This month's topic is "Identity and Access Management" by Ram Sreerangam.
Ram will explain the Identity and Access Management range of the security spectrum. Web applications authentication typically uses various roles based on business needs. This explores the larger context of user and role management through examples based in IBM Tivoli Identity Manager and Tivoli Access Manager.
About the speaker: Ram graduated from Perry Mason thrillers to reading about Pascal, C, C++ and OOP by the time he was 16. His corporate life started on IBM mainframes, but it wasn't long before he was back into Java and C++. Following 9/11 Ram was thrown into security where he dabbled in the Identity and Access Management space. He is very fortunate to add to his geek credentials by gaining soft skills (very important skill for security folks) in dealing with "situations" on numerous occasions in a customer facing role. Ram also loves the outdoor pursuits of Colorado.
