Cyber Security is one of the pillars of digital transformation. It is no longer just an IT issue, it’s a business challenge. If you want to learn about this topic, meet specialists, network with peers the CyberSec Conference is the place to go in Switzerland. SmartWave and Axway support this conference for the second year as official sponsors.
There are at least 2 good reasons why you should attend this conference:
- Discover a digital securization case in a Swiss insurance company during a dedicated session: “WebSSO - The API gateway approach” the 5th of November at 14:45:
An insurance company wanted to extend their services online to Partners and Customers. Each population having its own identity data store, ranging from dedicated Identity Providers (IdP) and social networks’IdPs to local directories, they where in a siloed identity environment with no single unified authoritative source. To face the common issues of siloed identity environment, this insurance company retained a federated identity architecture, to provide the populations with SSO.
The first challenge to face in this project was the heterogeneity of the authentication methods. Web applications and services support different authentication methods and these methods can evolve regarding the internal or external access to application. This is where the API gateway approach makes sense. It provides with a loose-coupled approach to authentication with a perimetric layer in charge of the federation with different IdPs, an outbound layer in charge of the authentication to applications and in between a core layer in charge of token translation. Moreover, this solution enables us to handle the second challenge of this project, the Kerberos authentication for external users, using a dedicated service from the API gateway.
