Microsoft to show off ID federation

Tuesday, 25 May 2004, 10:12 AM EST

The technology, which won't be available until the software giant releases Windows Server 2003 R2 in the second half of 2005, will interoperate with other companies' identity management software, said Michael Stephenson, lead program manager for Windows Server 2003.

"Federated identity lets companies securely extend their applications to suppliers and external users," he said. Though the software the company plans to show off won't be available anytime soon, Stephenson wanted to underscore that Microsoft is playing well with others: "We have been working closely with others in the industry on interoperability."
