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.

7:15 a.m. - 8:00 a.m., Octavius 16

Speakers:
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".

IDC's Sally Hudson on Securing Mobile Access

After the launch of Identity Management 11g R2, Oracle Magazine writer David Baum sat down with Sally Hudson, research director of security products at International Data Corporation (IDC) to get her perspective on securing mobile access.  Below is an excerpt from the interview. The complete article can be found here.

"We’re seeing a much more diverse landscape of devices, computing habits, and access methods from outside of the corporate network. This trend necessitates a total security picture with different layers and end-point controls. It used to be just about keeping people out. Now, you have to let people in. Most organizations are looking toward multifaceted authentication—beyond the password—by using biometrics, soft tokens, and so forth to do this securely. Corporate IT strategies have evolved beyond just identity and access management to encompass a layered security approach that extends from the end point to the data center. It involves multiple technologies and touch points and coordination, with different layers of security from the internals of the database to the edge of the network." ( Sally Hudson, Oracle Mag Sept/Oct 2012)

As the landscape changes you can find out how to adapt by reading Oracle's strategy paper on providing identity services at Internet scale

The Threats are Outside the Risks are Inside

In the past few years we have seen the threats against the enterprise increase dramatically. The number of attacks originating externally have outpaced the number of attacks driven by insiders. During the CSO Summit at Open World, Sonny Singh examined the phenomenon and shared Oracle's security story. While the threats are largely external, the risks are largely inside.

Criminals are going after our sensitive customer data. In some cases the attacks are advanced. In most cases the attacks are very simple. Taking a security inside out approach can provide a cost effective way to secure an organization's most valuable assets.

Executive Edge: It's the end of work as we know it


If you are at Oracle Open World, it has been an exciting couple of days from Larry's keynote to the events at the Executive Edge. The CSO Summit was included as a program within the Executive Edge this year. The day started with a great presentation from Joel Brenner, author of "America The Vulnerable", as he discussed the impact of state sponsored espionage on businesses. The opportunity for every business is to turn security into a business advantage. As we enter an in-hospitable security climate, every business has to adapt to the security climate change. 

Amit Jasuja's presentation focused on how customers can secure the new digital experience. As every sector of the economy transforms to adapt to changing global economic pressures, every business has to adapt. For IT organizations, the biggest transformation will involve cloud, mobile and social. Organizations that can get security right in the "new work order" will have an advantage. It is truly the end of work as we know it.  The "new work order" means working anytime and anywhere. The office is anywhere we want it to be because work is not a place it is an activity. Below is a copy of Amit Jasuja's presentation.

Mobile and Social Sign On with Oracle Access Management

Oracle Identity Management 11g Release 2 provides an innovative platform that secures access from mobile devices and enables applications to consume social identities. This capability is especially significant as usage of mobile devices and social media skyrockets and employees are increasingly using their own mobile devices to access corporate resources, which in turn makes it much more challenging for IT organizations to enforce and maintain their audit, compliance, and privacy requirements.

Recently, I sat down with Dan Killmer, Principal Product Manager for Oracle Mobile and Social Access Management. We discussed how Oracle’s latest innovation in Identity Management around Mobile and Social Sign On can simplify security and access management challenges posed by the widespread adoption of mobile devices in the enterprise.

Adaptive Access in Oracle Identity Management 11gR2

[Guest Post by Mark Karlstrand] 

Mark Karlstrand is a Senior Manager of Product Management at Oracle focused on innovative security for enterprise web and mobile applications. Over the last sixteen years Mark has served as director in a number of tech startups before joining Oracle in 2007. Working with a team of talented architects and engineers Mark developed Oracle Adaptive Access Manager, a best of breed access security solution.

With the latest release of Oracle Identity Management, Oracle is delivering some dramatic context-aware security enhancements as part of its Access Management solution stack. There are a couple of different market trends driving these enhancements. Firstly, online threats are constantly evolving which results in the need for adaptive access security mechanisms. Secondly, the rapid adoption of mobile computing and migration of fraud attacks to mobile devices is pushing enterprises, banks and e-commerce providers to demand sophisticated fraud prevention capabilities across both web and mobile channels. Recently Gartner put out a research note which estimates that by year end 2013, 12.5% of all ecommerce transactions will be conducted via mobile devices. The latest release of Oracle Access Management includes significant features within Adaptive Access to strengthen web, cloud and mobile access security.

  • Risk-Aware Access Management: Oracle Access Management now provides a seamless experience when users navigate between low risk and high risk resources. Higher risk resources are protected by risk-based adaptive authentication which is transparent to end users unless their behavior is abnormal. For example, if a user accesses a low risk application via their web single sign on password then attempts to access a high risk application while on a trip to a country they rarely visit the user may be asked to enter a one-time password delivered to their cell phone.
  • Adaptive Access for Mobile Computing: Adaptive Access capabilities have been integrated with the new Mobile and Social component of Oracle Access Management. This provides advanced security features including device registration and tracking, location awareness, lost/stolen device control and risk based authentication to secure access via both iOS native applications and mobile browsers. This allows customers to extend their enterprise web access security to cover mobile use cases which maintains manageability and centralized control across channels of access.
  • Auto Learning for Transactions: We have extended our auto-learning functionality to cover application transaction use cases. Our Adaptive Access solution profiles transactional behaviors and detects anomalies in real-time. For instance, an online banking provider can detect transactional anomalies that may occur if a user’s browser is infected with “man-in-the-browser” malware. If for example, malware alters the destination account in a funds transfer transaction, this could be detected. The solution tracks the frequency of data combinations and determines the risk in real-time by taking into account historical behavior.
  • Access Monitoring: With Adaptive Access, we also enable healthcare organizations to meet tough compliance requirements related to tight controls on electronic medical record access. HIPAA/HITECH requires providers to take a more proactive posture and our real-time analytics technology is helping them achieve this goal.
  • Cloud Service Provider Layered Security: Security concerns are still a top item preventing many businesses from taking advantage of cloud service offerings. Now, cloud service providers can easily provide context-aware layered access security even when users authenticate within their own enterprise environment and access cloud services via federation. For example, If a user authenticates to their corporate SSO then navigates to the cloud service risk analysis and identity verification can be applied if the user attempts to access any high risk service or application in the cloud.

