While the use of Federated Identity Management and Single Sign-On based on the Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) standards becomes more and more important, there are quite a few European countries which are about to introduce national ID cards, which are compliant to the European Citizen Card (ECC) specification prTS 15480. The present contribution shows how these two seemingly opposite approaches may be integrated in a seamless and secure fashion such that it is possible to use the security features of the ECC in a federated scenario, which allows easy integration of Service Providers.
