Microsoft is hosting a technical session discussing solutions around Rights Management, Identity Management, and Federated Services.

We will also discuss how Forefront Identity Manager can be used to ensure that user objects and attributes are in sync and correctly provisioned across multiple directory systems/services within your organization. Finally, we will also cover how Active Directory Federation Services can allow third party access into your institution’s AD enabled applications without the need to maintain separate identities.
