Globe Trotters: The Difference between Authentication and Authorization
By Tanu Sood-Oracle on Dec 28, 2012
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.
