different federation standards. Configuring PingFederate as a federation hub also provides a centralized console to simplify SSO administration. Bridging identity providers (IdP) and service providers (SP) through a federation hub allows administrators to multiplex a single connection for multiple partners.
