With the Cambrian Explosion of Everything upon us, the number of devices, identities, assertions and connections is outstripping traditional technologies to manage SSO. The most used underlying protocol to manage SSO and Federated Naming has been the Security and Access Markup Language (SAML) protocol. The problem is, all of the management solutions built using SAML require SSO provisioning to be started, maintained and ended by a system administrator. SAML--in its current state--has no mechanism to allow for programmatic automation to be implemented. This leads to the question of whether SAML has already been relegated to a legacy that cannot be revived--or not. Join us for a discussion of the issues around this highly relevant and important topic.
As companies adopt numerous new technologies and establish new communications channels with their partners, suppliers or even customers, the amounts of sensitive information that’s stored across on-premises systems and cloud services are growing exponentially, and the task of managing secure access to this data by numerous third parties is quickly getting out of control. Hence, instead of managing access to individual systems with separate technology stacks, many companies are looking for more universal and future-proof alternatives, aiming for establishing granular, centrally-managed policies enforced across the whole corporate IT environment.
