ALBINO PEREIRA, André; M. SOBRAL, João Bosco  y  WESTPHALL, Carla M.. Towards Scalability for Federated Identity Systems for Cloud-Based Environments. CLEIej [online]. 2015, vol.18, n.3, pp.3-3. ISSN 0717-5000.

As multi-tenant authorization and federated identity management systems for cloud computing matures, the provisioning of services using this paradigm allows maximum efficiency on business that requires access control. However, regarding scalability support, mainly horizontal, some characteristics of those approaches based on central authentication protocols are problematic. The objective of this work is to address these issues by providing an adapted sticky-session mechanism for a Shibboleth architecture using JASIG CAS. This alternative, compared with the recommended distributed memory approach, shown improved efficiency and less overall infrastructure complexity, as well as demanding less 58% of computational resources and improving throughput (requests per second) by 11%.

Palabras clave : scalability; federated identity; cloud computing; authentication; access control.