Mobile and Social Sign On with Oracle Identity Management 11gR2

The proliferation of mobile devices and competitive reasons are compelling enterprises to offer access to commonly used business applications for customers and employees using personal mobile devices. But many applications don’t have visibility into the security posture of the device making it challenging to enforce audit, compliance, and privacy requirements.  

As part of Oracle Identity Management 11gR2, Oracle is now offering a mobile and social sign on solution as part of its Access Management solution stack.With the innovative Mobile and Social Access Management capability, organizations can extend SSO to mobile applications and secure applications and data regardless of which device is being used. Also organizations can consume identities from popular social networks (Facebook, Google, Yahoo, Twitter, and LinkedIn) for signing on users to consumer-facing and other low risk applications, providing a seamless user experience for users without the burden of forcing additional registration and logins.

The solution also comes with an SDK with REST APIs that developers can leverage to integrate custom mobile applications with commonly used identity management functions like authentication, credential management, secondary authentication, device fingerprinting, and session management. The SDK supports OAuth and OpenID, two of the most commonly used user-centric identity frameworks in the industry. So developers can use the SDK to enable applications to consume social identities.

This offers several compelling benefits to organizations:

  • Tighter Security for Mobile Enterprise: Organizations can now secure applications and data regardless of which device is being used to access those applications.
  • Easier Identity Integration for Mobile Apps: This provides a programmatic and flexible way to integrate native mobile apps and web apps with identity services offered by enterprises such as authentication and SSO.
  • Sign On from Social Networks: Organizations can consume internet identities for signing on users to low value applications like blogs, community forums, etc. This capability can also be leveraged by consumer facing applications to provide a seamless user experience for users without the burden of forcing additional registration and logins.

Securing Mobile Apps in a Bring Your Own Device World

As more and more business users begin using their personal devices to access corporate information and resources, the number of network access requests has risen dramatically.  Access Management products and strategies that were based on an employee accessing network resources from a single desktop PC were never designed to monitor and manage an employee that is using a desktop and a laptop, a tablet, and a smartphone all from outside the corporate network, and possibly from an unsecured wireless public network.

A new approach is needed to manage the types and frequency of mobile app access requests - an integrated Platform Approach to Identity and Access Management that is location and device aware, that can warn you of unusual or high risk access.  A platform that provides standard APIs so you can manage your mobile apps the same way that you manage your enterprise apps.

View the slideshow below to see how the Oracle Identity Management platform can help you secure your mobile applications and data in a Bring Your Own Device World.

Keeping Entitlements in Check

Thanks for going the webcast on keeping entitlements in check. As a follow up, I have attached the slides to the webcast. The webcast will be available on demand shortly via IOUG.   A few key takeaways:

  • Application security means applying both preventive and detective controls. Audit and security groups need the combination of both access certification and runtime dynamic authorization.
  • Today, security policy is largely fragmented and brittle to change. The result is audit exposure for highly regulated applications. 
  • By addressing the entire value chain of application security with a comprehensive platform approach, organizations can reduce the risk and improve compliance.

Platform Approach to Identity in The Cloud

If you missed the webcast, you can register to view the on-demand version at this link:  Register Here.  There were a few questions during the webcast and we have captured the answers below. In addition, you can find an embedded copy of the slides below as well.

1. How is data privacy handled in a cloud identity solution and can you share any thoughts especially on cross-border privacy restriction?

A: Private data is not stored in the cloud. As part of the implementation, the PII data and sensitive information is filtered so that confidential information is not used.

2. Can you describe how you have PeopleSoft integrated with OIM?

A: PeopleSoft is used to source new user identity information. There is not a provisioning connection back into PeopleSoft 

3. Do you still keeping some Manual ID provisioning? If does, is this because of some legacy plataforms dependencies or you are looking forward to migrate to Oracle IdM?

A: Yes. There is a process to do provisioning manually in the event the cloud environment is unavailable.

4. Can you provide some insight about how OIM and OIA help you to reduce audit findings due to the closed loop remediation process?

A: Today ManpowerGroup is not doing closed loop remediation, but this is a desirable end state and a next step.

Scaling Identity to Internet proportions

Mike recently presented at the Kuppinger Cole conference in Munich and discussed how a platform approach can enable companies to scale identity to Internet proportions. Because the platform provides a cross-organization approach, the platform is more resilient in times of change. Mike discussed how a platform can be resilient and self-reinforcing.

Resilience is often characterized by systems that are adaptive – adaptive means providing a congruent level of security and policy across the organization. For example, web access control created resilience for web apps because a central policy could be enforced across any number of web containers and an organization could quickly change policy to adapt at a peripheral end-point. The more web-access agents we added, the more resilient the system. To extend the metaphor, as a common Identity Platform is deployed across departments, the metrics become congruent and the organization can more quickly adapt.  See Mike's slides below.
