San Antonio, TX 78229
Scattered software applications with differing security policies are a
bane of today's IT departments, consuming a large chunk of support and
maintenance budget. Single Sign-On is one of the technical controls
available to CIOs and CSOs for providing security in depth to a
corporation while reducing maintenance costs. In this talk I will
walk-through a typical SSO implementation from making a case for SSO to
deploying and maintaining the SSO process. Multiple SSO architectures
will be presented and merits and demerits of each of the architectures
will be discussed. Commercial offerings and open source SSO tools in
this space are also presented.
Vijay Kumar is a software architect with 15+ years of design and
development experience in the retail, banking, insurance, and software
tools domain. He is currently working as a technical lead with MSD Inc
in Austin, TX. Prior to the current assignment, Vijay worked as an
Enterprise architect with Lockheed Martin IT and an Applications
Architect with Partnerware Inc.=20
