New Blog at SmokingMonkey.org


Today, I imported all entries from this blog into my new WordPress blog at smokingmonkey.org. I'm using GoDaddy to host and installed my own instance of Wordpress. I plan to double-post content to both sites for the forseeable future. Figured it was time to have my own space to blog so I could be more irreverent then ever!

IDM Buzz Podcast: ROA, OAuth, REST Services and OpenSSO


Last week I had the opportunity to record an IDM Buzz Podcast with Michael Cote of Redmonk and Jamie Nelson, Sun's Director of Engineering for OpenSSO.

In this episode we discuss the latest OpenSSO Express 9 launch and our new Fine-Grained Authorization (FGA) capabilities. We also explain why we chose a Resource Oriented Architecture when designing our FGA solution and did some therapy with Cote to help him deal with his exposure to a shaved, punk rock cat (we're hoping his health care covers the session).

Next-Generation Fine-Grained Entitlement Enforcement Using OpenSSO


As we near the end of the year, Kuppinger Cole and Sun Microsystems will take an in-depth look at how you can externalize authorization using next-generation technology that scales! Analyst Felix Gaehtgens will review the market and provide insight into what's ahead, and Sun Chief Identity Strategist Daniel Raskin will share exciting news about how customers can use OpenSSO to implement a repeatable, scalable process for externalizing authorization.

Register Now for this free Webinar to learn more about:

\* What's happening in the market regarding externalized authorization
\* Key trends and priorities
\* Actions you should think about for 2010 and beyond
\* Fine-grained entitlement enforcement in OpenSSO Express 9

While other vendors offer fine-grained entitlement enforcement as a standalone solution, Sun's OpenSSO is the only solution to deliver access management, federation, secure Web services and now fine-grained entitlement enforcement — all in a single application.

OpenSSO & Layer 7: End-to-End Web Services Security

Last week I recorded a new Identity Buzz Podcast with K. Scott Morrison, Layer 7 CTO & Chief Architect. We discussed the Sun OpenSSO Enterprise / Layer 7 SecureSpan Gateway integration. The combined Sun / Layer 7 solution offers a powerful one-two punch when trying to conquer web services security.

Essentially, the solution allows you to deploy SecureSpan as a policy enforcement point and OpenSSO as a Policy Decision Point when abstracting and centralizing authentication and authorization for your company's web services. The SecureSpan Gateway is a nice complement to OpenSSO because it inserts an abstraction layer between the web service requesters and web service endpoints in order to govern and secure their transactions. Rather than having to deploy a local agent to protect every web service you can implement a gateway that acts as a broker to all your services.

To learn more about this integration listen to our latest Identity Buzz Podcast on the topic.
