Federated Identification testing

Cybrix performed testing on a leading vendors “Federated Identity” (FI) product to determine if the offering would meet specified requirements. The concept was that the FI would be able to determine through heuristic analysis whether or not the user who is logged in is who they say they are or if they have some kind of virus causing unwanted behavior by the computer. The FI system would then shut down the network connection the system was using and alert the Systems Administrator that there was an issue.
