XACML Based Authorization - Considerations for an Efficient and Flexible Architecture
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Thursday, November 11, 2010 TIME: 17:00 CET, 11am EST
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.

From May 2018 when the upcoming EU GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) comes into force, the requirements for managing personal data will change. Companies collecting such information from their customers will have to adapt to fundamental changes both in the very definition of personal data and in technical requirements around its secure and privacy-enhanced processing, including topics like consent management, data portability and the right to be forgotten. You will also understand why leading companies, however, will look beyond compliance to how they can enhance their customers’ experience and trust to stand out from their competitors.
Managing customer information in a digitally transformed economy with numerous business partners demanding access is one of the most significant challenges today, and it will continue to evolve rapidly. Besides that, the challenge is to offer user-friendly login procedures via social media accounts, passwords or biometric devices while securing and respecting personal data at the same time CIW Europe is a joint Event with our Partner CXP (Le Groupe CXP, Paris, France).
