Question: Can you elaborate on how security concerns were addressed about the form fill technology? Answer:The form fill technology in the Access Portal Service is built on Oracle ESSO Infrastructure. It leverages the same ESSO repository to store credentials and application configuration. It is compatible with the same business logic flows that exist in native ESSO . It fully supports bi-directional crypto between Java and CAPI code. The asymmetric key supports RSA and translation of PK pairs to/from MS PK & Java. The symmetric key support includes AES256 and TripleDES (for compat/upgrade). It fully supports encryption/decryption for ESSO Credentials in Java (compatible with CAPI). The Hashing / MessageDigest supports SHA1 and SHA 256 that is compatible with Java and CAPI
Question:Question from my Tweet - Will the new Access mgmt platform support SAML, OAuth as the standard instead of ObSSO token? Answer:We already support SAML and have now introduced support as an OAuth 2.0 server in PS2 while ensuring that these technologies work seamlessly in conjunction with session management and secure single sign on using OAM 11g technology.
Question:How do we provision deprovision users for Cloud Apps? Answer:We will provide auto provisioning of applications by allowing association to applications directly from the OAM console. Today auto provisioning is only possible using the Enterprise Single Sign-On provisioning gateway.
Question: Is the Blitzer application available as part of the Oracle Access Manager product? Answer: The Bitzer technology is available in the Oracle Mobile Security Suite
Question: Does OAP provides support for Legacy application (Thick client) (Mainframe apps)? Answer: Access Portal - at this time - is for web-based applications only
Question:Does Cloud Security Portal works with OAM 10G version? Answer: Access Portal is an OAM 11gR2 PS2 service
Question: how do you compare Oracle PS2 with REST APU based security appliance like layer 7 etc? Answer: The Oracle API Gateway (OAG) component provides REST API security in the same way. This is already available and is widely deployed by our customer base -- particularly for their consumer and mobile facing applications.
Question: What are licenses needed for Automated Suite Installation for IDM which was spoken about ? Answer: The automated installation requires only licenses for the software that you are installing. There's not a separate license for the automation.
Question: Do you have PII, PCI compliance patterns implemented for SaaS eCommerce Apps globally? Answer: May need more info to answer this - but if Oracle accepts credit cards for any of its service then obviously it will need to follow PCI etc. Here is a link to a paper on how we align with PCI controls with IDM
Question: Do you see a push in the federal marketplace to implement the Oracle soft token approach to security or is the marketplace still leveraging traditional 2 factor and mobile technologies are lagging behind? Answer: We see a push across all verticals to use the soft token approach
Question: As OMSS and IDM Suite come separately (2 different product suites) , then how exactly these get wired to achieve SSO. How difficult it is to wire it? Answer: These suites are separate from a licensing perspective but utilize the same underlying platform.
