      Through its support for the WS-Federation Passive Requestor Profile (WS-F PRP), Microsoft® Active Directory® Federation Services (ADFS) provides cross-domain Web single sign-on (SSO) interoperability with non-Microsoft federation solutions. IBM® Tivoli® Federated Identity Manager (TFIM)—which extends the SSO capabilities of IBM Tivoli Access Manager for ebusiness (TAM)—also supports WS-F PRP. This support enables cross-domain Web SSO between two environments with Active Directory and IBM Tivoli infrastructures.
      Building on existing documentation from both companies, this step-by-step guide walks you through how to set up a test lab environment of ADFS and IBM TFIM that performs cross-product identity federation. Both products perform both identity federation roles: account partner and resource partner. This guide also provides information about alternative federation configuration strategies.
