PingFederate’s lightweight, standalone architecture allows its server to integrate and coexist with existing home-grown and commercial identity management (IdM) systems and applications to provide the benefits of standards-based single sign-on (SSO) and API security integration without the cost and complexity of deploying a complete IdM system.
PingFederate provides a suite of quick-install integration kits configured from within the PingFederate administrative console to complete the first- and last-mile integration with your existing IdM systems and web applications. Download PingFederate integration kits from the Ping Identity Downloads website.
Integration kits enable rapid session integration with both existing authentication services and target applications. PingFederate also includes a Software Development Kit (SDK) for creating custom integrations. For more information, see SSO integration kits and adapters.
Ping Identity offers special token processors for an IdP and token generators for an SP to enable the WS-Trust security token service (STS) to validate and issue a variety of token types. These plug-ins supplement built-in SAML token processing and generation and handle the local identity tokens required in many security contexts. For more information, see Token processors and generators.
SaaS connectors offer a streamlined approach for browser-based SSO to selected SaaS providers, including automatic user provisioning and deprovisioning. The connector packages include quick-connection templates, which automatically configure endpoints and other connection information for each provider. For more information, see Outbound provisioning for IdPs.
Cloud identity connectors
Ping Identity offers social identity integration with social networking sites, including Google, Yahoo!, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook. Connectors leverage OpenID 2.0 or user logins for registration and access to cloud-based applications.
PingOne for Enterprise is a cloud-based identity as a service (IDaaS) framework for secure identity access management. Integrating PingOne for Enterprise with PingFederate provides a powerful solution combining the benefits of an on-premise deployment with the flexibility of a cloud solution.
