Novell unveiled support for a federation protocol in its identity software that represents the first fruits of its 18-month-old interoperability lab work with Microsoft as it relates to access management.

Novell released version 3.1 of its Access Manager with support for the WS-Federation protocol that is prominent in Microsoft’s Active Directory Federation Services and its forthcoming Geneva identity platform for the cloud.

With WS-Federation support, Access Manager offers integration with SharePoint Server,CardSpace and Microsoft’s claims-based authentication model.

Access Manager now can provide non-Active Directory users with single sign-on to Windows-based Web applications.
