Secure Identity Propagation using WS-Trust, WS-Security, and SAML2 — IBM Impact, 2011 Session

On April 13th, 2011, Ryan Triplett and I spoke at IBM Impact in Las Vegas.  The topic was “Secure Identity Propagation using WS-Trust, WS-Security, and SAML2“.  The PowerPoint presentation can be found here.  The original abstract:

This session will explore hypothetical requirements for a secure identity propagation solution between Service Providers and Service Consumers participating in a Service Oriented Architecture that uses DataPower as an internal ESB.  We will explore how a successful architect might deploy JAX-WS Web Services and clients in Websphere Application Server 7.0 and DataPower as an ESB.

WAS, DataPower, and TFIM configuration details are briefly reviewed.  Then, we will explore the relevant specifications and explain the function each fills in the system.  Attendees will be introduced to a fusion of theory and practical implementation culminating in usable information that can be applied to their organization’s identity propagation needs.
