6.4 Setting Up Federation with Third-Party Providers

Setting up federation with providers other than Novell Identity Servers requires the same basic tasks as setting up federation with Novell Identity Servers, with some modifications.

When you set up federation with identity providers and service providers that are controlled by a single company, you have access to the Administration Consoles for both Identity Servers and know the admin credentials. When setting up federation with another company, additional steps are required.

For a sample implementation with a third-party provider that explains the modifications that were required to set up the federation, see “SAML 1.1 with Concur”.
