Interoperability between applications in heterogeneous technology environments is essential to successful collaboration. Sun and Microsoft are taking interoperability to a new level by utilizing the SAML federation standard in both the Sun OpenSSO Enterprise federation solution and the forthcoming Microsoft “Geneva” Server federation solution.
As part of these efforts, Sun and Microsoft have created a new whitepaper: "Microsoft "Geneva" Server and Sun OpenSSO - Enabling Unprecedented Collaboration Across Heterogeneous IT Environments" available for download here.
Sun's Chief Identity Management Officer, Daniel Raskin, posted his blog entry on OpenSSO & "Geneva" here.
Microsoft released their "Geneva" beta 2 this week and offers some commentary on interoperability over on their Forefront blog.
