I saw this today on both Andre Durand’s and Ping Identity’s blogs.
I was sat with a smug look on my face while I was reading this.
Whilst I was on-site implementing a federation solution utilising CA eTrust SiteMinder last year (October 2005), I remember telling my CA Partner Manager at the time that CA should either buy Ping Identity or at least OEM PingFederate to replace what CA called their “Affiliate Agent”.
It seems that someone was listening to me! I don’t profess to have instigated this, but at least it shows that I do have SOME sensible ideas!!
