Security is a key aspect of any successful enterprise SOA solution.
The Enterprise Service Bus is usually the entry point to an enterprise SOA solution. It is also the central place through which the incoming and outgoing messages flow, thus making it the most relevant location to enforce security measures of the solution.
This presentation which was used in a webinar, goes through the recurring problems and requirements in the space of identity, security and access control of a SOA solution along with the security patterns that can be applied to overcome them using the WSO2 ESB as a security gateway. Use cases are taken from a Healthcare SOA solution to illustrate these challenges and the corresponding solution patterns that can be designed to overcome them.
