Entitlement Management - Business and Technical Perspectives
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Tuesday, January 20, 2009 TIME: 17:00 - 17:45 CET (16:00 UTC)
The question on how to control and secure access to resources has become an even more critical topic, as monolithic applications more and more become legacy and service oriented architectures (SOA) are taking over the regime. In this webinar we will give an overview of the emerging field of Entitlement Management and the XACML standard as a possibility to externalize identity management into an abstraction layer across multiple applications and services.
The question on how to control and secure access to resources has become an even more critical topic, as monolithic applications more and more become legacy and service oriented architectures (SOA) are taking over the regime. SOA is flexible on the one hand, but securing access to services is significantly more challenging than it has been in monolithic environments, where "traditional" access management and provisioning solutions have brought at least some relief.
But times are changing and regulatory compliance requirements demand for more than just the answer on the question who has access to what application. Companies nowadays have to be able to prove who has access to what specific resources, who granted access, and why that access is necessary. Being able to properly answer such questions requires a standard way to create entitlement-related authentication, authorization, attributes, controls, and auditing information across all applications and identity resources. These identity related functions have to be externalized from applications into an abstraction layer and thus be made available throughout the enterprise (and beyond).
In this webinar we will give an overview of the emerging field of Entitlement Management and the XACML standard. We will discuss the benefits and business advantages of this technology and explain its role in the larger area of Identity and Access Management. XACML is an open standard for authorization and access control. The second version (XACML 2) has long been ratified, version 3 is under active development, and vendors are adopting it.
What does this mean for today's enterprises? What does XACML try to solve, and what are the benefits? Who is adopting it and how? How does XACML fit in with role management, compliance and fine grained authorisation? What makes XACML so important?
In this Webinar, Kuppinger Cole Senior Analyst Felix Gaehtgens will give an introduction to XACML and present the findings from Kuppinger Cole's recently published XACML technology report. After this introduction, Babak Sadighi and Dr. Ludwig Seitz, both from Axiomatics, will talk about experiences they collected during large scale implementation projects.

IT endpoints are no longer just workstations and servers confined to corporate headquarters, branch offices, customer sites, and data centers, they can now be just about anything located anywhere, from employee homes to airports, hotels and in the cloud. But every endpoint represents a potential entry point for cyber attackers, and needs to be managed.
