Biometrics enabled Single Sign-On (SSO) using SAML

      No Comments on Biometrics enabled Single Sign-On (SSO) using SAML

Last week, I was at Biometric Consortium Conference 2006 to present “Biometric Single Sign-On using SAML: Architecture and Design Strategies” and demonstrate one of my favorite topic of interest – Stronger authentication solution that combines “Web Access Management/SSO/Federation” using “Biometrics”.  I used my previous JAAS Module integration work between Sun Java System Access Manager 6.x (SunONE Identity Server) and BioBex… Read more »
