The Identity of Everything - CSO Summit Open World

A recent Cisco report estimates by 2020 there will be more than 50 billion devices world wide while the human population will still be under 8 billion people. This short term trend will change the landscape of identity and access management and change the security requirements of enterprises everywhere. While today security executives are concerned with mobile phones and laptops, tomorrow they will be concerned about automobiles, aircraft and projectors on their networks. Each device is a new identity and each user that interacts with the device has a separate context. As a reference, see the paper Identity at Internet Scale Here are some of the new security requirements:

  • Multi-user devices 
  • Dynamic user volumes 
  • User authentication on the device
  • Service availability
  • Encryption of data at rest and in flight
  • Secure container on the device
  • Device authentication
  • User authentication 

The devices themselves will interact very differently since they must now communicate with other devices and humans. Here is a great youtube video that paints a very interesting and perplexing picture of the future.

From the video, a few interesting things happen.

  • The device communication is very personal and follows our social media conventions
  • The devices must trust the people involved in the interaction and people have to trust the devices 
  • The scale of the interaction grows geometrically as more devices and users collaborate

Here are the slides from the recent CSO Summit at Open World. Oracle's approach is a singular platform for all devices that manage device identity and user identity. 

Oracle OpenWorld 2013: Leveraging the Cloud to simplify your Identity Management implementation (CON8836)

Applications moved into a managed cloud environment need Identity and Access Management services to ensure user accounts, passwords and roles are all managed properly for the purposes of Security and Audit.  In this session, we’ll discuss the key considerations for a Hosted Private Cloud deployment of Oracle applications integrated with Oracle Identity Management Suite to provide self-service account provisioning and federated Single Sign-on (SSO) for an organization’s internal and external users. You will also hear from a customer on how their key business requirements were addressed with Managed Identity Services from Oracle running at Oracle. This was one of many of highly attended conference sessions at this year's Oracle OpenWorld 2013.  If you missed this, or would like a second opportunity to see this presentation in slide form, join us by checking out "Leveraging the Cloud to simplify your Identity Management implementation " today.

Oracle OpenWorld 2013: Next Generation Optimized Directory - Oracle Unified Directory (CON9024)

With new computing technologies to transform business, is your underlying directory infrastructure ready to support mobile, cloud and social networking? How can I simplify my directory architecture but deliver high scalability, availability and performance? How to leverage directory to easily make your applications location aware and social relationship aware?  How do I migrate existing directories to OUD? How to optimize OUD performance on T5/ T4 hardware? This was one of many of highly attended conference sessions at this year's Oracle OpenWorld 2013.  If you missed this, or would like a second opportunity to see this presentation in slide form, join us by checking out "Next Generation Optimized Directory" today.
