Clients/Consumers

Client apps and services that use these core components are expected to include:

  • Relying Party (Service Provider)s can use the "RP Enablement" component to add support (e.g. to validate tokens) for identity protoocols
  • Local Apps (e.g. Eclipse RCP apps and other enterprise apps) can invoke a local instance of RP Protocol Support that uses a locally running ISS Client UI (card selector UI).
