The 33-year-old comes to Stoke after their first-choice gloveman Lee Grant joined Manchester United.
Stoke also have England keeper Jack Butland on their roster, although he is likely to leave the club following their relegation.
"He's [Federici] a player with bags of experience, with Reading notably and Bournemouth as well," Stoke boss Gary Rowett said.
"He's an excellent professional, great trainer and a very good goalkeeper who we see as one of three senior keepers who need to be pushing each other."
Federici has played 16 times for the Caltex Socceroos and went to the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ in South Africa as understudy to Mark Schwarzer.
He began his career with Wolverhampton Wanderers and also played for the likes of Reading – where he played for a decade and helped the club reach the 2015 FA Cup semi-finals.
