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.
