What is Federation?

So, I just came back from ForgeRock Open Identity Summit. Along the way, completed my 2nd half-marathon last Sunday by taking part in The Wipro San Francisco Marathon.

During one of the presentations by Victor Ake, the product manager for OpenAM, I was enlightened by his simple illustration of what Federation is all about.

Hanseatic League (Hansa) Trade Confederation Centuries 13th – 17th

  • Trading outside the walls
  • Secure
  • Membership agreement
  • Follow protocol

And this is what Federation is all about. Simple, isn't it?
