Slides from my RSA Conference session: “SOA-401 – Federated SOA: Harmonizing ID Security and Web Services”

I just uploaded the slides from my RSA Conference presentation last week: Federated SOA: Harmonizing ID Security and Web Services.

A few words of explanation on the opening slides... Sara Gates was originally booked to present in this slot. As you almost certainly already know, Sara left Sun a little while ago, and I inherited her slot. So, my opening gimmick was to introduce myself as Sara and then say "Of course, I'm not Sara, you can see and hear that, but how could a Web service tell the difference?". It was spoilt a little on the day by the RSA Conference announcer introducing me as Pat Patterson, but I made the point that if I had tried to introduce myself as Sara...

Anyway, in the presentation, I start from the position of unprotected web service interactions, working through transport-layer security via TLS/SSL to point-to-point message-layer security to Liberty Alliance's Identity Web Service Framework (ID-WSF), pointing out the different properties of each level. The session was recorded - I'm not sure if the recording will be publicly available, but, if so, I'll update this entry with a URL when it goes online.
