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.
Business landscape is changing rapidly where most organizations, irrespective of the vertical, are transforming themselves into technology organizations. With the adoption of Internet of Things (IoT), the number of connected entities has increased significantly. Managing identities of people, things and other objects in an automated and predictive manner is becoming the new norm. Simultaneously, the burgeoning number of identities exposes a broader attack surface posing a big challenge to these organizations and their growth plans.
European Identity & Cloud Conference 2017 is the place where identity management, cloud, and information security thought leaders and experts get together to discuss and shape the future of secure, privacy-aware agile, business- and innovation-driven IT. The EIC has become a kind of family gathering, the place where the global identity and cloud community meets every year. So take the opportunity to meet IT professionals and colleagues who are involved in this community, get advice from people who are fervent about IAM and Cloud Security.
