Protecting Sensitive Data in SOA Suite 12c by Jennie DeRosa

clip_image002

Given the recent security breaches, data security should always be a concern when designing and creating IT solutions. In particular, what are some considerations that should be made when implementing a solution within the Oracle SOA Suite? Is it sufficient to protect the data using WS-Security/SSL or is additional security needed? If you have sensitive data traversing through the SOA Suite then additional security must be considered.

As noted within the National Institute Standards and Technology (NIST) publication, ‘to appropriately protect the confidentiality of personally identifiable information (PII), organizations should use a risk-based approach’. To understand what is considered PII, or sensitive data, along with recommendations to protect PII read Guide to Protecting the Confidentiality of Personally Identifiable Information.

WS-Security and SSL only will protect data outside a SOA composite or Service Bus. Once the data hits either one of these, it is viewable in clear text within audit trails, console or logs. This means sensitive data is viewable within the console and log, causing this data to be unencrypted at rest. An example of this is shown below. Anyone with access to EM (Enterprise Manager) could view the sensitive data just by opening the audit trail of a process:

SOA Suite 12c – Business Events and Consistency Levels by Siva

clip_image002

I have chosen Business Events as first feature to explore in recent release of SOA Suite12c. Also, I want to cross verify my earlier observations in 11g.

The initial observation is, now the new SOA project will have the folders for different artifacts and the folder Events is for edl files.

Secondly, 12c   supports One and Only one and  Guaranteed consistency only and no longer supports immediate. Also new property Durable is added to event subscriptions.

Even migration of 11g composites to 12c is resulting into error, if composite uses immediate consistency level. We have to manually make this change by choosing either of the 2 supported consistency levels. Read the complete article here.

SOA Magazine IV published


SOAMagazineCover4The SOA Magazine IV edition focuses on Industrial SOA articles which showcase that SOA is much more than a web service. Rolando Carrasco and Arturo Viveros showcase in their SOA Myth Busters article the evolution of the SOA Suite towards a complete platform over the last 10 years. An industrial SOA platform contains also API management to secure web services, as well b2b as a trading hub between external partners.

What is the use case for Business Process Management versus Services Oriented Architecture. SOA is mainly used for data mediation and process orchestration between different IT systems. BPM is focused on automation on human based processes like an employee holiday request. Key is to re-use the SOA web services for your BPM deployment. In our holiday request example we can re-use a web service from the HR system which informs the employee of the available holidays. In this magazine edition you learn on the BPM Side more about Gateways and how Link Consulting is using a generator to create Human tasks. Thanks to Mark Foster who highlights in his article 10 best practices for SOA Suite and BPM Suite a must read!

This quarterly newsletter is for both customers and partners who are active in the SOA space. The content includes articles for IT decision makers, architects and developers. The goal of the newsletter is to update you on the latest SOA technologies, market studies, trainings & certifications and conferences. We publish the newsletter in English and some articles will be in Portuguese specially for the Brazilian marketing, thanks to Ricardo Puttini and his team. Contribution is open for everybody! We want to publish your content! Like case studies, best practice, technical examples and solutions and conferences. Feel free to submit your content to Marcello Marinho (Portuguese articles) & Jürgen Kress (for English articles).
