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.
