Managing OpenID trusted sites with Tivoli Federated Identity Manager
IBM Tivoli Federated Identity Manager 6.2 (TFIM) introduces support for OpenID 1.1 and 2.0 authentication protocols. When configured in the role of an OpenID Provider (Identity Provider), TFIM allows end users to record choices about authenticating to trusted relying-party sites. For example a user may select "Allow authentication forever" to a particular relying-party, and may select which attributes they are willing to share with that site. By default TFIM stores these choices in persistent cookies on the user's browser. The cookie technique is effective, but not portable for users across different browsers. This article will demonstrate how to write your own plug-in for the storage and retrieval of user choices (for example to a database) via the TFIM TrustedSitesManager extension point.

User Centric Identity with Tivoli Federated Identity Manager, Part 2: Self registration and account recovery using information cards and OpenID
Attracting users to register at your retail Web site has always been a challenge. Not only do you need to have a fantastic service to offer, you also need to make the on-boarding process as simple and convenient as possible. Traditional federation technologies like Liberty and SAML allowed companies to collaborate with tightly-coupled user bases by establishing 1:1 or many:few relationships; however, that model does not scale to the true retail space. User Centric Identity management technologies like OpenID and Information Cards allow people to manage their own identity attributes at distributed "Identity Providers" (including self-issued Information Cards). This article will demonstrate how to implement self-registration using an Information Card or OpenID (with the simple registration extension - SREG). Automated recovery of an account is also implemented, such as when the user centric credential with which it was registered is lost. Sample code is provided to rapidly enable these capabilities with IBM Tivoli Federated Identity Manager 6.2.

SOA: Managing identity contexts across service requests
Businesses embrace Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) to help their IT meet the needs of their business. The loose coupling of services and their distributed nature across organizations and trust boundaries presents a number of challenges. When it comes to the reuse of existing applications or service connectivity across organizational or technological boundaries, the identity systems can vary and so can the credential systems. Managing, mapping, and propagating identity across these environments is necessary. This article discusses the business challenges when managing identity contexts in Web services and SOA. It outlines the importance of creating solutions based on standards. The security token service (STS) capability in IBM Tivoli Federated Identity Manager (TFIM) is a key building block that can be used in solutions to address these identity propagation requirements. This article explains the capabilities of the STS and outlines architectural approaches using TFIM to solve these needs.
