Hands on Enterprise ID Management
This is primarily a practical workshop designed to give attendees a hands on example of how to quickly build an enterprise level federated Identity management system from the ground up using existing open source software. A short talk will be given to explain the plethora of competing IdM standards and advice will be given throughout the day on how to avoid some of the common misconceptions and pitfalls encountered when moving systems towards a federated model.
Training's objectives
You will learn the differences between the major existing Identity Management standards, some of the common pitfalls encountered when federating software and how to build a basic SAML 2 federation.

It is recommended that all attendees also attend the companion IdM educational course. All attendees will require a laptop (Windows, Linux or Mac) upon which they can act as the system's administrator.
Preferably this laptop will also have the following software installed:
- Sun Java Development Library and JRE installed, preferably the Sun Jdk V.6.*.
- A C development environment (gcc, ld, make, sed, perl, tar, gunzip) and associated headers.
- OpenSSL
It would also save time in the workshop if attendees could install an Apache web server, with support for dynamic modules prior to attending.

Who should attend?
Software Developers, System administrators, Application architects… anyone who has an interest in building federated Identity Management Systems.

Key topics
Federated Identity management – SAML 2.0, OpenID, XACML, Security.
