Identity Management with Spring Security. Presentation from SpringOne2GX, Chicago, 2011.
Application and platform security requirements are changing under the
influence of standards like OpenID and OAuth2, and the increasing
demand for lightweight and multi-language platforms. Everyone used to
be happy if they could implement single sign on for their Java web
applications. That's still important, but there is a growing demand
for more extensive Identity Management services, both in the
enterprise and for public web applications. CloudFoundry is a nice use
case for this new service model: it has multi-language support and
security requirements that go beyond simple single sign on. What does
that mean, and what does it mean for Spring Security? Come to this
presentation to find out.
