XACML Based Authorization - Considerations for an Efficient and Flexible Architecture

Attribute based authorization, using XACML, is the vanguard approach for enforcing business and security policies in the 21st century. However, XACML does not live by policies alone - it consumes privilege-granting attributes from various identity sources. For this webinar, KuppingerCole have brought together pioneers in XACML and attribute management, Axiomatics and Radiant Logic respectively, to discuss architectural considerations for a standards based solution to externalize authorization. KuppingerCole´s Senior Analyst Felix Gaehtgens will interview Gerry Gebel, David Brossard (Axiomatics) and Lisa Grady (Radiant Logic) on how an XACML based authorization solution should be architected and implemented to gain the most business value.

Attribute based access control (ABAC) based on the XACML standard offers a wealth of new opportunities. Successful implementations in turn depend on efficient retrieval of attributes from the various data sources in which they are being maintained. One strength of the ABAC approach is that maintenance of privilege giving attributes can be embedded in existing business processes rather than demanding a separate layer of costly IAM bureaucracy. But again, this of course calls for robust integration with the systems used to support these business processes in ways that can support corporate governance requirements.

For this webinar, KuppingerCole has brought together two vendors from related fields who combined offer a platform addressing these key success factors: Axiomatics, a leading provider of XACML based authorization solutions, and Radiant Logic, a specialist on virtual directories and their use for identity management and enterprise information integration. Based on their experience from integrations between Axiomatics Policy Server and Radiant Logic's virtual directory, KuppingerCole will lead a discussion on architectural considerations for a standards based solution to externalize authorization. KuppingerCole´s Senior Analyst Felix Gaehtgens will interview Gerry Gebel, David Brossard (Axiomatics) and Lisa Grady (Radiant Logic) on how an XACML based authorization solution should be architectured and implemented to avoid bad surprises.
