    My company is planning to host some applications on public cloud. For identity management in cloud, my understanding is that we have 3 options

    Federation
    Provisioning
    Identity as a service

    My understanding for federation is that any access to cloud based services, can be intercepted and pointed to identity provider within the organization, which will then perform authentication and authorization, provide a token and the application can inspect token and allow/disallow access

    For provisioning, instead of identity provider being located within organization, it can be located in cloud and it can refer to identity stores in cloud, which are provisioned in batch or real time by standards such as SPML or SCIM

    Is the above understanding correct?
