At the Tropicana in Las Vegas, hard at work on a new generation of product demos for Federated Access Manager 8.0. Lots of folks here from Sun’s SE community and the product group. Lots of bloggers, too – looking around the room I can see Terry, Rajeev, Derrick, Daniel, Sidharth, Wajih, Mark, Scott, Nick and Jeff – nearly half the attendees, in fact.
Following on from last June’s Sun Developer Network article on Basic Authorization with Sun Java System Access Manager, Robert Skoczylas of Indigo Consulting and Sun tech author Marina Sum recently published a second article, Developing Secure Applications with Sun Java System Access Manager, Part 2: Advanced Authorization.
This time, Robert and Marina look at how Sun Java System Access Manager can be used as a general purpose policy store, and, with some customization, can provide fine-grained authorization for UI elements rendered by both Java and .NET web applications. This is a great article to read if you’ve wondered how Access Manager can be used to authorize access to resources other that the usual web page URLs.
