Sun OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 Technical Overview


Auto federation will automatically federate a user's disparate provider accounts based on a common attribute. During SSO, if it is deemed a user at provider A and a user at provider B have the same value for the defined common attribute (for example, an email address), the two accounts will be federated without consent or interaction from the principal. For more information, see Part II, Federation, Web Services, and SAML Administration, in Sun OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 Administration Guide.
