Abstract

Federated identity facilitates the controlled sharing of information about people (a.k.a. "principals"), commonly across organizational boundaries. This avoids redundant registration of principals who operate in and across multiple domains, both reducing the administrative overhead for the organizations involved and improving the usability of systems for the principal. Simultaneously, it can also help address privacy-related concerns, along with the regulatory and statutory requirements of some jurisdictions.

  Application Bridging for Federated Access Beyond Web (ABFAB) Use Cases

Abstract

   Federated identity is typically associated with web-based services at    present, but there is growing interest in its application in non-web-    based contexts.  The goal of this memo is to document a selection of    the wide variety of these contexts whose user experience could be    improved through the use of technologies based on the Application    Bridging for Federated Access Beyond web (ABFAB) architecture and    specifications.
