With a constant eye on the future, you can be sure an investment in modern IAM solutions from Ping Identity will support your business today and for many years to come. In our recent webinar, Pamela Dingle, Ping's Principal Technical Architect reviews how we've integrated standards like OAuth 2.0, OpenID Connect, and SCIM into our products, and how we view new standards like RFC 7591 & 7592, PKCE, token binding, W3C Web Authentication, and AppAuth.


Watch the Emerging Standards on the Identity Landscape webinar replay now.


Our leadership in driving standards and adherence to supporting many profiles within each standard supports a long tail of capabilities. This allows our customers to future proof and become standards compliant without having to be experts in each standard. When the time comes to modernize your legacy web access management, multi-factor authentication, and directory solutions, look for strong standards support.


Leadership in Standards

PingFederate and PingAccess are among the first commercial solutions certified on the OpenID Connect Relying Party (RP) Conformance profile. The RP profile enables a single point of integration with OpenID Connect for all existing and future applications. Our OpenID Connect implementations seamlessly enables cross domain browser SSO for employees, partners, and consumers.


Future Ready

AppAuth is an OpenID Foundation sponsored SDK that enables a consistent and secure authentication model for mobile applications - including native SSO. By using AppAuth, you can give your developers a best practice without them having them become identity experts. Solutions from Ping Identity can natively recognize the AppAuth flow to ensure protection on both sides of the application-server transaction.


Investments in modern identity and access management systems can be significant. As such, these solutions should address use cases you wish to to enable today, as well as those over the next five to ten years. It can be difficult to predict business requirements that far in advance, but the depth of standards support offered by an IAM vendor today can indicate the range of legacy integrations and future use cases their solutions will enable.
