As a federation hub, PingFederate can bridge browser-based SSO between IdPs and SPs, reducing administrative overhead.
Identity federation refers to the negotiation and management of federation settings with partners. Supporting 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
- Provides a centralized console to simplify SSO administration
Bridging IdPs and SPs through a federation hub allows you to multiplex a single connection for multiple partners.
