Using Token Translation and SAML to link domains together

Token translation using SAML is now quite an established way to allow applications in one security domain to communicate with applications in another security domain, on behalf of a user whole identity does not have to also flow with the data. For more info go to Vordel's government page and then click on "Secure Cross-Domain".

Can a similar architecture be used for SOA-to-Cloud and "inter-cloud" scenarios? The answer is "yes - watch this space...."
