Executive Summary

Intel IT has developed a strategy and process for providing seamless user access to externally hosted applications. Single sign-on (SSO) enables centralized storage of sensitive user profile information through the use of standards-based identity federation, and this information remains under Intel's sole control. Users appreciate that a single password allows them access to both internal and external Web sites. This type of enhanced data security is especially important for closed communities, as it helps ensure customer privacy and Web security for all external Web sites. SSO also reduces maintenance costs and increases productivity, because there is no need to update user ID information in multiple places.
