OAuth 2.0 is a widely adopted standard for authorization, but it can be complex to implement correctly. It's not uncommon for developers to have difficulty understanding the nuances of the OAuth 2.0 flow and instead rely on simpler approaches such as using API keys in "god mode."
Modern applications and environments are driving a new Identity Fabric. Are you ready to build yours? Join Vadim Lander, Chief Technology Office and Distinguished Engineer at Broadcom Software, as he discusses the design considerations to evolving your Identity and Access Management solution to build a Zero Trust foundation and bridge the identity gap across your hybrid environment.
A digital twin is a virtual representation of a real-life subject. This mapping encompasses its entire lifecycle, is updated from real-time data, and uses simulation, machine learning, and reasoning to support decision-making.
Human beings and their behavior can also be copied and simulated by digital twins. During the last talk at the EIC conference, we already looked at the threats, challenges and opportunities creating digital twins in cybersecurity.
This time we want to discuss how we can dive into a world through a digital twin of a cybercriminal to change perspectives and to understand the cybercriminals behavior.
Imagine having a tool that can perform these simulations at the highest level. Why not use it to our own advantage?
A digital twin that not only simulates the approach and behavioral patterns of cyber criminals but can also predict ahead of time. What if we can turn the tables on cybercriminals by fighting fire with fire?
Identity governance and administration (IGA) is a mission-critical part of every business as it relates to security, compliance, and operations. For large, global enterprises like ABB, finding the right identity solution is especially important—and especially complex. With operations in over 100 countries, 180,000 employees and contractors, 13,000 servers, 6,500 applications, more than 100 HR systems, and a complex Active Directory implementation, this was a challenging undertaking.
In this session, attendees will learn how ABB leveraged its existing IT Service Management (ITSM) provider, ServiceNow, and Clear Skye, an identity governance and security solution built natively on the platform, to overcome the business complexities of implementing IGA. By aligning once locally managed systems across the business in one platform, ABB saves time, money, and frustration often associated with new tech integrations and onboarding processes. Stefan Lindner, Global Identity and Access Manager, will discuss how a strategic, platform-first approach to identity enables ABB to:
What’s the highest value platform feature you can offer your Kubernetes tenants? It might be standardizing workload identity and policy controls. In this session, we will discuss desirable properties for a workload identity and present a modern architecture built on SPIFFE and cert-manager which uses Open Policy Agent (OPA) for policy decisions. This should leave you with actionable ideas to help you re-evaluate your workload identity functionality and security posture.
As an identity professional, you're constantly studying and reviewing new technologies, new protocols, and new products within the space but you struggle for the best way to extract the value of these new shiny, items to benefit your organization. You've been told that a well-developed identity architecture plan is the best way solve business challenges and produce concrete results but your research and fully-notated diagrams have failed to engage your peers.
IAM is hard enough without the additional complexities that logistics companies face. Warehouses need to be secure, but it’s difficult to find an identity solution that’s suitable for short-term staff who don’t have or can’t use computers, mobile devices, or biometrics in their work environment. Until recently Decentralized Identity has been stuff of dreams, but that is rapidly changing and the lines between identity and authentication blurring even more. In this session, we’ll explore how a future powered by Decentralized Identity is offering logistics giant DB Schenker a path to stronger security while maintaining productivity in its warehouses—providing a fast, flexible and interoperable way for workers to verify their identity.
In 1994, Italian physicist Cesare Marchetti discovered something: cities expand as a function of transportation speed. In short, “transportation is the lifeblood of a city.” Innovation in transportation has driven the expansion of cities—from small, walkable areas to the sprawling, car-based metropolises, presenting a challenge for urban planners.
Identity in the modern organization faces a similar challenge: if transportation is the lifeblood of cities, then identity is the lifeblood of organizations. And our organizations are not ancient, walkable Rome, but modern, sprawling Atlanta—with identities and resources widely strewn around the globe.
Like urban planners, we face a nearly-intractable challenge: how can we provide access to resources and data easily while still meeting the stringent demands of security and compliance?
Thankfully, there appears to be a solution for both urban planning *and* identity, albeit from an unexpected source: Ordinary slime mold. Aka, “The Blob.”
We’ll learn from this simple organism, describe how its simple actions create complex systems that solve these sorts of “unsolvable” problems, and see how the Blob might “think” about identity.
The ICAO DTC Type 1 and de mDL standard are currently being used/prepared to be used in several pilots. What are lessons learned, what impact do the panellists see and or expect. Also the EU Digital Wallet will have an important role in these developments. The travel ecosystem connects public and private parties around a traveller. Using a digital identity in an ecosystem that crosses international borders and legal systems is complex, for passengers ànd stakeholders, and requires international standards for technology, data privacy and trust frameworks.
By now, organizations are well aware of the need for better protecting data and application with modern access management and authentication.
Thales and Microsoft partner to help organizations going passwordless to fight against phishing attacks. Thales and Microsoft experts Sarah Lefavrais and Thomas Detzner will talk about the role of Fido and other phishing resistant authentication methods like CBA in achieving Zero Trust approach.
Finding the right passwordless solution can be a daunting task. Searching the web for a passwordless authentication solution will present many options for various use cases. With so many options, how do you choose the solution that best meets your requirements?
This presentation will help guide you through the different FIDO standards, Passkeys and provide real-world examples of how they are being used today. We'll explore the benefits of FIDO, including increased security and improved user experience, and discuss the challenges and limitations.
If you're ready to say goodbye to passwords and embrace the future of passwordless authentication, join us and learn how to find the right FIDO solution for your passwordless needs.
