RSA 2012: Oracle at the XACML Interop Showcase

The RSA conference is now in full gear. One of the highlights of the conference this year has been the XACML Interop Showcase. The OASIS group is leading a vendor interoperability showcase on the RSA exhibition floor (Booth #129). Check out the highlights of the XACML interop from this press release published by OASIS this week. 

An XACML based attribute based access control model does for authentication what Single Sign-On did for authentication several years ago. XACML 3 is the latest revision of this standard that enables extremely flexible policy based expressions for fine grained access control. Oracle has been spearheading XACML definition efforts since its inception. Oracle is currently the co-chair and editor of the XACML TC. When it comes to innovating industry standards, at Oracle we have been pushing hard to make sure that there are clearly defined standards. Come by the OASIS booth (#129) and check out the Oracle XACML demos. Oracle experts are available at the booth to answer questions.

Oracle Entitlements Server (OES) is the most mature and the most open external authorization solution in the industry today thanks to a consistent strategy of innovation, contribution and implementation of open standards. Kuppinger Cole recently released a paper describing how organizations can "future proof" their enterprise security with Oracle Entitlements Server.  By taking a declarative security approach, security policy can be flexible and distributed across multiple applications consistently with OES. You can get a copy of the report here.

And that’s not all. At the Oracle booth we have a number of cool identity management and security demos going on. Stop by the Oracle booth (#2425) and talk to our solution experts.  At the Oracle booth, you can enter to win a cool Oracle racing jacket.

To learn more Oracle Entitlements Server and its XACML support, register for this upcoming OES product review webcast from SANS.

SANS Webcast: Oracle Entitlement Server Product Review

SANS Information, Network, Computer Security Training, Research, Resources

Addressing modern enterprise security challenges such as insider threats, changing regulatory mandates, and fragmented application security, requires granular control of authorization and flexibility to change policies. External Authorization solutions address these challenges by decoupling  authorization policy administration from application development. There are a plethora of such solutions in the market  today but choosing the right or wrong solution can mean the difference between simplicity vs. complexity, between money saved vs. money spent, and between flexibility vs. rigidity. Join SANS and Oracle for a  live webcast on Mar 21  for a product review of Oracle Entitlements Server. 

In this webcast, SANS instructor Tanya Baccam will highlight critical capabilities and best practices that organizations should bear in mind when evaluating and deploying external authorization solutions. This webcast will also feature Roger Wigenstam, Director of Product Management at Oracle.  As an added bonus, participants who register for the webcast will receive a copy of the Product Review whitepaper that Tanya is putting together on the same  topic.
