Globe Trotters: The Difference between Authentication and Authorization

Meet Christian Patrascu. Christian is Senior Group Manager with Oracle. A seasoned Security professional and a reputed Identity Management expert, Christian is a member of the EMEA outbound Product Management team that drives sales and adoption of Oracle Fusion Middleware within the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region. Oracle Fusion Middleware is a portfolio of leading, standards-based and customer-proven software products that spans a range of tools and services from J2EE and developer tools, to integration services, business intelligence, collaboration, content management and Identity Management.

Christian recently sat down for an interview with Sebastian Graf (DOAG Head of the SIG BPM) where he discussed the difference between Authentication and Authorization and the importance of both in an enterprise' end-to-end security strategy. DOAG (Deutsche Oracle User Group) is one of the largest organized and independent Oracle user groups in Europe.

The discussion on authentication and authorization is especially relevant in today's "anytime, anywhere" world where business and personal boundaries have blurred and users are looking for a seamless experience between their social and business channels via mobile devices and more. So, as we close out 2012 and look to 2013, we thought this video interview would be apt for the last edition of Globe Trotters for 2012.

We wish you all a very safe and Happy New Year and look forward to engaging with you in more security discussions.

Amit Jasuja's Session at Gartner IAM with Ranjan Jain of Cisco

If you did not get a chance to attend Amit Jasuja's session at Gartner IAM this week in Las Vegas, here is a summary of the session and a copy of the slides. The agenda featured an introduction by Ray Wagner, Managing VP at Gartner, followed by Amit discussing the trends in Identity and Access Management shaping Oracle's strategy.

Today we are seeing the largest re-architecture in a decade. Every business from manufacturing to retail is transforming the way they do business. Manufacturing companies are becoming manufacturing services companies. Retail organizations are embracing social retail. Healthcare is being delivered on-line around the clock. Identity Management is at the center of the transformation. Whether you are Toyota embracing a social network for cars or launching the next Iphone, the Identity of the user provides context to enable the interaction and secure the experience. All of these require greater attention to the context of the user and externalizing applications for customers and employees. 

Ranjan discussed how Cisco is transforming  by integrating 1800 applications to a single access management framework and consolidating 3M users across 4 data centers to support internal and external processes. David Lee demonstrated how to use Oracle Access Manager 11g R2 on a mobile application to sign-on across multiple applications while connecting mobile applications to a single access control policy.

Amit Jasuja, Senior Vice President, Identity Management Oracle
Ranjan Jain, Enterprise Architect, Cisco

As enterprises embrace mobile and social applications, security and audit have moved into the foreground. The way we work and connect with our customers is changing dramatically and this means re-thinking how we secure the interaction and enable the experience. Work is an activity not a place - mobile access enables employees to work from any device anywhere and anytime. Organizations are utilizing "flash teams" - instead of a dedicated group to solve problems, organizations utilize more cross-functional teams. Work is now social - email collaboration will be replaced by dynamic social media style interaction. In this session, we will examine these three secular trends and discuss how organizations can secure the work experience and adapt audit controls to address the "new work order".
