From A (ACLs) to Z (Zanzibar): Standardizing Access Policies with IDQL/Hexa

Combined Session
Wednesday, May 10, 2023 15:50—16:10

The adoption of multiple clouds is accelerating across all industries. While multi-cloud brings many benefits, it also results in new challenges. Organizations must manage platform-specific access policies in the bespoke policy syntax of each cloud.
Security and risk gaps arise between cloud identity systems due to the increased policy fragmentation and technical complexity that can obscure visibility and make it difficult to determine who has access to what.
These challenges grow exponentially when you consider the various access policies (and system languages) associated with each data, network, and platform layer (and vendor) in an organization’s tech stack.
This session will describe an open-source solution to multi-cloud access policy fragmentation: Identity Query Language (IDQL) and Hexa Orchestration. IDQL and Hexa are two sides of the same coin that together perform policy orchestration across incompatible cloud platforms.
IDQL is the universal declarative policy language that can be translated into a target system's proprietary or bespoke access policy format. Hexa is the open-source reference software that brings IDQL to life and makes it operational in the real world by connecting to target systems and performing the three main functions of discovery, translation, and orchestration.
Hexa Policy Orchestration was recently accepted as a Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) sandbox project. The session will include a technical review of Hexa plus a demonstration of current capabilities.
