Sun OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 Deployment Planning Guide


The main drawback to using WS-Federation is that currently only limited support or configuration help is offered for ADFS claims within OpenSSO Enterprise. For example, the Microsoft Administering Active Directory Federation Services Guide depicts the use of group claims and their mapping between realms. The use of group claims eliminates the need to map user principals information from one realm to the next in a federated environment. These claims, based on group memberships, have not been tested in this deployment example configuration.
