Multi Region - Multi Hyperscaler: The Crucial Role of Identity Providers in Modern IT Architecture and How to Ensure Their Availability
In a modern Zero Trust based IT architecture, the IDP is one of the most central components and therefore one of the most critical ones. As all the requests within the network need to be authenticated, its robustness directly correlates with the overall integrity and continuity of digital and therefore-business operations. Not only the availability but also low latency is key in global distributed ecosystems. As experience has shown, one hyperscaler can’t guarantee this high demand...

How to Build a Cyber Resilient Infrastructure
Cybersecurity is the biggest challenge of our time. Organizations don't need to deal with the question if they might be affected, they have to face the challenge of how fast they are able to recover once hit by a cyber incident. Data protection as the “last line of defense” is particularly important, but data protection begins well before backup and recovery and goes far beyond creating an incident response plan. This presentation addresses approaches to how a modern cyber...

Advancing Secure Credentialing: The Impact of Non-Interactive Threshold Signature Schemes
In the realm of identity management within zero trust security frameworks, the "never trust, always verify" paradigm is critical. This approach, a departure from traditional IT security models, assumes no inherent trust in users, devices, or networks, regardless of their location or origin. It emphasizes continuous verification and authentication, fundamentally changing the way access and credentials are managed. In this context, the role of signature schemes in credential issuance is...
