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).

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.
