Is access to federated clouds the killer app for FIM?
At a series of workshops in Helsinki this week the research communities explored how they can deploy federated identity management (FIM) systems for their users. A common theme was to use such an approach to provide access to cloud services from multiple suppliers and Bob Jones spoke about how Helix Nebula is working to put in place such a facility.
