Identity Context support in OWSM - 11g

Here is another quick post about yet another new feature in PS6. As many of you know we have supported identity propagation for a long time. However as things have evolved - it is clear that propagating just identities is not sufficient. We need to propagate additional contextual information - this may include for ex:

a) In the Mobile world - for example this can include whether the user is using a device that is jail broken or not

b) In the Banking space - the geo-location from where an ATM debit card or credit card might be getting used by the user.

In fact Marc Boroditsky spoke about this in Oracle Open World 2012.

This sets up the need for propagating not just the identity but the entire context! In PS6 we have taken a step in this direction.

Note: There are still some limitations - SOA Suite/OSB - for example don't yet support the ability to propagate the entire identity context.

OSB and OWSM integration enhancements - 11g

In my previous post, I described one of the key features that we added in OWSM for PS6 was support for securing REST services. I forgot to mention that another key addition in PS6 relates to the OSB/OWSM integration. The integration has been enhanced to address some of the more common issues that were raised by customers.

Two key enhancements in this area include:

a) Support for securing OSB REST services with OWSM Policies.

Note: OSB has not certified all the REST security policies OWSM supports in PS6.

b) Support for Attachments (MTOM, SwA) and OWSM security policies

More details on what is supported in OSB in PS6 can be found here.

In this blog I will discuss mainly features supported by Oracle Web Service Manager (OWSM).
