Identity Management Buzz TV Videos from DIDW 2008

At DIDW 2008 last September, Daniel Raskin, Nick Wooler and I, among others, recorded a series of videos covering various aspects of identity management. I just went and watched the first in the series - a fascinating discussion between Daniel and Felix Gaehtgens of Kuppinger Cole - 'Open Source in Identity'.

One thing I noticed, on looking through the series, is that the number of views varies widely between the videos - from as little as 22 to more than 4000. There's some great stuff in there, well worth watching, so here are all the videos, have a browse through and see what takes your fancy...

Open Source in Identity - Felix discusses the advantages of identity management in open source with Daniel Raskin.

Identity Bus - Felix chats with Daniel about varying industry perspectives on the identity bus and Sun's Security Token Service.

Speaking at CSI 2008, Washington, DC, November 17 2008

The good people at the Computer Security Institute have invited me to speak at their CSI 2008 conference as part of an Identity 'summit panel' considering topics in the field of identity, federation and security. Jim Nelson of New Mexico State University is moderating the panel, with John Petze of Privaris, Robert Richardson of the Computer Security Institute and Pamela Dingle of Nulli Secundus also speaking. If you have a taste for the CardSpacey side of digital identity, Pamela's name will be very familiar from her work at OSIS.

Although the conference site lists the summit as running from 11:00am - 5:00pm on Monday, November 17th, 2008, my understanding is that the panel sessions will run 11am-noon, 1:45pm-2:45pm, and 4pm-5pm. Come along and see where the conversation takes us!

From the Trenches - Daniel Raskin on Simplifying Federated Access Management

Tech author Marina Sum over at Sun Developer Network continues her series of interviews; this time in the hot seat is Daniel Raskin, senior product line manager for access and federation management at Sun.

In the interview, Daniel lifts the lid on some of the cool new features coming up in Sun Federated Access Manager 8.0 (and, of course, available NOW in OpenSSO), including Fedlets, Virtual Federation, the Federation Validator and more. Exciting stuff!

Fame! Well, an interview at Sun Developer Network...

From the shameless self-promotion dept...

Hot on the heels of her interview with Jamie last week, Marina's latest subject is... me!

Sadly, my suggested title of "Sun's Rising Identity Superstar" was rejected in favor of the far less exciting "OpenSSO, a Thriving Community". Oh well...

From the Trenches - Jamie Nelson on Web Access Management

Sun Developer Network tech author Marina Sum starts a new series of interviews this week with OpenSSO's benevolent dictator and Sun's director of engineering for access and federation management, Jamie Nelson (my boss, so I'd better be careful here!).

In the interview, Jamie explains how web developers need to consider security, but, at the same time, avoid hard-coding it into their apps. Some great tips and useful links for any web developer - read the article here!

Federated Identity Through the Eyes of the Deployer

As I just reported over at The Aquarium, Eve and Marina recently published Federated Identity Through the Eyes of the Deployer - what it is, why you might want it and what questions to ask as you architect a federated identity system.

As I mentioned on The Aquarium, Eve was a key player in defining XML, SAML and more. What you might not know is that Eve is also a talented musician, shining even when accompanied by those less gifted in the art, such as here, at IIW2006b:

Here be the lyrics.

Paul Bryan Interviewed at Sun Developer Network

As I just mentioned over at The Aquarium, Marina Sum recently published a short interview with Paul Bryan, in which Paul talks about OpenID, OpenSSO and the fight against phishing and identity theft.

OpenSSO participants and regular readers will recognize Paul's name - he was the very first external committer on the OpenSSO project, back in 2006. Paul went on to write the OpenID Extension for OpenSSO (since deployed at openid.sun.com) before joining Sun in October 2007. While we were sad to 'lose' an external committer, we were very happy to welcome Paul to Sun.

Go read the interview and be sure to leave a comment - this short interview format is new and Marina is looking for your feedback.

All-New Fall Schedule

I have a packed schedule this fall - well, packed for me, anyway:

First up, next week, is Digital ID World at the Hilton in San Francisco. I'll be there for Sun's reception on Monday evening and the Concordia workshop on Wednesday. The last Concordia workshop, colocated with Burton Catalyst, back in June, gave some great insights into some real-world identity interoperability, with George Fletcher of AOL [PDF], Mike Beach of Boeing [PDF], Jim Heaton of GM [PDF], Ian Bailey of the BC Government [PDF] and Georgia Marsh of GSA [PDF] explaining the interop issues they are facing, as well as some notable successes. This time round, representatives of Chevron, InCommon and the State Services Commission of the New Zealand Government will be presenting. Admission is free - just add yourself to the wiki.

Next month, from October 23rd to 25th, is the Liberty Alliance plenary meeting in Tokyo. The plenary meeting is Liberty members-only, but there is an open workshop day on the Friday. On the packed bill are Roger Sullivan of Oracle, Makoto Hatakeyama of NEC, Paul Madsen of NTT, Prateek Mishra of Oracle, Yukio Itakura of the Institute of Information Security, Colin Wallis of the New Zealand State Services Commission, Ken Ojiri of NTT, Brett McDowell of the Liberty Alliance, Kenji Takahashi of NTT and my good self. I will be presenting an update on open source identity at Sun - OpenSSO, OpenDS and... well, you'll have to wait and see. The event is free - just register here.

November brings my first ever trip to Raleigh, North Carolina, on November 8th, to talk to the Triangle Linux Users Group. They've given me 2 hours (the fools!) to wax lyrical on identity from LDAP to SAML and beyond. Attendance is free and open, so, if you're in the Triangle area, come along. It starts at 7pm and, apparently, there is pizza.

Finally, in December, the good folks at Javapolis in Antwerp have kindly invited me to present 3 sessions - one each on SAML 2.0, Liberty ID-WSF 2.0 and OpenSSO. Hmm - I must submit those abstracts... I'm afraid you have to pay this time, but, at 410 Euros for the entire week (December 10th - 14th), it's great value. Here's the registration page.

So - there you have it - come along to one of the events, say hi, eat pizza and find out about identity, federation and OpenSSO
