Panel | APIs - Where Security Meets Identity Management
Sep 14, 2021

Traditional IAM models have focused on users, policies, and roles, which met the needs of web applications in years past but as application development has evolved to APIs, an innovative approach to identity management is required. It is no longer just users, roles, and permissions. APIs must be integrated into the identity and access management framework to ensure adequate governance and security.

Within an API there is a requestor (often on behalf of a user), a service (API), and the data that is being passed. All these entities in the transaction require unique identity and authorization; without identity, compliance and enforcement mandates cannot be met effectively and without authorization, there is a free-for-all on your APIs reminiscent of Cambridge Analytica and Facebook.

In this session, we will look at how rapid digitalization (first and third-party APIs + multi-or hybrid-cloud environments) has complicated security efforts, the role of API integration in data governance, and how companies can best navigate the heightened cyber-threat environment we find ourselves in today.

- Why API security requires more than traffic policy management and course-grained enforcement.
- Why APIs need to be integrated into the identity and access management framework to ensure adequate governance and security.
- How companies can reduce the burden on developers to allow for a proactive approach to API security instead of reactive.

The #FutureOfMobility is decentralized
Sep 14, 2021

Mobility-as-a-service is changing the way people move. From mobility based on driving your own car, it is converging to the consuming of various services using multiple modes of transportation. Ranging from eScooters, bicycles, ride-sharing to car-sharing, ride-hailing and public transport.

Mission Possible or How to Implement Automated Identity Lifecycle in a 200 years old Enterprise
Sep 15, 2021

Identity Lifecycle automation project in Swedbank lasted for 4 years. During all those years I fulfilled business analyst role in IAM area. I collected requirements, draw process models, and did detailed analysis. I also defined minimum viable scope of the project and drove the team to reach the goal. Finally, I did acceptance testing. I can share key activities for business analyst throughout different phases of the project.
* Get descriptions or describe yourself HR-processes, which are related to identity area.
* Get descriptions/explanations of data feeds from HR-systems.
* Describe your needs to HR-system development team, such as future employment changes, deputies etc in advance.
* Trust but verify: ask for example files /data. Perform data analysis to makes sure, that previous descriptions and processes are valid.
* Just acknowledge that “roll-out” of new processes is not one day activity, this can last for multiple months and must be treated and described as a separate process.

* Help developers with clarifying tiny details from stakeholders
* Document the details
* Control the scope and drive team to do correct prioritization
* Discuss alternative solutions to implement same business need

* Rehearse migration
* Rehearse roll-out
* If testing resource is limited – verify major business cases. Prolong pilot period to see rare business cases in production.

* Define different scopes and roll-out in smaller scopes (to keep incidents queue managed)
* Start roll-out from the process, that has smaller impact on acting employees (In our case we decided to start roll-out with leaver)
* Set up regular meetings with major stakeholders to inform them about changes in the processes. Good if you managed to agree on convenient communication channels (such as chat in Teams) between operational teams to be able to resolve incidents quickly.

* Verify not only concrete cases, but also analyze the data.
* Agree on convenient way of communicating issues/bugs/questions to developers.
* Resolve incidents and fix bugs as quickly as possible, so that operating units don’t feel alone with software/data issues.


Key takeaways:


* Everything is possible but
* Define viable minimum
* Management team must be involved and work for your project. Your project must be a priority for all stakeholders / involved parties
* Start roll-out from the end
* Find a way to analyze your data to make sure, that everything is ok

The Rise of the Developer in IAM
Sep 13, 2021

Everything is famously code today—cars are computers with wheels, appliances have Internet access, smart doors and houses are controlled from mobile phone apps. With all this code around, security is more of a challenge than ever. A central pillar of security is identity management: the technology that protects logins and controls access. This, too, is becoming code to work with all the other code. Libraries for developers are essential, including ID controls in mobile and Web applications for initial sign on, single sign-on, federated sign-on, biometric authentication systems, and controlling access to sensitive data. And code itself is becoming code: automation systems for producing code, deploying code, updating code, configuring resources and access controls. IAM code has to be wherever it’s needed, when it’s needed, and automated, just like any other code. The better we do this, the more secure we all are with our ubiquitous computers.
