  • Consumer cloud computing paradigm has emerged as the natural evolution and integration of advances in several areas including distributed computing, service oriented architecture and consumer electronics. In this complex ecosystem, security and identity management challenges have cropped up, given their dynamism and heterogeneity. As a direct consequence, dynamic federated identity management with privacy improvements has arisen as an indispensable mechanism to enable the global scalability and usability that are required for the successful implantation of Cloud technologies. With these requirements in mind, we present an IdM architecture based on privacy and reputation extensions compliance with the SAMLv2/ID-FF standards1.
