In this article we show you how to enable your ASP.NET applications for federated single sign-on utilizing the Tivoli® Federated Identity Manager Business Gateway (FIM-BG) and the plug-in it provides for Microsoft® Internet Information Server Version 6 (IIS). Your existing forms-based authentication mechanism can be expanded to include support for participating in a federated single sign-on using the SAML 1.0, 1.1 or 2.0 protocols. Here, we take a sample ASP.NET application through the process of federated single sign-on enablement using FIM-BG and the plug-in for IIS.
