WS-Federation is part of the larger Web Services Security (WS-Security) framework, which provides a means for applying security to web services through the use of security tokens. WS-Federation uses Security Token Service (modeled on the WS-Trust specification) to allow providers in different security realms to broker trust using the information on identities, identity attributes and authentication, and provider federation.
WS-Trust, a specification in the WS-Security framework, enables federation by defining a Security Token Service (STS) and a protocol for requesting and issuing the security tokens.
WebAuthn is a standard for secure authentication on the Web. WebAuthn APIs that makes it easy for a relying party, such as a web service, to integrate strong authentication into applications. This means that web services can offer their users strong authentication with a choice of authenticators such as security keys or built-in platform authenticators such as biometric readers.
