Organizations needed a way to unify authentication systems in the enterprise for easier management and better security. Single-sign-on was widely adopted and provided a solution for keeping one repository of usernames and passwords that could be used transparently across several internal applications. After analyzing various issues regarding authentication of user's in federated systems the authors have tried to find out the benefits of using OpenID and SAML as authentication protocols in cloud computing. This paper is on the simulation study of the authentication protocols SAML and OpenID in Cloudsim using NetBeans.
