Federated Identity Management in a Service Oriented World

Join me as I present to the Perth .NET Community of Practice on Federated Identity Management in a Service Oriented World. The session synopsis is below:

Gone are the good old days of siloed applications that identify users with a simple username/password combination stored in the application database. In today’s world of Internet based e-commerce where secure transactions occur over insecure open networks and in a service oriented world of composite applications where identity must be shared between systems hosted by different organisations on disparate platforms; in a world where increasing numbers of businesses are turning to hosting their applications in the cloud, and where users from partner organisations need to be securely granted access to enterprise resources, architects are turning to an ever increasingly complex array of security solutions to solve their identity woes.

How do we as mere mortals make sense of PKI, Kerberos, SAML, and a plethora of WS-* standards aimed at addressing these concerns? This session will provide a clear and practical description of how to apply today’s security technologies in order to effectively manage and share identity across applications, service and organisational boundaries.

DATE: Thursday, September 4, 5:30pm

Any chance of having it filmed and posted on your site for those of us offshore?

Hi Allan,

I've put in a request with the event organiser to see if we can get the session recorded. If so, the recording will be made available via my blog.

Cheers,
Bill
