Podcast: User-centric identity in the enterprise

For most IT organizations, federated identity has proved a difficult dream. Not so much a technical nightmare, but a persistent policy and governance problem constantly pushing the promise of federation further out of reach.

Add to that the almost chaotic expansion of partnerships and interconnected services required to remain competitive thanks to the Web, and it becomes easy to see why some enterprises are already looking to user-centric identity -- technology born of the Web 2.0 era, placing users at the center of identity transactions -- to help realize their federation dreams.

InfoWorld Contributing Editor Phil Windley talks with Mike Neuenschwander, vice president and research director at Burton Group, about the state of federated identity in the enterprise, delving deep into the business proposition user-centric identity presents.
