The Id Element Weekly: Vijay Gajjala on Geneva Server

One more week has passed, and The Id Element show on Channel9 reached a whopping 56K combined views. That’s awesome, especially considering that we were expecting all eyes on RSA (speaking of which, check out Scott’s keynote: highly recommended).

This week our fearless Donovan went to visit Vijay, another historical figure in the Federated Identity team, and had a nice chat about Geneva Server. As the caption recites:


In this episode Vijay Gajjala, Sr. Program Manager on the Federated Identity team, discusses some of the core challenges around building the Geneva Server and describes the key investments the team made in the Beta 1 release. These investments include implementation of the WS-Federation, WS-Trust and SAML 2.0 protocols (Geneva Server can serve as IdP for a SAML 2.0 SP), harmonized metadata for easy application registration and federation setup, information card issuance and support for identity delegation. He also shares the goals for the IT Pro experience when using Geneva Server and for developers when they need to wire up applications to the server.

Enjoy the show!
