Federation Manager Bootcamp - we have contact...

As discussed in a previous posting, Sun Learning has come up with a great Federation bootcamp. I’ve received many inquiries for additional information and I’m happy to report that there is now an official email address fm-bootcamp-AT-sun-DOT-com you can contact (remember, this for Sun’s employees & partners for now).

Below is the “official” description of what’s on the menu for 5 great days...

COURSE DESCRIPTION

The Federation Boot Camp course provides students with an opportunity to

learn about identity federation. Students learn about federation

concepts and specifications, then use Sun Java(TM) System Federation

Manager (Federation Manager) and Sun Java(TM) System Access Manager

(Access Manager) as a platform for demonstrating the concepts.

Topics include federation concepts, federation specifications and standards,

implementing federation frameworks, web services, programming and

customization, privacy, security, and high availability.

This course does not cover Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP),

Sun Java System Directory Server (Directory Server) concepts, and Sun

Java System Web Server (Web Server) concepts.

Students spend the majority of class time gaining hands-on experience

performing a variety of tasks typical of a federation deployment. Students

are quizzed at the end of each lecture and tested at the end of the boot camp.

WHO CAN BENEFIT

Students who can benefit from this course are consultants, architects,

systems engineers, technical support personnel, and systems administrators

specializing in designing and deploying federation services using

Federation Manager and Access Manager software.
