Secure Attributes Exchange allows businesses to quickly implement standards-based federation without having to invest in expensive tooling to bridge incompatibilities.
The Secure Attributes Exchange feature provides a very simple mechanism that enables an application to communicate identity information with a partner application in two different domains. Communication can take place within a circle of trust using the SAMLv2 protocol. This functionality can be extended to support other federation specifications as well.
The Secure Attributes Exchange is a major step forward in the direction of identity federation enabling the legacy systems. Secure Attributes Exchange provides integration points, adapters and deployment guidance that can help facilitate the adoption of federation solutions.
