Oracle Identity Federation (OIF) is one of the core services of Oracle Access Management Suite Plus. OIF provides a complete, enterprise-level, carrier-grade solution for exchanging identity information securely between partners. With OIF, organizations can conduct business online with confidence, by providing to their business partners secure access to protected applications. OIF significantly reduces need to manage partner identities and lowers the cost of integrating with partners through standards-based federations.
This paper covers the business and technological challenges that drive the need for federated single sign-on, and detail how OIF is able to address these challenges. The functional capabilities described span both the 11g R1 and R2 releases; release-specific functionality will be explicitly called-out as such.
