Do WSO2 products support cross-domain federated identity management functionality to authenticate and authorize individuals of internal and external entities into the system, determine their permissions, and control access to the resources accordingly?

This can be achieved with WS-Trust (e.g., a service in WSO2 EI can be protected with a security policy to accept a security token issued by a trusted STS confirming the authentication of a user in a outside domain), XACML - PDP, PAP and PIP supported by WSO2 Identity Server. PEPs can communicate with the PDP of WSO2 Identity Server to grant authorization.
