Policy Based Access Control with XACML 3.0

  • LANGUAGE: English DATE: Friday, October 22, 2010 TIME: 17:00 CET
Upcoming Webinars
Version 3 of the XACML standard could be a large stride forward towards a flexible and versatile access management. As opposed to traditional role-based access control systems, XACML is policy driven, not role driven. So, should we throw away now role-based access control? In this webinar, Kuppinger Cole´s Senior Analyst Felix Gaehtgens will talk about the improvements achieved with this new standard version and describe, how these improvements can influence current and future access control initiatives. Felix will be followed by former Burton Group Analyst and now Axiomatics Americas President Gerry Gebel, who will present together with his collegue David Brossard an impressive XACML 3.0 best practice with 200 Million users.

Axiomatics has been a pioneer in creating attribute based access control (ABAC) solutions based on the relatively new access control markup language XACML. With so far limited  practical experience, data on performance and scalability of solutions based on this standard have been rare and many professionals have been in doubt regarding it´s maturity.  

"ABAC and XACML can be trusted as proven and scalable options. Extensive evaluations that have been carried out by our recent customers in the financial industries have clearly shown that our XACML based technology is mature and extremely scalable.", says Axiomatic´s Finn Frisch., describing their latest project which supports a giant number of 200 million users.

Considering the fact, that externalized authorization significantly reduces time-to-market when new services are to be deployed, ABAC would make it much easier, to rapidly and securely provision new services with sensitive information. In this webinar, KuppingerCole's Senior Analyst Felix Gaehtgens will talk about the potentials of XACML 3.0, and how it could revolutionise the way that access management and access compliance is handled.

Following Felix, Axiomatics' Gerry Gebel and David Brossard will show how Axiomatics is utilizing the features of its newly launched entitlement management solution, APS 4.0, with the new XACML 3.0 standard, in the world's largest deployment of XACML based authorization to date. When fully deployed the system will protect hundreds of applications, utilize thousands of rules and attributes and support more than 200 million users.

Creating Secure and Unified Next Generation Workspaces

A key challenge in every organization is making sure that the right tools are available, in the right place, at the right time, for the right people. The continual on and off boarding of large groups of employees, external workforces or partners creates increased pressure on administrative teams within an organization. An overall change towards diverse end-user devices, both corporate and privately owned, adds a new dimension of complexity, while compliance and security requirements challenge IT, CISOs and executive management.
